Class Descriptions & Gym Policies
ME & MOM/DAD: (AGES WALKING THRU 3 ½ )
This is a program for young toddlers who are participating with a parent or responsible adult. This program meets once a week for a 45 minute class. Additional classes per week are available. We use an educational component --- alphabet, colors, shapes, math, etc. Your children are going to love the educational style gymnastics combined with some new pre-school equipment and new musical tapes. Toddlers have a free-style period to explore the gym and then have a warm-up song to participate with the instructor. The instructor then leads the children through an obstacle course that changes every two weeks. It is a series of activities designed to improve socialization skills through physical activity. The learning of rudimentary movement skills helps toddlers create a sense of mastery over their environment, thereby increasing the child’s sense of self esteem and providing confidence in approaching social situations. At the end of class, there is a short goodbye song. The tots will receive a stamp on their hand and a coloring page to color at home. This teaches the children that their class time is over.
PRE-TINY (AGES 2 ½ THRU 3 1/2) & TINY TUMBLERS: (AGES 3 ½ THRU 4)
This is a program for toddlers who are ready for structure. This program meets once a week for a 45 minute class. Additional classes per week are available. Children must sit with the instructor and have no parental participation. The group participates in activities that develop strength, flexibility, coordination, and listening skills. The use of games, music, dance, balls, and obstacle courses, in addition to preliminary skills taught on the gymnastics equipment, creates a fun atmosphere to learn. At the end of class, they receive a stamp on their hand and a coloring page to color at home.
KINDER KIDS: (AGES 4 ½ THRU 5)
This is a program for children who are ready to start learning more difficult skills in the sport of gymnastics. This program meets once a week for a 1 hour class. Additional classes per week are available. These children still enjoy the younger side of learning, yet they are being prepped for more serious gymnastics instruction. They do not use an obstacle course, but are working on several stations used to develop skills for Olympic style gymnastics.
BOYS & GIRLS CLASSES: (AGES 5 THRU HIGH SCHOOL)
This is a program for children who desire to learn the more advanced skills in the sport of gymnastics. This program meets once a week for a 1 hour class. Additional classes per week are available. All students receive gymnastics instruction on each Olympic event. They also work on a trampoline and tumble trak. The class emphasizes the correct execution of skills, developing strength, and increasing flexibility through constant repetition of basic gymnastic movements.
Our tumbling class is for students ages 11 and older who are interested in tumbling only. Students work on floor skills, trampoline, and the tumble trak. This class is great for cheerleaders.
TEAMS: (ALL AGES)
Students in classes are evaluated by the staff. When ready, they are moved up to our Team Program.
X-cel Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond
Students should arrive 5 minutes before class. Not any earlier and not any later, although we do understand there may be some exceptions. WGA reserves the right to determine if a student is a “good fit” for a desired class.
Boys: shorts, t-shirts, sweat pants, no jewelry.
Girls: leotards, t-shirts, shorts, hair tied back, no jewelry, no pants.
A once a year (September thru August) registration fee must be paid at the time of registration for all class and team students. A spot in class will not be held until the registration fee is received. As always, you can come by the gym to register, but you can now also register over the phone with a credit card payment. This Fee is Non-Refundable.
PAYMENT POLICY & ACCEPTED FORMS OF PAYMENT
Payments for each session must be made in full prior to the 3rd week of the session or your child will not be allowed to continue in class.
Team payments are due on the 1st of each month and no later than the 15th of each month. To ensure a timely payment, we are requiring that all team members have a credit card on file. If we do not receive your payment by the 15th, your credit card will be charged on the 16th. By the 8th of each month, parents will receive an email reminding them that their payment is due and that their credit card will be charged on the 16th if payment is not received by the 15th. If you find this payment option more convenient, you may select it when registering and we will automatically charge your credit card each month. Non-payment will result in participation restriction.
For your convenience we accept credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover). This is just another means of paying your bill. You may also continue to pay by cash or check.
100% tuition refund before the first class
75% tuition refund after the first class
