Our Competitive Program provides an environment that fosters and nurtures the attributes of a sound mind, sound body, developing successful, healthy and well-rounded gymnasts. Our Competitive Program is built on long-term skill development with the intentional slowing down of our gymnast's learning curve providing them the necessary time to develop and perfect gymnastic skills in a safe, logical, progressive manner within our recommended training hours per level.
Over-training is the number one reason gymnasts leave our sport.
Our Competitive Program provides our Gymnasts with ample time for school responsibilities, family activities and an outside life with friends. Life is about experiences and the USAIGC/IAIGC provides a positive well-balanced Competitive Experience for ALL of its Gymnasts.
Our Competitive Options Prevent Gymnast's “Frustration” of being stuck in a competitive level:
-Skill Level determines their Competitive entry level.
-Mobility between Competitive levels is decided by their Coach, not a score.
-Their Progression of Competitive Levels does not have to be in progressive order.
-Gymnasts may compete on two Consecutive Competitive Levels as an All-Around Gymnast and/or an Individua
l Event Specialist on their next level up, with a maximum of 6 events in a Competition.
-USAIGC/IAIGC Provides Five Competitive Platforms:
All Around, Individual Event, Team, High School, and International.
USAIGC/IAIGC Tumbling Competition is held at our World Championships.
Open for both Boys & Girls (two separate competitions).
The Warrior Program is still developing within the USAIGC-IAIGC Clubs.
