Please take the time to read EACH of our policies. They help maintain a high quality program.
1. Payment Options:
a. Monthly (auto-pay)-
This is an on-going program, so your child is automatically re-enrolled in the next month. If you choose this
payment option, we will bill your account between the first and the fifth of each month. When signing up for
automatic payments, your child's annual registration fee will be automatically applied annually. We will send an
email reminder. In order to receive this reminder, you MUST keep a current email address on file and you MUST
be subscribed to our email updates. If you are not receiving email updates and you would like to receive them,
please update your email address with us.
Whenever you need to make a change (changing classes, times per week, or discontinuing the program) to your
billing, it is your responsibility to let us know before the 15th of the month prior to the month this change should
take place. This way we have plenty of time to change your bill in our system, and staff our classes appropriately.
For your convenience, we have “Change Class Forms” that you can fill out and turn in to the front office. We
cannot accept verbal out notices. We MUST receive this notice in the front office and in writing by the 15th of the
month! We do NOT offer refunds.
b. Semester (three months)-
For this payment option your child will NOT automatically be re-enrolled in the following semester. The entire
semester is paid for in advance. To hold a spot in a class, semester tuition must be paid two weeks prior to the
start of the new semester.
Fall: September, October, November
Winter: December, January, February
Spring: March, April, May
Summer: June, July, August
2. Missed Classes:
Your tuition pays for a class spot, regardless of attendance. As a courtesy, TGA offers one make-up class per
month when we have space in the appropriate class and when doing so does not jeopardize the safety or
integrity of the class. We need 24 hour advanced notice to schedule your make-up. Walk-ins will not be
allowed. We allow 30 days following a missed class to make-up the class. If a student drops from a class, all
make-up classes will be immediately forfeited.
Some holiday closing will result in a make-up class, while others will not. You can refer to the closing page on
It is not required that you notify us of an absence in advance, but we do appreciate it.
3. Gymnastics Attire:
Although we highly recommend leotards for the girls in our program, gymnasts new to the sport, boys, and our
youngest students (Pre-School and Parent and Me Classes) can wear athletic clothing. Athletic gear includes
shorts or warm-up pants and a fitted t-shirt. Tights and/or socks should NOT be worn. Also, whenever possible,
please tie back long hair and leave all jewelry at home.
4. Parking Lot & Lobby:
During peak times, the parking lot is crowded. Please take into consideration that our “students” may include
young children. Drive slowly and carefully both in and around the parking lot. Do not take a chance on your
student running to and from your car.
Please be mindful of other customers waiting in the lobby. We cannot allow gymnastics, running, or rough-
housing in our lobby. We do have toys and books for siblings to use, but please put them away after using
them. Children should not be left alone in the lobby. If you are running late, please call us 757-493-3600.
