Recreational Program Coordinator
Anna Marshall

  
Welcome to the Glenmore Gymnastics Recreational program!  We offer both Kindergym (ages 4-5) and CANGYM (ages 6+) programs for fall, winter, and spring sessions.  Our goal with the recreational program is to provide a safe, fun environment for kids to learn the basics of gymnastics.  This will provide them with the skills required to progress to the competitive program or excel in the recreational program and develop a lifelong base of fitness and coordination that is transferrable to any sport.

We look forward to having you in our program!

KinderGym classes are for ages 4-5. These classes focuses on the basics of gymnastics.  The athletes will learn the locomotions, shapes, and coordination needed for gymnastics as well as balance, spacial awareness, and body awareness for everyday living. 

There are 5 levels within the Kindergym program.  Children will work on their specific levels within the same class and are individually challenged. Levels are not pass/fail - all children will be presented with a certificate and awarded a ribbon at the end of each session.




CANGYM

The CANGYM program includes four levels (Beginner, IntermediateAdvanced, and Advanced+) of skill progressions based on Gymnastics Canada’s FUN, FITNESS, and FUNDAMENTALS Educational Philosophy, which helps to create a friendly and stimulating environment for all participants.
 
Each level consists of a specific number of badges for a total of 12 different coloured badges that participants receive upon successful completion of that badge. Within the Beginner level, there is a focus on mastering fundamental movement patterns. Within the Intermediate level, the focus is on mastering fundamental skills on men’s and women’s artistic apparatus, while the Advanced  and Advanced+ level focuses on mastering the identified target skills and completing minor routines.
