Junior Olympic (JO) Competitive Program

 

As of July 1, 2015 Canada has adopted the JO Program developed in the USA for use in the Provinces and Territories. The Junior Olympic program was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely. The program allows the gymnast to advance at her own pace, competing in more than one level in a year, if she so chooses.

The Canadian JO Program (CJO) has some modifications that are not in use in the USA or in other countries who have similarly adopted this program. These modifications are to assist our coaches and athletes in making the transition to JO from the previous national stream and provincial programs that have been in place in Canada. The rules of the JO program are otherwise being implemented in their entirety.

The following chart will identify eligible athletes for the years:
