It's that time again! Our Lost and Found is overflowing with water bottles, hats, and all the other precious items that have been left behind at the gym over the last few months! Items will be displayed at both locations and on social media all week. Make sure to grab anything that's yours! Unclaimed items will be donated next week.
Classes are still running on July 30th and 31st, but Jump will be closed on Monday, August 1st, so there will be no classes that day. Enjoy the long weekend!
The gym in both locations will be closed June 28-July 3. Our offices will still be open for any inquiries, including registrations for Summer Term camps and classes, and Fall Term as well! See you on July 4 for Summer Term!
Both locations will be closed on Monday, May 23rd, but we will remain open this Saturday and Sunday! If you'll be absent on Saturday or Sunday, you can contact us to schedule a make-up class! Monday folks, you won't be missing anything because we stuck an extra Monday onto the end of the term :)

We've just received a notice that they'll be filming around Jump Yaletown on Thursday, October 29th so parking will be disrupted. Please take this into account when planning your trip to Jump tomorrow during the day and evening. Please call our Yaletown front desk if you have any questions.
Things are pretty tricky at Jump this week! In the spooktacular spirit of the season we've got some fun, active tricks your kids can play on our team in exchange for a (sugar-free) treat. Be sure to drop by our front desks in Yaletown and North Van this week to get in on the Halloween action. And after a lovely, dry fall it's ironic that it looks like it's going to be a wet night on October 31st. So why not take your kids to the 16th Annual Trick or Treat in Yaletown from 3:30 - 5:30 pm and then drop them at Jump for our Halloween Date Night from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm and head out for some ghoulish grown up fun of your own?
We're delighted to welcome Julie to North Vancouver as our Facility Leader. You'll see her coaching and keeping things shipshape when you're in the gym (and maybe even bouncing around!) so feel free to connect with her with your questions anytime! Julie hails from Germany and by way of introduction we've asked her a few questions to get to know her better and shared her answers here: Q. How long have you worked for Jump Gymnastics? A. I first started working for Jump in 2009 when I was last in Vancouver. In May 2015 I came back and started working at Jump Yaletown and transferred to Jump North Vancouver at the beginning of September.
Q. Do you have a background in athletics or other sports? A. When I was four years old I started with track and field. My disciplines were running long and short distances and jumping high and far. I kept doing it for over 10 years. When I turned six I also started with horseback riding and it is still a big part of my life. My favorite sports these days are snowboarding and swimming.
Back in Germany I used to work as a sports teacher for an elementary school, as a fitness coach for all ages and as a swim teacher for children. I did my education at a private sports academy for three years and have been working as a sports teacher since then.
Q. What's your favourite part about working with kids? A. Working with kids is always a pleasure and fun. Kids are honest and straightforward, which makes work very interesting and varied. They always appreciate your work and are mostly open for trying new ideas for movements and games.
Q. Have you spent much time in North Van before you started as Facility Leader? A. I actually have never really spent much time in North Vancouver even though it is already my second time in Vancouver, but I'm enjoying discovering the North Van community. There is so much nature just around the corner. I am getting really excited about the winter, just grabbing my snowboard before or after work and heading up to one of the local mountains.
Q. What's the best thing about managing Jump North Van? A. There are more than just one best thing about managing North Van. I get to know a whole new community with its families. Also I get to work with a whole new coach team which I am enjoying. My work standards are always high and I like that I have opportunities to implement these.
Q. How did you end up in Vancouver from Frankfurt? A. My wish was to live in a different country for a year. I was looking for a city where I had a chance of improving my English, being close to the ocean and go snowboarding as much as possible. And here I am!!! Vancouver is made for me.
Q. What would you like Jump families to know about you? A. I feel so lucky having a second chance to live in Vancouver. My goal is for my English to become fluent. So please feel free to help me with this!
We're super excited to start offering Field Trips to Jump for preschools and kids in Kindergarten and Grade One. These 1.5 hour Field Trips make it easier for teachers to meet and assess the new BC curriculum objectives, and for kids to have fun and feel success while developing physical literacy. Here are all the fun details!
Wow! This week we're celebrating the one year anniversary of opening our second location, Jump North Van! Can you believe it's been a whole year since we first opened our doors? We can't! It's been an amazing first year that's whizzed by. We've loved becoming part of this new community, meeting heaps of new families and creating a space alongside of Kids Physio Group. Ever wondered why we wanted to create a shared space with Kids Physio ? Here's why: [video width="700" height="394" mp4="http://jumpgymnastics.ca/site/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/JUMP_KP_COLAB_Final.mp4"][/video]
Jennifer Hood, Jump's Founder, adds in her personal thank you to the entire North Van community for making us feel so welcome and at home in our new home whether by visiting us at community events such as Parkgate Days, or supporting our Jump Play by Donation benefiting the BC Children's Hospital and Crabtree Corner, or joining us at our awesome opening party.
