ATTENDANCE

After School

All car rider students will be billed for the days scheduled unless the office receives notice via email or phone call by 1 PM the day of pick up.  Those students absent without notice will be billed accordingly.

Classes

Regular class attendance is very important in order to have a consistent and safe learning environment. Please make every effort to attend your scheduled class and arrive on time. You will be more likely to see growth and improvement with consistent attendance. If you are unable to attend a class because of illness or other commitment, please speak with the front office to schedule a makeup. All makeup classes must be scheduled through the office in advance. Tuition payments, credits or refunds will not be given for missed classes. This is like any sporting event or concert, if you purchased tickets in advance, the event happens whether you are there or not.

Boys – T-shirt (tucked in) and athletic shorts (no jeans) or metal snaps.

CLASSES

Classes are divided by age group and ability level to ensure that each student is with his/her appropriate peer group. Most classes meet once per week for 1 hour, depending on the level of the class. A schedule of classes has been devised to offer all ability levels at a variety of days and times. This schedule may be adjusted as needed.

Class Schedule

A current class schedule will always be available at the front desk or on our web site. Stop by or call the office to check the current availability.

Student-Teacher Ratios

To ensure the safety of both the students and the teachers and to provide the most instruction time possible, a target student- teacher ratio will be maintained. Parent & Child classes will have a target ratio of ten students per one instructor.

All other gymnastics, cheer, or tumbling classes will have a target ratio of eight students per one instructor.
