INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CARERS
We recognise the valuable role you play in encouraging and keeping your children safe in sports and how your positive influence benefits your childs’ enjoyment of the sport. We encourage all parents and carers to support their children’s achievements at FAA. In order to assist, please find a link to national guidance for parents: https://thecpsu.org.uk/resource-library/2018/parents-in-sport-week-2018-resources
At FAA you are welcome to watch your child during the training sessions to support and encourage them every now and then. If you choose to leave your child during the session, please return at least 10 minutes before the end of the lesson and let the coach know who is collecting them.
During sessions, please wait outside of the stable doors and do not enter the aerial space at any time. Be respectful of noise levels, other people in the studio and coaches. It is important that you do not try to instruct your child or any other person in the studio, this should be left to coaches who are trained and insured to run the lessons.
All of our coaches are insured and have Public Liability Insurance. Flight Aerial Arts is also insured
As a student, if you would like to get insured to protect against personal injuries we would encourage you to do so independently of FAA.
