Just as in other sports, like karate, soccer, ballet, or baseball, the apparel for gymnastics is specialized
Our dress code is tied into the official uniform and based on the color
of the stage. It will be obvious at a glance what Stage a gymnast is in. It will help guarantee that the parents
or grandparents don't waste their money buying clothing, which is not appropriate, and then having to be told that their
child or grandchild may not wear the item in gymnastics class.
The official uniform is a
T-shirt and gym shorts for boys, and a gymnastics leotard for girls. In addition:
A. BOYS: The T-shirt must be kept tucked in.
In addition to the leotard, TIGHT gymnastics shorts may be worn OVER the leotard during colder weather. But the teacher
may ask the gymnasts to remove the shorts before going on the equipment. These shorts will be available at the gym,
as well as matching hair schrunchies.
C. ALL STUDENTS
1. The hair must be tied back or clipped back so that it does not fall in the face
or eyes. Hairbands are available in our office for 25¢ each.
2. Special gymnastics shoes
are not necessary, but are optional. Socks if worn, must be cotton.
3. Please leave jewelry at home (watches,
earrings, rings, necklaces, etc). These can be dangerous. We can not be responsible for holding jewelry or for lost
Children who are not properly
attired can not be allowed to participate.

gymnasts are sized for their uniform at registration, and receive their unform for the first class.The other
uniform will incur a small additional fee:
