Flip City Invitational success at Langley Events Centre

It was a great weekend, all around, for the host club at the Flip City Invitational gymnastics meet at the Langley Events Centre’s Fieldhouse.

“For the first competition of the Gymnastics BC 2015 season, we’re very proud of our athletes’ results and look forward to their continued improvement over the 2015 competitive season,” Flip City gymnastics president John Aldag said.

While the Jan. 16-18 competition marked its eighth year in Langley, this was the first time it was held at the Fieldhouse.

Flip City head coach Rusty Pierce noted that the Fieldhouse was “a great venue and met our needs completely.”

Added Aldag, “As a Langley-based club, we completely appreciate having the Fieldhouse in Langley as a venue for competitions such as the eighth annual Flip City Invitational.”

Twenty-two clubs, with more than 500 athletes, registered for this weekend, including the largest number of out-of-town clubs that Flip City has ever hosted.

Another new element this year was the transition of the women’s artistic program to the junior Olympic program that is based on a 10-point scale.  

Aldag noted that Gymnastics BC adopted this new scoring standard for the 2015.  

“Flip City is hosting the first competition under Gymnastic BC’s sanctioned events for 2015, thus making the Flip City Invitational the first competition to feature scoring using the Junior Olympic program in B.C.,” he added, before the invitational got underway. “This has meant a huge transition for athletes, coaches, and judges. We look forward to being the first to showcase this new judging standard to the gymnastics community in B.C.”
