Competitive Rhythmic Gymnastics
We are pleased to offer a competitive program that will allow gymnasts to set their own goals and achieve them, in training 2-10 hours per week. All gymnasts participating in FVRG competitive programs must have a strong work ethic and contribute to creating a supportive and fun training environment. Gymnasts wishing to gain entrance to the 2018-2019 Competitive Team must first schedule a meeting with the Head Coach (those not previously enrolled in pre-competitive or competitive program may also be asked to schedule an assessment). Please inquire about the additional fees associated with competitive training (eg. bodysuit, tracksuit, competition fees).
Maximum training hours:
- Under 8 years: 4.5 hours
- Under 10 years: 6.5 hours
- Under 12 years: 10 hours
We strongly encourage gymnasts to gain sport and movement skills in other programs, particularly for our gymnasts under 12 years old. Participation in other activities will reduce gymnast burnout as the gymnast gets older, reduce overall dropout rates, and will help to ensure a healthy gymnast, with fewer injuries. Should a gymnast wish to train in excess of the above maximum training hours, the gymnast must be enrolled in at least one additional non-complimentary sport (eg. Chilliwack Ringette or Kayaking). Please consult Sport for Life for more information about the importance of multi-sport training.
Interclub Competitive - 8 years +
Enjoy the thrill of competition without the pressure. Interclub is the perfect place for gymnasts who want to experience the fun and excitement that comes from attending competitions while keeping training hours to a minimum, usually training once or twice a week. With fun and inclusivity at its core, the Interclub Competitive program will focus on skill development and performance. Gymnasts will compete at one FVRG event, a minimum of invitational competition in the Lower Mainland and perform at the FVRG Year End Performance.
Provincial Stream Competitive - 6-10 years and 11+
Do you aspire to compete against some of the best rhythmic gymnasts in BC? If you have the dedication, FVRG has the program. Gymnasts will focus on physical conditioning, skill development, and routine preparation with the goal of competing at one FVRG event, and two additional competitions within BC. Training will be a minimum of four hours per week, depending on age and interest. Gymnasts will compete in an Interclub Level, or BC Provincial Levels. Provincial Stream Gymnasts will receive 25% off additional specialty and sport skills training with FVRG, beyond the required four to five hours of training (eg. tumbling, contortion, RG skills, mental training).
