Since 1979, Cobequid Spartans has been an important part of our community and has touched the lives of thousands of children. Currently over 700 children are part of the Cobequid Spartans family involved in our recreational and competitive programs. Since the beginning, Spartans has produced athletes that compete at
provincial, national and international levels.
Gymnastics and trampoline are sports that focus young minds, elevate fitness and develop self-discipline, confidence, coordination and team spirit. Your child’s time here at our gym is a building block in developing a love for healthy living and fitness that will become a life long habit.
When this facility opened over 37 years ago, our gym was the best-equipped facility east of Montreal. In 2016 we had to move from our former home located on the NSPE grounds because of an aging facility. Our current home is a temporary one and our goal is to build a new facility where the children of this community and surrounding areas can do what they love in a healthy and safe environment. We realize that it will be a huge undertaking, with no immediate tangible results, but we know that it is necessary to ensure the sustainability of our club for years to come. It has been talked about for many years, but now is the time for us to begin to plan for our future and the continued success of this club. It is projected that a new facility will cost upwards of $1.5 million dollars. We cannot do this without your help!
We began in May 2010 as part of your registration to issue tickets for cash draws to be held twice a year. The tickets must be purchased when you register. You then have the option to fill out the tickets yourself or sell them to family and friends to recover your costs. Proceeds from these events are used to offset the increased operational costs in our current temporary home and any excess is saved towards a new facility.
