Recreational

Best for athletes who are looking to try out the sport, with no past experience in gymnastics or performance arts.

The recreational program is designed to provide fundamental skills in a fun and controlled environment. Gymnasts in this program work on developing body movement, fitness, and technical gymnastics skills, while also learning how to work together in a team.

Athletes in this program will also learn group routines to peform at our Winter Showcase in December (and Spring Showcase if registering for the entire eight month session).

Next Generation: Group & Individual

Best for athletes who are interested in the pre-competitive or competitive program but are not ready to train for a complete season or attend competitions.

The Next Generation program is for athletes interested in joining the pre-competitive or competitive program but are either too young to compete, found out about the sport late in the season, or are unable to commit to attending competitions. Athletes will learn one or two routines based on their skill level, and will have the option of training as a group (depending on numbers and ages) or an individual. This is a great opportunity for any athletes who may wish to train at a higher level than recreational, but are not ready to make the full leap to a season of pre-competitive or competitive training. It will also help athletes gain experience and build confidence before entering the competitive world.

Athletes in this program will learn solo and group routines to perform at our Winter Showcase in December (and Spring Showcase if registering for the entire eight month session).

This program requires athletes to work independently at times during training. Please contact us to find out if this program is right for your gymnast.

Pre-competitive Program

Best for athletes who are interested in competitive but are not quite ready, or are not able to make the time commitment for the full competitive program.

The pre-competitive program follows the provincial Rhythm Cat regulations and is used as a stepping stone for the provincial competitive level. Gymnasts in this program have moved beyond the recreational/performance level but are not quite ready for the full provincial competitive program. Athletes will be expected to train outside of class hours, as well as attend various extra training and learning opportunities throughout the season when available. This program is focused on individual routines; however, a group option may be available based on numbers. Athletes in the pre-competitive program may also be asked to perform at various opportunities in their own communities and around the province.

AGES: 7+

PREREQUISITE: 

One year of recreational or Next Gen classes OR special approval/invitation. Please contact us with any questions.

FALL SCHEDULE: 

Mondays from 6-9PM

COMMITMENT: 

Full eight month session from Sept 9th-April 27th, as well as competitions throughout the season.

 

Competitive Program

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.

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.
