New children - Settling in
For all children, it can be daunting starting a new club. We would recommend that all parents familiarise themselves with all the club information, and in addition, read the information on the Codes of Conduct page.
For any child under 8, we ask that parents/carers stay in or near the building. If you need to leave the immediate area, for any reason, please inform us. Parents must not watch classes from inside the hall, as this is could affect the club insurance if there was an accident. Once your child is settled, parents may leave them in the care of the staff until the end of your child’s session. Watch Week, which occurs at the end of each half term, will give parents opportunities to view the class from within the hall.
All classes are organised relative to school year, not age. Whatever year group your child is in, this would be the class you would choose. A child in year 1 would go into a Year R/1/2 class. The ages on the class bookings relate to the age of the child on the 1st September.
We run our classes every evening and weekend (except during York school holidays). However, in the event of unforeseen circumstances (including but not limited to: severe weather conditions, flooding, problems with the building), we may have to cancel a session, and we regret we will not be able to refund that lesson. If a lesson is to be cancelled, AGTC will notify parents by email using the membership database. For this reason, it is essential that the club is told if email addresses change.
Our Gymnastics classes have 20 children with 1 Senior Coach, 3 Club/Junior Coaches and additional Sports Helpers as required. Each session starts with 10 minutes of warm up, followed by 10 minutes of line / conditioning work. The children are then put into groups with their coaches, where they will aim to use 3 pieces of equipment each week. This changes weekly according to the term plan. Where possible, children will be grouped according to their gymnastics abilities.
Our Trampoline classes will have 8-10 children working on 2 trampolines, with 1 Senior of Club Coach and 1 Junior Coach or Sports Helper. Each session starts with 10 minutes of warm up. Then the children will take turns on the trampolines in 2 minute intervals. All children will then be encouraged to be involved with conditioning, listening, spotting and time keeping, while waiting for their next turn.
During these sessions the children will be working towards a level badge and certificate (please see memo board or website). If you have an enquiry about your child's progress please come in and see a member of staff.
Our Parkour classes have 20 children with 1 Senior Coach, 1 Club/Junior Coach and additional Sports Helpers as required. Each session starts with 10 minutes of warm up. The children then begin their Parkour training. As with gymnastics, the emphasis
Children can wear; leotards, t-shirts, shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms (not covering feet). T-shirts should not be too baggy or too revealing and the children cannot wear belts or dangling decorations. Although we prefer bare feet, protective, non-slip socks may be worn. On a wooden floor, however, socks can become slippy during warm up, so need to be removed for this activity.
Long hair should be tied up at all times.
NO JEWELLERY OR WATCHES. Earrings must be removed, but if not,
they can be taped up.
Socks MUST be worn on the trampolines. Bouncing activities will be restricted within the sessions if socks are not worn. We do have spares at the club, so please ask if you forget.
Food and Drinks
We do not allow chewing gum or food in the hall. Drinks bottles, with water, are allowed in the hall, but must be kept at the side and can be drunk with the permission of the coaches.
We cannot take responsibility for any personal property brought into the lesson. Please ensure that all items are named and do not leave any belongings behind when you finish. Any loss should be reported to A.G.T.C staff.
Please take your child to the toilet before their lesson starts. In the event that your child does need the toilet during the lesson, a member of staff will take them. If the child requires a parent to take them, the coach will wait at the door until the child is handed back to them.
