Attending your first class
When you first join one of our recreational classes children should dress in appropriate sports clothing
(t-shirt, leggins, shorts) unless they already own a leotard which they should wear to their class. All children work
in bare feet. All jewelry should be removed, including earings and bracelets of any kind. After a couple of weeks
we expect the children to be in the correct uniform; which for girls is a blue club leotard and for boys a black leotard and
blue shorts (these are available directly from us; please ask). Children may wear leggins or shorts over the top of
their leotard if they wish.
Please arrive changed for your session as we do not have changing facilities available
At no time should you change in the school reception area; the school is
a working environment and we have been requested by the school to tell all our members not to use the reception area as a
changing facility - there is a toilet available if you do need to change as a one-off, but we request that all children arrived
changed, ready for their session.
should bring a drink of water with them to the session.
All children should be dropped
off and picked up directly by yourselves. They are not permitted to leave the gym without seeing a parent/friend who
they know is taking them home. Please come to the door to collect them personally. If for any reason the named
parent/guardian is not going to be collecting you must inform the coach at the start of the session. Please also ensure
that your child knows who they are going home with.
Unfortunately we do not have space
in the hall for you to stay and watch during the sessions, you can however watch through the window in the door.
If you do have other children with you please keep them under control in the school reception
area. Please do not let them run around, stand on the seats etc.
