First Class: What to Expect

First Day Info….
We are proud to offer fun recreational gymnastics classes in new Phase II expansion.  To access the recreational class entrance, come to the centre (4130 101 Street), but instead of entering through our Phase I doors, head two bays to the north (right) and enter through our public, Phase II entrance.

Our main focus in providing recreational gymnastics classes is to ensure that the classes are fun for all gymnasts while being active and safe.

  1. Please observe the classes from the viewing area. To ensure your child’s safety, please refrain from speaking to your child while they are in class.
  2. For the safety of your child, please remain with them until they are on the gym floor with their coach. As well, help your child learn who their coach is, and their name.
  3. Please do your best to be on time for all classes. Also, please ensure prompt pickup. Many of our classes run back to back, so it can get congested in the front foyer area. We thank you for doing your part to cut down on this congestion.
  4. Please remember that although our coaches are often young, they are fully certified and are well qualified. All employees have First-Aid and CPR training and First-Aid and AED stations are located throughout the gym and office areas.

Please note the following to ensure that you and your children are well prepared for your class.

Arriving
Please be on time for all classes to ensure that the gymnasts have a proper warm-up at the beginning of each class.

Jackets and bags must be hung in the boot room, and shoes stored on the shelves in the front entrance.

For safety reasons children should wait on the benches until their coach begins the class. Please be careful to keep your children off the equipment before the class begins to ensure their safety.
