There have been some questions as to what exactly each athlete needs to do with regards to TRYOUTS, RE-TRYOUTS, and CALL BACKS.

If you are in a Developmental Class or Inter Club but training in a Provincial Group you must attend the Developmental RE-TRYOUT on Wednesday, May 28th from 4:30 to 6:30pm. You will be tested against the other developmental tumblers. Some of the athletes will be invited to the Call Backs on May 29th to be re-tested against the best of the athletes from the Open Tryout.

If you are not invited to the Call Backs it means one of two things:

1) you are back in and your spot is safe


2) you are not being offered a spot in the program next year

If you are invited to the Call Backs you may be offered a spot or put on a waiting list.

Provincial Level tumblers or Provincial Level tumblers who train in the National group must attend the Provincial Level RE-TRYOUT on Tuesday, May 27th from 4:30 to 6:30pm.

If you are presently in the tumbling program you do not need to participate in the OPEN TRYOUT on May 22nd.

We have over 50 bodies registered for the open tryout. We have about 8 spots to fill in the tumbling program. Please remind your athlete to work hard over the next few trainings to prepare for the tryouts.

***Do NOTE that your performance, work-ethic, effort, dedication, participation and skill acquisition over the entire year will also be included in your evaluation. As well we take into consideration how the families of tumblers have been a part of the process. This includes how parents/guardians participated, stayed on top of resposibilities, and supported their athlete's progress as a tumbler.

Good luck. Please let me know if there are any conflicts. We will try to be accommodating but can only do so much.
