Information for the First Day of Classes!
Parent Accounts: If you registered in person or over the phone, please make sure you have logged into your Parent Account to accept our club policies. If you log into your account and it does not prompt you to accept, it means you’re ahead of the game and have done it already. If you have any concerns about the policies, please let us know! You can also verify class days/times from your Parent Account, and manage payments. Click here for a direct link to the Parent Portal, or follow the Register Now tabs anywhere on the website.
Care Card Numbers: If you haven’t already provided us with a Care Card number and information about allergies or physical/behavioral challenges, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 604 392 2555.
Payments: We accept cash, email-transfer, cheques or Visa/Mastercard for full payments and cheques or Visa/Mastercard for payments made in installements. If you are planning to pay installments with cheques, please ensure that we have post-dated cheques for the duration of your program to us before the first day of programs. If cheques were not given upon registration, please contact us to arrange a time to drop them off. Cheques for the duration of the program must be received prior to the start of classes.
Attire: Gymnasts should wear whatever they feel comfortable in to move freely. This usually means no dresses, pants that are so long they would step on them. Hair should be tied back. Gymnasts can have bare feet or wear clean socks or rhythmic gymnastics slippers. If the coach thinks the gymnast will be safer in bare feet, she may ask the gymnast to remove socks/gymnastics shoes. No jeans or hair chalk/hair dye that could stain our carpets. Check our FVRG Gear if you would like to purchase apparel or accessories from us during office hours.
Mom Dad and Me Parents Info: When a parent enters the gym, he/she too becomes a gymnast, and the same rules apply. Jeans are not permitted. Belongings must be left in the cubbies, with no shoes in the gym area. Siblings may not enter the gym area, with the only exception being a baby securely in a baby carrier, if the parent is able to manage both the gymnast and the baby. Young children may not be left unattended in the parent area.
Almost Me Parent Info: As your child gains independence, you may alter your participation in the class. If the child requires full parent support, the parent must adhere to all the rules for parent participation (outlined above with Mom, Dad and Me). If the parent remains in the gym area, but does not actively participate in the class, we ask the parent remains where the coach has asked as it will be important to not interrupt other programs running. The same rules will apply to parents in Almost Me, as outlined in Mom, Dad and Me (siblings may not be in this area, as it is in the gym). If the parent stays in the general parent area, he/she must be able to go assist the child, should he/she need it. All of this will depend entirely on the needs of your own child. If the coach requests a bit more engagement from the parent, the parent will be notified.
