Seniors Can Move!

Delta Gymnastics recently held a holiday party at the gym for participants in its Seniors Can Move program, which included a photo in their new program T-shirts. Developed by the Delta Gymnastics Society last year, Seniors Can Move is enabling those 65 years and older to take part in physical activity in a gymnastics setting at the Delta Sport Development Centre in Ladner. Classes are open to all Delta seniors and registration is free.
