This month saw the first official meeting of the Gymnastics Ontario Acrobatic Gymnastics Working Group. It was held at the Trampoline and Tumbling Provincial Championships, Senenca College, Toronto, April 17th.
Our small group of Doug Shirton (GO Co-ordinator for Acrobatics, Aerobics and Men's Artistic Gymnastics), Jeff Coulter from Winstars Gymnastics in Windsor, Niki Lavoie from the Oakville Gymnastics Club and myself, Don Holmes, also of the Oakville Gymnastics Club convened a short meeting after the competition on Friday evening. All of us coach tumbling right now but also participate in acrobatics.
Long-term planning and promotions was the focus of the meeting. We hope to find a space on the Gymnastics Ontario website soon so that we will have a bit more exposure in the meantime I will post pictures, articles, links and notes here on the Acrobatic Gymnastics in Ontario blog.
We are planning a training camp open to all who are interested at either the Winstars Club or the Oakville Gymnastics Club sometime in May. I will post details here.
