TEAMS AND CLASSES
Each age group has its own management team that comprises of a Coach, Assistant Coach, Cadets, Team Manager and Costume Manager.
If your child has never done calisthenics before and just wants to try it before committing, please be aware that the FIRST TWO classes are free for first-timers!
If you need to see your Team Manager, please do so at the beginning of class or half an hour before the end of class. It becomes very frantic at the end of class, so this is not an opportune time to discuss matters of importance.
Each week teams work to learn choreography, enhance their flexibility and improve strength and core stability. Each class is facilitated by an accredited coach who each hold a current first aid certificate.
Classes begin on time and it is requested you arrive at least 5 mins early. You will need to bring your clubs, rod and aesthetic skirt to each class. We also ask that each team members provide a piece of fruit to share in the snack break.
Calisthenics is a healthy sport and as such Action encourages healthy eating habits. Please do not bring biscuits or lollies as they will not be served. A bottle of water is important to keep hydrated.
Remove all jewellery as a safety precaution. Please dress appropriately for a dance class e.g. leotard and tights or tight fitted clothes. If you are unsure, please ask your coach or a manager.
At the end of class, team members are not alowed to leave unaccompanied. Team members are not permitted outside alone at any time.
Parents are welcome to stay and watch classes, provided that doing so doesn’t disrupt or distract the class in any way. Please use your judgment, and ensure that siblings are not a disruption.
HOW MUCH PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IS REQUIRED?
As a non-profit organisation, Action understandably relies heavily on parental volunteers. Parents are asked to help at competitions. fundraising events and other club activities held throughout the year.
In addition, at various times throughout the year each family is required to assist with costuming or stage dressing, for example, sewing, sequining, decorating, transporting or constructing stage props.
If you have questions regarding registration or any other aspect of Action or the sport, please do not hesitate to contact us on the phone numbers or email address shown on the “contact us” page.
In an effort to see Action grow bigger and stronger we ask that if you have any friends, cousins, sisters, etc. who might be interested in trying out this wonderful sport, please bring them along to classes for an introduction to Action and our wonderful teams and coaches.
