Frequently Asked Questions
Can I watch my child's session?
At Ignite Gymnastics we allow spectators to watch at the side of the hall every session, provided distractions are kept to a minimum. We ask that just one adult spectates in the hall to prevent overcrowding, well behaved siblings are welcome. There is also a balcony that overlooks the hall.
What days/times do you run classes?
All of our class days and times are listed on this website, please see Beginners for age 4 and up, Independent Tots for ages 3 to 4, and Preschool for our Pay As You Go (Parent & Toddler and Stay & Play) classes.
Can I book a trial session?
Trial sessions are mandatory before joining us as a member, to ensure your child enjoys their time with us before committing to monthly payments. To book a trial session, visit How To Join
Do you have a waiting list?
We do not have a waiting list at Ignite Gymnastics. Our availability is reviewed regularly and trial sessions are made available on a weekly basis for the classes that have availability. Trial sessions are first come, first serve.
Are your classes term time only?
Yes, due to the availability of the sports hall in which we run, we are only able to offer term time classes. Independent Tots and Beginners members will be aware that payments are calculated pro-rata and divided into 12 equal monthly payments, so you pay the same each month, regardless of the number of classes that are running.
We are going on holiday/my child is ill, can I get a refund?
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds for any of our classes once paid. Membership payments are made monthly in advance to keep a space available in your child's selected class, regardless of whether they attend every session. Fees are not calculated on a per-class basis.
Refunds or reschedules are not available for our Pay As You Go classes.
Age group queries
Parent & Toddler:
We recommend a minimum age of 2 for our parent & toddler classes, this is because these classes are semi-structured with coaching and instruction throughout. If your child is not yet 2 but feel they would do well in joining a structured class then you are welcome to book on and come and try it out!
Our independent tots classes are for 3 to 4 year old's who do not yet attend school. When your child starts school they will be automatically offered a place in one of our beginners classes. If your child is 4 and not yet in school, they will need to begin in our Independent Tots classes before moving into a beginners 4 to 6 years' group, this decision will be made at the coaches' discretion and your child's progression will be consistently monitored to ensure they are in the most suitable class and group.
We do not set a specific maximum age for our Over 9's classes, we are happy to keep teaching your child as long as we feel they are gaining skills and experience from our classes.
