Developmental Program: Beginning the SPORT Journey

Gymnastics is the foundation for all physical activity and sports. The Developmental Boys & Girls Programs are annual programs by invitation only on a year to year basis. The programs provide a solid base for the development of physical literacy ensuring that young athletes are well-equipped and confident to pursue gymnastics or another sport that may be more suited to them. Membership in this program requires an annual training commitment (August - June) with modified training during holidays.  

The Developmental Girls Program trains at the St. James/Millennium facilities and the Developmental Boys Program trains at Millennium. Attendance, attitude, coachability, work ethic, physical and skill testing throughout the year will be used to assess the athlete suitability to continue in the program. 

 

Areas of development are:

Physical preparation - strength, flexibility, agility, balance and coordination 

Cognitive development - space and body awareness, establishing patterning and problem solving 

Social development- confidence, communication, self-awareness and managing emotions
