1st Acro Cup Schedule

Hi Everyone,

Here is the schedule for the 1st Ontario Cup for Acrobatic Gymnastics.

My apologies for the lateness that you are receiving this schedule.  The problem with schedules is that it takes a bit to create them as we are often waiting on late registrations and dealing with corrections, changes and with-drawls.

Once we have the entire registration then we can create a definitive schedule.  Please note that this is common to receive a competition schedule the week before the competition or the week of, in this case.

Simply try to plan to be there for the entire day and once you receive the final schedule then you can make alternative arrangements.  I also understand that with it being the weekend before Christmas holiday many of you will have family events planned for this weekend.  Please feel free to bring them along for the competition as it will be quite a show.

I was very keen to have Oakville Gymnastics host this inaugural event and the only weekend where we would not have to have rescheduled several hundred recreational athletes was this Sunday at the end of the recreational session.  

Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and support as we strive to develop this new gymnastics discipline and to deliver the best opportunities for our Oakville athletes to achieve success.

Please be at least an hour early for your event as the competition may run ahead of schedule (fingers crossed).

Be sure to have your daughter's hair up in a tight bun.  No nail polish.  No earrings  (or body piercings, etc.)

Good luck and don't forget about the Saturday night training for all OGC acrobats competing this weekend between 5:00 and 7:00pm at the OGC.

All athletes should be sure to let their coaches know when they will be away over the holiday break if they will be missing training.  Note the alternative training times.  The week between Christmas and New Years the viewing area may be closed so athletes will be dropped off and returned to the sliding glass doors at the front of the club.
