What is the youngest age children can start classes?
We have classes for children as soon as they can walk! We start with Biddy Buddy classes and offer classes for children through high school age.
What are the children supposed to wear?
All female students (except those in a Diaper Gym Class) are required to wear a one piece leotard (no skirt), hair pulled back neatly, bare feet and legs, no jewelry. All male students are required to wear comfortable shorts or sweatpants (no zippers, buttons, snaps, or belts), a tucked in t-shirt, bare feet and no jewelry.
Can I take pictures during my child’s class?
Unfortunately, in today’s society pictures of children sometimes get used inappropriately. Jump Start wants to do its part to protect our children. Therefore, we cannot allow any unauthorized pictures or videotaping. We will have camera weeks at least eight times throughout the year. You may bring cameras during those times and take as many pictures as you would like.
USA Gymnastics Safety guidelines prohibit the use of flash photography during gymnastics activities. Camera flashes can cause momentary blindness that could cause a fall or injury.
Cameras are distracting to our students when they are trying to focus on the instructors.
What if I miss a class?
Jump Start does allow classes to be made up in similar classes if there is room available. Make ups for classes missed due to an illness or other reasons are not guaranteed. The front office must be notified of your child’s absence in advance in order to be eligible for a make-up class.
How do children move through levels?
The Rainbow Skill Program is a complete developmental program for our non competitive school age girls & boys gymnastics, tumbling and cheerleading classes that allows for easier tracking of skill achievement and level advancement. Students are placed in a skill level designated by a color of the rainbow (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet). Students must master a minimum number of skills at a level to advance to the next colored level. When a student advances to the next level, he/she receives a certificate of completion.
