Interclub Meet February 4th

Just letting you know that there is an Interclub Level Tumbling Competition on February 4th, 2011 at the Futures Gymnastics Club in Mississauga.  The competition is titled "The Canuk Cup". 

Please check your e-mail for information and let Agnes or the coaches know if you are interested.

We would like as many of our interclub/developmental tumblers to participate as possible.

Sunday January 23rd Schedule CHANGE

Please Note the following schedule change for Sunday, January 23rd:

Provincial D and C Tumblers from Don and Wendy's Group will train 12:30 to 2:30pm.

Provincial B and A Tumblers from Don and Wendy's Group as well as the B and A Tumblers from Niki and Don's group will train from 2:30 to 4:30pm.

National Level Tumblers from Niki and Don's group will be having a Mock Meet between 4:30 and 6:30pm. National Tumblers need to wear their new competitive attire (if your suits are being altered wear something that would be passable as a competitive suit).  We will have judges attending.  Please bring $5 to Don or Niki this week so that we can purchase a gift for the judges who are coming to score your passes.

2nd Ontario Cup / Interclub Competition

Just to let everyone know the 2nd Ontario Cup for Tumbling will now be on February 5th and 6th rather than January 29th and 30th (you should already know this as we did send out an e-mail).  It will be at Futures Gymnastics Club in Mississauga.

I just confirmed with the host that they will have an Interclub Competition included in this meet.

We will get more information out to you as soon as we receive more.

Please note that THIS competition, the one we host for our kids alone in May and the Retro Summer Invitational in June are the only Interclub meets we foresee this year.  If another competition comes available we will let you know (the only other one we are aware of is scheduled for North Bay and we think that is a bit far to travel for this level of competition).

New Camera

Thank you to everyone who pitched in to get me a new camera for Christmas.  It has a great slow motion feature that is really useful for helping tumblers to see where they are making an error.  Often the skill is going so fast that it's hard to see where the error is occurring.  This feature will really be helpful for athletes to see where the correction can be made.  Thanks again. 

Thanks Bryan and Rachel for demonstrating this feature.

Scoring: How it works in Tumbling!

To read the info sheet simply click on it and it will appear in another window in a larger format.  Hope this helps.  There have been a few questions.  There are more fine points to judging than are provided here.  If you are really keen you can always become a judge yourself.  We usually have a beginner judge's course offered in the fall.  The more judges we have at the club the better.
