Our recreational program offers classes starting at 6 years old, the girls will follow the Certification program we use at OGC. The program consists of the following levels:
Your child will be working on the skills needed to master the level she is in. They will learn skills on Floor, Vault, Beam, Trampoline and Bars. The coach will bring testing sheets around to record the progress. They will mark the skills as followed: E = emerging (Still working on the progressions toward the end result) C = Competent (Can show the coach the skill, but is not consistent yet) P = Proficient (Shows continuous success in performing the skill). This is consistent with the Physical Literacy Assessment for Youth.
As soon as the athlete has shown proficiency in all the skills, she will receive a certificate of completion and move on to the next level. That can be any time during the session. If the session isn’t over yet, we can move the athlete to a different class if there is space and the athlete’s schedule allows it. If that is not an option, the athlete will stay in the same class and will be working on the skills for the next level.
The athletes will receive a progress report at the end of each session. It lists the skills they are working on in the level and they will be marked the same as on the coaches testing sheet (E, C or P)
The kids progress at their own pace, not based on age.
