We are excited to offer a 10 week virtual gymanstics program. A new pre-recorded class will be released each week. Each class builds on the previous and is aligned with our in-gym program.
Our virtual gymanstics classes are led by one of our recreational coaches and a Coach-in-Training assists as a demonstrator. Each class includes a warm-up, circuits/exercises/games (depending on the age and level), skill work a dance section, and of course a cool down.
Check out our frequently asked questions below for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions

These classes are pre-recorded so you can do the class anytime during the week that is convenient.
How much do the virtual classes cost?
The virtual program is $100 (no tax as we are a non-profit organization) for 10 weeks.
Do I need a Gymnastics Ontario membership?

Can I register by phone?
At this time all our staff are working remotely so we do prefer that you register online if possible. If that is not an option for you, or if you are having difficulty with the registration process, please email email@example.com and one of our team members will reach out to you to provide assistance.
How much space does my child need?
We recommend a space of approximately 6' X 6' but it will be easy to modify the activities if your space is a little smaller.
What should my child wear?
Any type of athletic wear is fine. Shorts/leggings and a t-shirt are ideal. If you want to wear a gymnastics leotard that is also an option. Just like in the gym children should be barefoot and have long hair tied back.
What if I am busy and miss a week?
Don't worry, all classes will be available to you for a full 3 months so you never miss out.
Can I do the class more than once?
Yes! In fact you can do each class as many times as you like.
I have two children, do I have to register both of them?
If your children are different ages and/or levels, you may need to register them in different classes. But if they are going to do the same class then you only need to register once.
How do I access the virtual classes?
A link to our Virtual Portal will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your registration.
I have a credit on my account. Can I use it for the virtual program?
My child is currently registered in the in-person session that is currently paused. Can I swith my child to the virtual program?
Will the virtual classes continue when in-person classes resume?
The virtual classes will continue for the full 10 weeks, even if in-person classes resume. If you want to switch back to in-person, we will switch you to an in-person class. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help to do this.
What if my child doesn't like the class?
We suggest you encourage your child to give it a try. Perhaps even do the class with him/her. Keeping active is very important. Remeber you can pause the class at any time and come back to it later if it's too much all at once.
How long is each class?
Each class runs approximately 30 mintues. Some may be a few minutes less, others a few minutes more.
Do we need any special equipment?
At the start of each class the Coach will let you know what you need. These are all items that are easily accessible at home, such as a pair of socks, a stuffie, or a pillow. If you don't have a specific items, don't worry -- you can still participate.
What if the class is too easy / too hard?
If you selected the class based on our descriptions and still find after at least two classes that it is not the right fit contact us at email@example.com and we will move your child to a class that is better suited to his/her abilities.
We decided not to continue with virtual classes. Can we get a refund?
We only provide a refund if withdrawal is due to a medical reason. A doctor's note may be requested.
