We will do this at the beginning of each session. If you want to make sure we know about an athletes personal goals please speak with the supervisor so that we can make sure the coach is aware in the first couple of weeks of class.
5. My child seems to be in a group of younger kids than they are, why is that? How are the groups created?
Groups are created based on age and level. This is also dependent on the athletes that register for the specific time slot. It is normal to have a 1-3-year age and level gap within a group. Coaches are equipped to provide challenging and modified skills for all to ensure athletes find success. In the sport of gymnastics, it is important to always review basics, and break skills down into drills which benefits all athletes.
During the weekdays older athletes typically register for the later time slots, and younger athletes at the earlier time slots.

Of course, depending on their special needs there are a variety of options available. We ask that you provide us with information on your special need in order to help us best coach your child. The more information we have about how to work with your child the easier the transition will be. We will do our best to support the child in the program if we can. In some cases, the parent may need to supply a support worker to assist in the classes.

19. My child is 9 years old, should I register them in the Girls Recreational 6-12 year old or 9-14 years class? What is the difference?
Athletes who have more experience in gymnastics are recommended to register in the 9-14 year old class. The later class traditionally has athletes who are older in age and have done gymnastics for at least a year. There is no difference in the programs, both follow the CanGym level system.
Kindergym is for 3 to 5 year olds who are relatively new to gymnastics or starting gymnastics in the gym on their own for the first time. Advanced kindergym is 30 minutes longer than the kindergym class, is for older athletes 4 or 5 years old and should have some experience with gymnastics. Ideally you are in Cangym Level 3 when you begin Advanced Kindergym.
