WOMEN'S ARTISTIC

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) is a  highly disciplined, perfection based sport.  Athlete’s train year round to perfect and compete routines on the four events listed below.  Athletes are given flexible training commitments over July & August, but encouraged to train as much as possible to learn skills of higher difficulty.  For more detailed information about this discipline, check out Gymnastics Canada’s website.

At West Wind Gymnastics, we believe that developing the character traits of an athlete are just as important as developing the skills.  Our athletes learn the values of hard work, discipline, accountability, perserverence, determination, good sportsmanship and contributing to a positive team enviornment on top of their gymnastics skills.  We invest in our athletes just as much as we ask them to invest into their training.

Tryouts for our 2019-2020 Team are scheduled for June 12, June 15, and June 29! We have space in our program for girls born 2009-2015. Enroll for tryouts online HERE!
