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.
