Advanced and Open RegistrationIn order to limit class size, we must have advanced registration. First priority will be given to current students during advanced registration. Advanced registration begins during the 7th week of the current eight week session. Classes will be filled after this time with new and returning students during Open registration on a first come first served basis. Gymnaworld reserves the right to change or cancel a class based on enrollment.RegistrationAt Gymnaworld, sessions consist of eight weeks. Parents must complete the registration form, waiver, and interests survey and return them to the office before the first class. When re-registering for another session while currently enrolled, it is not necessary to fill the forms out again unless there has been a change in the information we collect such as mailing address, etc.. Re & Pre-registration for the next session may be done at anytime but generally should be done during Advanced Registration. Students currently enrolled receive first priority for class times and days during Advanced Registration. Classes will be filled with new and returning students after this time on a first come first served basis. Early enrollment is your assurance that you have reserved your child’s class day and time for the session.Payment PoliciesTuition must be paid at the time of registration prior to class participation. A $3.00 fee will be charged if not paid by the start of a session, and a $5.00 late fee will be charged if not paid 15 days after the start of the session. A parent may set up an alternative payment / installment plan that fits their budget. All payments must be prompt and paid as agreed. To set up an alternate payment plan, please see Brenda Martin, our office manager. Accepted forms of payment are shown below.Make-up PolicyIt is always better for the gymnast to attend their regular class; however, we do allow two (2) make-up classes per session. In addition, any classes missed due to special events and/or holidays observed by Gymnaworld may be made up. Make-ups must be scheduled through our office manager Brenda in the office during the session in which they are missed. Make-up classes not made up during the eight week session or forfeited. Any make-up class that is scheduled and missed is automatically forfeited. Make-up lessons are scheduled according to level - not instructor. No credit or monetary reimbursement are applicable for classes not made up. Please schedule make-up classes from the 2nd through the 7th week of the session. You may lose your make-up if you wait until the last week of the session to schedule it.Refund PolicyAll fees paid to Gymnaworld are non-refundable. In the case of a transfer to another program within Gymnaworld, injury or an extended illness, please contact the director.

Parents are still financially responsible for this thirty (30) day period whether the athlete attends practice or not.
