Programs

CCGC offers programs for all learning stages of gymnastics.

Recreational or Competitive, we have something for everyone!

Recreational/GFA

The Recreational/GFA (Gymnastics For All) Program at Capital City believes in creating a fun, fitness experience while learning the fundamentals of gymnastics. People of all ages are able to come into the gym and be physically active while exploring different kinds of movement such as jumping, twisting, swinging, climbing and springing. Gymnastics improves strength, flexibility, fine motor skills, balance and coordination while having fun. The skills learned at gymnastics benefits each individual when participating in all other sports.

Each gymnast involved in recreational gymnastics at CCGC is encouraged to reach their own potential. We believe that gymnastics teaches children that they can succeed in things and aids in building confidence and self-esteem. Recreational gymnastics is intended to be fun and make children feel good about themselves. The skills and determination young gymnasts learn can benefit them in all aspects of their lives. We encourage, in all participants, the development of personal character, good sportsmanship, honesty, courage, persistence, and dedication.

CANGYM (Badges 1-12)

CanGym (Badge Levels) – Ages 6 & Up

As stated by Gymnastics Canada, the CanGym program is intended for use with participants of varying abilities aged six and older, including beginner level participants through to entry-level competitive gymnasts. Utilizing the CanGym badge program allows participants, coaches, and parents to monitor progress in addition to be a motivational tool for athletes. The CanGym program includes three levels (Bronze, Silver & Gold) of skill progressions based on Gymnastics Canada’s Fun, Fitness, and Fundamentals Educational Philosophy, which helps to create a friendly and stimulating environment for all participants. Each level consists of four badges for a total of 12 different coloured badges that participants receive upon successful completion of that badge. Within the Bronze level, there is a focus on mastering fundamental movement patterns. Within the Silver level, the focus is on mastering fundamental skills on men’s and women’s artistic apparatus, while the Gold level focuses on mastering the identified target skills. Each badge consists of approximately 30 different skills. The key skills in this program can be considered “building blocks” for more advanced gymnastics, but can also stand alone as excellent recreational level skills.

Progress reports will be given to each gymnast at the end of each session. Coaches will complete the reports to indicate which skills the gymnast has “Attempted”, those they are still “Learning” and which he/she has “Mastered”. A participant has completed a badge when he/she has “mastered” each skill in that level and will receive a ribbon for each level that they pass. Some badges may take only one session to complete, while some may require multiple sessions.

IMPORTANT: Only the Burgundy badge requires no experience. All other badges require students to have completed the previous level.

Badge Level Progression:
Burgundy/Red (1&2)  –   Tan(3) - Bronze (4)  –   Purple GIRLS (5) - Blue GIRLS (6) - Purple/Blue BOYS (5&6) – Girls Advanced (7-12)

The CANJUMP program teaches children the basics of this sport. Participants are provided with reports to track their progress specific to Trampoline and Tumbling.

Teen Gymnastics

Does your 10-15 year old have alot of extra energy that they need to work off? Have they noticed that they always seem to be the oldest kid in their gymnastics classes? Here is our solution, we are bringing back the Teen class! Your child will get to experience all the gymnastics they would have done in a CANGYM class while not feeling like they are towering over the rest of their classmates. They will work on badges burgundy-blue with other teens while making some new friends and re-discovering their love of gymnastics.

Xcel

The Xcel Program was created as a national program in 2013, and by design, allows gymnasts to begin competing at a lower skill level than the Junior Olympic program.  As designed through USA Gymnastics: “Xcel is an alternative USA Gymnastics competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts.  The goal of Xcel is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels the opportunity for a rewarding gymnastics experience.”

Xcel is a USA Gymnastics sanctioned recreational-competitive team, adopted by Gymnastics Canada. In the last several years, Xcel has developed into its own full program, with levels Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. These levels coincide with the Junior Olympic Levels in the High-Performance route.

The gymnasts will have their own routines which they will have the opportunity to compete!

The gymnasts work with the coaches and will pick floor music that fits their personality and style! Our competition season for Xcel begins in January and typically ends in early May; however, Xcel team girls train 10 months a year (September to June), with the option to continue training during the summer to maintain their skills.

The Xcel program was created to keep gymnasts involved and excited about the sport. In many other sports, athletes can start competing in games and tournaments very quickly after they begin. However, with gymnastics, this is not the reality. Athletes in gymnastics will train for several years before meeting the necessary requirements to be able to compete. The Xcel program bridges the gap and allows gymnasts to start competing sooner, by lowering the skill requirements at the entry level.

In addition to the basic entry levels, the Xcel program also has more advanced levels that allow gymnasts to keep competing in the Xcel program as they progress to higher level skills. The Xcel program is ideal for not only entry-level gymnasts, but also older gymnasts that are looking for a fun way to stay in shape and be involved in the sport.
