Moms & Dads, for the sake of your child as well as all of the other children, please arrive on time! Being late is far more difficult on a child than what many parents realize. The warm up period at the beginning of class is very important for every child to participate in. It is done for safety and preparation to prevent injury. If your child is late, they will have to do warm up activities before they can begin regular gymnastics class activities.
Parents are not allowed in the gym unless they are involved in a parent child class. Siblings or other children are not permitted in the gym unless they are enrolled in a class. Older siblings are not allowed on the floor during parent-child classes. Please use the observation area provided.
All viewing must be done from the observation area on the balcony. The observation area is unique in gymnastics in that it requires that observers follow the gym’s safety rules. Please refrain from gesturing, signing or correcting your child while they are on the gym floor or equipment. Please do not attempt to coach or speak to your child while in class. This interferes with your child’s attention on the task and on the instructor’s teaching. This distraction can also be dangerous and result in an injury to your child. Parents who wish to photograph or videotape their child must notify an FGC staff member first. Flash photography is not allowed.
Parents, please keep children not participating in class with you and under your supervision at all times.
If you leave the gym during class, please return on time and come into the lobby to pick up your child. Gymnasts are not allowed to wait outside for rides.
Gymnasts must wait in the lobby or balcony area until the instructor calls the class to the gym floor. No one is allowed on the floor without an instructor.
Tuition is due upon enrollment with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Fees are prorated based on the number of classes remaining in the term. The membership fee is not refundable.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If at anytime you are not satisfied with your class, we will refund the tuition for the remaining classes.
Your tuition pays for a class spot, REGARDLESS of ATTENDANCE. As a courtesy, FGC offers make-ups when doing so does not jeopardize the safety or integrity of the class. Make-up procedures vary program to program depending on space, equipment and teaching ratios. Make-ups are a privilege and FGC reserves the right to refuse to offer make-ups for any class.
