Frequently Asked Questions

Age
Our program is open to ages 4+, however our program is not always a good fit for all 4 yr old children as development at this age varies significantly. We provide a 6:1 coach to student ratio which requires an ability to work independently and our program is quite structured, which can be too much for younger children.

Attire
Fitted athletic wear and bare feet. Please have your child wear a pair of shoes that can be slipped off and on easily and bring a water bottle to each class.

Administration
Parents are required to drop off and pick up their child to and from class. For your child’s safety No curbside drop off please. If you need to contact us during class you can reach us at 858-229-4462 or the Recreation Center offices: Scripps Ranch 858-538-8085/Hourglass 858-538-8153

Allergies
If your child has any allergies please let us know asap so we can take appropriate precautions.

Class Length
All classes are 50 minutes.

Communication
Our website: www.SpiritKidsSports.com is our main source of communication. Occasionally we will email information as well. Please check the website often for updated information or any questions you may have.

Viewing Policy
Our goal is to provide a safe environment where students can focus and excel without distractions. For several reasons only students are allowed into the gym during gymnastics classes. This policy is in place foremost for the safety of the students and is strictly enforced without exception by both SpiritKids and the City of San Diego Parks and Recreation.

There are several areas with windows where parents may view from outside without disrupting classes. We also offer parents an opportunity to attend the last 15 minutes of class several times a year to observe their child’s progress and take pictures.

Makeup Policy
Payment reserves your child’s spot in a class. We do not offer refunds for missed classes. One make up class per 12 week session is offered. Reservations are required as space is limited.The date and location are listed on the registration form.

Progression
Our main goal is for your child to have fun as they build confidence, strength and body awareness and enjoy gymnastics! We teach proper form and technique FIRST. At times some skills might look too easy from your perception however doing even an easy skill with the proper form is our goal. It is much easier to teach a skill with proper form and technique than it is to try to re-teach a skill after bad habits have been formed. Gymnastics is a progressive sport and practice and consistency definitely helps. Our website offers many drills that can be practiced at home with in depth directions to help students practice successfully.

Registration
Our program enrolls 4 times a year. Registration is taken through our website. Each quarter is broken into 11-13 week sessions depending on the Holidays, etc. Currently enrolled students will have priority registration every quarter for one week prior to us opening registration to everyone on a first come/first serve basis. Most of our classes fill each quarter therefore we highly recommend taking advantage of the priority registration dates.
