Winstars would like to congratulate all of our athletes who qualified to the Eastern Canadian Championships taking place May 5-7.
This year Winstars has seven T&T athletes attending these championships taking place in Amherst, NS competing in all three trampoline disciplines. Both coach Rob and Alyssa are excited to travel to the east coast with these hard working athletes.
Winstars is so excited to have Anis B. qualify to these championships. Anis B., who has autism, is an amazing person and hard working athlete. Anis B. recently brought home his first gold medal at the 3rd T&T qualifier in Oshawa. Winstars is so proud of Anis B. and his outstanding accomplishments in this sport. There are NO boundaries or barriers for this young man in his sporting career. Go Anis!!
This is the first year that Winstars has had a WAG athlete qualify for Eastern's taking place this year in Sackville, NB. Holly L. has worked very hard over the last several years after coming back from a devastating injury from breaking both arms in a gymnastics fall. She has persevered and challenged herself to improve her skill level in order to compete at Level 7 the last two years. It's this determination which has allowed her the success of qualifying for these championships as a member of the Ontario four member team.
We congratulate Holly L. and coach Karen on their great success this year!
Best of luck to all our Winstars athletes in the east coast!!

Winstars Gymnastics was excited to participate in the Canadian Gymnastics Week which took place February 12-18, 2017.
This is a great opportunity to show call Canadians and more importantly, Windsorites, just what the sport of gymnastics is all about. In essence, gymnastics starts with dominant movement patterns (DMP) which then equate to the potential skills learned throughout the life of a gymnast. These dominant movement patterns allow the gymnast to learn the basic fundamentals of gymnastics by progressing through various skills progressions which will eventually lead to the development of pure gymnastics skills.
At Winstars Gymnastics, "Sports start right here. Be a part of it!" is our tag line which helps explain how the sport of gymnastics will and can benefit ALL other sports that a child may participate in. A child may ultimately choose a sport such as soccer after sometime in gymnastics. But, after being involved in gymnastics we can tell you this soccer player is going to have more agility and body awareness than your average soccer player.
During each day of #CdnGymWeek, we focussed on these DMP's. Have a look at the ways our happy gymnasts learned how to master these DMP's.
Thanks to all our amazing staff for continuing to promote and teach this great sport of gymnastics. Special thanks to Holly for capturing all of these great Winstars moments. #winstarsrocks

Winstars would like to remind our members that our recreational program will have NO classes from December 24 to January 6, 2017 (inclusive).
From our Winstars family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas. Winstars wishes you safe travels where ever they make take you during these holidays.
The sport of gymnastics is not easy that's for sure! As each athlete trains hard 2-4 days per week for 3-4 hours, they see small steps in the progress of skills.
But, the KIP on bars is the ultimate skill to learn and is the most difficult technically for those young gymnasts. To accomplish this skill is so satisfying it makes many athletes want to scream with joy.
But, when you learn your KIP and your team mates are screaming with encouragement and happiness, that is priceless.
Congratulations to all those Winstars athletes who have learned their KIP recently!!
