Welcome to the Fall Jacobs Gymnastics Session!

We are excited to be starting our 16th season here at Jacobs!
We welcome all the new gymnasts and appreciate the support of the returning gymnasts and their families!
The first few weeks can be a little overwhelming and we appreciate everyone’s patience and enthusiasm!
If you have not yet turned in updated registration forms and September tuition and registration fees, please do so this week!

The coaches will be evaluating the gymnasts during class to ensure that each gymnast is in an appropriate class for their age and ability.

Parents are not allowed to watch from inside the gym – very distracting and space is limited! The blinds are rarely closed.
While it is fun to watch class – many gymnasts are distracted by the many parent faces at the window.  We appreciate your support of this policy.

Please make sure your gymnast has appropriate fitting attire – a  leotard for girls – belly/back covered. No skirts attached, no pants.
Lycra shorts are fine though.  Bare feet, hair pulled up off neck and out of eyes. No jewelry.
Boys – t-shirt/shorts. Nothing too baggy. Bare feet also.

Additional parking is available in the rear of the building. The first few weeks can be very difficult while everyone gets into the routine.
Please do not pull up close to the door to unload your gymnast as others are trying to safely exit!
Please do not park next to the building as well or block other businesses.

Make ups are not allowed in September only – due to the full classes and our goal of learning about each gymnast and making sure each one is in the appropriate class!

If you have questions, concerns, or comments – please ask Chris or Beckye or speak with your gymnast’s coach after class!

Please email me directly with any questions or comments – chrisjacobs04@msn.com
Thanks so much!

* May 29- June 4 – GYM GLOSED to prepare for summer schedule.

A big THANKS to all the families that came out last week to enjoy Parents’ Week! We had a lot of fun having you join in! I’m sure your gymnast loved it too!

If you have not yet registered for summer classes and camps
– take a look at our new website for all the schedules. If you are hoping to just continue at the same time – please shoot me an email if you have not yet registered for summer. Super simple and classes start next week! More details below!

Summer programs begin the week of June 5th! Register Today!!

News from earlier in the month:
Parent’s Week is coming on May 22-25 at your gymnast’s regularly scheduled class! 
Parents and siblings are welcome to come and participate, cheer and take pictures/video of your gymnast’s class. Gymnasts will present routines, skills and more. Parents are encouraged to come in comfortable clothing – start the class with stretching activities and be ready to participate periodically throughout the class. Because we have several classes overlapping, we ask everyone to stay with their child’s class, exercise patience in the parking  and be excited to share this special time. The gymnasts are excited to show you skills and have you in the gym. This is NOT a production to invite extended family to come to. Our gym has limited space as you know and this should be a special time for parents! Let me know if you have questions!

Summer is Coming! Sign up today for Summer Classes!! I’ve attached our summer schedules as our website is experiencing some issues. By early next week, we will have a brand new website to unveil! Summer gymnastics is a great opportunity to continue progress and gain new skills! Gymnastics is a sport that benefits from consistency. We offer a very similar schedule in the summer, with the addition of a few more morning and afternoon options. We also offer several 2 day camps that are perfect for gaining new skills, extra gym time, and burning some energy. Summer is a 12 week program with the option to compete in the Jacobs 14th annual Tumbling Meet – open to all level gymnasts ages 4 and over!

REGISTER FOR SUMMER TODAY!

Make-up lessons will NOT be scheduled May 22 – 25.

Please email me directly with any questions or comments – chrisjacobs04@msn.com

Thanks so much!
