Gymnastics Frequently Asked Questions

When should I register?

Classes fill extremely quickly. Plan to register for class on the day registration opens. See above for exact dates.

What level should my child be in?

All athletes age 6 and older without prior gymnastics experience should start in Level 1. Athletes will be evaluated each session to determine the appropriate level placement for the following session.

What should my child wear to class?

Students should wear tighter-fitting clothing; leotards are preferred. Absolutely no socks, footed tights, clothing with buttons or zippers, or jewelry allowed on the apparatus. Hair should be tied back and out of the face for safety reasons.

Can parents stay to watch?

Parents are welcome to stay to watch both our Mini and Youth Programs.
