WELCOME!

Welcome to TANJULE RG – gymnasts old and new!

REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE:

Before commencing training each year, we require you to complete your annual registration form, and bring it to your first training. You are welcome to print your own out (click here), otherwise Ross Longmire (Pop) has plenty at his desk.

We require $50 for your gymnast to be insured and registered through Gymnastics South Australia. This is a once-a-year-only payment.

It is important for us to have our gymnasts’ medical information and parent contact numbers, before gymnasts are left in our care at training. This is an annual insurance and GSA affiliation fee, and must be paid within the first 2 weeks.

APPARATUS:

We currently have apparatus available to new gymnasts to use while at training. You do not need to purchase your own apparatus until you are committed to the sport.
Once you have decided which apparatus you would like to purchase, we can put in a group order (to share the postage cost), or you are welcome to order your own. Please discuss with your coach what apparatus is right for you, before ordering, as there are different sizes and there may be some secondhand ones available to you. We sell ropes at the club for $15.

We purchase apparatus from –

TRAINING:

First lesson is FREE for new gymnasts. We are a friendly club, and parents are welcome to stay and watch. Please sit to the sideview of your gymnast’s training, not ‘out the front’, as this can distract some of the gymnasts. Should you need to speak to your gymnast’s coach, please make it during setup or a phone call during the week. This eliminates disruption to our busy trainings, and allows for the best coaching possible.

All gymnasts are asked to please arrive on time, and to help with the setup of the mats. The same applies at packup time please. Many hands make light work.

Gymnasts are asked to wear fitted clothing – leotards, croptops and bikeshorts. In winter, stockings and a tight-fitting top may be worn. It is important that training clothes are tight -fitting to enable coaches to easily see the gymnast’s body movements, and ensure they are being performed correctly, without risk of injury. Leotards and sportswear can be bought at the club. We also have secondhand items for sale. You are welcome to bring outgrown club leotards to re-sell.

Hair is to be worn in a bun or ponytail – please use clips – as hair in your face is distracting to both you and your coach.

Please remember to bring your water bottle.

If you are unable to attend training, please send a quick text message to Julie 0408 8285 953 with your gymnast’s name and reason. This helps with training plans, and is really appreciated.

All gymnasts are to be collected from inside the training hall. Gymnasts are not to leave training, without their parent or pick-up person.
