Ask anyone why they participate in gymnastics, and they will tell you that it is FUN. Regardless of your age or ability, it really is fun to learn challenging new skills, to play on interesting equipment, to do exciting routines in a group or to perform in a demonstration or competition.

KIN Gymnastics is a Calgary gymnastics club specializing in WAG. If you are new to the sport, here is an explanation of what exactly WAG is! Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) is an extremely demanding discipline based upon an athlete’s precision and agility. Women are judged within their own respective categories (age and level) and use a range of apparatuses to perform their stunning routines.

Deductions are made for improper landings, inadequate amplitude and execution, lengthy pauses, falls, poor technique. For more detailed information about this discipline, check out Gymnastics Canada’s website. Women’s Artistic Vault: Gymnasts fly through the air executing precise twists and somersaults over a table shaped structure. Uneven Bars: Gymnasts perform continuous movement between two raised bars of uneven height resulting in a series of swings, twists, somersaults and handstands. Balance Beam: Rhythmic [...]
