Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear to my gymnastics class?
How many gymnasts per coach?
At Shire Gymnastics we have a strict gymnast to teacher ratio of 6 to 1 for Kindy Gym classes and 9 to 1 for our recreational classes like Tiny Tumblers, Super Twisters, High Flyers & Senior Gym
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.
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.
I'm more advanced, can I join your competitive program?
Any gymnasts interested in our competitive program will need to undergo an assessment. To book in an assessment please contact the office. We also assess gymnasts within the recreational program who show an advanced interest or talent for gymnastics and will offer them a trial in our competitive program.
I'm a beginner, can I join a class?
Yes, of course!
All our recreational classes are suitable for all abilities. The coaches will adjust the program to suit each gymnasts needs to ensure they feel comfortable.
