Gym Rules and Policies

General Housekeeping Rules:

  • Due to insurance and liability reasons, only registered gymnasts and coaches are permitted in the gym area with the exception of one Parent and Tot parent. 

  • Only one parent is permitted at at time in the Parent and Tot class. Parents may take turns but only one on the gym floor at a time. 

  • There is absolutely no food, gum, drinks or shoes allowed in the gym area. 

  • No unauthorized children or adults in the gym area at any time. 

  • If children are being dropped off for class, parents must come inside to pick them up. We will not let children out into the parking lot without a parent. 

  • Absolutely no photos or videos are to be taken of the gymnasts or classes due to privacy purposes. 

  • Children must stay with their coach and follow their coaches instructions at all times. 

  • Parents must not distract their child by talking to them from the viewing area. It is disruptive for the coach and unsafe as it takes their attention away from the skill they are doing. 

  • Children must wear comfortable and easy to move in clothing. No jeans, jewelry, skirts, clothes with zippers or tutus. Hair must be tied back and no shoes. 

  • Children must keep their hands and feet to themselves and be respectful of other gymnasts. Bullying will not be tolerated. Anyone who cannot follow this policy will be asked to leave the gym. We also expect coaches to abide by this rule and the Respect in Sport ethics and code of conduct.

Storm/Cancellation Policy:

  • In case of inclement weather, we will make the decision to close by 3pm of that day. For Saturdays, we will make the decision by 7am. Notices will be posted on our Facebook page which can also be viewed on our website on the Facebook feed. You will also be able to get information at  the CBC News Storm Centre after 3pm. We will also leave a voice message on the gym phone by the same times listed above. 

  • Make-up classes - If we cancel classes then we will find a date and time to make the class up. If gymnasts miss classes there are no makeups or refunds. 


  • There is a 15% discount for the second and consecutive child that registers starting with the class of lesser amount. There is also a 15% discount if your child signs up for a second class. 


  • Full refunds will be provided as long as it is prior to the start of the session. If the session has begun then a $25 cancellation fee will be applied. The Gymnastics Nova Scotia Registration fee is non-refundable.
