Trampoline & Tumbling (T&T)
Trampoline & Tumbling (T&T) conjures images of precise dismounts and stunning twists. T&T gymnasts exemplify aerial speed and power in their dynamic routines. Trampoline became an Olympic sport at Sydney 2000. Canada has won seven Olympic medals in the event to date, highlighted by having a woman on the podium at the first five Games. Rosie MacLennan is Canada’s only Olympic gold medallist in trampoline, taking the title at London 2012 and again at Rio 2016.
Grande Prairie Gymnastics offers a variety of programs for kids 4 and under. Our Kindergym and Active Start programs are exciting, licensed, pre-kindergarten programs for 3–5 year olds. Kindergym combines pre-school activities, stories, and crafts with 45 minutes of gymnastics or cheerleading. Active Start classes develop gross motor skills using circuits on various gymnastics equipment.
Our recreational cheerleading programs for ages 6+ offers an opportunity to “try out” a cheer program without all the financial and time commitments that all-star (competitive) teams require. During the session, students learn all the fundamentals of cheerleading including stunting, beginning tumbling, jumps, motions, dance, formations, and some cheers. This class welcomes a variety of skill levels from beginners and on! Note: Participants in our Force program will also participate in the Cheer Christmas Showcase and the Year-End Showcase.
Available for ages 5+, our recreational gymnastics division offers a series progressive gymnastics programs. Each level incorporates different progressions that must be mastered before moving on to the next, more difficult, level of gymnastics. Athletes are evaluated and recorded at the end of each session in Uplifter.
The program starts with levels that introduce children to fitness and the fundamentals of gymnastics with an emphasis on building not only strength and flexibility but also developing skills, form, technique, and confidence.
The programs incorporate vault, bars, beam, and floor.
