Any time of the year is a great time to flip out, and Calgary Gymnastics Centre has classes for spring registration opening soon! We all know that kids love to move; they climb, swing, jump, and balance their way through life anyway, so channel that energy into gymnastics skills! Gymnastics is a terrific sport for promoting basic physical literacy. The strength, coordination, flexibility, and body awareness that is central to gymnastics is a must for many other sports, as well. Calgary Gymnastics Centre is the largest gymnastics facility in Calgary, with two locations to choose from, one in Canada Olympic Park and one on Country Hills Blvd. They make it fun and convenient for kids to try out a wonderful all-around sport!
From babies to adults, Calgary Gymnastics Centre offers classes for any age and any level at both their North and West locations. No matter their ability, kids can enjoy the facilities and have fun challenging their bodies. With three competitive disciplines, as well as adult, recreational and preschool programs, you’ll find something to suit your family. Do you want to get out and move with your baby? Sign up for a class. Is your child a recreational athlete looking for a little fun and fitness? There’s a class for you. Are you raising an international athlete with a gold medal in their dreams? There’s a class for you, too! The Calgary Gymnastics Centre has it all!
Do you have a busy baby? From Babynastics to Gym-A-Tot, little ones from 6 months to 3.5 years can enjoy gymnastics with a parent. Crawlers and walkers love exploring the age-appropriate obstacles during a parented class and toddlers and young preschoolers can also enjoy parented classes and achieve accomplishments of age-appropriate skills like balance, forward rolls, mini-handstands, and more. With the use of balls, ribbons, hoops, and beanbags, your child will begin to develop their rhythm, fine motor skills, and listening skills. If you have a 3 or 4-year-old who’s ready to roll (literally!), enrol them in an action-packed, unparented class with exciting, theme-oriented circuits.
If your child is age 4 to 6.5 years, the KinderGym programs offer a variety of activities designed to develop a love for the varied events in gymnastics, with KinderGym, KinderCanGym, and KinderNinjas. Your child can work on all gymnastics events including vault, bars, beam, floor, and trampoline while developing social skills, self-esteem, commitment, and a sense of achievement in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. Cardiovascular and muscular endurance, flexibility, and strength are incorporated.
Once a child is 6 (ages 6 – 17), they can join the CanGym program, allowing them to work at their own level, mastering skills and earning badges from the progressional CanGym program set out by Gymnastics Canada. As they progress through the badges, boys and girls will begin training in separate groups, helping them progress to new heights!
Whether they’ve done gymnastics before or just want to try something new, older kids (ages 12 – 17), will find a place to have fun and challenge themselves in the Teen Gymnastics Class. No experience is necessary for this fun class!
Of course, we haven’t even mentioned the CanJump program for trampoline lovers, Acro Skills for Dance, Skills and Drills, or the Drop and Gym program! Calgary Gymnastics Centre has something for every child and schedule. Once you see how much fun it is, maybe you’ll want to register for the Adult Gymnastics, suitable for everyone. (Kids don’t get all the fun!)
The spring session at Calgary Gymnastics Centre begins soon, so be sure to register early. Priority Registration begins on February 26, 2020, and Open Registration begins on March 11, 2020.
