WAIT INSIDE THE BUILDING
Parents are welcome to observe classes at any and all times provided
that they remain in the designated observation areas. For safety
purposes parents are not permitted to stand or sit in the training area
during their child's class. Observers can at times be a distraction, and
therefore they present a safety concern. Gymnasts are able to see you
just as well as you can see them. If you are becoming a distraction,
please step away from the gymnast's view for a few minutes. If you
arrive early to pick up your child, please do not disturb/interrupt
class; wait for your child’s class to be dismissed. We thank you in
advance for your understanding and your cooperation.
