Entry into a Recommendation Only Program:
Sometimes our coaches notice children who progress through the gymnastics exercises quickly and learn the gymnastics movements faster than their fellow classmates. Our coaches will then 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 register tab in the navigation bar at the top of our website.
Ortona offers gender-specific programs for athletes focused on Men’s Artistic Gymnastics or Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. Ortona also offers a co-ed program for athletes who are undecided on what discipline to pursue.
