Location and Directions
Our new address is Al Ferdous Complex, Building 2, Shop #3, on Al Wasl Road.
The gym entrance is through the front door, on the Al Wasl Road.
Underground parking is available by the mall. The first 90 minutes are free. Each additional hour is charged at 5 Dhs per hour. To access the underground parking please drive to the backside and enter the basement parking of Building #2.
There are also a limited number of free parking spots available at the backside of the building as well.
The front area is reserved for drop offs only.
Payment and Liability Waiver
We are excited to announce that credit card payments are now available and as a result cheques will no longer be accepted. We will also accept cash payments. (Please bring the exact amount). Online payments will be available in term 2 for your convenience.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST SIGN THE LIABILITY WAIVER BEFORE A CHILD CAN START THEIR FIRST CLASS.

The waiting area for parents is limited and will likely NOT be available in the future. Again, our priority is to provide the best possible gymnastics training experience for the students. Parents can be a distraction, which can lead to potential injuries.
Open classes will be scheduled in the future, where parents can sit in on a practice to see how their child has progressed. We will provide a schedule for you later in the term.
Leotards and T-Shirts
Leotards for purchase and the free T-Shirts will be available shortly.
What to Wear and Bring
Please wear a leotard or tight-fitting sports clothes
Bring a water bottle
Long hair should be tied back in a pony tale
No jewelry should be worn
Toilets inside the gymnasium are for students ONLY.
Parents and siblings can use the retail toilets to the right (woman’s toilet) and left (men’s toilet) of Building #2 (our building). Ask management or admin for directions.
In case of injury, parents will be called regardless of the extent of the injury. Please inform us of any previous injuries or issues that may be a hazard to your child’s health while participating in sport.
Photographs may only be taken by the Shams Team for distribution as agreed in the Liability Waiver. All other photos/videos will be prohibited during practices. While we appreciate that every parent wants to capture these special moments in their child’s development, please consider that other students may also be captured in those photos/videos. Some parents, understandably, do not want photos/videos taken of their children without their consent.
Coffee Shops / Restaurants in the Area
After dropping off your child, you may want to explore the surrounding area. Although we are the first company to open its doors in the Al Ferdous Complex, there is a huge range of cafes and shops in the surrounding area. Just a few minutes walk from the Gym is Al Wasl Square. Across the road is a Choitrams and Co-op and a little further south on Al Wasl Road is the Park n Shop Complex.
If you find any great places, we hope that you share your findings with the rest of our gymnastics family on social media, as supporting the community at large is what we aspire to do.
