CanGym Badge Program

Posted on: June 4th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Our goal at London Gymnastics Academy is to provide children the opportunity to develop basic gymnastics skills in a fun and controlled environment. The CanGym program, a nationally recognized curriculum for recreational gymnastics developed through the Canadian Gymnastics Federation, is a 12-level skill-based program.

Each child can challenge themselves throughout each session and work on the CanGym skills at their own pace. The key skills in this program can be considered “building blocks” for more advanced gymnastics skills, but also stand alone as excellent recreational level skills. Having fun, developing fitness and acquiring fundamental skills are the goals of this program.

At the end of their first session at LGA, every child in our Junior programs and up will receive an LGA Report Card clearly indicating which skills have been mastered. This is the athlete’s ongoing record of his/her achievements. When a badge level is completed, the child will receive that badge at the end of the session. Please take note that progress through the various levels depends on each child’s abilities and efforts and that, as such, it may take more than one session of classes for a child to pass a particular badge level.

*Children in our Parent & Tot and Kindergym classes will receive a certificate at the end of their sessions.
*If for some reason the athlete is unable to return their booklet, or if it has been lost, a replacement will be provided at a cost of $2.00. The last badge level achieved will be noted in the new booklet, and the child will again have their own copy.
