Parents attendance at training
Parents generally are not allowed to be present during the training. Parents sitting in the gym distract attention of their own and other children. It makes much more difficult for the coach to conduct the class.
The Club will be offering open lessons for the parents who would like to see their child at training once a term.
Parents are advised to enter the waiting area no earlier than 10 minutes before the scheduled end of the training.
Should the temperature reach 36 degrees Celsius, as reported at 1pm on the Bureau of Meteorology website for the Melbourne Metropolitan area (http://www.bom.gov.au/vic/observations/melbourne.shtml), any afternoon training will be cancelled for health & safety reasons.
A notification about cancelled training will be sent ASAP on the Facebook page of the club. Any classes cancelled for this reason can be replaced with another class (replacement session to be taken before the end of the term). To apply for a replacement class please talk to the office. No refund will be provided for missed class due to high temperature.
From time to time, the Club takes photos of its gymnasts during training, at competitions or at special events. These images are used for the Club website and social media (Facebook & Instagram). The Club respects the health and wellbeing of its members, and as such will exclude images that may be deemed offensive or unflattering.
Should you wish your daughter not to appear on our images, please notify us in writing within 2 weeks of starting at the Club or 2 weeks from the start of the year.
