CONCERNS & COMPLAINTS

Concerns or complaints about matters of child protection should be made to the Club’s Welfare Officer. Concerns or complaints about administration should be made to the Club via email.

Airborne Gymnastics Code of Dress should be adhered to at all times when representing the club. This also complies with British Gymnastics British Code of Dress for gymnastic activities.
Due to health and safety regulations, Airborne leotards will be compulsory for all advanced recreational and squad gymnasts, and should be purchased before starting your child’s first session. Recreational leotards are optional, however if purchasing a leotard we would prefer it to be the club leotard. If your child does not wish to wear a leotard then leggings and a t-shirt (with NO hood) must be worn. Boys are to wear shorts and an Airborne polo to training.
CANCELLATION OF CLASSES
If we cancel a regular class we will attempt to offer an alternative class day, time or date to substitute this cancelled class, this is known as a ‘make-up class’. If you are unable to attend a ‘make-up class’ a refund will not be applicable. If circumstances that are out of our control (such as a venue cancelling due to bad weather, power cut etc) no refund or make-up class will take effect.
