Congratulations on caring enough to invest in your child’s future physical and mental development. We are pleased you have chosen our gym for your child. We pledge to uphold our philosophy, provide a fun and safe environment, and to raise your child’s self-esteem. Our lesson plans and curricula are designed to these ends. This handbook will help to acquaint you with our policies and programs we offer at Funtastic Gymnastics. Please discuss the safety policies with your child. Funtastic Gymnastics offers many different classes. We have toddler through preschool classes in their own space for the little ones with fun lesson plans. In the main gym we offer School Age Recreation Gymnastics, Tumbling classes, Tumbling and Trampoline, and a Trampoline and Tumbling Competitive Team. Our classes in the main gym all have progressive lesson plans. All students receive the same attention and instruction regardless of ability levels or future plans to join one of our teams. Additionally, we host the world’s greatest birthday parties on Saturdays and Sundays and our Open Gyms are a great way for your child to have some supervised fun and burn off some extra energy. If you have any questions, please drop by the office or speak with any of our coaches. Most of the improvements made throughout the years are received from our customers. Please help us in our aim to please you! Our staff is looking forward to working with your child, and allowing them to have fun in a clean, safe atmosphere. Thank you for your confidence in our programs and staff. We promise to deliver a professional gymnastics environment. We pledge to astound you! Enthusiastically, Funtastic Gymnastics Staff
Parent’s Responsibilities - Parents and children who arrive at the gym are to remain in the waiting area sitting in a chair until the instructor signals the beginning of class. Brothers and Sisters that are not enrolled in a class must remain in viewing area(including in toddler classes). Children ages 3 and under must be accompanied to the restroom and parents must be present during their class time. Please leave the coaching to us and do not talk to your children or try to help them during class. Your effort to coach them may contradict what their coach is asking them to do. Please remember that proper warm up and stretch is a crucial element to the class. Getting children to class on time is important. Also, try to keep your commitment to your class day and time, because the learning process can be achieved easier through continuity.
Parents Picking Up Late- Getting children to class and picking them up on time is important. If you are going to be late picking up your child, please give us a call and let us know. Children are not allowed to wait outside the door and must remain in a chair until a parent arrives to pick them up.
Parent Pointers- We hope that you watch your child’s class and look for overall improvement and be sure to compliment your child often. Whether your child becomes an Olympian or not is of little importance to us, however they all have the opportunity to do so. Our goal is to make them feel good about themselves and learn. The benefits of gymnastics are far greater than just learning gymnastics skills.
Change of Address/Phone: Please notify us of any change of address, email, or phone numbers.
On the Gym Floor
Except for parent participation classes, only participants enrolled in a class are allowed on the gym floor. Siblings and parents must remain in a chair in the waiting area. Siblings are not allowed on the floor in our parent participation classes.
Tuition- When you register, the spot is yours until you decide to leave. We require a 3-week written drop notice using our drop form available from the office. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month and is late if not paid by the 10th. If tuition is not paid by the 10th, a $15 late fee will be added to your account. We offer an autopay option that will run on the 1st of the month. The annual registration fee is $50 per child or $75 per family and will be drafted automatically if you are set up for autopay.
We accept debit/credit and checks (written to FUNTASTIC GYMNASTICS LLC with child’s name in the memo). There will be a $35 charge for all returned payments. We can also take payment information over the phone.
Multiple Class Discount & Family Discount- (These are great savings, don’t pass them up.) Any child who takes two classes a week receives a 5% discount, and three classes a week receives a 10% discount. Children learn much faster when they review the skills multiple times a week along with their strength, flexibility increases. A 5% discount applies for any family with two enrolled children and a 10% discount for any family with three enrolled children. A 5% discount is applied when you pay for three months in advance and a 10% discount for four months in advance (Jan-April, May-August, or September-December). Maximum combined discount is 10%.
Make Up Classes- Dependent upon availability, you are allowed to complete 1 make-up per month and the make-up must be completed within one month of the missed class. To be entitled to a make-up you must call or email to let us ahead of time to let us know you will not be in class.
Please call or email the office to schedule make-up classes. If you schedule a make-up and do not show up, your make-up class will be forfeited. Once a makeup class is scheduled it cannot be rescheduled. Missed classes can never be deducted from tuition as we are holding your spot in the class even if you do not attend. Makeup classes cannot be transferred to another child. Open gym is preferred for make-ups. If the athlete is dropped from our program, all makeups that have not yet been completed are forfeited.
Competition Team athletes will NOT be given makeups if they missed practice or for canceled classes due to competition travel.
Moving To A New Class: If you child is moving into a new level class or age division we strongly suggest that you come watch the class before you are scheduled to start so you know what to expect.
Proper attire is essential in gymnastics and helps ensure participants will be safe and comfortable while executing their skills.
No buttons, snaps, zippers, jeans, or excessively baggy clothes are allowed.
Participants with unsafe attire may not be allowed to participate in class.
Girls: A leotard with shorts or pants attached (also called biketard or unitard) is the preferred and safest attire. A high cut leotard with work out shorts/leggings over it, is also acceptable. Aside from a leotard, a fitted shirt and shorts/leggings may be worn.
Socks are required on the trampolines.
Exposed midriffs/sports bras worn alone as a top will not be allowed for participant and coach safety while spotting.
Boys: Fitted shirt and shorts. Socks are required on the trampolines. Children with unsafe attire may not be allowed to participate in class
We expect good manners and a positive attitude from participants. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior will result in a “time out” so the participant can decide if they want to continue the remainder of the class. They will always be given a second chance.
Participants must be able to stay at their designated area/station. A child running around the gym is a safety hazard for themselves and everyone around them. It is very likely that the child running around or not in the designated area will be kicked or run into by another child doing a gymnastics skill, possibly resulting in injury to both children. Please talk to your children about the importance of following directions for the safety of themselves and everyone around them.
Food/Drink Facility Cleanliness: There are no colorful drinks or food allowed in the gym. Water is the best thing for your child to drink. Please consume food outside. We pride ourselves in our gym, bright colors, excellent equipment, and its cleanliness. We clean the gym daily. Please help us keep it clean by following our food and drink policies.
