Gymnastics for Life

Former Ortona Competitive Athletes Program-LTAD 8

Ortona’s Alumni program is specifically designed for the former competitive athlete that want to train basic skills on all gymnastics apparatuses for both Men’s Artistic and Women’s Artistic disciplines. These apparatuses include floor exercises, bars, rings, vault, pommel horse and balance beam. Several gymnastics skills will be taught:

  • Basic tumbling (rolls, cartwheels, round-offs and handsprings)
  • Swings (casts, long-hang, glide, ring swings, parallel bar supports)
  • Vaults (tuck/straddle on and through, handsprings)
  • Basic pommel horse circles
  • Basic beam skills

The ultimate goal of the program is to allow the former Ortona competitive gymnast to train with other former Ortona competitive gymnasts that enjoy a structured training session on apparatuses they have become accustom to using over the many previous hours in the gym. Additionally, we want every athlete to build a base of gymnastics movements and skills that they can use to further develop their techniques and learn harder skills. Each athlete is challenged individually based upon the progress he or she shows, which guarantees that everyone is moving at their own safe pace.

It will be up to the coach assigned to the group, if they want to compete at an invitational meet at the end of the year but those discussions will happen in January.

 

The Benefits of Gymnastics:

Gymnastics is the perfect physical activity for any age level. Adults of all ages can reap the numerous benefits that come with regular gymnastics-focused exercises.

Gymnastics focuses on resistance training and functional strength. The long term benefits of resistance training include improved joint health, muscle development and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, gymnastics is an excellent way to improve flexibility which improves joint mobility, circulation and helps prevent injuries. As we age, our flexibility decreases, but gymnastics is the perfect option for combating this decline.

Most importantly, the greatest benefit that comes from an Ortona Alumni program is fun. Our classes will leave you smiling and feeling positive. You’ll enjoy coming to class each week and learning new ways to be healthy, and you’ll love seeing your health improve as the weeks continue. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why gymnastics is the perfect option for all adults.

 


Gymnastics is a fun-filled, non-contact activity through which children can develop self-confidence, experience a wide variety of challenges and opportunity for social interaction.
Gymnastics helps develop physical literacy in children. The development of these physical tools are needed to take part in activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. You’re never too young to gain something positive from the sport of gymnastics.
