Because gymnastics is good for children, we provide recreational and competitive gymnastics, in Galway, Ireland
All gymnasts must re-register with Renmore Gymnastics club each September through our online system to maintain their space within a class, they must register under either a competitive or recreational status, and this will be clarified by their coach. Primary contact is to be made by email through email@example.com
Places cannot be held for gymnasts who fail to attend regular classes therefore please inform the Club Administrator by email immediately should your child no longer wish to attend as there is a large waiting list.
All classes currently operate by invitation only through our waiting list. Please fill in an application form to express your interest in attending classes with us.
Abuse of any type or form will not be tolerated. Verbal, emotional or physical abuse of members or staff will result in expulsion from the premises.
Any members on medication or suffering from a medical condition/learning difficulty must inform the club before joining the class so that appropriate arrangements may be made.
In the interest of safety members are strictly prohibited from using equipment within Galway Gymnastics Training Centre, other than for gymnasts during their designated class time.
Please ensure all children have gone to the toilet prior to class time as toilet breaks are extremely disruptive, this is especially important during the 1 hour recreational classes.
If access to the toilets and changing room at the facility are required please ensure a designated member of staff is present and aware.
No parents to remain inside the gym during class time unless specifically asked by a coach on duty. It has been proven that a much better response from children is possible when a parent is not present.
Gymnasts should NOT enter the hall prior to their class commencement, this is imperative for the successful running of all classes as it leads to disruption to the class in progress. A member of staff will invite them gymnasts in when it is time for their class to begin.
In addition Renmore Gymnastics Club cannot be held responsible for gymnasts waiting outside of the hall, outside of their own designated class time.
No gymnast is to leave the centre before a parent has arrived for collection. Children finishing a class may wait quietly inside the hall until a parent has arrived.
Gymnasts must seek permission before leaving the hall/centre. Please do not call your child’s attention towards the windows or hall as it may interfere in the safety or children working.
All members are expected to show respect and courtesy towards their coaches and fellow gymnasts. Bad behaviour will result in parents being contacted and further discussion of the issue.
Members are asked to support fundraising events organised by RGC as they run solely for the benefit of the club, its future development plan and its members.
Coaches are not available for discussion with parents during class time, it is too disruptive. Please find time to talk with a coach if necessary outside of designated class time by scheduling an appointment with our Club Administrator by text or email.
There will be opportunities for refreshment (drink) during the training sessions. Whilst it is not compulsory please ensure your child brings a drink should they need one. We recommend gymnasts bring water, fizzy drinks are not permitted. Chewing gum, lollipops and sweets etc are also not allowed inside the hall.
All children attending classes are asked to help tidy the gym at the end of EACH CLASS, this is expected from the children and is included as part of their gymnastics training, failure to do so may affect their attendance.
Please ensure your child attends in appropriate attire. Jeans, tights or skirts ARE NOT suitable for gymnastics. Shorts, t-shirts, tracksuits and training leotards are suitable for recreational classes.
Gymnasts training at competition level need to attain clubs competition attire. Please contact our Club Administrator for more information.
Hair should be neatly tied back for both classes and competitions.
Please ensure term fees (training fees) are paid according to our Club Policy.
RGC runs on a strict no fees no train policy so failure to pay fees on time will affect your child’s participation in classes. Gymnasts with outstanding fees will be removed from classes and may be placed on our waiting list again once the balance has been cleared.
Any classes organised for extra competition training that run outside of term dates will be charged separately and should be paid on the day of training. Failure to attend extra competition training may affect a gymnasts participation in the event.
Competition Participation fees must be paid in advance of participation in an event. Failure to do so will affect the gymnasts ability to participate in the event.
I understand that members may be photographed or videoed when necessary for the purpose of coach training, or for use on the club website or newsletters, display boards, or any other relevant club event or occasion.
Spectators are NOT allowed to take photographs or videos of members while they are training. Please let a member of staff know if you see someone operating a camera without permission.
All members are required to have an email address which we ask to be informed to RGC upon registration.
