Watch out for the Cheetahs, ‘cause they’re on the move and their numbers are growing. Over the past two years, the Swan Valley Cheetahs Gymnastics Club has grown by leaps and bounds with almost 100 members now involved in various categories such as Kinder-gym, recreational, and pre-competitive classes, as well as competitive gymnasts who compete in four different levels. The youngsters range in age from two to fourteen and come from across the valley community as well as gymnasts from Ethelbert, Pine River, and Norquay SK.

With this surge in growth, new equipment had to be purchased to accommodate the needs of everyone from the youngest to the oldest. Financial assistance from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley helped purchase a new floor, an additional beam and various other training aides such as mats. As always, the Foundation was pleased to help these talented young people as they go on to compete and represent the valley area.
