FAQ

What to wear:
Unless otherwise instructed, all gymnasts wear comfortable clothe –sweat top and pants, t-shirt and shorts, etc.   Running shoes for toddlers should be fine as long as they are not worn outside.   Gymnastics slippers for “gym bees” and older are the best. You can buy them at any dance store. The one we deal with is Second Skin Fashion at Yonge and Royal Orchard. 905-731-2629. Mention you are a member of Toronto Aspirals, they may give you a good deal.  Boys can wear socks or go barefoot.  Girls' hair must be neatly tied up in a ponytail.

What not to wear:
Jewelry, bracelets, earrings (studs are fine), etc. of any sort or anything that may obstruct vision, movement or present danger to the child or equipment.  No street shoes in the gymnasium or in change rooms.

What should a parent wear in the toddler's class:
Comfortable clothing, athletic socks, no outdoors wears. Preferably no jewelry, hanging necklace or bracelets, heavy wrist watch-anything that may hurt you or a child or obstruct movements.

Can we bring snack to the gym?
No food of any sort is allowed in the gymnasium or change rooms.   You can (and encouraged) to bring bottled water to the gym.   Please mark your child's name on it (as everyone else has same looking bottles) or if your child can write her/his name we have stickers at the “water station” in the gym.   Please take your water bottle with you when leaving gym area.   Please empty water bottles before depositing them into garbage bins.

Tip.  As kids drink very little, do not give them big bottles.   Best are small containers which you can take home and fill out for next class.

It is not recommended to drink sweet juice during workout time as it makes kids thirsty.
