CANADIAN GYMNASTICS WEEK 


The GymCan Gymnastics for All Council presents: “Canadian Gymnastics Week”, October 3-9, 2021.  This Canada-wide activity will use social media to unite our gymnastics community from across the country in celebration of our sport. 

#cdngymweek

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of this initiative are to unify the community, show support for the clubs and individual members, and share the love of gymnastics across Canada. Utilizing the week to help educate our community and beyond about the benefits of gymnastics.

FORMAT

Featuring a different fundamental movement pattern (FMP) each day, clubs and individual members are invited to take part in this online celebration by sharing a photo or video of how they can demonstrate and/or perform the FMP of the day. Over the span of seven days, we will come together virtually to showcase the creativity, commitment, passion, and pride of our Canadian gymnastics community! 

Participation is simple; clubs and individuals share their posts on their social media channel of choice (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter, etc.) on the day of their choice – or every day, because, why not?! Use #cdngymweek to join the conversation! We’ve also listed the official hashtags for each of the featured FMPs – let’s showcase creativity within our community and the different ways we know how to move!

Individuals – Post a photo or video on Instagram that highlights the featured FMP of the day, and tag @gymcan1 and your provincial/territorial gymnastics organization in your post along with the appropriate daily hashtag! 

Clubs – You can do the same and/or make the FMP of the day the theme for your club’s programs, spotlight your members participating on social media, and tag @gymcan1 along with the appropriate daily hashtag! We want this to be an opportunity to promote our sport to the public so let’s show everyone the exciting ways all participants can enjoy our sport! 

We would love to share your stories on our GymCan and provincial/territorial social media channels so please tag us in your posts (this is especially important if you’re posting Instagram stories as we can only share them if we’re tagged in them).
