Training This week OGC Acrobatic Gymnastics

Please note that the Interclub Acro Groups 1 & 2 DO NOT have any training this week.

Provincial Acro group has a training from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Thursday, December 27th and Friday, December 28th.

The Elite Acro group has training from 5:00 to 8:00pm on Thursday, December 27th and Friday, December 28th.  Please note that the viewing area will be closed after 5:00pm.  All athletes should arrive a bit early to ensure they are able to get into the gym. If you arrive late go around to the outside door (in the corner by the trampolines near the end of the tumbling strip run up) and bang loudly on the door until someone lets you in.  If you need to leave early let us know in advance.

Xander Taylor, Circus Artist

 Joining the Elite Acro Group for the Thursday training will be one of the current National Circus School students from Montreal.  Alexander Taylor is currently studying at the National Circus school across the street from the Cirque du Soleil headquarters in Montreal.  Alex used to be coached by Don at the KW Diving Club in 2005/2006.  He now trains acrobatics, aerial apparatus and dance.  We are looking forward to having Alex join us.

OGC Athletes on Cirque du Soleil Facebook page

The OGC athletes from the tumbling and acro programs joined with athletes from Gymnastics Mississauga and Manjak Gymnastics to attend a pre-screening of the NEW Cirque du Soleil movie "Worlds Away".  

We submitted our big group photo to Cirque du Soleil and it has appeared on the Cirque du Soleil Casting Facebook page.  See the following link:

Can you spot Don?  He got fully decked out for the movie in Cirque du Soleil make-up done by the famous face painter, Karen Dance.

Snow Day Cancellations

Third Line traffic can be bad.

In the event that there is a snow storm we will post class cancellations here on the blog by 2:00pm at the latest. We will also often e-mail you directly. When you see the post or receive the e-mail please send an e-mail to Don or Niki or the club's info e-mail to let us know that you have received the notice. We will do follow up phone calls to those that we do not hear back from at 3:00pm but would prefer to only call those families who did not catch the e-mail or the post.

Snow days will not be made up at a later time.

Tumblers & Tiaras Pics

Here are some of the best photos from the Tumblers & Tiaras Interclub Invitational for Acro and Tumbling.  All photos are posted on Don's Facebook page.

My apologies for taking so long to get these posted.
