What is the Gymnastics Ontario fee?
The Gymnastics Ontario Fee is an annual non-refundable mandatory fee covering insurance and administration of programming. It is applied once during the training year – July 1 to June 30.
What is your policy on refunds?
Refunds are offered for enrollment cancellations within the first week of classes. Refund requests must be made in writing with one week's notice to receive a refund for the balance of classes. Refunds are subject to a $20 administration fee. The mandatory Gymnastics Ontario Fee is non-refundable.
What if the weather is bad?
We rarely cancel classes, but in the event that this needs to happen, we will post weather updates under the “News and Events” section of our website and on our Facebook page. Please note: we are unable to schedule make up classes for those that are cancelled due to inclement weather.
Do you offer makeup classes or refunds for classes missed?
Make-up classes are not available in order to maintain coach to student ratios. Refunds are not issued to missed classes.
Do you offer trial classes before registration?
Unfortunately, due to insurance and liability issues, we do not offer trial classes. Each athlete that enters our gym is required to pay a yearly Gymnastics Ontario Fee, for insurance and liability reasons, along with their registration. Without having paid this yearly fee, children are not allowed to enter the gym in case of an injury or accident.
How do I know when my gymnast is ready to move up?
Gymnasts are continuously being evaluated during their classes. Each gymnast will progress at his or her own rate. We move up our students when they individually have mastered the skills for that level.
How can my child move to the competitive team?
Our competitive team is selected through an individual assessment and invitation only. Our coaches keep a sharp eye out for students who demonstrate an aptitude for competitive gymnastics. For specific information please feel free to speak to contact the office who will point you to the appropriate individual.
