Gymnastics & Cheerleading Classes
The Fall 2019 gymnastics session is ready to begin. Classes will take place for 11 weeks on Monday evenings, beginning on September 16 and running until December 9th. There is no class scheduled on Thanksgiving or on October 21st as the hall is being used for the election. There WILL be class on the evening of Remembrance Day . There will be a total of tens classes and the last night will be the recital. The recital will take place at 7 o’clock on December 9 and is open to all who wish to attend. Juice, tea and coffee will be provided. More information will follow in November. The recital is the only class in which spectators or parents are permitted to observe.
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.)

-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.
To sign up please email the coach directly firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name, age, and the class you are requesting.
Spaces are limited. Register early to guarantee your spaces are saved.
As always, the spaces are first come, first served. Feel free to forward this information to others who may be interested.
