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!"

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.
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.

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!!
