ABOUT ALTA

Halifax ALTA Gymnastics Club was founded in 1991 when Keiji Yamanaka, Tak Kikuchi, and Carleen Cavanaugh merged the two clubs NovaGold/Tumblebugs and Maritime Academy together. After 6 years at the South Street Gorsebrook gym, ALTA moved into our current building in 1997.

The name ALTA comes from the "Altius" (meaning "higher") part of the Olympic motto "Citius, Altius, Fortius" (faster, higher, stronger). Our motto has been inspiring our gymnasts to reach higher and achieve their fullest potential for 25 years.
