Ages 6 and up

Cangym Program

Glenmore Gymnastics Club proudly follows the CANGYM program. CANGYM is Gymnastic Canada’s National Skill Development and Evaluation Program for Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. CANGYM was developed and tested by coaches working with beginner to advanced recreational gymnasts and with entry-level competitive gymnasts. The program is to be used as a progress monitoring tool and a motivational tool. CANGYM is designed for participants of different abilities, aged 6 and older. The program is based on Gymnastics Canada’s three philosophical pillars for all recreational programs: FUN, FITNESS and FUNDAMENTALS. By incorporating these three components into each lesson, we create a friendly, stimulating and healthy environment for all our gymnasts.

How does CANGYM work?

CANGYM is divided into three levels (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced). Each level consists of four badges and each badge contains 20 skills to help athletes move smoothly from one level to the next.

Beginner Level

This level consists of four badges: Burgundy, Red, Tan and Bronze. These badges focus on developing the fundamental movement patterns of artistic gymnastics. These movement patterns must be mastered to successfully perform all future gymnastics skills.

Intermediate Level

The next four badges: Purple, Blue, Turquoise, Silver focus on combining fundamental movement patterns to learn basic gymnastics skills on specific apparatus. These skills must be well-mastered in order to safely attempt more difficult skills later-on. Most gymnasts at this level will want to participate in more than one class per week to progress quickly and gain the strength and flexibility needed to master their skills. It is common to take more than one month of classes to complete each badge in this level as the difficulty is increased and repetition is necessary to master each skill.

Advanced Level

The last four badges: Orange, Yellow, Green, Gold are centered on learning more advanced level skills that have been designated “target” skills for the CANGYM program. These are taught by combining fundamental movement patterns and basic skills together. These skills are very challenging and will take a lot of hard work and dedication. Practice is the key to success in this level and athletes are strongly encouraged to participate in two classes per week.

CANGYM Report Cards

All participants receive a progress report at the end of each level to show what they’ve learned and what they still need to practice.

Attempted - The athlete can do the skill on his or her own about 3 times out of 10 attempts, with fairly good form.

Learning - The athlete can complete the skill with proper technique 4-6 times out of 10 tries. The skill must be performed with reasonable form (straight legs, pointed toes, etc.)

Mastered - The athlete can complete the skill with proper technique a minimum of 7 times out of 10. The skill must be performed with good form.
