Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG)

Junior Olympic Pre-Competitive Program

After developing the basic skills in the recreational gymnastics program, athletes are selected by the coaching staff and invited to train in a more structured, skill-focused program. Athletes are selected based on talent and ability, however it is not necessary that your daughter be able to perform any specific skills. Several physical attributes are assessed such as strength, flexibility, body control, body awareness, speed, power and agility. Other areas such as the ability to focus, willingness to learn, and general positive attitude are also taken into consideration. It is important to select gymnasts for this program that will feel successful and therefore build confidence, self esteem and pride in their accomplishments.

 

 The Junior Olympic program develops good basic gymnastics skills and allows for a smoother transition between compulsory levels, building a strong foundation of good body positions, strength and flexibility. Athletes in the JO Program are generally selected from our Recreational Can-Gym program.
 
Pre-Competitive athletes are introduced to competition using the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model, where all participants receive ribbons for each event and a medal (gold, silver, bronze) based on their all-around score.
JO Level 1 is the entry level to pre-competitive gymnastics and is a means to transition athletes from our recreational program into our competitive program. JO Level 1 and JO Level 2 are considered pre-competitive levels at our club, as well as in the province.
JO Level 1’s train once a week for 2.5 hours and they will attend two competitions during the season.  JO Level 2’s train twice a week for 2.5 hours and will attend three competitions during the season.
