Can I pay in instalments?

Yes, you can pay your term fees in two instalments. The first invoice reminder will be emailed two weeks before the first day of term and the first instalment (half the term fee) must be paid on/before the first day of term. The second invoice reminder will be emailed at the beginning of week 5 and any outstanding fees must be paid by the end of week 11.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate weekly payments.

Do I need to stay with my child during their class?

Out Tiny Warriors and some of our GymABLE classes are coach-led and parent-assisted and will require a parent/guardian/carer/over 18 to accompany their gymnasts and be involved in the class.

Parents/guarding/carers typically do not need to stay for our other classes unless there are additional needs and assistance is required.

What should I wear for gymnastics?

Gymnasts should wear comfortable clothing during their class – leggings, joggers, shorts, t-shirts, leotard, etc.

Jeans, dress, skirts and cropped tops should not be worn.

Shoes will be removed on entry to the gym.

Club branded clothing (leotards, jackets, hoodies, etc) can be purchased in the gym. Please see our merchandise page for details of what is available.

Can my gymnast join the competitive squad?

Our coaches are always on the lookout for any gymnasts who show particular promise. If we think your child might be suitable for one of our competitive teams, we will get in touch with you to explain how it works and to guage your interest.
