Recreational Programs

 

Our Recreational (non-competitive) classes are great for building strength, coordination, agility and balance! There are three 12-week recreational sessions during the school year and an 8-week session over the summer. 

Trampoline

Trampoline classes use lesson plans developed by the Canadian Olympic Trampoline Coach, Dave Ross.  Normal progression through the class structure is Recreational Trampoline, Advanced Trampoline, Competitive Trampoline.

Gymnastics

The recreational gymnastics classes follow the CANGYM badge system, as published by Gymnastics Canada.  Recreational structure starts with Kindergym or Rollers, then Swingers, Springers and Flippers.  Participants may be asked to change to the Competitive stream if they are showing gymnastics excellence.

Acrobatics

In Canada, Acrobatics (called Adiago in circus circles) is being developed through Gymnastics Canada.  Ontario plans to introduce competition to the community in 2011, which will be the first year that Ontario and Canada have Acrobatics as a competitive gymnastics discipline. SSF Head Coach John Craig was lucky enough to be selected to travel to Cirque du Soleil headquarters in Montreal during the summer of 2010 to attend the first FIG (Federation International du Gymnastique) Level 1 Acrobatics course held in North America, in order to learn the techniques and skills of Acrobatics.  Make sure to check out this hot new gymnastics discipline, great for developing strength and balance!
