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 4-12 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 2019-2020 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). Gymnasts will compete or perform at a minimum of two FVRG event, and two to four other events within BC. Please inquire about the additional fees associated with competitive training (eg. bodysuit, tracksuit, competition fees). Provincial Stream Gymnasts will receive 25% off additional specialty and sport skills training with FVRG, beyond the required four to six hours of training (eg. extra training, contortion/tumbling).

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.
