Participants should dress appropriately for physical activity, shorts and t-shirt are perfect, leggings and tracksuit bottoms are also acceptable. Denim, dresses, skirts or clothing with buttons are not appropriate as they can be restrictive to movement and get caught up in equipment. Please ensure that long hair is tied back, with no hard hair bands. No jewellery is allowed. All gymnasts must have bare feet (no socks) to ensure that the risk of slipping is minimised. Trampoline classes do require socks to be worn while on the trampoline at all times. Do I need to stay with my child? KinderGym classes require a parent/guardian to participate in the session. Preschool classes require a parent/guardian to remain within the centre but are not permitted to stay in the gym hall School aged sessions do not require a parent/guardian to stay within the facility but emergency contact details MUST be correct at reception. x How do I pay? Before your space is reserved you must pay the centre that your class takes place. This can be paid at the reception desk or over the phone. Classes are to be paid in a block booking. x I want to coach Coaching is a great way to express your passion for sport and physical activity.
