While the future may be uncertain as to whether or not Oakville will be hosting the 2018 National Acro Cup and Aerobics Invitational next spring, there is still so much to look forward to this 2017-2018 season!
OGC is currently preparing for two international competitions and is hopeful to have many OGC acrobats on the Canada Team!
2017 Pan American Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships Games
In October, the 2nd Pan Am Acro Championships are being held in Daytona Beach, Florida!
At the 1st Acro Pan American championships held in Puerto Rico in 2015, Canada’s Anastasia Sizov and Brenley Martin from Alberta won a silver medal for Women’s Pair (11-16). Only five countries participated – Canada, USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Brazil.
Pan Am Championship selections are being held AT OGC on June 24th and 25th. That’s just two weeks away!! It is an unbelievable opportunity for 18 gymnasts (7 partnerships) to compete for spots on the National Team.
2018 World Acrobatic Championships
The 2018 World Acrobatic Championships is being held April 5-8, in Antwerp, Belgium.
World Championships in Acrobatic Gymnastics are held only in even-numbered years. OGC was so excited that fourteen of its acro gymnasts were named to the Canadian team for the Acrobatic Gymnastics Age Group Competition in China, back in 2016!
This coming December, World Championship trials will be taking place in Calgary, Alberta. OGC’s Acro Coaches are hopeful that they will have more partnerships to compete for spots on the World Team!
Catch the excitement and start gearing up to support our young Acro athletes as they prepare for Team Canada selections/trials and the opportunity to compete at international events this coming season!
