Best for athletes who are willing to dedicate most of their free time to gymnastics, and are interested in competing at the provincial or national level.
The competitive program requires the most time and training commitment. Depending on level, athletes could be training up to 15 hours per week. Gymnasts will be trained in advanced body skills, flexibility, conditioning, ballet, and apparatus mastery skills all depending on level. Athletes may be required to attend extra training camps outside of their weekly commitments, as well as travel within the province and around the country (depending on level). Gymnasts will also be responsible for maintaining their health – both body and mind – as this program requires a high level of strength and focus. This program is focused on individual routines; however, a group option may be available based on numbers and interest. Athletes in the competitive program may also be asked to perform at various opportunities in their own communities and around the province.
Competitive training will be available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 5-9PM. Schedules will vary depending on number of hours athletes are training per week. For provincial Level C athletes and National athletes, an additional night will be available from 6-9PM on Wednesdays.
Athletes interested in this program and are new to the club or Head Coach are required to be assessed to ensure they are prepared for the level of intensity and commitment the competitive level requires. They will receive a recommendation of the most suitable level and hours for them to train each week.
