Rules & Safety Guidlines

Safety is our number one priority. We have put together a set of guidelines to create a safe environment for our gymnasts and their families. Please take the time to read through them before your/ your child's first class.

Drop off/ Pick up

  • Drop off is at the Little Stars club reception area/ front door of the hall. Students should arrive to class on time. Participation in the warm-up at the start of class is compulsory; it is one of the most important aspects of any physical activity. In gymnastics a lot of emphasis is placed on flexibility and strength and participating in a good warm-up is essential to prepare the body for exercise and safeguard muscles from injury.
     

  • Children can only attend the class/es that they have been enrolled in at the time of registration. Classes are designed according to age and skill level, attending the right level/ age group will help your child gain maximum benefit.
     

  • If you have arrived early, please allow the team to check your child's have a seat in the waiting area until the team is ready to start your  child's class. It is strictly forbidden children to run around the gym, use any apparatus unattended or walk into the training area without coach guidance).
     

  • A spacious waiting area is available in the main rotunda of the AFOC premises for you to wait for the duration of your child's class. If you choose to leave the premises during your child's session, please insure that you arrive for pick up 10-15 minutes prior to the end of your child's class. Prompt pick up of your child will help insure that later classes are not interrupted and continue to run on schedule. Pick up is from the hall back door.
     

  • Children cannot leave the AFOC premises unattended. A parent/ guardian must collect them from the premises complex.
