Gymnastics Registration Open!

HDSA Elementary Group is excited to be offering a FREE 6 week session of Gymnastics at Schlegel's Gymnastics in Oakville. This little gym is staffed by wonderful, caring coaches who have extensive experience working with children with special needs.

Dates: Friday April 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, May 6th, 13th
Time: 4:15-5:15pm
Location: Schlegel's Gym (220 Wyecroft Rd, Unit 22, Oakville)

We are aiming to make this an unparented program. Along with the coaches from Schlegel's, there will be volunteers on hand to assist the children. Parents are more than welcome to attend with their children, or volunteer to assist with the program in general. 

PLEASE NOTE: In order for your child to participate, for insurance purposes, either a doctor's note stating that your child is permitted to participate in gymnastics (it must specifically say this) or a copy of the Atlanto Axial Dislocation  X-ray report is required. You will need to bring this note or report to the first session. If you have previously submitted this information to Schlegel's for another session, you do not have to re-submit.

To register your child, please complete the following:
1) Registration Form - Under "Season" put Spring 2016, and under "Program" put HDSA. Leave the section about payment details blank.
2) Waiver 
3) Indicate whether or not you plan to participate with your child, whether you would like a volunteer to assist your child, or whether you think your child is independent enough to participate on his/her own.

Please email the above information to Laurie Mendoza by March 1st.

*This time block has in the past been offered to ErinOak and has been run for children with a variety of special needs. Schlegel's has offered us this time slot as it is not currently running a program with ErinOak. HDSA has agreed to welcome other children who have previously done the ErinOak program into our session. There may be up to 6 children included. This will NOT impact our numbers or the coach to student ratio.

We hope to see you and your child there! Feel free to contact either of us with any questions or concerns.
