September Training by Groups

As the schedules that I post are sometimes a little cryptic and a bit minuscule I have decided to post the training schedule in a slightly different format.  I will post the regular schedule as well.

Acrobatic Gymnastics Interclub Group 1
Coach: Daniela
Sundays: 3:00 to 5:00pm
Mondays: 6:30 to 8:30pm
Wednesdays: 4:00 to 6:00pm

Acrobatic Gymnastics Interclub Group 2:
Coach: Jane
Sundays: 4:15 to 6:15pm 
Tuesdays: 5:00 to 7:00pm
Fridays: 4;30 to 6:30pm

Acrobatic Gymnastics Provincial Group
Coach: Jane
Sundays: 6:30 to 9:00pm
Tuesdays: 7:00 to 9:30pm
Thursdays: 7:00 to 9:00pm
Fridays: 6:30 to 8:30pm

Acrobatic Gymnastics Elite Group
Coach: Don & Jane
Sundays: 6:30 to 9:30pm
Mondays: 3:00 to 6:00pm
Tuesdays: 3:00 to 6:00pm
Thursdays: 6:30 to 9:30pm

Extra Tumbling Class for non tumblers: 
Coaches: Sarah/Chantel
Sundays: 5:30 to 6:30pm
(*Note: This group will be by invitation only.  It is highly suggested for those athletes in the Provincial and Elite Groups who do not come from a gymnastics or tumbling background to take this class to increase their basic individual elements).

Extra Tops Class for Provincial and Elite Group Tops:
Coach: Jane
Wednesdays: 6:15 to 8:15pm
(*Note: This group will be by invitation only.  It is highly suggested for those tops in the Provincial and Elite Groups to attend this class to do extra work on your pegs and specific physical preparation as they have a lot of work to do to get their balance positions to a higher level of proficiency).

*Note:  These "Extra" classes will be added to your competitive fees for the remaining 10 months of training.  eg. If you were in the 12 hour group adding 1 hour of extra tumbling puts you into the 13-16 pay bracket so your monthly fee will increase.  eg. If you were in the 9 hour group 1 additional tumbling hour will put you into the 10 - 12 hour pay bracket.  The "Additional" dance training on Sunday will not increase your fees as it is included in your regular Sunday night training time and will not be considered "Extra". 

Additional Dance Training:
All Provincial and Elite Group athletes will be spending some time working with Chantel and Katie on dance basics, artistry and choreography as part of the first hour of their Sunday evening Acro class.  This will allow each pair/group more time to develop their artistry skills and allow Don and Jane to spend more one-on-one time with each pair/group on Sunday evening.   

September Training

The Road to Fall training
I hope everyone has been enjoying their weeks off and are eager to get back to training.  

Here are some bits of information that you will need to know:

Gym Closed for Renovations:  
The week of Tuesday, September 4th to Friday, September 7th the gym will be closed as we take up all of the equipment to in order to do renovations on the lights. 

Program Start Date:  
The Acrobatic Gymnastics fall program will start on Sunday, September 9th.

Parent Meeting:
We will have an Acrobatic Gymnastics Program Parent Meeting on Wednesday, September 5th from 5:30 to 6:30pm.  This meeting is for the families of acrobatic gymnastics athletes in the Interclub Groups 1 & 2 as well as the Provincial and Elite groups.

The Oakville Gymnastics Club will host its Annual General Meeting on Sunday, September 30th.  All parents who attend will receive 3 volunteer hours towards their volunteer commitments.  You should attend.  These are easy volunteer hours.  We are still looking for nominations to the OGC Board of Directors if you are interested.

OGC Acrobatics August Schedule

Here is the August Schedule for Acrobatic Gymnastics at the OGC.

Points to Note:

Monday, August 6th is a Stat Holiday so there will be NO TRAINING on that day as the rec centre will be closed.

Don will be away from August 8th to 15th so there will be an alternative schedule for his group.

Acro Elite Group (Don's Group):
Wednesday, August 8th No Training
Thursday, August 9th 5:30 to 8:30pm with Jane and Emma
Friday, August 10th 12:00 to 3:00pm (rather than 2:00pm) with Jane
Monday, August 13th 5:30 to 8:30pm with Jane and Emma
Tuesday, August 14th 2:00 to 5:00pm with Jane (starting an hour earlier so that Jane can get to her other classes that she coaches)
Wednesday, August 15th No training
Thursday, August 16th 3:00 to 6:00pm rather than 4:00 to 6:00pm with Don
Friday, August 17th 12:00 to 3:00pm rather than 2:00pm finish with Don

My apologies for the changes.

The last two weeks of August the Acrobatic Gymnastics (and Tumbling program) have off.

September start back will be posted soon.
