2.   All gymnasts must leave their clothes at the side of the gym.  No food or outdoor shoes are permitted in the gym area.  Only drink bottles with sports tops are allowed and must be left in the viewing area. 

3.    Parents are welcome to sit inside the hall and watch the training if they wish. Use of mobile phones/cameras or any other photographic equipment is strictly prohibited.
