Please be sure your child arrives at least 5-10 minutes ahead of class time to ensure they can use the bathroom, wash their hands, change into their gym clothes, put their hair up and remove any jewelry. Please feel free to use the bathroom in the gym or lobby as you help prepare your child for class. While we ask that all children use the downstairs locker room, their are two extra changing places in the team locker room upstairs for your use (if available). If you have paid in full and have signed all the current paperwork, there is no need to visit the front desk; we will take attendance during class time.
Water and Food at Cobra
We do have a water fountain in the gym, but we encourage water bottles to avoid long lines at the water fountain. Students can fill their bottles once they enter the gym for class time. Please do not bring any crumbly snacks to our lobby!
Halloween Parade- Cobra Cartwheel Clan
We will be marching in the parade again this year as our famous cartwheeling skellies! If your son or daughter is 8 years+ and can do an excellent cartwheel (safe for the road) we invite them to join us! We will hold one practice on October 21st from 12noon-1pm. The parade date is October 28th. Please email or leave your name at the desk if you are interested in receiving more information.
We do have openings on our beginner teams, ages 6-13, please inquire at the desk if your daughter has an interest in joining our amazing team. We are looking forward to a spectacular year of growth and success!
Coaches & Staff
We are so happy to have an entire staff of returning coaches this season! Coaches, Ali, Gail, Lori, Rommy, Christine, Kayla, Topsy, Julia, Dan and Keegan will be joining me for another wonderful year of coaching excellence! We are excited to welcome Kathy St. Pierre, Bob Abbott and Bonnie Watson to our coaching staff. Bonnie is a gymnastics coach, yoga instructor & contemporary dance choreographer from Wisconsin who has moved to Poultney to pursue her masters degree. Kathy has been a gym owner for 38 years and after selling her VT gym, chose to join our coaching staff! Bob will be a guest coach throughout the season, mainly working with team on bars and tumbling. Back at the desk is Audri, Annie and Chandra! Please be patient with them as many of the questions you ask need to be fielded by a coach; email cobra directly if you want to set up a phone meeting with any of our coaching staff.

We are all looking forward to a fabulous year ahead with workshops and new classes. We have two new Facebook pages for ease of communication this year! Our first is Studio Serpentine at Cobra and our second celebrates our tribal bellydance troupe and can be found at Sisterhood of the Silk Road. Please like the pages so you can stay in touch with our specialty workshops, performances and and studio schedule changes!
Cheers to the year ahead! Coach Shelby and all of the Cobra staff
