Kippers is a Coach invitational program. Athletes develop at different rates, when children progress through the gymnastics exercises quickly and learn the gymnastics movements faster than their fellow classmates; our coaches will recommend them into one of our advanced recommendation only programs.
Ortona respects the diversity of our gymnasts, and we truly believe that all our athletes are extraordinary. By offering recommendation only programs, we continue to allow all our gymnasts to work and develop at their own pace without restricting their abilities.
An invitation into a recommendation only program is based on several factors such as an athlete’s physical ability, flexibility, coordination, listening skills and learning speed. Above all, an athlete should have a positive attitude and a desire to work hard and give it their all.
If your child has not been recommended into a specialty class, and you feel that they show potential, please feel free to request an assessment. This form can be found under the Request Assessment tab in the navigation bar located at the bottom of our website.
