Things to know when starting gymnastics...

1. Be prepared to go upside down!

2. If you have long hair, tie it back so that it does not inhibit your vision

3. Wear shorts and t-shirt or a leotard. If your clothes are too baggy they may inhibit your movement when you are upside down

4. Do not wear jewelry. Sharp or loose objects could get caught or hurt you.

5. Many of the surfaces can be slippery, so barefoot is best.

6. For safety,  do not chew gum while doing gymnastics

7. Always listen to your instructor. Do not get on any equipment without their permission
