All gymnastic classes will begin at the scheduled time so gymnasts gain the most from the coaching time provided. Warm ups are conducted for the first five minutes of each class.

Sessions include a warm-up, flexibility and strength programs. Missing or rushing any of these increases the risk of injury to the gymnast, therefore any gymnasts arriving late may be unable to participate in the class and will be requested to remain off the floor until the end of the class.
If a child needs to be collected early, please notify the coaching staff prior to the beginning of their class so appropriate workout alterations may be made for the gymnast to leave early.
