Register HERE for The Handstand Clinic

SKILL CLINIC - HANDSTAND

If you have a kiddo who is struggling with their HANDSTAND – this is the clinic they need!
WEDNESDAY, JULY 6th & August 3rd
12:00 – 1:00pm
Why is a Handstand so Important? – The handstand is the fundamental position in all tumbling elements. Round offs and back handsprings – the building blocks for all tumbling lines contain handstands. Learning how to have proper form in handstand positions as well as the strength it creates through the core and shoulders will improve power and speed in both standing and running tumbling. Even a layout (building block for all twisting skills) contains a handstand shape (without arms of course).
Register HERE for The Bridge/Backbend Clinic

SKILL CLINIC - bridge/backbend

If you have a kiddo who is struggling with their Bridge – this is the clinic they need!
WEDNESDAY, JULY 13th & August 10th
12:00 – 1:00pm
Why is a Bridge/backbend so Important? – These skills are important to acquire proper back, hip and shoulder flexibility. The muscles in the shoulders, legs and back are also strengthened when practicing these skills so the body can be properly supported during more difficult skills, decreasing the risk of injury.
Register HERE for The CARTWHEEL Clinic

SKILL CLINIC - Cartwheel

If you have a kiddo who is struggling with their CARTWHEEL – this is the clinic they need!
WEDNESDAY, JULY 20th & August 24th
12:00 – 1:00pm
Why is a Cartwheel so Important?  Cartwheels are the building blocks to round offs. Important steps to the cartwheel include the lunge (distance and depth of lunge are important to allow for the strongest push-off), the handstand shape (being completely vertical while passing over the top is critical), the 1/2 turn while upside down allows for redirection (go from travelling forwards to backwards mid-skill) and the landing (how to position the weight of your body in the lunge to prepare for additional skills)

Day Camps at West Wind!

Camps at West Wind have never been so FUN!  We have partnered with educators to incorporate detailed themes, crafts, education, and culture with our fun and active environment.  Each camp will have an exciting theme with several games and crafts for different age groups.   Campers will spend at least 3 hours per day on the equipment learning gymnastics, but progressing and perfecting gym skills is NOT the purpose of our day camps!  We want the campers to make friends, be physically acvite and most importantly, have FUN.

Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF) requires athletes to pay an annual membership fee of $55 that is valid from July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022.  This fee is not due for single day camps and clinics.  AGF allows athletes to come to a gym UP to 3 visits before the fee is mandatory.  This is why if you are enrolled in a full week’s camp, or a monthly program, the AGF Fee is required.   The annual AGF Fee is good for all classes and events we offer, until June 30th of every year.  It is also interechangeable between all gyms in Alberta.

Campers MUST be fully potty trained.  Please let us know if your child has any allergies.
