Policies and Procedures

Classes

  • It is extremely important to be on time to class. If your child is more than 15 minutes late and misses warm-ups or stretching they will not be allowed into a class. 
  • Because gymnastics is a progressive sport, missing classes may cause your child to fall behind. 
  • Classes offered are for children ages 3 through High School, ranging from beginner to advanced.
  • All children must be fully potty trained.(NO Pull-ups)
  • There must be a minimum of four students or the class will be discontinued.
  • Ratios for Preschool Classes are 6:1 and for Recreational Level Classes are 8:1.
  • Class days will be chosen by the largest number of registrants. If there are not enough to fill one class (i.e. beginner & intermediate) will be combined.
  • Class schedules are subject to change, and classes may be added as necessary.
  • Parents are asked not to talk to students while in class or try to coach from the bleachers. Your coach will be available after class to speak to you about your childs progress or any other concerns you may have. 
  • Please make sure your child has gone to the bathroom before class to minimize thier time out of class. 
  • Your child must be able to stay in a class without any parent participation. If they become a distraction to the other gymnast in thier class they will be removed from the program until they can participate accordingly.
