What class should I register my child for?
If your child is not yet in first grade, he/she would be in our Tiny Tot program.
Classes in this program are based on age.
If your child is in first grade, or higher, he/she would register for our Developmental
Program. Classes in this program are based on skill level. If your child has some
gymnastics experience on regular sized equipment and is first grade or higher, we
recommend that you bring them in for a skill test. In a skill test, one of our instructors
will evaluate your child’s abilities and make a recommendation. To schedule a skill
test, please contact our Brookfield office at (262)782-3430. You may take classes at
either location based on the skill test results.
In our Tumbling/Cheer/Acro program, the beginner class is for students who are 8
years or older, with little tumbling experience. Progressions to the intermediate or
advanced classes are by teacher recommendation only. For more information, please
contact our office.
What should my child wear to class?
All clothing should be free of buttons or zippers. No jewelry should be worn during classes (stud earrings are okay). If eyeglasses are worn, be sure they are securely fastened. Feet should be bare.
Tiny Tots: T-shirt and shorts with no buttons, snaps or zippers. Girls may wear a leotard if they wish. Long hair should be pulled back in a ponytail. No socks or shoes in the gym.

How does my child move to the next level?
Progression in our Tiny Tot program is based on age.
Progression in our Developmental and Cheer/Tumbling/Acro programs are based on skill level. Each level in the Developmental and Cheer/Tumbling/ Acro programs has a set of skills that must be mastered before your child is ready to move to the next level. Your child will receive a progress report that shows what skills they have mastered and what still needs to be worked on. Mastering all of the skills in each level usually takes multiple sessions. If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress, please contact his/her instructor.
What is my role as a parent?
What if my child has an open wound or wart?
Any student with a pre-existing open wound must have the wound appropriately
bandaged prior to the start of class. Any student with a wart must have the wart
completely covered. If the wart is on the foot, a bandage and sock is recommended.
A student with an uncovered open wound or wart will NOT be allowed to participate
for the health of others in the gym. They may observe from the side.
If the student wishes to participate, the wound or wart must be appropriately cleaned
and covered by the parent.
How do I find out if classes are cancelled due to weather?
In case of snow, ice, or severe cold weather, we will notify WISN (channel 12) to
broadcast a closing bulletin. We will also post any closings on our website.
Cancelled classes will be offered a make-up date. Salto Gymnastics Center, Inc will
not be responsible for errors broadcast on radio or television.
