Commonly Asked Questions

1. What should my child wear to class?  Something that is comfortable that they can move freely in.  Shorts & t-shirts are fine (no baggy shorts or shirts please).  The little girls like to wear  leotards, but they are not required.  Please do not allow your child to wear jeans to class.    We also ask that children with long hair wear it up pulled up back out of their face & no jewelry should be worn.

5.  What is your make up policy?  Children who miss a class during a regular class session will be allowed  to attend one open gym session at no cost.  Please ask at the desk for a pass to attend an open gym session. 

6Where do we check in for classes?  Once you have registered your child for a class, you will enter the Gymnastics Center & proceed to our counter/desk in the facility.  There you will find laminated sheets with the title of your child’s class & name tags for each child.  Find your child’s name tag & place it on your child’s chest where our instructors can see it.  Then you can sit on  the bleachers until it’s your child’s class time.  Our instructors will take attendance during the  warm up period.

7.  How do I know when it’s OK for my child to enter the activity space for class?  Our instructors will  call out the classes by class title at the start of the class time & your child will line up by  the “snake” on the wall & then follow the instructors out to the activity floor for warm-up & stretching.
*All classes have a short warm up period/stretching period as a large group & then break off into their separate classes.  

8.  Do you offer a discount?  Yes, if more than one child in the same family registers for a class or  a child is registered for more than one class in the same session, you qualify for a $5 discount  on the 2nd child or 2nd class.  You must register in person or by phone to receive discount.  The discount is not available with on-line registration.
