Recreational Program - age 5.5+
The Strathmore Gymnastics Centre follows Gymnastics Canada's philosophy of FUN, FITNESS, and FUNdamentals - emphasizing FUN! Our recreational program allows kids of all levels to work through 11 progressive badge levels, each level allows them to advance on skills they have previously learned to keep them having fun and staying challenged. The badge system allows for athletes, parents, and coaches to monitor progress as well as give the athletes motivation to keep moving up the badge system. **

Participants should be aware that as the difficulty of the levels increase, it is much more difficult to get through one level each session. Keep working hard, learning, and most importantly - HAVE FUN!
Advanced - SGC Levels 5+

Advanced Rec is a class for those gymnasts who have mastered basics and have a good start on the fundamentals required for more advanced skills.

This is still a fun recreational class, though it is recommended that athletes are aware it is a more difficult class, with harder skills. Participants should be aware that as the difficulty of the levels increase, it is much more difficult to get through one level each session.
