Our Story

Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics is a  not- for-profit society, founded by Sev Heiberg in 1969. Sev was a man of high ideals and great personal generosity.  He built the Club on  traditions and values of generosity, sportsmanship, work ethic, honour and love of gymnastics. Read about our  Mission, Vision and Values.
 
We continue to embody these characteristics in our day-to-day work, and by following our Phoenix Values.  This has led graduates of the Phoenix program to continue in the sport of gymnastics into High School and beyond.  Today, they remain with us as coaches, judges, administrators, volunteers, and positive members of our community.  They often return with their children — the next generation of the Phoenix family.
 
The Club was also built on the spirit of volunteerism by our families.  Events such as family day, fundraising activities, parent education nights, competition hosting, year-end celebrations and cleanups are some of the many ways the Phoenix family has come together. It is this united effort that has allowed the Phoenix Family to attain such achievements as the fundraising to build our Millennium Sports Facility, which has become our home since 2005. Today, we are proud to say that we have grown into one of the largest, highly respected clubs in Western Canada.
