[04/10/19]   Per our Winter Weather Policy and District 206 cancelling school, there will be no recreational or team classes on Thursday, April 11th. As of this time, we are planning on the Spring Showcase running as scheduled for Saturday.

Winter Weather Policy:
If School District 206 cancels classes for the day, or lets school out early due to inclement weather, LAG will not hold classes that day.

This is for the safety of our gymnasts and our coaching staff and will make it easier for families to know what to expect. All closing information will be posted on our page and will also be sent to KXRA radio.

Classes will not be rescheduled. If we need to cancel more than one class per session due to poor weather, an open gym pass will be issued to you for the missed class(es).

Please know that your gymnast's safety is our top concern and that all decisions are made with this in mind. If classes are held and you are concerned about the weather conditions, please use your own judgment as to what is best for your family.
