What to wear and bring

To feel comfortable when participating in circus classes, please wear stretchy shorts or tights and a t-shirt or singlet. Leotards and tights are the most comfortable for aerial classes. We experience the full splendour of summer and winter temperatures in our sheds, so please dress appropriately for the weather.

Bring a water bottle. Long hair should be tied up. Some classes may require flat-soled shoes. NO jewellery or zippers are to be worn and chewing gum is strictly forbidden.

Personal items should be left in the cubbyholes in the reception area. Be sure your students’ personal items are marked with their name. Lost property is taken to the op-shop at the end of each term.

Spaghetti Circus Participant Code of Behaviour

Participation Guidelines

  • Show respect to yourself, others and the equipment

  • Only use equipment under the supervision of your coach

  • Tie back long hair

  • Remove all jewellery before class

  • Leave shoes and socks in the foyer

  • Wear appropriate clothes for your circus activities – no zips

  • Ask your coach before going to the toilets and take a buddy

  • Train to the best of your abilities and enjoy the challenges!

If disruptive or disrespectful behaviour does occur in circus classes, the following procedures will be followed:

  • Coaches will remind the participant of the guidelines and will ask them to modify their behaviour.

  • If the behaviour continues, the coach will remove the participant from the class activities for a short time.

  • If the inappropriate behaviour continues, parents will be notified to collect their child from the shed. The Director of Circus will arrange a meeting with the participant and parent to discuss what action can be taken to solve the problem.

Arrival & Pickup

Students should wait for their class inside and be ready to start at their scheduled class time. Please pick up your student promptly after class and inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student. Students are to wait inside the building. During peak times the parking lot is crowded, so remember that our students include young children.

Speed Limit

Please drive slowly and carefully; the speed limit in the Showground is 10km/h. It is a shared area with animals, kids and vehicles. There is a three-strike policy from the Mullumbimby Showground board. On the third complaint of excess speeding, your vehicle may be unable to enter the grounds for two weeks.

Membership & Insurance

All participants are required to pay an annual $100 ($65 for preschool classes) membership and insurance fee, which includes personal accident insurance and membership with Gymnastics Australia. The fee also covers the cost of costumes, props and rehearsal times. The fee is paid on joining and expires 31 December of the same calendar year. Spaghetti Circus members receive a discount on in-house tickets and merchandise.

Class Fees

Fees must be paid prior to the commencement of term to confirm your child's place. When enrolling mid-term, the payment amount will be prorated over the number of classes remaining in the term.

Withdrawal from Class

Parents must notify the school to withdraw from class. Notice is required in writing by email before the commencement of the term. If a student stops coming to class without notification, then that student’s account will be charged for the remainder of the term.
