The Interclub level is for children who would like to participate at a more advanced recreational level of gymnastics. Routines on all apparatus will be choreographed and gymnasts will take part at 2-3 meets throughout the season. This level of gymnastics is for children 7 years of age and older. An annual training commitment of 3 hours/week is required. The Interclub Program gives gymnasts the opportunity to work towards showcasing the skills and routines that they have been working on in their regular classes at invitational Interclub competitions. If your child shows some aptitude for gymnastics, and would enjoy the challenge of friendly competition, this program would be ideal. The coaches can help your child progress through the stages of learning new skills on the different events. This program also allows previous competitors to stay involved at the sport of Gymnastics as there are two Interclub levels; Traditional (beginner-intermediate level) and Performance plus (Intermediate to advanced levels). The athletes begin their training in September and continue through until June, with a break during the Christmas holidays.
Interclub requires a 10 months commitment
Junior Olympic Program Pre JO 1-JO 6
By Invite Only
Being involved in the competitive program will require a commitment but it will also offer your child the opportunity to learn personal discipline and to gain tremendous self-confidence as they build individualized goals and accomplishments.
Fun is still important at this level, but athletes are carefully guided towards the competitive levels. Gymnasts with the right skills, who show interest in competing, and are willing to commit to organized yearly training are invited to move into our advanced classes. Gymnasts who meet certain standards of excellence are selected for our competitive teams.
Physical and emotional well-being, along with personal and gymnastics skill development, are the primary objectives of this program as gymnasts learn to apply their mind and body to the fullest extent.
Competitive team is a year round commitment and training at any team level includes multiple days per week. The number of hours a competitive gymnast trains increases as their level increases.
Wayland Sports Penticton's Competitive Program
Along with Gymnastics BC and Gymnastics Canada, we have adopted the Junior Olympic (JO) program which was developed in the United States. This program consists of 10 levels. Levels 1-5 is compulsory and levels 6-10 consist of optional routines, which are evaluated on specific criteria. This level system provides great long-term benefits aimed at keeping athletes motivated with smoother transitions from level to level and improved progression within one level. The program was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely.
Learn the Basics: Levels 1 to 3
• Levels 1 to 3 are compulsory routines with set choreography and music. They allow gymnasts to develop good and strong basics and can be used as a club non-competitive and achievement-oriented program or as an introduction to competition (which we do at WG).
Compulsories: Level 4 and 5
• Levels 4-5 continue to use compulsory routines and choreography. Both of these levels are progressive in nature, building upon the skills required at the previous level.
• Level 5 is often recognized as being more difficult that the Level 6, because it focuses on impeccable basics. This is an excellent preparation for athletes who want to go into the National level categories.
• Competitive opportunities exist at invitational meets and at GBC Championships (either as zone teams or as a category on its own).
Optional: Levels 6 to 10
• Levels 6-10 are competitive programs using optional routines. These levels have difficulty restrictions so superior level athletes don't overwhelm lower levels.
• Composition, including artistry will be evaluated in Levels 8 -10, so by now, they athletes must show grace and elegance while performing difficult skills.
Given the space and time restrictions at Wayland Sports Penticton, we are only able to offer a maximum of up to 12 training hours per week to our competitive athletes. The benefit to less time and space is that we are very fundamentals-focused and because of this, the girls have done exceptionally well at competitions. Training Days and Times
Wayland Sports Penticton Gymnastics runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays for JO 1 and 2. 3:30-5:30pm, and Jo 3-6 from 3:30-7:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The training days and times vary depending on the group as well as number of hours your daughter will be training.
Please note that all members are subject to an annual BC Gymnastics membership and insurance fee to be paid separate with your program fees.
