Schedule Changes

There are few changes to the Acro schedule as March comes to a close:

Sunday, March 24th Interclub Acro group 1 will train from 3:30 to 5:30pm rather than 3:00 to 5:00pm.  Daniela will be away at a tumbling competition in Quebec.  David will be coaching for her but he coaches recreational classes until 3:30pm.  
Don will be away at the tumbling competition as well so David, Jane and Katie will take care of the Elite Group with special emphasis on routines.

Friday, March 29th is Good Friday and the Oakville Gymnastics Club is closed so ALL classes are cancelled on that holiday.

Easter Sunday, March 31st Inter Club Groups 1 & 2 will train together between 3:30 and 5:30pm.  Daniela is away and Jane is Calgary.  David will take both groups together with an assistant coach.  Please let your coach know if you will not be able to make the Easter Sunday class. 
Both the Provincial and Elite Acro groups do not have training as most athletes are gone to Calgary for the Alberta Acro competition.  If your athlete is not attending the Calgary meet they are welcome to join the Interclub Acro training time from 3:30 to 5:30pm.

Monday, April 1st is Easter Monday and the Oakville Gymnastics Club is closed do ALL classes are cancelled on that day.

GO Acro Beginner Level Training Camp

Gymnastics Ontario hosted a Beginner Level Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp at the Oakville Gymnastics Club on March 9th.  This Training Camp was also a coaching course for some young acro coaches.  Though almost fully attended by OGC members the camp was a big success with everyone having a fun day learning the ins and outs, ups and downs of introductory acro.

Who is spotting who?
