The BGC runs the Can Gym Program which is overseen and monitored by the AGF ( Alberta Gymnastics Federation) and Canadian Gymnastics. This program is available to anyone ages 6 years of age and up.
This program is a Skill Development Program for Artistic Gymnastics created by Gymnastics Canada. The program allows participants to progress step-by-step, focussing on skill progressions and continuous learning through encouragement, positive feedback, and recognition awards.
The program is divided into three levels of badges (Bronze, Silver and Gold). These levels have been broken down into 12 different badges that require completion of approximately 20 skills. The goal of the program is to enable participants to transition from one level to the next. More information regarding this program is available from the BGC office. Performance and demonstration groups (see Gymfest class below) have the opportunity to shine locally, provincially and internationally at non-competitive events such as mall demonstrations, Gymfest and Gymnaestrada. Having fun, developing fitness and acquiring fundamental fitness skills are the goals of these programs.
Gymnastics is recognized by the Canadian Sport for Life, as one of three foundation sports integral to the development of fundamental movement skills. Fundamental movements are the building blocks to a child’s physical literacy. Just like reading or writing a child becomes fluent in movement through the development of physical literacy. The proficiency in movement skills enables children to confidently and successfully participate in a healthy and active lifestyle throughout the stages of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model.
