When is tuition due for for monthly classes?

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Your card on file will be charged on the 5th if payment is not made by then. If for some reason we do not have a card on file, a late fee of $15 will be assessed to all delinquent accounts on the 15th of the month. If tuition is not paid by the end of the month, your child will lose his or her place in class. He or she will not be able to attend class until the balance is paid in full.

Payments may be in the form of cash, check, or credit card/debit card. Payments may be made online, in person, or over the phone.

After School & Summer Camp Program fees are due on Monday of each week. If payment is not made by Wednesday, a late fee of $10 will be assessed. If tuition is not paid by Friday of that week, your child will not be allowed to attend the following week unless the balance is paid in full.

Payments may be in the form of cash, check, or credit card/debit card. Payments may be made online, in person, or over the phone.

What does my child need to bring to class?

Besides a great attitude and an eagerness to learn, students may bring a water bottle to class (water only). We do have a water fountain in the gym.
NO food or gum is permitted in the gym.

Can I watch my child’s class? May I drop my child off?

We do allow parents to watch in our front lobby or the observation deck upstairs. Parents or siblings not in class are not allowed in the gym area. It is also acceptable to drop your child off. Please make sure we have your correct contact information on file should we need to reach you and that you are back to pick up your child as soon as class is over.

What is the communication process between parents and the gym?

Our most effective way of communication is via email. Please provide us with your email address at the time of registration to ensure you receive all the current updates and events. If your email changes at anytime, please inform someone in the office. We will post scheduled closings in the lobby and on our Facebook page. Event sign up sheets will be at the front desk. If a situation occurs involving your child during class, you will be notified by a coach either in person or over the phone. If there is a situation regarding your account, you will be notified either in person, over the phone, or via email. All questions regarding accounts should be directed towards the front desk receptionist.

Do you offer make-up classes?

If your child misses a class for any reason, you are eligible to make that class up.  Classes may be made up two weeks prior or two weeks after your child’s scheduled class. You are allowed to make up two missed classes per month. Please let us know if your child is sick or plans to miss class so that we can mark your account with the expected absence.  It is YOUR responsibility to schedule make-up classes either online, in person, or over the phone. No drop-ins are allowed, as we want to keep the class ratios 8 to 1.

Rates are based on 4 weeks. Some months may have 5 weeks and therefore, there will not be a make-ups scheduled for missed classes due inclement weather or a holiday when there are 5 weeks. We will contact you via email when the gym is closed.

Each year we plan closings due to observed holidays. These closings will be posted in the lobby. Please inquire at the front desk as to whether or not the classes missed need to be made up.

What is the procedure for inclement weather?

During inclement weather, please check our Facebook page or call the gym before your class time to see if the gym is open. If the roads are clear by early evening, the gym will most likely be open regardless of school closings. We also encourage you to sign up for our email correspondence and receive notifications via email regarding closings and events happening at the gym.

What if I need to change my child’s class day or time?

We realize that conflicts occasionally arise due to outside activities and sports. It is perfectly fine to move your child to a different day or time as long as the class accommodates the student’s level and that there are openings in the class. Please call the gym or see someone at the front desk.

How do I know if my child is progressing?

You should see your child improving from week to week. Your child should walk away from class with a feeling of accomplishment. You should witness your child perfecting the basics, as well as learning new things. The student should gradually grow stronger and more flexible.

If you notice that your child is in a rut or bored, it may be that the student needs to be moved up in level. Your child may also need to add an additional a class, as the more time your child spends in the gym, the more they will progress. Conditioning and stretching outside of the gym is also recommended to sustain strength and flexibility and will allow your child to progress quickly.

If you are unsure of your child’s progress, please call the gym to discuss their progress or talk to your child’s coach before or after class. A coach will typically approach the parent if their student needs to be moved to a different class.

How do I know when my child is ready to move up to the next level?

If you think your child needs to move the next level or if you are interested in our team program, please talk with your child’s coach. Typically a coach will approach the parent if they see that a child would benefit from moving up.

In March we evaluate recreational gymnasts for new team members. Team coaches will be assessing each and every recreational student and will let you, the parent, know if they see that your child would make a good fit for team. Emails are sent out inviting potential students that have shown interest to consider being evaluated formally and information is given regarding dates for these evaluations.

What if my child wants or needs to discontinue his/her class?

Even though we strongly believe that gymnastics is the perfect sport, we realize that it may not be for every child. Children must have the desire to take class in order to enjoy it.

If you want or need to drop your child from class, we do require a 30 day written notice. You may send us an email or pick up a drop notice form at the front desk.  If you discontinue without notice, you will be billed for one missed month plus late fee and then automatically dropped. Please inform the front desk receptionist if you are considering dropping your child’s class.

This is very important, as we like to maintain our ratios and your child’s spot in class will be held each month unless we are notified of a drop.
