General Information

toddlers-135The CanGym Badge Program is a nationally recognized curriculum for recreational gymnastics in Canada. It is a 14-level skill-based program. At each level, there are skills that must be achieved to move onto the next level. This program is for children ages six (6) and up. This program is based on ability and NOT on age. Although we cannot guarantee it, we always attempt at creating classes for children of similar ages.

There are approximately thirty (30) skills per badge. At the end of each session, each child receives a Report Card, clearly indicating which skills have been learning/attempted (L) and mastered (√). In order to pass a particular badge, a child must master all of the shaded elements on the Report Card.

Should your child wish to collect the actual badges, please see the Main Office for further information (780-440-0014).

These key program skills have been selected to ensure a clear progression from one badge to the next, ultimately leading to the key skills that are contained in the Gold Badge.

Please take note that progress through the various levels depends on each child’s abilities and efforts and that, as such, it may take more than one session of classes for a child to pass a particular level.
