Home > Competitive > Competitive Women’s Artistic Gymnastics
Competitive women’s artistic gymnastics is an Olympic sport featuring four events; vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor. Salto benefits from the strong gymnastics culture that exists in Alberta and is proud to be a part of such a strong community.
The competitive program is based on the USAG Development and Xcel programs modified by Gymnastics Canada for competition in Canada.
Athletes in the women’s artistic program generally train six to twenty-two and a half hours per week depending on skill level, and compete provincially usually attending one travel event outside of Alberta.
Gymnasts hours vary based on their age and skill level. 4 hours a week is the minimum training requirement for Xcel, where as gymnasts in the Development program train at least 6 hours a week.
Salto’s competitive gymnasts are invited to attend several competitions a year, based on their respective skill and commitment level.
Xcel is an alternative competitive gymnastic program aimed at gymnasts who have an interest in competing but are looking for a minimal time commitment or are joining at an older age. There are five levels in Xcel: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum & Diamond
The Development program is based off the Canadian Competitive Program. There are 10 levels with the CCP program. Those competing in levels 1-5 learn compulsory routines, where the music, choreography and skills incorporated into the routine are prepared for them in advance. Each level’s routine build progressively off the prior level’s routine.
