Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I pay for Star-Tastic Gymnastics classes?
A. The easiest and one of our preferred methods is a BACS transfer putting your child's full name as the reference. This information can be sent via email.
For our Open Classes we request payment is made via GoCardless payment system. More information of setting up this payment method will be given upon enrolment.
Cash or Cheque Payments can also be handed to coaches on the FIRST DAY of the term.
Q. What should my child wear for class?
Q. Before and After School classes do not have to wear club clothing. We suggest sensible exercise clothing such as T-Shirt with leggings or short. Clothing must not be baggy and no jewellery.
We have T-shirts, vest tops, shorts and leotards that can be purchased if your child would like our club clothing - CLUB SHOP.

A. Our Head Coaches and Coaches are qualified with IGA and/or British Gymnastics. We encourage our youth gymnasts to try out some volunteer coaching and if they wish to coach when they are older we can mentor them through their training with British Gymnastics. If you would like to know more about coaching with Star-Tastic Gymnastics, please contact Head Coach Stacey.
Q.Can we still join your classes after the term has started?
A. Of course!! Your child can start at any time throughout the term as long as there is space in the class. Every child is taught at their own pace and coaches will accommodate new starters.
Q. Can parents watch?
A. Parents cannot watch every lesson. We have found that gymnasts focus better without parents in the room. We invite parents to watch on the last day of term to see how much their little gymnast has learnt.
Q. What is your ratio of children to coaches?
A. We aim to have a 1:6 ratio (or less) in as many of our classes as possible.We try to keep are ratios of coaches to children is 1:8 as a maximum.
Every child will have 1-1 time in every lesson when badges are completed.
