No Training @ OGC Sunday Nov 28

Just a reminder for those of you staying behind that there are no Acrobatic Gymnastics Classes this Sunday, November 28th as there is an Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp in Windsor all weekend. We will be there.

Enjoy your Sunday off. Maybe do some stretching.

Bus to Windsor

We still have space on the bus to Windsor next week (November 26th to 28th). The bus departs Friday around noon and will return to the OGC by 4:00pm on Sunday. On Saturday the bus will be taking parents across to Detroit to do some Christmas Shopping.

Anyone is welcome. Aunts, neighbours, grandparents, friends, older siblings. We have the space and need to fill it.

If you're interested contact Don.

Training Suits

The OGC Acrobatic Gymnastics Program is giving you the option to buy a Team Training suit.

Saucy's World Gym suit manufacturers will be coming on Sunday, November 21st from 6:00 to 6:45pm to measure Acro athletes for suits.

The suit is simple and looks something like this. It can be worn with regular black nylon shorts for the girls comfort.

The boys will have the black singlets and shorts with the OGC twisty guy logo embroidered on the shorts.

Again purchasing the suit is optional this year but will be mandatory for the competitive team next year. We will keep the suit the same for two years.

Note that prior to competitions athletes will have to buy a competitive suit for their routines.

Windsor Training Camp INFO

If this was not e-mailed to you directly then you are not on Don's e-mail list. Send him an e-mail at so that he can add you to the list.

Parents Please note that you are welcome and encouraged to travel with your son/daugther to this Training Camp on the bus. You are part of the team and I would prefer that parents act as chaperone/manager for their own child during the weekend but there will be a few I understand who cannot get out of other family commitments that weekend.

Parents if you want to bring siblings of your acro athletes or someone else to fill the seats and do some shopping you are welcome to do so as I'm sure we will have space.

1st Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp

Alright, so we finally have the Call to Camp for the 1st Ontario Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp. I will hand out a more complete document this week once we have a hotel group booking in place and potentially a team coach bus to take us down and bring us back that weekend. Parents are welcome to come and the bus we are looking into will also take you across the border to do some shopping in Detroit.

The Training Camp will be in Windsor Vistas Gymnastics Club.

If you are planning on attending which everyone should be then you can register with Agnes in the office later this week.

More info to follow.
