Fundamental Team Try-Outs for Girls 

SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE FOR REGISTRATION

** you only need to come to one tryout time ** There will be a $10.00 tryout fee

Birth years 2012 to 2019

 

Towards the end of the season (April/May) is when we typically host Fundamental Team Try-outs depending on how many of the team moves up to the competitive program, and how many plan on returning next season. Milton Springers will post the try-out date on our website ahead of time as well as our Social Media IG and FB.  Registration is online so everyone has the same chance to sign up. The cost for the try-out is a non-refundable fee.

To help give you an idea of what coaches will be looking for, here is a little outline:

Body Line: Tight flat knees, strong toe point, rigid body.

Strength: Chin ups and Legs lifts are a good indicator. A chin up bar at home is an easy way to practice these 2 important markers for strength.

Flexibility: All 3 Splits (Left,Right and Middle splits), Bridge, and pike stretch
 
Handstand line: Either full handstand against the wall or lying on tummy on the floor showing nice/tight line and open armpits.
 
Skills: Handstands, Cartwheel, and More.
 
Throughout the tryout coaches will also be watching for: Attitude, Bravery, Coordination, Correction and Effort, and Coachability.  If your athlete does make the Fundamental Team, more information regarding team training hours, commitment, fees, etc…will be communicated to you through email. Your athletes fundamental team placement will be determined by age, athletic ability, and based on team open spots.

 

Fundamental Team FAQ's

What is the Fundamentals Program?

Fundamentals is a 4 or 5 hour per week commitment (2 hours on a weeknight evening and 2-3 hours on a Friday evening or Saturday, depending on the group). This year we will also have a Jr. Fundamental program for 5 year olds that is a 3 hour per week commitment (1.5 hours on a weeknight evening and 1.5 hours on a Friday evening or Saturday, depending on the group). The program runs from September to June. It is a non-competitive program that focuses on developing strength, flexibility and
proper techniques to build a strong foundation for learning more difficult skills. Instead of report cards, coaches provide progress reports 1 time throughout the season before Christmas break. At the end of each year, we host an in-house Showcase for Fundamental athletes to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the season! Please note, availability in the 5 hour Fundamental group is extremely limited at this time.

Is the Fundamental Team part of the competitive program?

No, the Fundamental Team is part of the recreation stream. It can be a stepping stone to the competitive program in the future. 

How often will my daughter be training?

Fundamentals is a 4 or 5 hour per week commitment (2 hours on weeknight evening and 2-3 hours on a Friday evening or Saturday, depending on the group). The Jr
Fundamentals program for 5 year olds is a 3 hour per week commitment (1.5 hours on a weeknight evening and 1.5 hours on a Friday evening or Saturday, depending on the group)
Do I get to choose the day/time they train on? Can I switch days? Unfortunately not, athletes are added to specific teams based on their age/ability. They will be given a day/time that they will keep for the entire season.

Can you give me an idea of the fees for this program? (based on last year - subject to change)

The total cost for the 4-hour Fundamental program is $2080.00 plus the Gymnastics Ontario insurance fee which is $75 for this team. The total cost for the 5-hour Fundamental program is $2440 plus the Gymnastics Ontario insurance fee which is $75. The total cost for the 3-hour Fundamental program is $1750 plus the Gymnastics Ontario insurance fee which is $75. There is also a mandatory fundraising fee of $40-$50. These fees are for the entire season (September 2024 - June 2025). Payments can be made by installments or paid
in full at registration. More information will be provided when the packages are sent out in June. Please contact the office if you need to discuss an alternate payment plan.
Fundamental gymnasts have a team leotard that typically costs between $50-100. This is billed separately from program costs. The updated fees for the 2024-25 season will be sent out along with registration packages/instructions once team decisions are made. Please understand that the above fees are subject to change.

Can I withdraw if she doesn’t like it?

Yes, if the withdrawal is processed prior to December 31, 2024.

Does my daughter have to try out every year if they are accepted? No, if your daughter is offered a spot and is on the team already, you are not required to try out every season. If your daughter leaves the program and wants to return after an absence, she will have to try out again.
