Places will be available to book for Term 1 beginning in September on Thursday July 20th. We have compiled the following information below to help you in your booking, please read carefully.
In 2016 our website crashed due to the sheer traffic of people trying to book places, for this reason and to avoid any major disruption we will not be announcing a specific time. Places will be released at some time during the morning, please check back on the website periodically.
What places do you have available for starting in September 2017?
The majority of places on offer are only for children with experience. This is because we hold a very high member retention rate meaning we cannot create new classes. There will be places for beginners but not a lot. Please read further down as you can sign up to summer camps/classes before September to gain experience ahead of Term 1.
Are these the only places available? Will you be adding more?
These are the only places currently available. We may have additional places available in September for beginners.
Can I email/phone to be put on a waiting list?
Please do not email or phone looking for places other than these, we also do not hold a waiting list. Please send us an email with any alternate queries but if an age group/beginners group is not listed, we do not have places available at the moment.
Why do these places require experience?
Some places require previous gymnastics experience as we cannot put new gymnasts in with a group of gymnasts who have been taking part in classes for a longer period of time. We strive to keep our groups streamed to ability and age level where possible.
What counts as experience?
Classes in Bar Monkey, gymnastics in a Crossfit setting, gymnastics in PE lessons or self taught does not qualify as having experience to join our classes. Experience must have been at Sugarloaf Gymnastics camps/classes or at another gymnastics club, experience and skills will be checked to see if gymnast is a suitable fit. If not, a refund will be processed and you will have to start the booking process from the beginning.
How do I know if my child matches the experience criteria?
You can sign into your Easy Payments Account and check how many camps/terms they have done. One 4 day camp is 12 hours, which is equivalent to one term with Sugarloaf Gymnastics.
Can I do more camps before starting in September?
Yes, you can book the place for starting in September and also book more camps or classes in our summer program in the mean time to make up the experience. All experience prior to September 1st will count. Info on our Summer Program can be found here. All days of the camps/classes must be attended to count towards experience.
Can I add my child to your waiting list?
We do not hold a waiting list, places are on a first come, first book basis.
You don’t have many places for boys?
We are predominantly a girls club (or Women’s Artistic Gymnastics WAG ) meaning that we have all 4 WAG apparatus, Uneven Bars, Floor, Vault and Beam but do not have all 6 Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) apparatus (High Bar, Parallel Bars, Pommel Horse, Still Rings) so cannot offer a full boys program. As a result we have a much lower in take of boys classes than girls as we can only coach boys at a basic recreational level.
At what age can children start?
Girls born in 2014 can begin this September as long as they have turned three. Boys must be born in 2013. All children must be fully toilet trained, no nappies allowed and must be able to toilet and dress themselves.
