Team Programs

Want To Join Our Gymnastics Team Program?

These athletes give a 10 month to a year commitment depending on their team. They train with the same group throughout the year giving them a chance to build close friendships with their fellow teammates as well as their coach. By gaining these friendships they become supportive and encourage each other throughout the year. Athletes in a team program have the opportunity to participate and represent our club in events such as The Santa Claus Parade, Skating Party, School Demos, Team Fun Night, Cartwheels for Cash, Showcase and a Banquet. These programs require a parent volunteer commitment.


2021 - 2022 Team Program Tryouts

The Barrie Kempettes Gymnastics Club will be holding ‘Tryouts’ for new athletes who are interested in being part of the Barrie Kempettes team programs. What you need for a Tryout: $25.00 Tryout Fee (CASH ONLY- non refundable), $80.00 Deposit (Cash, E-Transfer, VISA or MasterCard) and a complete Volunteer Application Form. If your child is selected for a Team Program, the $80.00 will be put towards your yearly fees. If your child is not selected, the $80.00 will be returned to you. Please contact the Main Office @barriekempettes@csolve.net for more details.

The tryouts are designed to determine and assess whether or not an athlete is well suited for our team programs. Athletes will be tested on various skills and physical abilities. Once tryouts are complete, parents will be informed by email as to which program their athlete has been selected for or not.

Team tryouts will be held for Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, Men’s Artistic Gymnastics and Tumbling. All programs offer an “Advanced Rec” option (non-competitive), an “Interclub” option (competitive) and a “Provincially / Nationally Competitive” option.

Parents and athletes are encouraged to arrive approximately 10 minutes prior to the start of their tryout to pay the $25 Tryout Fee and make the $80 Deposit as well if not already completed. The $25 Tryout Fee must be paid in cash. The $80 Deposit goes towards the athlete’s yearly team fees and can be paid by E-Transfer to barriekempettes@csolve.net, MasterCard or VISA. Please note that if your child is not selected for one of our team programs, the $80 deposit will be returned to you.

We encourage everyone who is interested to come and tryout. All gymnasts coming to tryouts should be in appropriate gymnastics attire (i.e.: body suit or shorts and a t-shirt and bare feet/non-slip socks).
