WHAT TO EXPECT 

During your child’s scheduled class we do not permit parents in the gym. (Unless you are participating in our tot program) Gymnasts will enter through the main double doors to the gym, and exit through the side door to the hallway. Gymnasts will only leave the gymnasium with an instructor for bathroom purposes. Remember to wait in the hallway until classes are invited in. All gymnasts will begin stretching together, then are divided into their designated classes. 

OBSERVATION DAYS 

We will invite all parents, family and friends in the gym for observation days twice during the session.  Observation dates will be provided for the current session. Participants will be presented with an award at the last class.  Bring your cameras!

BEHAVIOR POLICY

A positive behavior system is used by instructors to reward participants who demonstrate appropriate behaviors. Participants who demonstrate positive behaviors during class are rewarded with a stamp at the end of class. However, if negative behavior is demonstrated during class, he/she will be given a warning.  If a child receives 3 or more warnings during class,  he/she will not rewarded with a stamp at the end of class.  Additionally, if a student continues to demonstrate negative behaviors after receiving 3 warnings, he/she will be asked to take a time-out from class.  Continued negative behavior will result in a parent conference.
