Code Of Conduct
Gymnastics is an all-round sport and one that is both physically and mentally tough. Through our classes your child will gain and develop many skills and qualities. They will develop core/fine motor skills such as listening and taking instruction, they will understand limits and discipline, talking and communicating with peers and coaches as well as gaining physical strength, agility, endurance and co-ordination, to name a few. They will learn to commit, and we hope you can encourage and support our gymnasts alongside the coaching staff.
At Pro-Star Gymnastics Academy, we strive to deliver high quality classes set to a high standard. We hope you will be patient with your gymnasts and understand this is a process which they have to learn and develop.
Pro-Star Gymnastics Academy believe it is important for all coaches, parents / guardians and gymnasts associated with the club to show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare for others at all times. Accordingly, the expectations for behaviour of coaches, parents / guardians and gymnasts are outlined in this Pro-Star Code of Conduct - Gymnasts. Each code is concluded with the course of action that will be taken in the event of a breach.
To maximise safety and efficient learning, Pro-Star Gymnasts' are expected to adhere to the following:
