Does my child require special clothing for gymnastics classes?
Your child can dress in comfortable clothing (t-shirts, shorts, etc.) for classes – nothing special is required.
Does my child require special footwear for gymnastics classes?
Children will be barefoot in the gym. If your child prefers not to go barefoot, or is unable to for health reasons, socks with grips are required.
In the event of inclement weather, will classes be cancelled?
Classes may be canceled in the event of poor road conditions or other hazardous weather circumstances.
If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, we will personally call each gymnastics participant, send a notification email and also update our Facebook page (to receive updates on Facebook, please “like” Go-Go Gymnastics). We will try our best to ensure this information is posted by 3pm on Fridays, and 730am on Saturdays and Sundays.
Are snacks and water bottles permitted?
If you plan to bring a snack for after your child’s class please make sure it is NUT-FREE. Although water fountains are available on-site, children are encouraged to bring their own water bottle.
Do I need to stay in the gym while my child is participating in class?
Parents are not permitted onto the gymnastics floor (other than Tumble Tot parents) due to safety reasons, but are welcome (but not required) to stay within our parent viewing area.
Am I allowed to take photos in the gym?
Parents are permitted to take photos in the gym but please always ask the Gym Coordinator for admittance to our gym floor.
What if my child misses a class?
If your child misses a class for whatever reason, feel free to make up the class during any of our other scheduled class times during the current term. Unfortunately, due to registration requirements by term, we cannot allow make up classes to roll into future terms. Therefore, please ensure that your child takes advantage of their make-up class opportunity during the current term that they are enrolled in.
Can I have more than one Tumble Tot with one parent on the floor?
For safety reasons, and to ensure that your little one is getting the absolute most from our specially designed classes, we do require one parent per child in our Tumble Tot classes.
How early should I arrive for classes?
We pride ourselves with our punctuality, and classes will always begin and end right on time. If you wish to arrive early, we ask that you arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your child’s class start time.
What if my child has never done gymnastics before?
No problem! We have specially designed lesson plans tailored for each child’s skill level. Whether they are new to the sport of gymnastics, or seasoned and want a recreational advancing experience, our coaches are equipped to teach all skill levels.
What are the class sizes?
We are proud to offer low child to coach ratio, with a goal of class size of 6 children per 1 coach.
Do many boys sign up for gymnastics?
Yes! Each class is different, but our overall registration ratio is about 50/50 for boys and girls.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Yes! Go-Go is proud to partner with KidSport, ProKids, and Jump Start for parents in need of financial assistance. For more information on these programs, check out their websites: (www.kidsportcanada.ca, www.prokidssj.ca, jumpstart.canadiantire.ca)
