The Fall gymnastics session is ready to begin. The classes are Mondays from Sept 10- Dec 10, 2018. There is no class scheduled on September 24th or October 8 (Thanksgiving). There are a total of 12 classes with the final class being a recital. Parents are invited to stay only during recital class on the last week.

The total cost for the 12 week session for classes 1,2,3 is $70. Total cost for class 4 is $125. Payment can be made the day of the first class in cash or chèque made out to the St. Adolphe Community Club. There will be a $5 late fee applied per week, per child for each week the payment is late.
If this is your first time registering, it is important to know that all classes except the recital are parents and spectator free. Families are welcome to wait outside the room or down stairs. On the last class, kids are encouraged to bring whomever they wish!

Participants are asked to have used the washroom prior to the start of class. Please help us by having them go before they start!

Please note, class times are subject to change depending on enrolment rate (eg. not enough participants may require that classes need to be combined. This will be determined by the first class.)

Housekeeping:

-Please make sure that your child wears clothing that allows him or her to move freely. Jeans are not acceptable attire for class. Also please avoid long pants as the children tend to trip on them.

-Please ensure that all jewellery is removed prior to class and that longhair is tied up. Stud earrings are fine.

-Barefoot is best.

-Class goes by very quickly. We can get a lot more done when we can get down to business! You can help by making sure that your child arrives wearing their gymnastics attire, bringing a bottle of water, and having used the bathroom prior to class.

-If you know that your child will be missing a class, please let me know.

-Please consider labelling your children’s clothing and footwear. Last year we had some mixups with the wrong clothing / footwear was taken home after class.

-Parents are welcome to wait on the main floor lobby during class or come back after it is finished.

-The first day is always quite busy. If you have any questions I can help with prior to the start of the session, I would be happy to help.

-If this is your first session, classes take place on the second floor of the skating rink. Because it is a community Center, we do not have sprung floors or the standard gymnastics structures, just portable, mini equipment. We use mats on the hardwood floor. Classes of all levels have a strong focus on team work, turn taking, gross motor control, strength and flexibility.
