Gymnastics coach suspended pending internal investigation of policy violations

The provisional suspension is in keeping with Gymnastics Canada’s complaint management protocol. The next step in the process will be the initiation of an investigation into the complaints and it is anticipated that the investigation may take up to a month to complete. In the meantime, Gymnastics Canada and Gymnastics Ontario will work closely with the Bluewater Club to ensure that the competition and training needs of all athletes in the Club remain well served.

Gymnastics Canada, Gymnastics Ontario, and the Bluewater Gymnastics Club are committed to a positive and safe sport environment for all participants in the sport of Gymnastics. 

Gymnastics Canada acknowledges, understands, and embraces our responsibility to take a leadership role in creating and preserving gymnastics environments that ensure positive, healthy, and fulfilling learning and training experiences for all of our participants. To that end, together with our provincial partners and member clubs, we are continuing to implement a safe sport framework for gymnastics across the country. This includes policy, education, and advocacy initiatives designed to help members identify potentially unsafe situations and to take proactive steps to ensure the safety and well-being of athletes, providing safe channels for athletes to communicate concerns with respect to their safety and well-being without risk of reprisals, and enhancing enforcement mechanisms for addressing individuals who breach safe sport policies.
