Taking care of your leotard

They are made from delicate fabric - please only gentle hand wash using gentle soap to keep them sparkly.

Handguards

Handguards are compulsory for step 3 up.  They have increased time on the bars and are more at risk of getting painful rips on their hands which can put them out of training on the bars for some time. 

Handguards are recommended but not compulsory for step 2 to get them used to wearing hand guards as early as possible as they do take some time to adjust. 

Gymnasts for safety reasons must purchase handgrips with dowels.

The club recommends reisport hand grips, either buckle or velcro is acceptable.
