January 2023 Gym News
I hope you all have had a wonderful Chirstmas. We are looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
Holiday Closure Hours – Just a reminder the gym will be closed until January 3rd. All classes will resume on Wednesday, January 4th.
Drop Off – DO NOT DROP YOUR CHILD OFF without making sure they have entered the building and begun class. Just because the lights are on and there are gymnasts working out DOES NOT mean there are classes going on. We’ve had team workouts on some closure days and children not in our team program have been dropped off without parents. For the safety of your child, make sure they enter the building and class before leaving the premises. See our policies on the website for more information.
Monthly Tuition Reminder: Tuition runs on the 1st of the month. If you would like to pay via cash or a different card pay at the desk prior to the 1st. Your child will be dropped from the class for non-payment on the 5th of the month.
Inclement Weather - As “Texas Winter” can be unpredictable, we are anticipating some cold days ahead of us. Keep updated for our weather notifications via our website, Facebook page, Instagram, Email and/or Text. We want to put the safety of our families and coaches first. Makeup tokens will be given at our discretion.
Super Saturday is January 21st! Join us for our annual “JAMMIES IN JANUARY” from 6-10 P.M. Wear your cozy pj’s bring a blanket/pillow and come enjoy the night filled with fun. We will have movies, games, popcorn, and dinner. Pricing: $25 for the first child, $20 for each additional child. You will sign-up via your account under “camps”.

Annual Membership Fee Reminder: If it is the month of your yearly anniversary with Irving Gymnastics, your annual membership fee will renew on the 15th of the month with the card on file. (Example: I signed up my kids in January 2022; I will pay my annual registration fee for 2023 on the 15th of this month.)
Missed Classes: Every time your child is absent, a makeup token will appear in your account at the end of the night of the missed class. To use a makeup token, you must log in to your account and schedule your class through the online portal. You MUST be enrolled in at least one class to use makeup tokens and there will be a maximum of 4 tokens issued per month.
Hair Ties: We are down to our last hair ties! We they are easy to forget, and we’d hate not to have one for you! If your child is prone to needing hair ties, consider picking up an extra package at the dollar store to donate to the desk. We give out approximately 5 hair ties a night.
Pro Shop Items: We are happy to announce our glittery hoodies, sweatshirts and t-shirts are back! Pick up your Irving Gymnastics swag in our Pro Shop at the concession stand!
Fire Safety: When watching your children, you must remain seated in the bleachers, chairs/stools, or couches. Fire Code requires the hallways to remain clear so please no standing in those areas. No person other than coaches and gymnasts are allowed in the gymnastic areas beyond the black curtains.
Dressed Correctly: Please make sure your child has their hair pulled back out of their face. There should be no jewelry. Gymnasts should wear a leotard with no skirt. Ninja classes or boys will wear a Ninja World t-shirt.
