Challenge 1 follows Gymnastics Canada?s (CANGYM) National Skill Development and Evaluation Program. Our trained/certified coaches will teach Challenge 1 gymnasts the “Fundamental Movement Patterns” of Artistic Gymnastics – Landings, Locomotions, Stationary Positions, Rotations, Springs, and Swings. Some conditioning will be introduced – a strong gymnast will be able to do skills properly and safely.
At the end of each session, Challenge 1 gymnasts will be evaluated in accordance with their Badge level. In Challenge 1, there are four badges:
The skills learned in earning these badges develop the movement patterns that must be mastered to successfully perform all future gymnastics skills.
In Challenge 1, gymnasts will use various non-competitive apparatuses (wall bars, trapezoids, boxes, mats, benches) and competitive gymnastics apparatuses modified for beginner gymnasts.
Each Challenge 1 athlete will receive a progress report for each badge. Certificate of Participation are given to participants who did not complete a badge. Certificate of Completion are given to the participants when they complete a badge.
Classes are split into groups according to age.
