Make up classes
What are makeup classes and how do they work?
We offer one make-up class per session, regardless of how many classes were missed.In order for the makeup system to work, we must have at least 24 hours notice so we can offer the spot to another student to use as his / her make-up time. The missed class must be noted in advance. Notifying us by email is preferred. Those that fail to notify the office will not be allowed to make up their mussed class. Drop-ins are not allowed for make-up classes. Tuition must be paid in full to be eligible for a make-up class. All classes are counted for once scheduled.
Can make-up classes be used to prorate tuition? What about holidays?
Holidays are fixed into the monthly tuition and do not
receive make-up classes. Our scheduled breaks are Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring,
and Summer breaks. Scheduled holidays will be posted in the gym, on our
website, and on our phone message. Please check with the office if you have any
questions regarding holiday breaks. We do not pro-rate the monthly tuition for any missed classes.

How do I determine which class is right for my child?
Age and ability are the two factors in determining which
class is right for your child. Our classes will be age-based if they are
first-timers to gymnastics. If they have gymnastics experience, then their
ability along with age will determine the right class for your child. This is
why we offer free-trial classes.
What should I do if I need to change my child’s class?
Please notify the office of any and all class / schedule
changes to ensure that there is availability for your child.
How will I know when my child is ready to move to the next level?
Our classes run on an individual bases, so as soon as the
coaches feel that your child has met all of the requirements to move to the
next level, they will move them up. If you would like one of our coaches to
assess your child outside of class, please schedule a private lesson with one
of our coaches.
