Safety & Progressions

Instructors are USAG Safety Certified and safety conscious but by the nature of the activity gymnastics carries a risk of minor or serious injury. Skills and activities are taught slowly, carefully in a step-by-step progressive manner.

Activities are set up in small group instructions with multiple mini stations to allow for appropriate spotting techniques and still progressions.

Equipment is adjusted to the size of each gymnast to provide the best learning experience. Parents and children should be aware of the risks involved: read and review the safety rules, abide by the gym rules and policies and accept full responsibility for their actions.

Top Flight has the right to restrict any activity that we consider unsafe.
