The Taiso MAG Program (Men's Artistic Gymnastics) is a competitive provincial though high performance program based on technical proficiency, building a love for the sport while achieving successes, no matter the level. We aim to help all athletes reach their goals through fun, positive and knowledgeable coaching.
There are 6 events that are competed in the MAG discipline. These are Floor, Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars, Horizontal (High) Bar.
The Taiso MAG program has three programs that are used for the athletes – Developmental, Provincial Stream and National/ High Performance.
Developmental The MAG developmental program is designed to help the athletes grow and develop in their strength, flexibility and technique. They will do the same routines as the Provincial 1 level , however, it will be considered interclub, they will not be ranked against each other. The developmental level is designed to make it an easier transition into the provincial program. Athletes will work on basic skill development, to give them a solid base for any future programs they are in. We will emphasize fundamentals and progressions in a positive, fun and constructive manner, helping them learn, improve and develop into strong gymnasts. Interclub athletes may be given an opportunity to compete this year. This opportunity will be given to athletes who are old enough, have shown proficiency in their routines, have demonstrated a good work ethic and have shown proper training and competition behaviors.
Provincial Stream The men’s Provincial Stream is designed to prepare and develop athletes at a provincial level. The program is used Canada wide. There are 5 levels within the provincial program. Coaches will make decisions on levels based on skill development, proficiency in those skills, work ethic, and future development. Most athletes will spend at least two years in a level— the first to learn, the second to master with confidence. Athletes may be given the opportunity to compete in and out of the province. This opportunity will be given to athletes who are old enough, have shown proficiency in their routines, have demonstrated a good work ethic and have shown proper training and competition behaviors. Select athletes may be given the opportunity to travel internationally for training camps or competitions
National and High Performance Select athletes will be given the opportunity to train at a national or high performance level. These athletes will compete across Canada, with some given the opportunity to travel internationally for training camps or com- petitions.
