CLASS ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES

We follow the Victorian state school term dates only. Competition program participants may have an extended term. No classes are held on public holidays.

Starting:
Warm up is a critical part of all of our programs and is essential to ensuring all participants are physically and mentally prepared for their impending activity. Please ensure you arrive early to class and are dressed and ready well before starting time. When class is due to commence, a Gymsports staff member will call upon the students to come onto the floor area where a group warm up is performed. Children are then split into classes dependant on the mix of students which we have in the timeslot. For safety reasons parents are not permitted onto the sprung floors and equipment area for our after-school and weekend classes.

Finishing:
Participants are dismissed inside the gym. participants are not permitted to wait outside for parents but should wait in the viewing area to ensure they are safe. Parents are advised to please come inside to pick up your child and please reinforce this behaviour by asking your child to wait inside for you.

Responsibility:
Ballarat Gymsports whilst providing a safe area for early arrivals and late pickups, accepts no responsibility for children dropped off early or picked up late from class. Our coaches usually have other classes which they must take responsibility for and therefore cannot continue to supervise children if they are not collected. Children should be advised to contact the office or their coach if nobody arrives to pick them up.
