Jubenville will represent Canada at the 2017 WAGC

Winstars Alexandra Jubenville, 20 of Belle River, will represent Canada at the 2017 Trampoline World Age Gymnastics Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria in early November. This will be the third time Jubenville will compete internationally.

World Age Group Championships

Alexandra will compete at these World Age Group Championships (WAGC) in the 17-21 year old category. This will be her last year due to her age to compete at these WAGC's. What does competing at these championships mean to Alexandra, "This is an awesome experience competing not only for Winstars but for Canada. I hope to do my best and ensure that I have given it my all. Training has been going well and I have had to train hard with more confidence." Alex has put in lots of preparation time for this WAGC and thanks Rob and Tracy for all their support and dedication.

Dedicated to her Sport!

Jubenville has been training in the sport of gymnastics, specifically tumbling, since 2009.  Alexandra is coached by Rob Laudenbach and Tracy Davies. Tracy says, "Alex has been working extremely hard for this competition for the past year. Her dedication and determination have helped her be the most prepared she can be." Throughout her career Alexandra has some ups and downs. But, her coaches feel this is her time to shine at this upcoming World competition.

Many Thanks

Winstars hosted an Open Gym night recently and raised $1500 toward her personal expenses to these WAGC. Alexandra stated, "I really want to thank Winstars and my coaches for everything they have done for me. I am very thankful to all those people who have supported my vision to compete at a World competition."

Come join our Ninja program!

Posted by Carey Vigneux on 1 November 2017

Winstars Gymnastics is excited to announce the offering of a Ninja Gym program. Our Sunday afternoon program for 10 years and up is already completely full. But, we still have a Thursday evening class 8:30-10:00pm. with availability. Our Thursday evening program will be geared to ages 14 and older.

"Ninja gymnastics has become a very popular new sport with the rise of shows like America Ninja Warrior. With this in mind, we decided to offer a Ninja gymnastics based program to promote this new sport in a fun and safe environment. All participants will learn basic Ninja gymnastics through obstacle courses, jumping drills, trampoline training and spatial awareness." stated Timarie Rideout, Supervisor and Ninja Developer. Timarie had the opportunity to learn lots of Ninja gymnastics drills and progressions while attending the Woodward Gymnastics Camp in Pennsylvania and California this past summer. She is extremely excited to pass on this information to all young people of Windsor.

Even though our session has started, participants who are 14 years and older can still register for our Thursday night class.

Rideout says, "Our first Ninja gymnastics class was so exciting and the kids learned lots. Not only is it a great physical actvity it's LOTS of fun too!"

Davies named Coach of the Year

Winstars Tracy Davies chosen as "Coach of the Year"

Winstars Tracy Davies, a veteran coach of almost 20 years, is Gymnastics Ontario's "Coach of the Year".

Davies, a former artistic and tumbling athlete herself, was presented by her good friend, Heather Smiley, with this honour on the weekend at the Gymnastics Ontario annual awards banquet. Tracy has worked for Winstars since it opened in 2000. For years, Tracy worked as a fitness instructor and desk staff in our fitness centre in our last two locations.

Provincial & National Champions

Since moving to Central Park Athletics in 2013, she has worked as a coach in the Tumbling program. In addition, Tracy works in the office as our competitive program administrator. Tracy has coached many athletes over the years and has had several provincial and national champions.

Most recently, Tracy (and fellow coach Rob), have coached Alexandra Jubenville for some time. Jubenville will be attending the World Age Group Trampoline & Tumbling Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria in November. Alex has competed at two previous international competitions last year in Portugal and New Zealand.

Winstars is very fortunate to have Tracy on our staff. We congratulate her for the years of coaching service to these young athletes. This "Coach of the Year" award is very well deserved.

  • Jacqueline C. in Tumbling
  • Sofia D. in Tumbling
  • Anis B. in DMT

No Boundaries or Barriers

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!!

Women's Artistic Gymnastics

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!!
