Taiso is located at 1521 Quebec Avenue in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We are approximately half way between Circle Drive and 33rd Street.
What is the best age to start gymnastics?
Any age - it is never too late to start. We have recreation programs starting at 18 months through adults. Future Flippers (pre-competitive) usually starts around 5 years old. Competitive usually starts at around 7 - 8 years old.
Do I need to purchase the Gym Sask Membership?
Yes, all athletes, big and small have to purchase the Gym Sask membership each year. Our year runs from September 1 through August 31 each year. Each participant needs a membership, it is not per family.
Which class do I register my child in?
You can see the class descriptions here. First you want to start with their age, then you will look at their level. Sometimes you will have to look at maturity and independence when there are overlaps in age categories. Examples: 6 years old with no experience would join the beginner class for 5 - 7 year olds Independent 3 year old would start in the Taiso Tykes 3
What do the levels mean?
Our recreation program uses a Canada wide coaching program called CanGym. There are 12 levels within the program. Throughout the session, the athletes are being assessed to see if they are ready to progress to the next level. Sometimes, when an athlete first comes to class as a beginner, they may progress through a couple levels in one session. As the levels get higher, the harder they become. This sometimes means it may take 2 - 3 sessions to achieve what they need to successfully move to the next level. The levels are: burgundy, red, tan, bronze, purple, blue, turquoise, silver, orange, yellow, green and gold.
What do I do if the class is full?
We would encourage you to go on the waitlist. While we never know if and when a spot will open up, it does happen. If a spot does become available, the system will send a notification email to all of those that are on the waitlist. It will be first come, first served, so it is best to act on the notification as soon as you can.
When does registration open up?
The fall and winter sessions are approximately 10 classes, the spring and mini are approximately 7/8 classes, the summer is approximately 6 classes. The next session registration opens up 1 - 1.5 months before the session start date. The following are the general times registration opens: Fall - Early August Winter - Mid October Spring - Early January Mini - Early April Summer - Mid May
When will my athlete get to start competing?
Only certain programs will be given the opportunity to compete, which means not all athletes will. Because there is limited space on our competitive programs, there is a selection process. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org
