Each child has her own learning speed and style. During the first few months your child’s progress depends on lots of hands on attention. Your child will most benefit from either being alone, or with 1 to 2 other students. To help your child achieve their full potential it is mandatory that we have your cooperation with and support of any decisions about whether your child should be alone, with one partner or with two partners. We are constantly evaluating what is and is not working for your child and are therefore able to customize her learning experience to best support her. We reserve the right to pair up your child with other partners as we see fit.
Scheduling is done on a monthly basis and should be resolved at least two weeks before the start of the month. Although time slots are often given on a first come first serve basis, we will not give away your regular time slot without first consulting you to see if you would like to keep that time slot. We prefer to establish consistent time slots for your child from month to month. If your child needs a flexible schedule from month to month we require that you request the changes before the 15th of the preceding month.
Students in regularly scheduled lessons must request to be removed from the lesson or to move from multiple times per week to only one time per week by the 20th of the month prior to when the change is to occur. Without proper notice we cannot always fill the space or find another time for the student’s partner(s). When a student is removed from a time slot that student, most likely, will not be able to re-join that time slot since we will fill the space with another student.
We reserve certain time slots each month for the upper level classes. If your child is invited to, and would like to participate in, one of the upper level classes we expect your child to make it to every class throughout the month. It is imperative that every student in the class be there so the class can progress together. Students unable to keep up with the class will not be allowed to participate in the class during the following month.
Classes and lesson time slots are scheduled in three month increments. Tuition for each month of the quarter will be the same. Holidays and gym closures are taken into account when calculating tuition for each three month session. Over the course of three months there is usually an extra week, which accounts for the holiday closures. Therefore the average number of any weekday is 4 per month.
Example: There are 5 Mondays in January with no closures. There are 4 Mondays in February and the gym is closed for one Monday, Presidents day. There are 4 Mondays in March with no closures. Which means that over the course of the three months there is an average of 4 Mondays per month (5 + 3 + 4 = 12 12/3 = 4). Therefore we calculate tuition for each month based on the average of 4 lessons per month and you pay the same amount every month.
Another example: There are 5 Mondays in September and the gym is closed for one Monday, Labor Day, therefore classes are held for 4 Mondays in September. There are 4 Mondays in October with no closures and there are 4 Mondays in November with no closures. Which means that each month there are 4 Mondays so we calculate tuition for all Monday classes based on the average of 4 lessons per month.
Cancellations that are requested at least 24 hrs in advance may qualify for a make up session that will be held once per month. Make-up sessions are only held once per month, which means that you can only make-up one cancellation per month. Refunds are never given for cancellations. Students should minimize cancellations for the benefit of their training. Students have partners in class and it is difficult for your child’s partner if your student is excessively absent.
If your child becomes sick or injured and has a doctor’s note explaining that the child must not attend their gymnastics lessons for two or more weeks; we will discuss with you how we will handle the situation on an individual basis. All others will be handled with our normal cancellation policy as stated above. Children with non-major injuries can often still come into the gym and accomplish a lot by working on skills that do not require use of the injured part of their body.
Please take your scheduling as serious as Elite Tumbling does. Our policy is strict because we require a commitment to the program and your child’s partners. Excessive cancellations are hard on everyone involved and will not be tolerated.
There are no refunds on any cancellations. There are no refunds if an athlete withdraws at anytime throughout the month.
Gymnastics leotards are required for girls
Fitted pants or shorts and shirt for boys (or boys gymnastics outfit)
Every child should come dressed in their gymnastics outfit with clothing over the top of their leotard and leave dressed with pants and a shirt/coat, weather appropriate. During winter months each child should come dressed with a snug fitting sweat suit over the leotard.
Every child should wear shoes until they enter the gymnastics area; dirty hands and feet are not allowed on the gymnastics floor, mats and equipment. If your child has dirty feet they will be required to clean them before they can start their warm-ups and lesson.
Hair must be tied back and out of the athletes face, a low ponytail is a best, no bows or barrettes thick hair tie that holds the hair in place. (It is very distracting to stop in the middle of lessons to fix hair that was not properly prepared before coming.)
It is mandatory that each athlete wear wrist guards at all times, unless specifically asked to take them off by the coach (wrist guards are an excellent way to prevent injuries and future aches and pains). To prevent loss or misplacement wrist guards must have the child’s name written on them.
No jewelry or watches jewelry must be removed before class for safety reasons
No socks are allowed, for safety reasons
Gym bags are required and help your children keep their equipment organized and safe
Every parent or guardian is required to read, understand and sign a liability waiver for each child enrolled in one of Elite Tumbling’s programs. No child will be allowed to use the facility without a signed liability waiver. Elite Tumbling’s employees cannot provide advice or explain the liability waiver to you. Do not sign the liability waiver if you do not understand and accept every part of it.
Our equipment is properly maintained and regularly inspected to ensure the equipment is in safe working order. Any equipment deemed unsafe by Elite Tumbling will not be available for use until repaired or replaced.
All students must follow the equipment instructions or they will lose the privilege of using that equipment.
No athlete is to use the equipment without supervision from a coach.
- One at a time
- Bare feet only
- Be in Control
- Only try tricks that your coach asks you to do
- Treat each piece of equipment with respect, as if it was your own.
While we are pleased to have student support it can also put undue pressure on a student. Please inform me if more than two people will be coming to watch your student.
We are trying to create a friendlier, less competitive and more positive environment than you will find at any gym. This requires everyone’s cooperation and effort. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who does not enhance the positive environment of the gym. Gymnastics should be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved, including the parents and coaches.
Please observe the following code of ethics:
- Be on time (children should arrive 5-10 minutes early to stretch – under the parents supervision)
- Always be respectful to the coach
- Be friendly with other parents and children in the gym
- Only positive comments are allowed
