Frequently Asked Questions
What should my child wear to class?
Gymnasts wear leotards or fitted clothing. Shorts and a t-shirt work great for both boys and girls. Athletes need to pull back long hair, avoid hard hair accessories, and remove jewelry prior to class. All athletes need clean, bare feet (no socks) before heading out onto the floor.
What if we miss a class?
To limit exposures to additional children beyond your child's class, we are unable to offer makeups at this time. There are no credits or refunds for missed classes.
We took some time off. What class should my child register for?
Children ages 5 and under select the age appropriate preschool class. These classes are all age based.
Children ages 6 and older register for the class he or she participated in during their last session. If you are still unsure, please contact the front desk to set up an evaluation with one of TNT's coaches to ensure your child is placed in the appropriate class.
PLEASE NOTE: Children’s age is the age they are the day the session starts. If your child has a birthday within the session, they can move to the next age group for the following session.
My child and I are new to gymnastics. What level do I join?
If your child is 18 months-5 years you may register for the class based on your child’s current age. If your child is 6 year old or older, students generally begin in the Beginner Class.

Can I request an instructor?
TNT assigns coaches to classes based on enrollment numbers. Due to this coaches are not assigned to a class prior to the session started. We encourage you to register before coach assignments to not miss out on your preferred class day and time as classes fill quickly. All of our coaches our certified instructors through USA Gymnastics and goal is for your child to enjoy their class and learn new skills.
What is a placement evaluation and how long will it take?
A placement evaluation is for children ages 6 and older to find the correct class if they have previous gymnastics experience. A coach spends a few minutes with the child in the gym to determine their skill level and the appropriate class. Placement evaluations depend on the child’s experience and skill level, but typically last no longer than 10 minutes. If your child is 5 or under, they do not need a placement evaluation as they register for their class by age.
