All Kids Shine at Starr Gymnastics (Psst! This post includes an amazing giveaway!)


Our family loves Ottawa’s Starr Gymnastics. Both Stella and Max have taken classes there and I’ll tell you why: because it’s fun and it’s positive.

For Stella, she appreciated the friendly environment and that she could wear shorts and a t-shirt, since a bodysuit is not required. For Max, we initially enrolled him to help strengthen his core and increase his gross motor coordination, but we stayed on because he was really enjoying the music and the trampoline. (This home video makes me so000 nostalgic for his baby pudge!)

We never harboured dreams of a competitive gymnast in our midst, but the benefits of gymnastics are tremendous and well documented. Starr welcomes kids of all ages and abilities to join in, and they genuinely do so.

Starr is also a bit of a community hub because they offer a free baby playgroup (a mental life-saver for the new mom who needs to get out of the house!), pre-school drop-in playtime, and birthday party sessions.

This year, Max is going to be lucky enough to celebrate his 7th birthday at Starr and your child can too with this awesome giveaway!

    I would love to host a co-party for my girls because I was a bad Mommy this year and did not have parties for the kids! For shame.

  2. Just want to say YAY to the pudge! xox

    My son went to Starr for a summer camp and adored it! It would be so cool to do a super hero themed Starr Gymnastics birthday for him.

  5. Emily Smith says:

    We’ve brought our son to Starr gym a few times and he’s loved it. I would love to have his 5th birthday party there! I know he would have a blast!

  6. We have hosted a number of parties at Starr and the kids love it every time! They think the nicknames of the instructors are awesome, too!

  7. My kids would love to have a Starr Gymnastics party so they could have a party “outside of the house”… like the ones I normally have. :)

  8. Oh man, the idea of letting the kids run around and get tired out while I sit back sounds heavenly! Thanks for the chance :)

  9. My boys love Starr Gymnastics :) It would be so much fun to do something different from the usual birthday celebrations!

  12. Chantal Coutu says:

    A birthday party at Starr Gymnastics would be awesome for my daughter! She just finished gymnastics classes through the City of Ottawa to see if she’s like it… and she LOVED it! We are now wanting to put her in classes at Starr to move up to more detailed instruction. My son has attended a birthday party there and had SO much fun! I know my daughter would love it. :) Thank you!

  13. Natalie says:

    This would be an awesome way to celebrate my kids (triplets!) birthday this summer! They’ve been to one party there last year and have raved and raved about it. I think this would put this mom in their good books, at least for a little while 😉

  14. My daughter is turning 7 this summer and she loved gymnastics. She is a kid with energy to burn and she loves going to Star. We live down the road from one of their locations and we have been regular visitors over the years. She has already asked about going there for her birthday.

  15. HollyStar says:

    My youngest son, Henry, would LOVE to have his party at Starr. We’ve been going there with him for a few years now and he loves the space. He loves the trampolines and swinging on the Tarzan rope. He has never had his own birthday party because he always shares with his older brother whose birthday is also in September.

  16. I love Starr. Both my boys have taken classes there on and off for three years and they really enjoy it. The instructors are great which is a big bonus. I never thought of hosting their birthday there, but it’s a great idea. They would have a blast!

  17. Jessica says:

    Our girl loves Starr, and so do her friends and cousins. They’d all have a blast if her July bday part was at Starr!

  18. My kids are really active and I don’t have a big house where their friends can safely play. I love that this is such a different kind of birthday party.
