CLUB SPONSORED FUNDRAISING

These activities are defined as events operated through Ortona with support from the members, where funds generated are split between the members and the club.

No events at this time  - refer to Ortona Gymnastics Parents Association for current fundraising events. 

LEAP Parent’s Association

Establishing Fundraising Society

We are asking for members to join a member lead fundraising group.  The intent of this group is to form a society, complete with a board that can utilize fundraising methods to help offset some of the costs incurred in the sport of gymnastics.  The majority of the framework for this society has already been completed and we need the help of willing individuals to give their time to keep the momentum going.

The largest proceeds for fundraising are events such as casinos and raffles, but in order to benefit from these events we must be a fully organized society and there are restrictions in place regarding the length of time we have been established.  It is the goal of the member led group to be in a position to be eligible to apply for these opportunities within the next 2 year.

Ortona’s Field Trips:

Most students would say that the best field trips are about having fun, while most teachers feel that field trips should be about education. So where is the happy medium?

The answer can be found in an Ortona Gymnastics Club field trip.

Here at Ortona, we combine fun games, activities and gymnastics circuits to create a field trip that is not only engaging and exciting but also physically challenging and educational for every grade level.

We offer field trips year-round for all grade levels and for students of all abilities.

The Benefits of an Ortona Field Trip:

Here at Ortona, our mission is simple: Gymnastics for all.

Offering field trips for Edmonton and area schools helps us achieve this mission. We strongly believe that an Ortona field trip offers students a chance to exercise their bodies and minds. Students leave feeling accomplished, enthusiastic and proud knowing that what they learned is a fun and exciting way to stay healthy.

Gymnastics is a well-rounded sport that promotes active bodies and active minds. Body awareness, self-confidence, communication skills and enthusiasm are just some of the many physical, mental, and emotional benefits of an Ortona field trip. By introducing students to gymnastics in an exciting, safe and stimulating way, we encourage daily activity for life.

Our coaches are qualified, professional and can efficiently coach any age group, and all the gymnastics equipment is provided. Our incredible facility provides a positive learning space for students to grow and develop.

With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why an Ortona field trip is the perfect option for any student, class, grade or school.

Our Program:

Discover, Explore, Learn

The Discover, Explore and Learn program provides students with a basic introduction to gymnastics and is ideal for groups who have had little prior experience in gymnastics. Students will gain a preliminary understanding of gymnastics by focusing on several core concepts:

  • Participating in multiple gymnastics disciplines, such as artistic, tumbling and rhythmic, will help students discover their physical niche
  • Fundamental movement skills provide a base for the more complex skills used in gymnastics and involve landings, locomotions, statics, swings, springs and rotations
  • Learning basic gymnastics terminology creates enthusiasm for the sport and gives students an advantage if they choose to continue with gymnastics
  • Understanding how to safely use the gymnastics equipment promotes responsibility and accountability among students
