OGC Recreational Policies and Safety Rules

Oakville Gymnastics Club will ensure each participant receives the best instruction available. In the interest of safety for all club members, we ask parents and children to observe the following rules:

What To Wear

Girls may wear leotard or gym shorts and T-shirt. Boys may wear gym shorts and T-shirt. No skirts, jeans, shorts or pants with belts, buckles or zippers. Hair must be tied back and off the shoulders. Bare feet and no jewelry.

Refunds

Refunds will be given only with one week’s notice of cancellation prior to the start of the term or camp. A $30.00 administration fee will apply.

Visitors

Parents and visitors are not allowed on the gym floor unless participating in a Parent and Tot class. Parents and visitors must sit in the observation area. Please do not talk to or otherwise distract the children participating in the classes. Any interruptions could result in serious injury.

Membership

The class fee does not include a mandatory annual $30.00 Gymnastics Ontario insurance and registration fee. This fee is valid from July 1 until June 30 of the following year. The Oakville Gymnastics Club reserves the right to remove any participant for non-compliance.

Registration

Registration for a new term begins a minimum of six weeks prior to the start of the term. Classes are confirmed on a first come, first serve basis. Verbal confirmation is given only upon receipt of payment and is not mailed. We accept payment by cheques, cash, debit, visa and MasterCard. Registrations are accepted over the phone or in person.

Minimum Age

Children must be turning the minimum age of the program they are registering for, within the first 4 weeks of the session start date.
Children must be the minimum age of any camp program prior to the first class.

Facility Levy

All families registering with The Oakville Gymnastics Club will be charged a one-time $35.00 new building fund fee.

Make-up Classes

Make-up classes are not available due to coach/athlete ratios. In the event of a club cancellation a make-up class will be offered at the club’s discretion.

Nut Allergies

Oakville Gymnastics Club is a nut-free environment. All participants are asked to refrain from bringing nuts and nut products into the club due to increasing risk from nut allergies in children.

Valuables

Valuable items should not be brought to the gym. The Oakville Gymnastics Club will not be responsible for lost or stolen items.

Classes

Classes start on time. Do not drop-off children more than ten minutes prior to start of class. Children must be picked up promptly when class is over. Parents are required to supervise children at all times before and immediately after class. Oakville Gymnastics Club does not take responsibility for children left unsupervised after class. In the event you are going to be late picking up your child, please let us know.

Photography

Use of flash photography during training hours is strictly forbidden for the safety of our athletes.
