From talk to action! Rhythmic Gymnastics Manitoba is now poised to implement changes on how coaches submit the music at competitions. One hour “hands on” workshop November 21 11:00-12:00 is a must for clubs hosting invitational competitions and definitely must for the coaches preparing gymnasts for competitions.
Many thanks to everyone involved in making rhythmic gymnastics visible at the Santa Clause parade last Saturday.
This was RGM first attempt in being Parade Ambassadors.
Thank-you to Zdravka for recruiting Emily, Kristi, and Danielle and supplying the most of hoops. Thank you Mrs. Cloutis for overseeing the activity. Read more..
Big, big disappointment! We did not received a single contest submission. We certainly hope that there is more lively spirit in rhythmic gymnasts in Manitoba than judging by this response. We challenge the coaches to lead by example and respond to our VP Marketing call for volunteers.
In her own words Zdravka Tchonkova writes to the Club Presidents and the Coaches: “This is a friendly reminder for submitting the names of the coaches willing to participate at Santa Clause Parade. Please email me the names by TOMOROW. It would be ideal if we have a coach from each club! This will be fun event!” Zdravka can be reached at the following e-mail.
Rhythmic gymnastics, one of the disciplines of gymnastics develops physical literacy combining fundamental movement patterns with use of small hand apparatus i.e. Rope, Ball, Hoop, Ribbon, Clubs, Scarves, etc. The benefits of rhythmic gymnastics are immeasurable!
Participants develop flexibility, strength, endurance, hand-eye coordination, and creativity in fun environment. Many participants in gymnastics programs go on to play other sports with ease as gymnastics has given them skills transferable to many sports.
