Extreme Weather or Unexpected Interruption of Classes

If the gym must cancel classes due to extreme weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, the missed lessons will be added on to the end of the teaching year in June. No refunds for lessons missed due these reasons will be given.

 

Substitutions

The gym reserves the right to provide a substitute coach if the regularly scheduled coach is ill or otherwise unable to coach classes. If a coach is ill and the gym cannot arrange a substitute any missed classes will be made up.

 

Dress Code

We are a fun, family environment and we want our athletes to be comfortable and safe.  For this we do not allow thin straps or crop tops at the gym.  Gymnasts should plan to wear a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt that can be tucked.  Cheerleaders should wear shorts and a t-shirt that can be tucked in. Failure to wear appropriate gym apparel could result in students being asked to sit out the class. Repeated failure to wear required apparel could result in termination of lessons. Students are not permitted to wear jeans or shoes worn on the street or outdoors, to any class. For safety reasons, all athletes are not permitted to wear jewelry. Long hair must be tied back.

 

Class Attendance and Lateness

Please ensure that your athlete arrives to class on time.  In order to participate in the recital, students must be enrolled in classes for a minimum of three months to ensure the material is learned.  Students must attend a minimum of four classes leading up to recitals, parades, or competitions.

 

Parent’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events

It is the responsibility of the parent or adult student to be aware of all gym activities, such as viewing days, recitals, extra classes, and dates the gym is open or closed. The parents will give the gym their email address to email all such notices home. The gym will post all such notices on the “Booster Club” board or the bulletin board as well as emailing notices home. It is the parent’s responsibility to regularly check their email and these boards to ensure they are informed. It is the responsibility of the parents or adult students to inform the gym of any e-mail address change, address change or telephone number change.

 

Care of Students

The gym is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Parents should ensure that they are there to pick their child up 5 minutes prior to the end of their class in case the coach needs to speak with the parent. Students are not to be left at the gym for excessive time before or after class.

 

Injuries

Parents, legal guardians of minor students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on gym property resulting from normal gymnastics, cheer, or dance activity or any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after class time.
