Woman’s Artistic Gymnastics Programs
Canada has the potential to be one of the leading countries in the world in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. We have incredibly talented gymnasts who benefit from the sport every day as they progress though the various competition streams available across Canada.
Canada has two primary programs for competition, the Canadian Competitive program and the Canadian High Performance program with a developmental program (Aspire) that helps talented young athletes master strong basic skills on all four events to prepare them potentially to move into the High Performance or higher level gymnastics. To complement our programs, Gymnastics Canada also organizes National camps which focus on the identification of talent and the development of the athletes and coaches striving towards high performance gymnastics.
Canadian Competitive Program (CCP)
The Canadian Competitive Program was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely. The program allows the gymnast to advance at her own pace, competing in more than one level in a year, if she so chooses.
Canadian High Performance Program
The Canadian High Performance Program (HP) is the preferred pathway for athletes aspiring towards National Team. It is the pathway that will lead a gymnast towards the pursuit of excellence and achievement of medals at the highest international level.
Canadian Aspire Program
The Canadian Aspire Program (CAP) has been established to assist in the development of young athletes as they prepare for higher level competition. The program is dedicated to mastering strong basic skills on all four events upon which to build contemporary advanced elements in the years to come.
Canadian Aspire Camps
The WAG Aspire Camps are a component of the Canadian Aspire Program which focuses on the long term elite development of our upcoming athletes and coaches. The camps focus on the specific technical development of the basics, leading towards more advanced skills on all events.
