Flip City has been teaching gymnastics to kids in the Langley area since 1998 when it was opened by Rusty and Sue Pierce.

In 2007, Flip City Gymnastics Club was created, so that club athletes could receive financial support in attaining their competitive goals, while also helping to promote community involvement in the sport of gymnastics.

Flip City club moved to Walnut Grove in 2011 where it continues to provide competitive and non-competitive instruction in gymnastics, trampoline, hybrid movement and cheerleading.

It operates as a non-profit organization.
