Frequently Asked Questions


1. What should my child wear to class?   
ABSOLUTELY NO STREET CLOTHING
For girls, any type of leotard used for dance or gymnastics, or a t-shirt and shorts. For boys, a t-shirt and shorts will do. The children do not wear any shoes, and long hair must be tied back with a soft hair elastic. Make sure NOT to wear any street clothing such as jeans, belt buckles, heavy sweatshirts and any type of jewellery.  It will restrict the athlete's range of movement. Make sure to bring a water bottle!

Our Mission Statement    I'mpossible
The FitKidz Gymnastics Club is dedicated to helping all participants reach their potential, both physically and mentally, through the sports of gymnastics and dance.  Every child, regardless of ability, deserves the best instruction possible.  It is our goal to provide a safe and loving atmosphere in which each child knows he or she is valued.  We will strive to provide an environment that cultivates listening skills, confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, honesty, hard work ethics, team work, goal setting and responsibility.   Fitkidz is a place where all children can feel great about their accomplishments.  Most important, we hope that years after the children have moved on from their gymnastics and dance training, they will look back at their experience at Fitkidz Gymnastics and Dance and recognize the lifelong benefits.  Our goal is to make the sports of gymnastics and dance fun, safe and challenging activities for athletes in a positive environment led by experienced, skilled and professional coaches. At Fitkidz Gymnastics we commit ourselves to helping each child reach her/his fullest potential and achieve their goals and dreams.
