Gymnasticals FAQs

General Information

At what age can my child start gymnastics classes?

Our classes start at 4.5years and run to 14 years of age. Our classes are instructional so young children should be ready to follow instructions for the length of the class.

How are classes typically run?

All of our classes begin with a running and then stretch warm-up. During this time, students will learn basic body positions and drills which make up the building blocks of gymnastics and help them to understand how to perform skills properly later in the session.

Students will then practice various floor elements as a group, and/or will rotate through 3-4 different stations. During this time the children will review skills learned in previous weeks and will be introduced to new skills.

We always finish with a line up and sum-up. We strive on making our classes upbeat and fun.

Can parents stay and watch or come into the gym?

At our Maienmatt and Hoffmatt locations, there are viewing galleries raised away from the gym area. Parents are welcome to watch there. We do ask you not to call out to your child during the session.

At our Shui Zhu Do and Dirty Hands Venue, we are unable to cater for parents to watch on a regular basis, as there is no viewing area and we find that children actually concentrate better without their parents there in these locations. If you would like to view a one-off session, please make the arrangement directly with the coach.

At the start of a new term some younger children may need a little bit of settling in from their parents. If necessary, we would suggest to come in for the first 10mins to settle them in then wait outside.

There will be an opportunity to watch the students display at the end of the course. We will e-mail you a few weeks before the event with details.

What should students bring to the class?

To each session students should bring, just their spirit for gymnastics, their leotards or gym clothes and a bottle of water!

Please leave the bottle of water just by the door on the inside of the gym.

What is the proper attire for the gymnastics class?

We recommend girls wear a leotard. The boys must wear loose fitting shorts and T-shirt with no buttons, buckles or zippers. Students should participate in bare feet.

Long hair must be tied up neatly in a low ponytail or bunches. This is so not to obstructs vision and prevent hurting the back of their head when doing rolls.

Jewellery of any kind is not allowed in the gym. It can be dangerous to students, instructors and can damage the equipment.

Do you have a uniform?

Yes, we have Gymnasticals leotards and Gymnasticals boys uniform for purchase. We encourage you to buy these uniforms to create a team spirit and unity within the groups.

Please e-mail info@gymnasticals.com for more details and to order.

What are the RULES for the gymnastics class?
  1. Please be on time for class. This is extremely important. We do warm-ups, take the register, cover safety rules and explain special announcements.
  2. Regular attendance is important – Gymnastics is a progressive sport; missing classes may cause your child to fall behind the rest of the class.
  3. Children who are in the venue but not participating in classes must be under the direct care of an adult at all times. We are unable to babysit children that are not in the class.
  4. Only participants under the direct supervision of a coach may enter the gymnastics area. All other children are asked to refrain from using any gymnastics equipment.
  5. Students are not allowed on any of the equipment before or after their class unless supervised by a coach.
  6. Parents are asked not to converse with the students while the class is taking place.
