Skill Series of the Month

Here is a trio series performed by a group of girls from the Mississauga Gymnastics Club. Swan pose in a trio. It's simple but a good one to get started with once you know how to balance the swan position.

Video of the Month

Here is a video of the USA Women's Trio 12-19 Final routine. I love the music. My apologies for singing along in the middle. These three girls know how to perform. Nice polish on their routine, it's engaging and just beautiful looking trio.

To see a nicer quality video check this routine out on Youtube at:

Here I will make sure to post a picture of the month, a video of the month and a skill series of photos of the month to help with learning how to transition into and out of a skill.


Unfortunately due to low registration the Acrobatic Gymnastics workshop that was to be delivered at the Gymnastics Ontario Coaching Congress was cancelled.

So information that was going to be given out there will be given out here.
