Cygnus Competitive Team
Cygnus has an incredible Competitive Gymnastics Team, who are currently the 2013 Winter Provincial Champions, 2013 Spring Provincial Champions and have achieved much success at the Atlantic, Eastern and National level stream!
We currently have over 100 Pre-Competitive and Competitive athletes, as well as a Display Team.
Our Pre-Competitive athletes are between 5-8 years old. All members have gone through an assessment process conducted by our coaching team. Athletes train 4 to 6 hours per week, with an emphasis on developing the necessary strength, flexibility, coordination and technique, as well as the basic body positions and fundamentals, for more advanced gymnastics.
The Cygnus Competitive program requires a considerable amount of training and commitment. These gymnasts practice from 9 to 20 hours per week, depending upon their level and are a minimum of 8 years old. Our athletes compete at the Provincial, Atlantic, Eastern and National Championships, as well as various Invitational Competitions throughout the year. This intense training is geared towards mastering advanced gymnastics skills and combining them into solid competitive routines. All gymnasts have their own routines based on their individual strengths. Girls will compete their floor exercise routines to music chosen by the coaches to suit the individual gymnasts.
All Rules, regulations and requirements are detailed in the FIG Code of Points, the Gymnastics Canada Gymnastique (GCG) Program Documents, as well as in the Gymnastics Newfoundland and Labrador (GNL) Programs Manual and related documents.
