Gymnastics Saskatchewan hosts 4 levels of Women’s Artistic Gymnastics competition encompassing several different age groups.
Canadian Provincial Program – CPP (Formally the JO Program)
Gymnastics Canada has adopted the JO Program to provide direction and foster competition for different age groups of girls and young women of various levels of ability and commitment. The CPP Program consists of 10 levels – Gymnastics Saskatchewan uses this tool as a guide to provide programming for female gymnasts in Saskatchewan and allows gymnasts at Level 3 and higher to compete and try to qualify for Provincial Championships annually.
XCEL is an alternative competitive program offering individual flexibility to coaches and gymnasts. The goal of XCEL is to provide gymnasts of varying abilities and commitment levels with the opportunity for a rewarding competitive gymnastics experience. Athletes will compete Optional routines fulfilling 4 Special Requirements on each apparatus. This program will give gymnasts the opportunity to train and compete skills and routines that suit their strengths rather than competing compulsory content as is in the JO program. The XCEL Program offers five different levels; Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. XCEL Will not be eligible for Provincial Championships but will have their own year end competition.
The Aspire Program has been created to assist in the development of young athletes across Canada as they set their sights on participating in future high-level competitions. The program is divided into two levels and dedicated to mastering strong basic skills on all four events upon which to build contemporary advanced elements in the years to come.
Canadian High Performance
The High Performance athletes aspire to compete at inter-provincial and national levels or are already national high performance gymnasts. Athletes compete national and international rules, based on the FIG Code of Points. Provincial, inter-provincial, and national competition is provided in two age groups for national stream, and three for high performance.
