Welcome to the Glenmore Gymnastics Recreation Program!  

We offer Preschool, Kindergym (ages 4-5) and CANGYM (ages 6+) programs for fall, winter, spring, and summer sessions.  Our goal with the Recreation Program is to provide a fun and safe environment for children to learn the basics of gymnastics.  Throughout a 10-12 week session, athletes will work on skills that focus on fitness, coordination, and teamwork that will help them excel in gymnastics or any other sport.

We look forward to having you in our program!

ABOUT CANGYM

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 (Bronze, Silver, and Gold). Each level consists of four badges and each badge contains 20 skills to help athletes move smoothly from one level to the next.

Bronze 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.
 
Silver 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 session to complete each badge in this level as the difficulty is increased and repetition is necessary to master each skill.

Gold 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 session 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. *For those athletes that attend classes twice a week the skill must be done with consistency for both coaches.*
