Etobicoke Gymnastics

Advanced Rec. Program

Potential team members come from our recreational classes. An evaluation is usually held in mid-August with consideration given to age based on availability of space.

Current team members do not need to be reevaluated once selected. They will be contacted in early August to see if they will or will not be returning in September for the coming season.

The primary difference between our Advanced Rec. Program and our Competitive Program is the Advanced Rec. Program will only train during the school year while the Competitive Program trains year round.

Gymnasts in the Advanced Rec. Program must be registered with Gymnastics Ontario as a competitive athlete. There are two components to the registration fee. First is the Individual Insurance Fee each participant must pay in order to be covered by the Gymnastics Ontario insurance program. Second is the Athlete Program Fee to cover the cost of athlete programming and the Gymnastics Canada membership fee. All membership fees are non-refundable.The difference owing between the Club Membership Fee and the Gymnastics Ontario Registration Fee is paid by the Club and is included in the calculation of your session fees.
