FALL OPENING NEWS

Classes are starting on Tuesday, September 7th.  The Monday class will start on September 13th.  The fall schedule is attached for your review.  Any classes that did not have a sufficient number of students were cancelled, and students were provided with other class options.

 If you have not filled out your registration form, please do the first day of class.  Parent / Child classes will have an additional waiver form for parents to fill out.  As you arrive, please sign in at the desk.  We want to make sure all students have a contact name and phone number as well as knowing who is in the gym at all times in case of emergency.

Open Gym will start on Friday, September 10th from 7pm to 9pm.  $7 for students and $10 for non-students.  All non-students will need to have a waiver form filled out by a parent or guardian before participating in Open Gym.  Ask us about registering to receive a student discount.

 Our studio room is almost complete and a schedule of activities will be emailed out this week.  We do have Nicole Austin “Crafty Kids” (www.wix.com /NicoleAustin/CraftyKids) scheduled to do kids crafts on Thursday mornings at 10am starting on September 16th.  Ages 3+ and cost is $ 8.  Call or stop in to gather additional information.

This summer our staff had the opportunity to meet and work with a special young lady named Rebekah Peterson.  She has an extensive gymnastics background including competing at the Elite level.  She is excited to be coaching our staff and is even more enthusiastic to meet our students and work with them.  She will periodically be involved in our weekly classes as well as participating and coaching our monthly specialized skill clinics.  Her biography is listed below.

We look forward to seeing everyone this fall and hope you had a great summer!
