10 Month Sessions
Our registration period is for a 10 month session!  You no longer need to  re- register for a class after Christmas or after Spring Break.  Once you are registered in a class you will have your spot until June!  This will allow athletes to continue progressing in the same class all year.  Coaches will move athletes to the next level as soon as the necessary skills are achieved. Report cards will be issued twice a year. Once a year, our Director will take a close look at individual classes and suggest movement if necessary.
 
Withdrawal for the 10 Month Season
Classes may be dropped at any time with 1 full months notice via email at the office. For Example, notice given January 3rd would be notice for February. February tuition would be charged and athletes would remain in class until the end of February.

 

Payment Information
All payments will be monthly. You will still need to pay when you register in order to hold your spot, but you can register online with your credit card and tuition fees will be charged at the beginning of each month. If you prefer you can still pay with post-dated cheques at the office once the early-bird registration is over. If you are paying with funding you can still attend classes as long as you bring in your completed Twisters funding form to the office. You will be responsible for payments if you funding falls through.
All past due fees must be paid in order to continue enrollment.
With the new schedule and billing procedures you will only pay for scheduled classes. Monthly fees will be discounted for scheduled closures (i.e. Christmas Break) statutory holidays, and special days. For a complete list of scheduled closures please check our website.

WHAT TO WEAR: 
Boys or Girls may wear tucked in T-shirts and shorts OR Leotards for Girls. NO chewing gum or dangling jewellrey. Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face so that is stays up for the entire workout. Girls should not wear bows or other large hair ornaments that may cause discomfort during activity. All students should have bare feet for class. Personal items should be left in cubby holes. Jewellery should not be worn during classes. PLEASE LEAVE JEWELLERY ARTICLES AT HOME. This facility's staff will not be responsible for ANY items that may be lost or stolen. Be sure your student's personal items are marked with their name.
 
WHAT TO BRING: 
All athletes will be asked to have bare feet, or gymnastics slippers.  Please wear athletic clothing and be sure that t-shirts are tight so that they don’t ride up when athletes go upside down.   Gymnastics suits are not required but are great for girls, as well as bathing suit with shorts over the top.  We do have a selection of gymnastics body suits for sale in the lobby for those who are interested. Jeans are not permitted as the zippers and buttons damage equipment. 
Long hair should be tied back, and jewelry (including dangly earrings) should be left at home and not worn in class.
Please bring a water bottle that can be stored in the cubbies in the change room along with their shoes and jackets.  We do have a water fountain available in the boys and girls bathroom as well.
When arriving for class, please go to the change room to put all your things in a cubby and then come back to the lobby to wait for your class to start.  5 minutes before class, coaches will be waiting at the entrance of the gym to organize athletes and get ready for the warm up activities.  Parents are to keep all children out of the gym and off the equipment, this is greatly appreciated.
Parents are welcome to stay and view their child’s class from the lobby or our fantastic bleachers in the hallway upstairs.  Please do not enter the gym, unless your child’s coach needs your assistance.  Also remember that due to insurance regulations, no siblings will be allowed in the gym if it is not their scheduled class time.

 

ARRIVAL AND PICK UP: 
Be sure your student arrives 5 minutes before (no earlier please) his/her scheduled class time. Please pick up your student on time. Please inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student. Instruct your student to wait inside the building and you should escort them from the building to your car. During peak times the parking lot is crowded. Please take into consideration that our students may include young children. Please drive slowly and carefully. Do not take a chance on your student running to and from your car.
 
VIEWING POLICY: 
Parents are welcome to view their athlete while they take recreational classes. Twisters would like to provide a positive and respectful viewing environment and ask that all parents keep this in mind while in the building.
 
WASHROOM POLICY: 
In order to keep class interruptions to a minimum we require all preschoolers to visit the washroom prior to class. We require parents of all 3 year old students to remain in the gym while their child is in class.  If your child needs to visit the washroom, the coach will try to get your attention so you can attend to your child. If your child has an accident you will be contacted and your child will be waiting for you on the bench by the office. 
 
DIAPER POLICY: 
There is a change table located in both the boy’s and girl’s bathrooms for your convenience. Please DO NOT change your child’s diapers on the mats or benches for the health of all of our athletes.   If your child is being toilet trained, please take your child to the washroom prior to class even if they went at home. If you observe your child doing the “potty dance”, please come into the entrance of the gym area, to take your child out of the class and to the bathroom. Some children are reluctant to tell the teacher if they have to go. We ask that itty-bitty students wear a clean diaper or pull-up as needed. If your child is in a diaper we ask that you stay during class. Students have a wetting accident will be asked to leave the gym area and not return unless clean dry appropriate apparel is available.
