Yes, class prices are adjusted based on number of classes left. Registration is only open until the 3rd week of the session.

No most of our classes are full leaving no room to fit in children who have missed other classes. There are also no refunds or discounts for missed classes. Refunds will only be provided if the coaches cancel the class due to unforeseen circumstances.

Most likely the class is full and has been closed for registrations

You can either register for a class at another time or contact us to be put on the cancellation wait list and/or be added to the mailing list to be notified when new classes open.

Possibly, we are a small gym and can only run a few classes at a time. New classes are only opened after the first classes completely fill. If you wish to be notified of new classes you can be added to the mailing list HERE

Unfortunately we only offer online registration and payment at this time. In order to keep class costs down we don’t have a staff member at the desk to take payment/registrations. If you need assistance registering or paying please call, text or email

If you haven't received an invitation by one of our coaches but feel as though your child is ready you can request a try out HERE.

Our provincial team starts at 3hrs twice a week, higher levels train additional days/hours.

Please bring a water bottle, there is a water fountain but it is not inside the gymnasium. Have hair shoulder length or longer tied up. Please wear/have gymnastics appropriate clothing on for the start of class (see above What should my child wear? For recommendations) Bringing a  positive attitude is a bonus 🙂

Yes absolutely! We just ask that it is wrapped securely and tucked into clothing to prevent it from flipping up, getting caught or falling off.
