Ontario athletes have contributed greatly to the Canadian National Team program and it's international successes. Much of this is due to the talent and hard work of many international gymnasts such as two time World Championship medallist - Curtis Hibbert, and three-time Olympian - Alan Nolet. 

Pulsars Gymnastics provides a system through which a male gymnast can fulfill his full potential. From a foundation of recreational gymnastics, guidance is provided through both a Provincial Stream and National Stream Program. Pulsars offers a complete framework of opportunities for athletes and coaches to participate in the sport. 

Men's artistic gymnastics is the best way to initiate strong physical basics for all other sport development. Those athletes that choose to continue on with gymnastics past the introductory stages will enjoy the fun and challenge of further developing their coordination and concentration as they begin to perform new elements on the cutting edge of bio-mechanical possibilities!

Trampoline and Tumbling

The athletes for the competitive stream in Trampoline and Tumbling are tested and selected by the Head Coach, from the advanced recreational program or from the competitive artistic program.  Each of these two disciplines are complex in nature.  However, because it is one event the weekly minimum training for competition readiness is 6 hours.

 

Trampolining is a recreational activity, acrobatic training tool as well as a competitive Olympic sport in which athletes perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline. In competition, these can include simple jumps in the straight, pike, tuck, full flip, or straddle position to more complex combinations of forward or backward somersaults and twists. Scoring is based on the difficulty and on the total seconds spent in the air. Points are deducted for bad form and horizontal displacement from the center of the bed.

Outside of the Olympics, competitions are referred to as GymSport, Trampoline Gymnastics(TG), or Gymnastics, which includes the events of Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, Double Mini Trampoline & Tumbling.

Tumbling, also known as power tumbling, is an acrobatic sporting discipline which combines skills of artistic gymnastics with those of trampolining. It is sometimes practiced on a 25-meter-long spring track. Tumbling, which originated for entertainment purposes, is now codified, regulated, judged, and performed using standardized special acrobatic equipment.

Competitors, both male and female, perform two passes, each containing eight skills, along the track. Passes usually begin with a Round-off, Barani or Rudi (the Barani and Rudi are forward, twisting somersaults) which is followed by a series of back-handsprings and/or whips (a fast, long back somersault done in a straight body position) ending in a 'dismount' skill. In competition, only feet and hands are allowed to make contact with the track.
