National Acro Cup Schedule Version 2 UPDATED

Here is the updated Version  2.0 of the schedule for the 2017 National Acro Cup and Aerobics Invitational.

There are only really small changes but do follow this version of the schedule.


OGC Acrobatic Gymnastics Team for 2017/2018

Please note that no groups or lists of athletes who have been accepted into the OGC Acrobatic Gymnastics program will be posted here.

You will be invited to pick up Registration Packages early this week.

Those athletes who are being offered a spot on the Acrobatic Gymnastics team will be contacted directly.

Those athletes who are being offered a spot and are new to the program will be contacted directly.

Those athletes who are not being offered a spot will not be contacted.

We are able to provide you with the training schedules for the 2017/2018 season.

Note that the Summer schedule is set but that the Fall schedule is tentative (but unlikely to change much from what is posted here).

May Acrobatic Gymnastics Schedule UPDATED

Here is the May Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Schedule.

Please note that there are a few changes due to the Victoria Day weekend and the 2017 National Acro Cup and Aerobics Invitational.

Only Scott and Greg's Age Group and Junior/Senior groups will be training at the new facility. It is possible that after the 2017 NACAI other groups might start integrating trainings in the new facility into their schedules.  (the Provincial 1, 2, 3 and 4 groups as well as the Boys group will still be training at OGC).

Open Tryouts are only for new athletes.  Current acrobats will be assessed in their regular classes. 

Schedules for the summer and fall will be posted here soon.

New group placements will be posted here on the blog following the Open Tryouts.

Please understand that due to most athletes remaining in the program there may not be much movement of athletes from group to group.  Please trust our decisions and our plan for your child as we put a great deal of time and consideration into who is placed in specific spots.  Acro is not like school where you move up a Level or a group each year.  Athletes may remain in a level and a group for several seasons.  This doesn't mean that the athlete is not improving or valued in our program.  

***UPDATED MAY 22nd***

Friday, May 26th all P2, P3 and P4 athletes will train in OGC as per regular.  Due to a large number of registrants needing the competition gym for training during the day and the competition starting on Friday night there is no time available for our Provincial athletes to use the competition floor.  It is better that they get floor time to run routines in our regular gym time.

Event Schedule Update

Here is the updated Acrobatic Gymnastics 
Event Schedule for 2016/2017

Items to note:

Ontario Championships are coming up in Pickering.  The competition schedule is already posted here.

National Acro Cup is coming up at OGC May 26th to 28th.  Be sure to invite all of your friends and extended family to come watch the best Acro in Canada compete for the big cup.

OGC Year End Banquet Awards Dinner is a different event than the OGC Year End Gala Gymnastics Show.  They are not the same thing.

There is one more event for the Provincial 2 Girls Acro Group,  the Boys Acro Group and the Provincial 3 Girls Acro Group, Ontario Gymnaestrada.  An email will be circulated to these three groups inviting them to participate in this large performance style event which includes a weekend of workshops and fun in Hamilton June 17th and 18th.

See the explanation of what Gymnaestrada is below the updated event calendar.

The P2, P3 and Boys groups will be doing a large multi-group routine for the OGC Year End Gymnastics Show.  We will have a routine to perform at the Ontario Gymnaestrada and this will provide the younger kids with an opportunity to learn a bit more about how to be performers.  Look for an email with more information about the Ontario Gymnaestrada this week.
