Safety Guidelines

Everything that ensures your kid has a blast without any accidents.
Gymnastics is a sport where mastering movement is essential to experience the fullness of its joy and safety. We take every precaution to make sure no one hurts themselves while having fun.

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.

Be Supervised

Every gymnastics session should always be supervised by a competent professional. Never participate in gymnastics without proper supervision.

Dress Appropriately

Always dress in terms of the learning/performing situation. Use chalk, handgrips, tape, etc., where appropriate. When in doubt, consult your instructor.

Communicate Clearly

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 or send us an email. If you are dropping a class (with reoccurring monthly tuition) it must be done before the 5th of the month. If you drop a class after the 5th of that month you will not receive credits and/or refunds for the remaining classes in the current month. Send an email to theoffice@texaseastkids.com and include the child’s name, the class they are enrolled in and why they are dropping. 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.
