FAQ and Policies
Yes. Coaches can assist your child on any activities that you may have trouble helping them with due to your pregnancy. Please be sure to take extra caution when walking on various surfaces and equipment in the gym if pregnant.
Yes. If you have a newborn, you can use a car seat to bring the baby into the gym and place it near by the activities you are participating in, or many will also bring their newborn in a sling or carrier to keep their hands free for the child taking part in the class. Our coaches will be available for any additional help that you may need. Feel free to also bring another person (i.e. friend or family member) with you to the class to either supervise the newborn while you participate in the class with your child, or to take your child through their activities!
Yes. This class is designed for any 3 year old child to prepare them for our Kindergym, and Advanced Kindergym classes.
If a child will not participate in any part of the class without help from the parent after the first couple of weeks, we often recommend trying the Parent and Tot class. This will allow the child to get used to the coaches, the atmosphere of the gym, the equipment and activities with their parent, before trying the class on their own. We can always swap a child into a different class, as long as there is still space available.
Our Jr. Kindergym class allows parents to be in the gym for the first few weeks of the session to allow the child to get comfortable with the new environment. If parents are going into the gym with their child in Jr. Kindergym they are encouraged to stand back and let our coaches have the “leader” role. In our Kindergym class, parents are not permitted in the gym. They can watch from our viewing area upstairs, or from our lobby.
No. The children enrolled in this class are not expected to have advanced skills. The class is for a higher age group than the Kindergym, but not a higher skill level. They will still focus on the same activities that they do in the Kindergym class with a higher expectation on listening, and following instructions.
Advanced Kindergym athlete’s are slightly older than Kindergym athletes. The expectation for listening and following instructions is slightly higher because of their age, and because the majority of these children have been in school at least part time or full time. Advanced Kindergym begins to focus more on body awareness and the different body shapes and fine motor skills that are involved in basic gymnastics skills.
Advanced Kindergym involves 4 circuits set up in the gym using various equipment for a variety of activities. The main focus is on gross motor skills, and also introduces fine motor skills important for gymnastics. Class 1 is the first class in which athletes will go to each gymnastics apparatus individually. For girls this includes Vault, Beam, Bars, Floor and Trampoline and for boys this includes, Vault, Bars, Floor, Parallel Bars, Pommel Horse, Rings and Trampoline. Athletes will work to further enhance fine motor skills with a stronger focus on body shapes.
