This WELCOME pack is provided for parents to gain a greater understanding of the Prestige Circus & Gymnastics  Recreation programmes and the development of your children through gymnastics  and circus at recreation level.

What to wear:

For the safety of your child and the maintenance of equipment, no buckets, belts, buttons, zips or loose items should be on the gym garments. This is includes watches, fit bits and jewellery.

The best clothing for gymnastics is shorts, t-shirts, bike - shorts, tights and leotards.

Long hair should be tied up into pony-tails as these are better for rolling movements.

Start of Class:

The first five minutes of class is an active game with the groups all joining in together. These games help prepare the body for activity by increasing the heart rate and getting the blood pumping. After game, all of the groups will participate in a warm up, the coaches will take their groups on their first apparatus.

 

At any time there can be up to 3 classes in the gym, made up of beginners, intermediate /advanced. You will experience the feeling of the gym being particularly busy

Arrive on Time:

For safety and developmental reasons, all the classes include a warm-up component. Warm-up is a critical part of a gymnastics and circus programme, even for our pre-school classes. It is essential to ensure all participants are physically and mentally prepared for gymnastics and circus activities. Please ensure you on time so your child can get changed, use the toilet etc and be ready to go by the starting time.

No refunds or make-up classes will be offered.

Missed lessons:

Non - attendance of a lesson does not qualify a customer for a refund or credit against fees paid. Your session fee pays for your place in the class for the session, regardless of attendance. Our costs do not change if you miss a class and we are therefore not able to offer a reduction in fees for missed classes. As we keep strict ratios and class sizes, make up lessons are not possible.

Parent involvement 

For our Pre- school ( 4- 5 years ) parents are not required to come into the class, however we ask that you remain on the office area so you are on hand if your child need to use the toilets and /or needs comforting.

During the Class:

Each week the classes work on all apparatus ( floor, beam , bars, vault, tumble track, trampoline, silk, hoop, trapeze). Preschool work on all the gymnastics apparatus and each week the circus  apparatus rotate so that they will have covered all the apparatus . The tumbling classes work solely on trampoline, tumble track and floor and there is also a strength and conditioning component to the session. For the majority of time your children will be spread out into stations where they will rotate through a circuit. The coach will be stationed at the skill they are focusing on for the day, which will be the most challenging skill in the circuit. This allows the coach to ensure they are spending an even amount of time with each child and that are keeping the kids SAFE. The children take turns and learn to work independently at stations. Our coaches incorporate the three learning modalities into their teaching - auditory, visual and kinaesthetic - for example, listening to the coach, watching a demonstration of the skill and then attempting the skill with the coach assisting.

Observing:

Parents are welcome to stay and watch the class. We like parents to stay from time to time because you are your child’s biggest fan and they love you to see their new tricks. If you watch every week you are unlikely to observe much change, however by viewing occasionally you will be able to see the major achievements that have been accomplished. Please allow the coaches to make such corrections and behaviour modifications as they see necessary. The children work best if they are not distracted by parents calling out suggestions or instructions from the office area.
