[ ] I agree to G-4orce Athletics using my child in photo or video for the use of G-4orce Athletics in the following manner listed above.
EXPECTATIONS OF ATHLETES
1) You are expected to work hard and do your best at all times.
2) Arrive at the gym ready to participate with proper attire. Girls gymnastics - Leotard or Leotard and Bikers. Cheer, Tumbling, and Parkour- spanks, shorts, or leggings/ no loose clothing/ you may wear cheer shoes. No athletics style shoes on the floor, hair pulled back, jewelry off, gum in the trash can and ready to go!
3) Practice will begin promptly at designated times and gymnasts must be ready to perform at that time.
4) Treat your peers with respect, be kind to those gymnasts younger than you, and do not think to hold yourself out as better than other gymnasts. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses (and if you have not found them yet, you WILL.)
5) Only concern yourself with things that YOU can control, which are YOUR ATTITUDE, YOUR EFFORT....YOUR PERFORMANCE!!
6) Maintain a positive attitude when facing fears and frustrations. You will suffer setbacks, frustration, mental blocks, fear and defeat. Expect these things, learn from them, face them and overcome them!
7) Ask permission to leave the gym. This applies to going to the restroom, getting a drink or talking to parents. The main reason is so that your coaches always know where you are.
8) Always act in a way that shows respect for you and for the gym. There is NO PLACE in our gym for displays of anger or disgust, talking back to coaches or other adults, or crying because you have given into your frustrations or fears.
9) Be honest, cheating is the ugliest form of disrespect. It shows disrespect to your coaches, your parents, and most importantly to yourself.
10) Show respect for your safety and to the demands of your coaches by staying off the equipment without the specific permission and supervision of a coach.
11) Always wait inside the facility for your ride. You are not to wait outside for pick-up following practice.
12) Use of phones /tablets is strictly forbidden during practice. All phones and tablets must be kept in your locker, purse, or shoes during the entirety of practice. You are here for gymnastics, and your focus needs to be on your practice.
13) When you are not sure what to do and you are waiting for instruction from your coach, stand quietly at a in an orderly fashion with your teammates until you are given instruction.
14) Always practice safety first. If you don't know what to do. Ask the coach. If you are afraid of a skill, you have a responsibility to speak to your coach. They are there to help you overcome your fears. Trust them and never be afraid to USE YOUR VOICE.
Parents play a huge role in the development of a success of your child. Your role is every bit as important as that of the gym, coaches and the athlete. The following actions and ideas are expected of G-4orce Athletics member's parents.
1) You are an instrumental contributor to her success and happiness. Tuition must be paid on time and a commitment to transport your gymnast to and from workouts must be made. In addition and equally important, parents must help instill work ethic, values and provide support for yourchild to be successful.
2) Please do not talk to your child during practice, including if they are is getting a drink. It is important for the gymnasts to stay focused and with their group.
3) If you need to get a message to your child during practice, please respect our mobile device policy. We ask that you not only encourage, but hold them accountable to it. If a message must be relayed to them during practice please talk to the office staff and they will relay the message.
4) Parents are not permitted on the gym floor and must refrain from coaching or commenting during any training session. If your child is not paying attention or messing around, we realize it is tempting. This is the job of the coaches.
5) We strongly encourage our parents not to stay for practice. We will allow parents in the last 15 minutes of practice. We have had very positive results with closed practices. Just like it is difficult to see if your child has gotten taller because you are with them every day, it will be hard to see the progress they are making if you watch every practice. We do encourage you to watch your child practice a few times a month the last 15 minutes of class to see their progress and work ethic. It is also important to let your child practice without you present to allow them to completely focus on the instruction from their coach.
6) We feel that communication with the parents of our members should be open and flowing. We email all important information as well as post it on Instagram and Facebook @g4orceathletics.
7) Parents are expected and encouraged to show proper respect for our sport at all times. Rude, belittling, or negative comments about coaches, parents, and other gymnasts are always inappropriate and have no place in our program.
8) If you have an issue or concern, please speak to the coach. To complain or gossip to other parents cannot solve your problem, nor can we solve them if we do not know about them. We ask that you please trust and have enough faith in us to come to us and allow us to handle the situation.
9) Be encouraging and positive to your child. Be careful of comparisons, because each child is an individual with different talents and capabilities.
10) Please be on time to pick your gymnast up after practice.
11) We have an open door policy. If you or your child have an issue or concern, we ask you to PLEASE communicate it with us. Please give us the chance to address and handle the situation. No concern is too small. We want your feedback.
