All Students will be charged a membership fee. This fee is good for one year and will be billed automatically each year the student is enrolled. Membership fee includes special events, awards & perks. Gymnastics/Tumbling students have a $35 annual membership fee that is due at the first time of registration and on that anniversary date each year following. This fee is non-refundable.
Registration is on a first come first serve basis. Class enrollment is open 15 days prior to the start of the upcoming session. Your space is reserved for the session, once your payment is made. Sessions are eight weeks in length. We recommend that you enroll your children as soon as possible, to avoid your favorite class filling up. Tuition is non-refundable once the session has begun.
Participating in our auto pay program, provides students with a guaranteed spot in the class of their choice. However, a separate authorization form must be completed and signed to join auto pay.
ASSIGNED CLASS INSTRUCTORS - Each class has an assigned instructor for the full eight week session. Requests for a class taught by a specific instructor may be submitted at the front office up to two weeks prior to an upcoming session. If available, students may be transferred into another class during the current or for a future session. Substitute instructors will be assigned as needed for a sick instructors.
ADVANCING/CHANGING CLASS LEVELS:
Your child will be automatically enrolled in the same class every month, unless you notify the office otherwise. If your child advances in levels, it is your responsibility to notify the office as soon as possible to initiate the change in class enrollment and automatic registration for future months.
WHAT TO WEAR
Boys must wear tucked in T-shirts and elastic waist shorts/pants. Girls are required to wear a leotard or unitard. NO chewing gum or dangling jewelry. Stud earrings may be worn. Dangling or hoop earrings may NOT be worn. Bracelets and rings may NOT be worn. Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face so that is stays up for the entire workout, INCLUDING BANGS. Girls should not wear bows or other large hair ornaments that may cause discomfort during activity. All students will be barefoot during class. Personal items should be left in cubbies or with parents. LEAVE JEWELRY ARTICLES AT HOME. Stars Gymnastics facility's staff will not be responsible for ANY items that may be lost or stolen. Be sure your student's personal items are marked with their name.
Students must enter the facility with their Parent/Guardian. Do not send your child into the Stars Gymnastics facility without you. We ask parents to remain with their child until after the class is called out onto the floor and attendance is taken. If the parent chooses to leave during the practice, return on time or early to pick up your child. We understand that emergencies and accidents do happen. Please inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student. If late pick up happens frequently, Stars Gymnastics will charge $1.00 per minute late pick up fee, which must be paid before future enrollment.
Remember that our students may include young children. Drive slowly and carefully through the parking lot. Walk your child into the facility. Do not take a chance on your student running to and from your car.
Events such a camp, TGIF, Parents Night Out, Movie night or anything else that is going on outside of normal business and class hours will require a parent to physically enter the facility to sign the participant in and/or out. These events will usually require an additional registration fee. Non-Members may participate in many of our special/closed events but are required to have student information forms and waiver completed before enrolling or attending. Children without required documents submitted will not be allowed to participate and may not be able to remain in the facility.
Every class begins with a warm up period. This warm up time is important and necessary for every student. It provides physical and mental preparation for class and when performed completely, can help prevent injuries. Therefore, if your child arrives late and misses any portion of warm up period, he/she WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO JOIN THE CLASS. You may call for a make-up class if you are running late.
Students are provided with a minimum of 8 classes per session. Each student is allowed ONE make up class per session for classes missed for their own personal reasons. Instructors take attendance at the beginning of every class. It is the parents responsibility to schedule a make up class after an absence. Make-Up classes cannot be scheduled prior to the missed class. Students must first be marked absent. Make up classes are offered every 6-7 weeks, on a Sunday. Students may not use another regularly offered weekly class as a make-up. Students must enroll in a make-up class, prior to attending.
Make up classes must be scheduled within two weeks and taken within eight weeks of the missed class or will be forfeited. All make up classes will be arranged by the office (not by instructors). Make up credits may NOT be used to discount tuition. A missed scheduled make up class may not be made up.
OTHER SAFETY RULES:
All students may use our storage pockets and cubbies to store clothing and shoes, and then wait in the designated areas until the instructor calls them for class. Students may not be in the active practice area or play on the apparatus at any time prior to, or after their class.
• Students must arrive for practice already dressed in the appropriate class attire. (see other side for information on attire)
• Parents, guests, and siblings are required to wait in our observation area. Enrolled students ONLY under the direct supervision of an instructor are allowed in the practice area.
• Since our seating area is limited, we ask that no strollers be brought into the gym. Baby carrier seats are acceptable but must be placed in a safe location.
• You may bring toys, books or other activities to keep your other children busy during class time. The lobby is not to be used as a play area. All spectators must remain in the designated seating area.
