Appreciate the Risk
Participation in gymnastics, even under the best conditions, carries with it a reasonable assumption of risk. Appreciate the fact that improper conduct of this activity can result in catastrophic injury, paralysis or even death.
Every gymnastics session should always be supervised by a competent professional. Never participate in gymnastics without proper supervision.
Always dress in terms of the learning/performing situation. Use chalk, handgrips, tape, etc., where appropriate. When in doubt, consult your instructor.
Establish a clear, accurate communicative link with your coach. Make certain that both of you know exactly what, when, where, how and why the skill is to be performed and/or spotted.
Be Prepared to Participate
Be sure that you are physically, as well as psychologically, ready to perform. Total fitness is a fundamental prerequisite to safe practices in gymnastics.
Master Basic Skills First
Follow a definite progressive pattern in skill learning. Master first those basic skills that have the broadest application to the more complex skills.
Know the Skill
Be sure to have an accurate visual concept of the full potential of the skill. Know how to initiate, execute, and complete the entire movement. Develop an awareness for the more critical aspects of each skill.
Always Follow Through
Once you commit to and/or go for skill, always follow through to its full completion. Be keenly aware that a prime consideration is protection of your head and spinal column.
Know Your Limitations
Develop a healthy awareness and respect for your individual limitations in learning and performing gymnastics.
Dropping Your Class
How does my child drop a class?
You can pick up a drop form in the office. If you are dropping a class (with reoccurring monthly tuition) it must be done before the draft on the 5th of the month. If you drop a class after the draft that month you will not receive credits and/or refunds for the remaining classes. As always, your registration fee is still good until August so if they wish to re-enroll, simply submit a request online or give us a call.
