Frequently Asked Questions
What should my child wear to class?
A: Please make sure your child is properly dressed for class. In gymnastics classes, we recommend girls wear a body leotard (without an attached skirt) and barefoot, unless for health reasons you need to wear exercise shoes or non-slip socks. Shorts are allowed, but no tights. We recommend boys wear a T-shirt tucked into stretch pants or elastic waist shorts, and the required gymnastics shoes if needed. Students should not wear clothes with any buckles, belts, or zippers. We focus on safety and cleanliness at Pulsars. For numerous safety reasons we cannot allow high ear piercing, exposed belly button rings, eyebrow rings, or any jewellery. Hair should be pulled away from the face into a ponytail with an elastic band. We do allow hair clips for stray hairs, flat barrettes, or other similar attached hair accessories. No headband, hair glitter, gel, spray-on hair color, or excessively oily hair products. Again, this is for your child’s safety. These products tend to get on the mats when tumbling and could cause someone to slip and fall. Hair products also hinder the maintenance of our mats and keeping them clean.
Can I stay and watch my child in class?
Of course you can, we love our parents to stay! You’re welcome to observe your child in our glassed-in parent viewing area, with closed circuit tv that allows you to observe the trampoline and beam areas. The upstairs observation area, is also available. Both areas include tables & chairs, crayons, and coloring books for siblings. We request that parents do not leave their children unattended. This is for safety and to avoid embarrassing both the parent and the child.
