How to prepare your child for classes.
Classes require proper attire and hair support to encourage and facilitate safety, proper training and fun. All girl-students are encouraged, if a leotard is not accessible, to wear form-fitted tops and bottoms. Spotting and instructional assistance will require no baggy clothing. (Boys- Form fitted shirts and soft shorts will suffice.) The students will be hanging and standing upside down and inverting themselves to achieve and train in the sport of gymnastics. Loose clothing can be uncomfortable, hinder skill and movement, and possibly be dangerous. No shoes are required. Hair should be tied up, if long, and out of the face. Please only soft hair ties. Absolutely no jewelry. Stud ear piercings are allowed. No candy, gum, food, or flavored drinks allowed in class. Cell phones will be collected at the front desk and returned upon class dismissal. Thank you for helping us stay safe so maximum fun and maximum training may proceed.
