Important Reminders:

* Arrive to the gym 5 minutes early

* Drop off is only available at the front entrance and we have parking available at the back of our building. PLEASE DO NOT park in other businesses' parking lots especially not the Centre Stage Dance Studio or LUCO concrete (across from us).

* When you drop your child off, leave them at the door (we prefer parents not to come into the gym as space is limited).

* Unfortunately, we do not offer viewings. We do not have a seating area within the gym nor a viewing window for parents to watch their children. Adults are not permitted in the gym. This policy was in place pre-Covid19 and is not a result of the pandemic. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis (anxiety, medical needs etc). During warm weather, the gym doors at the back parking lot will be open and parents are allowed to sneak a peek. Please note that if you choose to watch your child through the back gym doors, the expectation is that coaches and athletes will not be disturbed or distracted by guests.

* For PARENT & TOT classes, please send only ONE parent per child.

* Please send a water bottle with your child and have them wear comfortable clothing. Tie long hair back in a ponytail. Female gymnasts can wear a leotard/bodysuit or an athletic one-piece bathing suit. We offer locally-made gym bodysuits/leotards at great prices from $20 to $35 (tax included). Cash, chq (made payable to Andreea Szilaghi) or E-T at: saanca@hotmail.com (use the password “Celestina”). They can also wear stretchy t-shirts and shorts if they like. Male gymnasts are required to wear shorts. Cotton blends are excellent choices. Bare feet inside the gym.

* Parents, please pick up your children on time. When classes are completed, all athletes must leave promptly.
