Gym Policies

Safety First, Last, and Always

Our goal is to teach your children gymnastics, climbing, and tumbling in a fun and safe environment. As part of our class instruction, we consistently educate your children about ways to be safe at our facility. It is important that parents also know these rules so you can support our efforts and help ensure a positive, enjoyable athletic experience.

Proper Attire

  • Students should have a bag in which to keep their shoes, outerwear, water bottle etc. which will be stored in cubbys during class.
  • Girls must have their hair pulled back away from their face. Hair clips, jewelry, headbands, and bows are not allowed.
  • Girls should wear a leotard or a t-shirt with shorts or sweatpants.
  • Boys should wear a t-shirt with shorts or sweatpants.
  • No socks are allowed in the gym. Bare feet only.

Before Class

  • Encourage your child to use the bathroom before coming to the gym.
  • Speak to your child about listening to the instructor and following directions.
  • Plan on arriving no more than five minutes early for class.
  • Students ages 6 and up are dopped off at the front door no more than 5 minutes before class (seated on the passenger side for a quick & safe exit). Athletes will meet their coach at the gym door.
  • Parents of children 5 years and younger should walk their child(ren) into the Lobby no more than 5 minutes before the start of class. Athletes will meet their coach at the gym door.
  • Please remind your children put their shoes/boots, outerwear, water bottle etc. in a cubby before entering the gym.
  • If your child is not feeling well, please stay home. We offer a flexible make-up policy which allows 2 make-up classes to be scheduled within the session.

During Class

  • Children are not allowed to use the gym equipment before class.
  • Children need to look carefully before crossing in front of other groups in the gym.
  • Children must listen to the teacher during class, follow all safety rules, and treat peers and staff with respect.
  • Children should let the instructor know if they are unwell, need to get a drink, or need to use the bathroom.
  • While you’re welcome to watch your child’s class at any time, we would prefer you follow the drop-off/pick up procedures as space is very limited in our Lobby.

After Class

  • Please arrive for Pickup in the Lobby no more than 10 minutes before the end of class. Coaches will dismiss athletes to their adults.
  • Children must not be left unattended after class and are unable to leave Exxcel without an adult.
  • If you are running late, please call the office. The staff will have your child await your arrival in the office. Tell your child about this procedure in the event you are unable to notify the office.

Thank you for your support.
