Discipline

In the event that a gymnast is not being respectful, not participating, is late, is being disruptive in class or is interfering with the coach, or the other gymnast(s) during class the following course of action will be taken:
    • 1st Time: A verbal warning will be given to stop the action.
    • 2nd Time: A verbal warning will be given and the gymnast may be asked to sit out for 5 minutes.
    • 3rd Time: If a gymnast doesn't stop the poor behaviour he/she will be asked to sit out for the rest of the class.
      In the event that the gymnast continues the behaviour in subsequent classes, the coach will discuss the matter with the gymnast's parent(s) at which point it will be determined if the gymnast will continue to be a member of the club.
  2. When registering, parents must notify club's administration if the child has behaviour/focusing/learning issues.

Photos and videos may be taken of your child only during an open class at the end of each session. Photos of other children may not be taken, unless you have explicit permission from their parents. This also applies to group photos.
