Big Time Promotion

OGC Acrobatics Team!!!

Go check out your pics on the USA Gymnastics website. Just follow this link.


What a great promotion for our small acrobatics program to be on one of the leading gymnastics websites in the world.

GO Congress ACRO!!!

The year's Gymnastics Ontario Coaching Congress was only the second time that an Acrobatic Gymnastics event has taken place at a provincial level in Ontario. The OGC Acrobatics Team were the overwhelming contributors and participants in this event. Not only did we supply interested young coaches we also provided the demonstration athletes.

Well done OGC Acrobatics team. You looked great. I will post some pictures here.

I hope you all felt like you got something out of it and will be able to transfer all you learned at this congress to what you are working on in the gym.

Thank you to Tom Housley and Selena Peco who came from the USA Gymnastics Acrobatics program to teach us all about the beginner levels of Acrobatics. Much appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you enjoyed the weekend, the turkey, and the break.

Next weekend we will be back to regular training and should remain that way through until the end of this fall session.

I will be gone for a few weekends for World Age Group Championships for tumbling and the club is hosting a gymnastics competition on the 13th of December. I will create a schedule and post it here on the blog. On the weekends that I am away we will still have classes and there will be a supply coach.
