Women’s Artistic Gymnastics

The Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) program is made up of several levels of developmental and competitive streams. Younger gymnasts begin the WAG program in levels that focus on introductory gymnastics, learning and training to compete, and skill and ability development.
 
Each program is open-ended so that the coach can alter and adapt the program to best suit the needs and abilities of each athlete. The programs are also tailored to match the child’s strengths and weaknesses. This tailoring ensures that each child gets the best training possible and results in a unique experience for each athlete.
 
Athletes in the WAG program advance through these levels which are ordered by age and ability.

Men’s Artistic Gymnastics

The Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) program is a competitive program that is divided into 6 levels. Each level is based on Gymnastics Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework. LTAD ensures the optimal development for gymnasts of all ages, interests and abilities and in all gymnastics disciplines and helps every athlete reach their full potential. 
 
Aspiring gymnasts enter the program between the ages of 6 and 8. At the lower levels of the program athletes learn the basics of MAG, and as they move forward they are taught the skills needed to compete at each level. The higher the level, the harder the elements and skills.
 
Athletes who excel at an earlier age are able to go into the high performance stream which consists of higher difficulty skills and routines. These athletes can eventually be named to the National team.
 
The MAG competitive program runs all year. Lower level athletes train between 6 to 12 hours a week, while the higher level athletes train between 16 to 24 hours a week.
 
Each of the 6 levels correspond to the LTAD program established by Gymnastics Canada:

Trampoline & Tumbling

T&T at Ortona, is divided into 3 different sections based on age and skill level. Each program is loosely based on Gymnastics Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework. LTAD ensures the optimal development for gymnasts of all ages, interests and abilities and in all gymnastics disciplines and helps every athlete reach their full potential. There are 8 stages for LTAD, and each Ortona program corresponds to an LTAD stage.
 

FAST Program:

Ortona no longer offers developmental programs specifically for T&T; however, interested athletes can enter into a broader program which teaches skills for either WAG and T&T or MAG and T&T. This allows the athlete to develop a wider range of skills in the sport of gymnastics.
 

Competitive T&T Programs:

Our competitive program has grown over the years, and we are proud to offer athletes the opportunity to compete in T&T competitions across Alberta, Canada and worldwide. Our athletes typically train 9 to 15 hours a week and work on developing strength, flexibility, technique and creating routines for the competitive season. The competitive programs run year round.
 
OGC T&T Pre-Competitive Stream- LTAD 4
This program begins to transition athletes away from artistic events such as the floor and vault and instead focuses athletes on specializing in a T&T discipline such as trampoline, double mini trampoline and tumbling. Athletes begin to learn single flips without any twists.
 
OGC T&T Provincial Competitive Stream- LTAD 5
This program begins to train athletes for competitions and invitational levels to sanctioned
events such as Provincials and Westerns. Athletes begin to learn how to incorporate flips into routines and how to introduce twists and turns into flips.
 
OGC T&T National Competitive Stream- LTAD 6
At this level, athletes begin to compete and travel nationally and internationally at competitions like Nationals and Canada Cup. The program is largely devoted to developing routines for these competitions. Athletes begin to learn double and triple flips.
