POLICIES

Safety


Safety of participants is of utmost important at ALTA, and we have a number of measures in place to ensure a safe environment:

  • Certified instructors

  • Age and developmentally appropriate activities

  • Skill progressions

  • Quality equipment

  • Expected standards of behaviour for participants

 

Expected Standards of Participant Behaviour

 

  • Only children in a current class may go out into the training area and on the equipment (and only with an instructor)

  • Stay with the group

  • Follow the instructors' directions

  • Be respectful to the instructor and other participants

 

Children who jeopardise the safety and/or interfere with the enjoyment and learning of the other participants will be removed from the program if discussions with the child and parents do not solve behavioural issues. (No refunds in this case).
 

 

Makeup Policy

 

Classes that are cancelled in advance by ALTA (e.g. statutory holidays, ALTA annual competition weekend) will be rescheduled. Classes that are cancelled due to causes beyond our control (e.g. weather) and those missed by members for personal reasons will not be made up.


What to Wear

 

Boys and girls may wear t-shirts and shorts or tights or bodysuits for girls. Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face so as not to interfere with vision. Girls should not wear hair ornaments that may cause discomfort during activity. Bare feet is the most activity-appropriate and safe, but snugly fitting dance type slippers may also be worn. Jewellery should not be worn during classes. Please leave valuables at home - staff cannot be responsible for your items. No chewing gum allowed in the gym.

 


Arrival and Pickup

 

Please bring your child 5 minutes before the scheduled class time and supervise them until class starts. Because changeover times are busy and crowded, children should use the locker rooms, not get dressed in the waiting area. Children are to line up along the barrier by the "Enter" sign until an instructor takes them onto the training floor as a group. Children arriving late should wait by the "Enter" sign until an instructor is available to escort them safely to their group,  not run through the gym area alone. Family members are asked to move upstairs to the observation area as quickly as possible to lessen traffic congestion downstairs between classes. It is very important to pick up your child on time. Staff need to be with the next group, and cannot stay with your child. If there is a problem and you must be late picking up your child, please inform us by phone. Children should be escorted to and from the building and your car - the parking lot is busy.

Cancellation Policy

 

If a participant withdraws from an accepted class placement before the specified date mentioned in the current registration information, there will be a $25.00 administration charge. If a participant withdraws after the specified date, there will not be any refunds without a medical certificate.

If anyone registers before their specified date, they will be charged a $25.00 administration fee and removed from the class.
