Challenge 3 follows Gymnastics Canada?s (CANGYM) National Skill Development and Evaluation Program. Our trained/certified coaches will teach Challenge 3 gymnasts a combination of basic skills and advanced target skills.

At the end of each session, Challenge 3 gymnasts will be evaluated in accordance with their Badge level. In Challenge 3, there are four badges:

  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Gold

With these four badges Challenge 3 gymnasts will learn apparatus specific skills – Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor, and Artistic Preparation for Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG).

Each Challenge 3 gymnast will receive a progress report for each badge. Certificate of Participation are given to gymnasts who did not complete a badge. Certificate of Completion are given to the gymnasts when they complete a badge. Gold Routine Certificate is given to the gymnast when they complete their Gold badge.
