WHY GYMNASTICS?

Gymnastics is the ideal sport for all ages. This is also true for boys! Children can learn in a safe environment with quality instruction and equipment. It combines strength and flexibility, develops coordination, and enhances gross motor skills unlike any other sport. Building self-esteem, children learn to follow directions in a structured, disciplined, and fun environment. These are important qualities essential for life. No matter how long you are in the program, the benefits carry beyond the gym!

LOOKING TO PARTICIPATE?

Looking to participate in a sport that requires skill, strength, flexibility, and the desire to compete individually as well as part of a team?  Whatever level you compete at, gymnastics can enhance your life by improving strength and coordination.

Whether you are looking to participate casually in our recreational classes or competitively with one of our teams, you'll find our organization to be a great place to learn new skills and meet new friends.

HOW DO I REGISTER MY CHILD IN A GYMNASTICS CLASS?

The best way to register a new or returning gymnast in a class is to click on the link on our home page labeled REGISTER.  This link will prompt you to create a parent portal and register your child for a class from there.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT CLASS IS BEST FOR MY CHILD?

Our classes are designed taking both age and skill under consideration. Class options can be determined based on age, but we also offer a free, one-on-one evaluation with a coach to help ensure your child is in the appropriate gymnastics class.  If you have questions about which class to register for, please feel free to email us at gymnastgmg@yahoo.com.

 

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE FOR?

Our membership fee is due annually, beginning the month you start.  Membership fees are a program-wide cost and help ensure the safety of your gymnast/s in our program. Membership fees are discounted for multi-gymnast families, and also give members discounts on Birthday Parties and Friday Night Fun Night.

 

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR TO CLASS?

Leotards are, of course, acceptable attire for any gymnast. Leotards can be purchased from any store and don’t need to be designed specifically for gymnastics (ex. dance leotards are okay). There are leotards for sale at the gym as well.  Gymnasts can wear tighter fitting clothing, such as  shorts, leggings, tank tops, or tees, if preferred. For the safety of gymnasts and coaches, we prefer clothing that isn’t loose.  As gymnasts begin more difficult skills and enter higher level classes, leotards are strongly encouraged. 

 

WHO DO I TALK TO IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT MY CHILD OR HIS OR HER CLASS?

During busy hours at the gym, a staff member will be at the main desk before, after, or during classes and can help answer any questions or pass questions along to a coach who can best help you! You can also approach a coach before or after a class, being mindful of other classes he or she may be needing to coach.  Calling or emailing the gym is also an option. We strive to provide the best communication we can with you and your gymnast.

 

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO MAKE A PAYMENT OR WHERE TO PUT MY PAYMENT?

We take pride in providing flexibility for payments throughout a session. Families are able to choose to pay every four weeks, the session in full, or other options suitable for your family. 

When you registered your child, you should have set up a parent portal so you can see what you owe and make payments online.

We still accept cash and checks!  Please put all paper payments in the black payment box at the desk before the scheduled payment due date.

 

CAN I STAY AND WATCH MY GYMNAST?

Yes! We support a philosophy that parents should be able to see what they are investing in and watch their child learn and grow. Seating is limited, but parents are always welcome to watch a class.  With that being said, please be mindful of causing a distraction or ‘coaching your gymnast from the sideline.’ In order to experience the best learning environment, gymnasts should be focused on their skills and coach feedback. Parents are welcome to drop off and pick up gymnasts as well, as long as it is appropriate for their child. 

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD SHOULD CHANGE CLASSES?

Changing classes usually happens at the beginning of a session, with some exceptions.  If coaches feel like your child should change classes, we will contact you. We do our best to consider skill, attitude, and effort to make sure your child is in the best gymnastics class for him or her. Parents are welcome to ask questions about a child’s class, but we will typically instigate conversation if movement to a new class is suggested!
