COMPETITIVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gymnasts in the competitive program are trained in flexibility, endurance, co-ordination, strength and apparatus techniques in preparation for competition. Competitive gymnasts are expected to register for the entire training season from September to June as well as the summer training camp in August. In addition to the time commitment, competitive gymnasts are responsible for additional expenses such as club uniform, costumes, apparatus, competition registration fees, travel and accommodations costs. 

INTERCLUB

Our inter-club stream is for gymnasts a who are just entering the competitive program or for gymnasts who want less time commitment. They train 7 hours a week with one hour of Ballet training included. Interclub gymnasts can compete as Individual, RG Groups and AGG. Inter-club gymnasts compete in in-house and local invitational competitions.

PROVINCIAL

Our provincial stream is for gymnasts with above average strength, flexibility and coordination. Gymnasts in the provincial stream train 12 hours per week with Ballet training included. Provincial gymnasts can compete in 3 categories: Individual, RG Groups and AGG. Provincial gymnasts compete at two provincial qualifiers to earn a spot at Ontario Provincial Championships. They also may compete at Eastern Regional Championships (if level permits) as well as in-house meets and local invitational competitions.

Aesthetic Group Gymnastics (AGG)

We offer AGG in both Inter-club and Provincial streams based off of group ability.

Aesthetic Group Gymnastics “AGG”  is different than rhythmic gymnastics through its big and continuous body movement and larger teams. Apparatus is not used in AGG competitions. A competitive group consists of 6 to 10 gymnasts. Teamwork and unity are essential. Choreography using expressive interpretation of music through movements creates a story. An AGG routine consists of versatile and varied body movements, such as body waves and swings, balances and pivots, jumps and leaps, dance steps, and lifts. AGG is art, expression and feelings combined into a high level competitive sport. The sport requires physical qualities such as flexibility, balance, speed, strength, coordination and sense of rhythm where movements of the body are emphasized in the flow, expressive and aesthetic appeal.

*Any gymnasts who are interested in our competitive programs must be evaluated and assessed by the Head Coach for placements.
