Fall Gym News

Fall has finally arrived! This is my favorite season of the year! The weather cools down, the leaves begin to fall, and Christmas is only 2 months away!  Our fall session is underway, and we have been blessed with the addition of new children and families this year. Here is what is going on…

Gym Closure – We will be CLOSED on Halloween, which is Tuesday, October 31st, 2023. There will be NO MAKEUP tokens given out for this closure since we will have 4 Tuesdays of classes for the month of October.

Parent Coaching – Please leave the coaching to the coaches! It is very confusing for the kids when the coaches are giving directions and then the parents try to coach from the sidelines and tell them something different. It’s very important for the coaches to build that trust with the kids. Just sit back and enjoy the class and leave the coaching to us!

Classes Tardiness – I cannot express to you all enough the importance of getting your child to class on time. In the first 10 minutes of class, they do their warm-ups and stretching which is vital to their safety in class. Their muscles must be stretched and warmed up before class or the injury rate doubles. We have a 10-minute window for your child to get into class before we must reschedule their class. I understand there can be traffic, wet roads, and construction but a little preplanning on your part goes a long way!

Preschool Gym Update – We are very close to opening our new Preschool Gym, “Sweet Peas”!! It has been a long process, but we are so close to having an opening date. This gym will be for our 12 months – our five-year-olds and is located in the same shopping center, it's just across the driveway next door to the Cellphone Plus store. The new address will be 1772 W. Irving Blvd. We are almost finished painting, we have the new camera system installed, the bleachers are in, the mirrors are in the new dance room, and we have almost all our new equipment in. I cannot wait for you all to see it!

Looking Ahead at November – Our Annual Thanksgiving Feast Super Saturday will be November 18th from 6:00-10:00 pm. The gym will be CLOSED Monday, November 20th – November 26th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
