TRYumph Gymnastics Academy, located in Ottawa, Ontario, is committed to providing you, your family, and the community with top quality gymnastics programs. We strive to earn your trust as professional sports instructors.
The training your child receives at our gym will be positive and the benefits will last a lifetime. Self confidence is built through positive achievement. A sense of accomplishment and self motivation create self worth and value, this promoting a positive mental attitude and developing physical well-being.
Our unique approach comes from the culture that we want to implement and from the Pre-Athlete Program that we developed according to Canadian Sport Policy 2012 and Physical Literacy.
Physical literacy gives children the tools they need to take part in physical activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success; and is a key component of Canada’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) program.
At TRYumph Gymnastics Academy, we offer a pre-athlete program designed by Canadian Olympic Team coaches Paul ApSimon and John Hawes, and former US silver medal winning Olympic Team coach Michael Pederson. This pre-athlete program will focus on establishing a vast array of fundamental movement skill along with the ABC’s (Agility, Balance, and Coordination) learnt in a regular gymnastics program. Physical literacy is the ability of an individual to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole is important for every individual, because it is related to the holistic nature of a person, the importance of our relationship to the environment in which we live, and the role of movement in the development of both cognitive functions and sense of self Physical literacy is recognized as a precondition for the lifelong participation in, and enjoyment of, sport. Ideally, development of physical literacy is begun in childhood and improved throughout one’s life. It is both a driver of performance for the competitive athlete and a foundation for active living and health for everyone. Physical literacy can be learned through physical activities other than sport, such as physical education and play.
