    Yes, you are very welcome to watch the trial. Please make your way up to the watching area.
  • What happens after the trial? Can I watch every week?
    Unfortunately, we do not offer watching your child every week. We have watching 4 times a year, you will be notified of the watching dates by the office.
  • Why do you not offer watching every week?
    From our experience, children do better in their classes if they do not have watching each week, many children do not like people watching them and often get very distracted.

    All children need to wear their Backflip T-Shirt, which you receive within your registration pack. All girls in our advanced and squad levels are required to wear our Backflip Leotard. Boys are required to wear the Backflip T Shirt. Please ensure your child is wearing tight shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms to go with their t-shirt.
