Participants and Age Requirements
Our maximum ratio for Recreational and Ninjastics is 8:1 and Trampoline is 4:1. Participants should be the minimum age for the program they are registering for prior to the first class of the session. However, if space and groupings permit, the Program Director may allow a child to be registered for a program if they are turning the minimum age during the session. We do reserve the right to transfer/credit the child during the session if, in our judgment, the child is not ready for the program.
Only staff and participants are allowed in the gym during class time. We have a second floor viewing area available to watch the class.
