Open Auditions for Acrobats

 Please note that in my role as both the Director of the Oakville Gymnastics Club's Acrobatic Gymnastics program and as the Chair of the Gymnastics Ontario Acrobatic Gymnastics Technical Committee it is one of my goals to ensure that Ontario has the strongest athletes vying for spots on the Canadian Acrobatic Gymnastics Team.  When athletes from OGC or elsewhere are in need of the best partnership in order to achieve this goal I will try to help where I can.  Presently the Women's Trio bases from Gymnastics Mississauga (as well as our Mixed Pair base) are in need of an older and skilled top in order to prepare for selection to the 2016 Canadian Team that will go to World Championships.  By running an Open Audition we are permitting anyone who wishes to try for a spot on top of either of these base units.  

Presently and In the future it will be very important for our country to remember that we are competing against the rest of the world and not against other local clubs.  We need to work together as an acro community to ensure that Canada puts its best Acrobats forward and if this means sharing our athletes in order to create the best partnerships then this is something we need to be willing to do.  

The trio bases from Mississauga have competed in two World Age Group Championships and should be able to strive for another World Championships.  

Athletes from any club who are current acrobatic gymnastics tops are welcome to audition as well.  Please register with me, Don Holmes if you wish to be part of this audition.
