1st Training Camp


The first Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp took place on November 27th and 28th. The Friday evening was hosted by the Zacada Circus School in Stoney Creek and the guest instructor was Kostia Zakharenko, the co-owner and founder of the School. Kostia was a 2 time silver medal winner of the World Championships for Acrobatic Gymnastics while representing the Ukraine. He was a performer in the Moscow Circus and Cirque Du Soleil for 10 years specializing in acrobatics. Kostia has been providing technical knowledge and lending his vision to Gymnastics Ontario over the past three years and we greatly appreciate his willingness to invite us into his facility in Stoney Creek. Kostia's enthusiasm for Acrobatics and his cool headed, kid friendly coaching makes him one of the great acrobatics coaches in the GTA.

A big thank you to Kostia for his support of Acrobatics in Ontario!!!

The entire school joined in to try some new skills, help out the athletes and coaches attending the camp and lend to the overall atmosphere of sharing. Thanks to everyone at the Zacada Circus School.
