Observation

1. No parents or siblings allowed in any gymnastics area.

2. Observers are welcome at any time. Preschool parents please use good judgment. If your child is being distracted by your presence, it might be best not to watch the class. You must remain in the building.

3. Please remain quietly in the designated viewing areas while observing. Keep other siblings with you. Please do not loiter on the stairs.

4. Please do not talk to your child while he/she is in class.

6. Absolutely no sitting or climbing on viewing area barriers.

Advancement

1. Every student should feel challenged. Students are moved up when they have mastered the skills at their level. Move up skill requirements for each level are posted on the bulletin board. All students must be tested and approved by a senior instructor before moving to the next level. When your child is ready, his/her instructor will recommend arranging a test. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress with his/her instructor.
