Play Time & Open Gym

Parents Night Out - Ages 5-17* +

Parents Night Out is 3 hours of fun for kids 5 –17*!  There is a brief warm-up followed by free time in the gym to work on gymnastics skills, explore the gym, go through obstacle courses, play on the trampolines, or come up with your own games!

We will provide minimum to no spotting during Parents Night Out. Parents Night Out is meant for kids to  have fun and work on skills they can already do safely.  If your goal is to learn a new skill (with a coach) or be spotted, we provide private Lessons and classes to teach and work new skills.

Why do Parents Night Out?

  • For a night with your spouse or to yourself!

Must Know:

  • Waiver must be signed for participation, Online Waiver
  • Parent/guardian is welcome to stay and watch but not required to
  • Children must be 5 years or older to attend
  • Cheerleaders are allowed at all ages, through adult, boys and girls but are only allowed to work stunting and tumbling. If performing parkour (freerunning) actitivies, you will be asked to leave.
  • *** No boys over age 14 years old unless they are students or cheerleaders due to insurance restrictions
    • This is due to the number of deaths and serious injuries from Parkour or Free-running, most commonly done by boys 14 and up. Most people in Parkour have had zero gymnastics experience and come into a gym attempting skills they aren't ready to do. That is what has led to the injuries, followed by insurance companies not covering this age group during open gym. Boys with who are current or past students will be covered in open gym because they meet the expectation of having gymnastics experience by the insurance company. Thank you for your understanding.
