National Volunteer Week
April 12 - 18
Thank you Ortona Volunteers.
A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach-out far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock! Celebrate Canada’s volunteers this National Volunteer Week: http://volunteer.ca/nvw2015

Parking at the Saville Community Sports Centre
We continue to work with University Parking Services to ensure our valued customers have access to parking during their visits.
On event weekends like the one coming up Ortona adult members have implemented a drop off system to allow you to drop off your child at the front entrance. Ortona adult members will be out front of the building 15 minutes prior to each class on Saturdays to allow you to drop off your child to get walked into the building, to their class by an Ortona adult member.
Ortona adult member will be identified by Ortona clothing and signs. This drop off system will allow you as parents to go find parking and/or leave the facility while your child gets to their class on time. All parents must state to the parking attendants that you are dropping off at the front entrance for an Ortona class and they will allow you to continue.
Drop off Service will occur on the follow days:
Saturday April 11 - 8:45am to 12:45pm
Saturday April 18 - 8:45am to 12:45pm
Saturday April 25 - 8:45am to 12:45pm
Saturday May 02 - 8:45am to 12:45pm
Saturday May 16 - 8:45am to 12:45pm
Drop Off Process:
**Parents, you are required to come into the building to pick up your children after their classes. Coaches will not be releasing young athletes to leave the gymnasium on their own.

Who is Ortona? Gymnastics For All
Ortona Gymnastics Club, is a not-for-profit, independent sports organization that was founded in 1976. As one of the oldest gymnastics clubs in Edmonton, Ortona has a long history of community involvement, athlete development and child/youth sport activity and movement. Ortona is very proud of its legacy in the Edmonton community.
Why Choose Gymnastics
Gymnastics is the foundation for all sports and the ultimate human movement experience. Everyone can find something meaningful and beneficial in the sport, regardless of your age, your ability, or goals. It promotes self-esteem, self-discipline, and forms the healthy foundation for an active lifestyle. You are never too young -- or too old -- to gain something positive from the sport of gymnastics.
Why Choose Ortona?
We work hard to provide gymnastics and related programs that are accessible to all community members. We also strive to provide a platform to train competitive athletes to meet their maximum potential.
Whatever your gymnastics goals, Ortona can help you achieve them. For information on navigating the Ortona website, browse our menu or scroll down to Navigating This Site
