Objectives of the Developmental & Competitive Programs
* One of the goals of Champions Gymnastics is to identify and develop future Canadian National Team Members for World Championships and Olympic Games.
As such, Champions Gymnastics aims at detecting young talented girls who demonstrate above-average pre-dispositions, ability and drive to pursue excellence in competitive women’s gymnastics.
No previous experience is required. For girls (aged between six (6) and nine (9) years old) who demonstrate a love for movement/dance/acrobatics, who seem to be afraid of nothing, who have boundless energy and tend to be good in school. The Developmental & Competitive programs are NOT for children who are shy, reserved, apprehensive, tall for their age or not athletically inclined. If selected, the child’s family must be prepared for a long-term commitment to the sport of gymnastics and must be willing to understand the requirements of an elite gymnastics program (varying schedules, eventual travel to competitions, associated costs).
The cost is $20.00/child (includes G.S.T.) for members and $30.00/child (includes G.S.T.) for non-members. You can register your child by phone or in person at Champions Gymnastics. There are no refunds. Payment is accepted over the phone with Visa or MasterCard or in person with credit card, debit, or cash. Each child must wear a long-sleeve or short-sleeve gymnastics bodysuit and have her hair neatly tied back.
Each evaluation lasts approximately ten (10) to fifteen (15) minutes in the gym. Parents may be allowed in the gym during testing at the discretion of the evaluator. The gymnast is tested on various physical abilities and basic skills. A verbal report is then made available to the parents. If selected, the child’s parents are called to a meeting and the various expectations/requirements for entry into the Developmental/Competitive Programs are explained in detail. Each family can then determine if they wish to sign up or not. In the case where the family decides to not join in, the Coach will offer alternative program options to the child.
The Champions Gymnastics Developmental Program first requires a minimum commitment of 6 hrs/wk (2 X 3 hours).
As elite female gymnasts progress in their development, the number of training hours always increases. As such, a 10 year old Elite gymnast can train up to 20 hrs/wk (split training, i.e. twice per day) and accomplished high level gymnasts (12-17 years old) can train up to 30 hrs/wk (individual scheduling and split training schedule). Training fee information, schedule and Champions Gymnastics Parents Association information are given at the meeting scheduled for the selected girls.
