Developmental Program for Boys
Our Kickstart Program for Boys offers 2 groups based on athlete age and skill level:
B2 is the entry level of the Kickstart program. This level focuses on the FUNdamental stage where goals are set for gymnasts to develop a love for sport, to learn basic skills and to have fun. This group participates in regular physical testing and often one in-house meet . Athletes in this group are 5 to 6 years old and train between 5 to 6 hours.
B1 is the advanced level of the Kickstart program. This group participates in regular physical testing and often one to two in house meets or regional meets. This level focuses on more advanced skill acquisition and physical development. Assessment from this group will determine entry into the Men’s Competitive Program. Athletes in this group are 6 to 7 years old and train between 6 to 9 hours.
Acceptance into the program is by assessment and invitation only. This is an annual program which requires a full season commitment including summer and holiday training. Families also have a volunteer and fundraising commitment.
