Recreational Gymnastics & Cheerleading Classes
Jumphouse Gymnastics bases its recreational gymnastics classes on the Cangym Program, which was created by Gymnastics Canada for boys and girls aged 6 and up. Cangym is a progressive program that allows your child to earn badges for their gymnastics achievement. Although the badges offer coaches a tool to monitor and evaluate progressions, our main focus is to provide a program that allows all children to experience and enjoy the sport of gymnastics. Our classes are all based on the Fun, Fitness and FUNdamentals of gymnastics.
Each class has a duration of 1 1/2 to 2 hours, once a week, depending on the level. Our sessions run for 10-12 weeks. With enough interest, we may also add a recreational class that participates 2x a week, for those who would like a little bit more!
The progression of the Cangym badges is as follows:
Burgundy, Red, Tan, Bronze, Purple, Blue, Turquoise, Silver, Orange, Yellow, Green, & Gold
— the burgundy and red badges are basic and tend to be easier to get through, sometimes completed in the same session. However, as the badge levels increase, so does the level of difficulty, and it often takes more than one session to complete a badge level.
— certain elements in each level MUST be attained before moving on to the next badge level
— coming from a different club or from a break in training may result in re-evaluation of skill level
— Our classes are combined mainly on badge level with age levels in mind.
Our recreational cheerleading classes are once a week for an hour. In these classes we focus on the basics of the sport of all-star cheerleading which are based on tumbling, jumping, stunting and dance. This is a fun team sport that is great for all ages and encourages team work, positive self esteem, physical activity!
