Cangym Badges 1-4

A 1-1.5 hour (depending on level) long fun and energetic program incorporating most of the standard gymnastics events (vault, bars, beam, floor)

The program is designed as a progressive gymnastics program. 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 throughout the session in Uplifter.

When re-registering, check the participants achievements at week 8 of the session to know what level to register your participant in.

For each class, parents can expect a 15-minute warm-up & stretch and then groups will separate into levels. Each group will use different pieces of equipment as per the coach’s daily lesson plan.

Please keep in mind that many of the more difficult levels can take several sessions to complete.

Athletes will learn and develop at their own individual pace. No previous experience is required to join these groups, we have a variety of skills levels that participate.

Inclusive Gymnastics

Child is in a class of approx. 6-8 children with other groups around. They will follow the routine, attempting the same skills as the rest of the group. Modifications will be made for their success. Interaction with peers is encouraged. It is required that for the first 3 classes, someone over the age of 16 (parent/guardian/aide) accompany the athlete to ensure their success in learning.

If you would like a one on one within the group there will be an extra charge. Athletes are welcome to provide their own aid if an extra coach is not required. If you are unsure if your child will need a one on one coach, please book an assessment with our program supervisor.
