At Hi-NRG, your child’s safety matters most to us. Gymnastics is a fun sport and a great way to stay in shape, but there is always a small risk for injury. At HI-NRG our primary concern is for the children’s safety.

Our coaches are highly trained to look after our students. If a student is observed doing the movements incorrectly, coaches will step in and gently correct. If a young gymnast is feeling uncomfortable with a skill, or if they have a concern we are always there for them.

One element of safety that we have put into practice is learning each individual student’s name. It may sound simple, but we think it’s very important because when we are in the gym with multiple students it’s important that each individual feels seen.

Our coaches are trained to look students in the eyes and say their name to ensure they are understanding the guidelines and to let them know they are part of the team. Above all else, knowing and using your child’s name shows that we care about them and how they are feeling.

Also, we work hard to create a friendly environment between coaches and kids to make them feel it’s a safe place to practice and be themselves. We teach them to always warm-up and stretch before training. It’s also imperative that young gymnasts only practice on padded floors, never on a hard surface. We make it clear that we want our students to tell us if they are uncomfortable with a gymnastic move. If our gymnastics girls are comfortable communicating with all of our coaches then there is less opportunity for injury or accidents.

No matter if they are beginners or advanced students, young girls always train with a coach. Gymnastics girls are encouraged to use the equipment only one person at a time and to wear the appropriate gear that won’t get caught on any of the equipment – this includes jewelry.

The development of strength and flexibility is another safety aspect because the more resilient and flexible our young gymnasts are, the less probability for them to get injured. If girls stretch properly and can hold their weight with no difficulties this usually means their body is capable and will help them avoid pain and accidents.
