REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS - CANGYM REVITILIZATION

PROPOSAL DUE DATE: MAY 29, 2017

Gymnastics has been known as a “foundation sport” with strong connections to “physical literacy” long before these became buzzwords in the Canadian sporting community. To strengthen our position as a foundation sport and establish ourselves as leaders in the area of physical literacy, GCG is committed to developing a first involvement program that appropriately addresses the needs of the participant at the earliest stages of development.

In order to achieve this goal, “CanGym” in its current state must be revitalized. CanGym has been GCG’s skill testing program for developmental level gymnasts since the late 1970’s. The program (formally known as “Red, White and Blue”) was created as an incentive based avenue for the non-competitive gymnast to stay active in the sport while earning badges for mastering benchmark skills. Although the program was originally developed by technical gymnastics experts, very few updates have occurred to align the program with the evolving Canadian sport landscape.

The objective in the call for proposals is to select a Technical Contractor to lead the development of the technical program content for GCG’s CanGym Revitalization Project.
