We’ve compiled a list of all the frequently questions we usually get asked regarding our classes, coaches and facility. If you still haven’t found the answers you’re looking for, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
What do I bring and wear to my class?
When registering at Shire Gymnastics you will receive a FREE club T-shirt to wear as your uniform along with any stretchy pants, shorts or tights. We also sell singlets/ tanks for $35 if you prefer.
We recommend not wearing denim or skirts as this impacts the gymnasts range of motion and can damage the equipment with any buttons or zips.
The gymnasts will also be required to bring a labelled bottle of water to each class.
