While In The Gym

STARTING CLASS

While your child waits for his/her class, they must be waiting in the designated wait area for classes.  This is along the wall next to the restrooms.  When it is time for their class to start, coaches will take attendance and bring their class out to start class.  It is important for you athlete to arrive on time so they can properly warm-up and stretch before class.  If they are late, please make sure that you check in at the front desk.

 
GYMNASTICS ATTIRE
Clothing must be free of zippers and buttons.  Long hair must be pulled back and secured.

We prefer feet and legs to be bare but if you would like your child to wear pants please be sure they are tight fitting.

 
SEATING/VIEWING

The observation area in the gym is small and limited.  All American Gymnastics encourages family and friends to observe their children during class time, however there are a few rules we would like you to follow in order for all classes to be safe and task-oriented. 


We ask all observers to watch from the designated area—this area is at the front of our gym and is the only seating and viewing area for spectators.   

The instructors are well trained to teach gymnastics.  Please refrain from coaching your child from the sidelines.


During your observation time it is crucial that siblings or other children that accompany you are kept under supervision at all times.  

Please do not allow children to play on equipment.

Please keep children from sitting or climbing on the cubbies and the fencing.


LEVEL ADVANCEMENT

Our levels are based on skills and are split in that fashion in order to accommodate the teachers. The closer the skill levels of the students, the easier it is to plan for each lesson, resulting in better managed and more fun classes. Please keep in mind that not all children are the same and that everyone will learn and advance at a different rate.
