What is in a provincial routine?

I had an email from a parent of a new competitive athlete. This parent asked, "Being new to competitive trampoline, I was wondering if is there a document available that describes the elements that are required in routines for Provincial levels A, B and C?" As I was answering her question I thought others might have the same question.

At BC Provincial Trials in the preliminary round all trampoline athletes do one compulsory routine and one optional routine. Compulsory routines are set for each level. To see what these are you can refer to these documents on the Gymnastics BC website.
10 and Under compulsory routineProvincial C, B, & A compulsory routinesOptional (referred to of voluntary routines) routines are created by the athlete's coach and have a required minimum and maximum degree of difficulty. 

After the preliminary round the top 10 athletes in the category move on to finals. Athletes that qualify for finals will do a second optional (or voluntary) routine. …

Good Luck in Portugal!

Anita Cirillo, of Shasta Trampoline, has been named to Team Canada for the World Cup in Loule Portugal. This competition is being held September 21-25, 2010. There will be live streaming of this competition. Once I have a schedule and start lists I will post when we can watch Anita.

Congratulations to Anita for this great accomplishment and good luck in Portugal.

Are We Excited Yet?

Our National Athletes have been involved in a variety of pre-season training activities like:

a two day camp with Olympic Trampoline coach Dave Ross from Skyriders Trampoline.   Karen Cockburn (three time Olympic Medalist), Rosie MacLennan (2008 Olympics 7th) and Jason Burnett (Olympic Silver Medalist 2008) all train out of Skyriders with coach Dave Ross so this was an amazing opportunity for our athletes.a one day conditioning camp that concluded with kayaking in Port Moody at Rocky Point Kayakstime at Quantum Gymnastics using the pit and the four point bungee system (Thanks June!)
Now it is time for the entire team to begin training for the 2010-2011 T&T season. Regular training starts today so if you are in a Monday training group you are training today. Remember a water bottle and a healthy snack (or two).

For attire wear shorts (not baggy) and a t-shirt (not baggy). Or if you prefer a training bodysuit/singlet. Also no jewelery please.

We are looking forward to another great S…
