New REC Gymnast Class Information

New to WGA and starting class soon? We are so excited to have you! Below you’ll find some helpful and insightful class information so you & your gymnast are ready for your first day at WGA!

  • Your gymnast will be barefoot the entire class (no socks ever, please). There is a place in our back hallway with white cubbies to put his/her shoes and socks/belongings in when you arrive. That is the same area that your gymnast will wait before this class & each class with you or another parent/guardian for the coaches to get them.
  • The coaches will take roll, so no need to check in to the front desk- just go ahead and walk back the long hallway to the white cubby area with your gymnast! They will be let out of class at that area as well.
  • No jewelry. If your gymnast has newly pierced ears and can not remove their studs for the duration of the class, please use a band-aid or athletic tape to cover the earrings & alert your coach. ANY JEWELRY REMOVED AT WGA AND MISPLACED IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF WGA as we expect all gymnasts to arrive sans jewelry.
  • Hair must be up and out of the face every class.
  • Dress code for females is a leotard or unitard for every class (Scheels, Target, Amazon, etc). If your gymnast can not get a leotard or “leo” in time for their first class, any tighter workout clothes will suffice, ie- bike shorts/leggings with a tighter fitting tank top or t-shirt. Nothing flowy or baggy for safety reasons, and midriff bearing attire is prohibited (no bikini tops/sports bras worn as tops). For our male preschool gymnasts, any type of athletic wear will be adequate.
  • Please send your athlete with a water bottle each class as we try to limit the amount of touches to the public drinking fountain due to COVID precautions.
  • Please do not arrive earlier than 15 minutes prior to class starting. 5 minutes before the start of class is preferred.
  • We have an upstairs observation room for your viewing pleasure! Parents of potty-trained gymnasts are permitted to drop their athletes off instead of staying the whole class. We ask that you HAVE YOUR CELL PHONE AVAILABLE AND ON YOU THE ENTIRE CLASS DURATION, and that you physically walk your gymnast inside to wait with him/her until the start of class, and then walk back into WGA and pick your gymnast up from the cubby area when class lets out as well. No minor children are permitted to go outside unaccompanied. (Important to note: the parent viewing room is small and can get crowded from time to time. We do not monitor social distancing, elective mask wearing, vaccination status etc. so please note entering this area is AT YOUR OWN RISK.) Siblings and other minor children not enrolled in a class need to be accompanied by an adult at all times, and may not roam our halls or use our outside play areas as our preschool/daycare is in session. There are no pets or animals permitted in this viewing room or any part of WGA: OTHER THAN SERVICE ANIMALS ONLY.
  • If your gymnast is NOT POTTY-TRAINED, a parent or guardian MUST STAY IN THE PARENT VIEWING ROOM the entire class, in case a coach needs to call on you for assistance.
  • PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILD VISIT THE RESTROOM PRIOR TO CLASS STARTING! Kindly also make sure you speak with your gymnast about the importance of asking his or her coach before they visit the restroom, so our coaches can account for all gymnasts, at all times. WGA prohibits all minor children from leaving where their class is for any reason (restroom, water break, band-aid, finding their parent/guardian etc etc) without their coaches knowing.
  • WGA prohibits any vehicles from staying parked in the drive-up lane/horseshoe by our main or side entrances. You MUST park if you are waiting. Please help us to adhere to the laws set in accordance with Fire Lanes as well as being respectful to our other families by not blocking traffic.
