Tasters (open to all - Book)
5 years old upwards
Huntingdon Gymnastics Club has a waiting list for gymnastics classes (5 years plus). Our policy is that we offer a fair and balanced entry to club, and with this in mind we run an "active" waiting list.
Taster sessions of an hour are offered in half terms and holidays for children and parents to come along and try out the gym, to see if the children firstly enjoy gymnastics and secondly for the parents to see our facilities.
Once a child has attended a session they are automatically placed on our waiting list. We offer spaces based on children who have the most attendance to tasters, and who have been most recently.
We only keep the last six events as an active list.
After each taster session block we review the registers to assess spaces available and offer to those who are at the top of the waiting list. Be aware that if you specify a certain day, you may have to wait longer to get an offer.
Questions and Answers:
Q: Can my child attend more than one session in a taster week?
A: When we are not fully subscribed we can offer a second taster - however, multiple attendance in a week will only count as 1 place on the waiting list
Q: How soon will my child be offered a place?
A: This is difficult to predict, as spaces only occur when members leave, as a basic rule of thumb, boys get through the process more quickly, 5-6 years have a longer waiting list than other ages.
Q: When can I book?
A: Booking is taken from a certain date in the calendar for each taster week/session. These will be displayed in the gym foyer, on Facebook and on the home page of this website. Once on the waiting list we will email you to remind you to book the sessions. You will need to pay in advance. (Please note we are not responsible if your email address is incorrect)
Q: What happens if my child is sick on the day?
A: Regrettably, we are not able to transfer the booking, or refund the money, booking is at your own risk
Q: What does my child need to wear?
A: Something comfortable, that they can move around in easily. No jewellery, no shoes, hair tied back.(no hard bobbles on hair bands)
Q: If I don't attend will I still get issued a point?
A: I'm afraid not, we offer on the basis that the child is committed to gymnastics, and willing to attend the tasters.
