Gym Policies

Gym policies effective from November 2022

Please read the important policy information below registration, payment, withdrawal, and general gym policies. If you have any further questions please let us know at tumblekidswatertown@gmail.com.

In general, our schedule and policies will closely follow those of Watertown Public Schools. This applies in cases of vacation weeks, weather closures, and holidays.

 

Membership Fees and Program Policies

All registrations must be done online at tumbleKidswatertown.com.

A class requires a minimum of three students to run. If a class is under-enrolled, we will refund the tuition in full but would be happy to work with you to find another convenient class time for enrollment.

Registration is rolling and on-going; we do not have start and end dates to our sessions, so new students are welcome to join in most recreational classes at any point throughout the program year!

Registration for most of our programs and all of our classes require a non-refundable, annual membership, which has a fee of $60 per program year.* This is a once-annual fee per family and will not be charged again if siblings are enrolled, or if a student takes a break several months then returns to class.

The recreational program year is September 2023 - June 2024.

*Early Bird Registration deal - for September 2023 classes, the $60 registration fee for your membership will be waived from May 15th - June 15th , 2023! After June 1st all clients will be charged the $60.00 registration fee.

 

Registration and Withdrawl Policies

At the time of initial registration, a membership fee (if applicable and not yet paid for) and the first month's payment will charge immediately. Therefore, September monthly tuition is charged at the time that you register for September program start. Students who choose to enroll into available classes at a later start date will be immediately charged the prorated cost of the remaining classes in of the month. Initial sign up is the ONLY month that may be subject to proration.

Our monthly prorated tuition reflects school vacation week closures, holiday closures, snow day closures, and missed classes due to illness.

Once enrolled in a class, your enrollment renews automatically monthly and you will be continually enrolled for the remainder of the program year. Monthly billing will auto-charge on the 1st of the month unless we are notified via this withdrawal form by the 25th of the previous month of intent to withdraw.

Monthly tuition is non-refundable.

Any accounts not paid in full by the 1st of the month will result in your student being dropped from his or her class and a reinstatement fee of $25.00 will be charged prior to re-enrolling.

Any declined credit cards will incur a fee of $5.00. This fee will become $25.00 for any payment that is late or is unable to be processed through after the 2nd of the month.

Please note that team billing and team commitment withdrawal policies differ. Please see the bottom of this page for more information.

Make-up Class Policy

We do NOT offer make-up classes based on our already prorated monthly class tuition.

In the event we have more than one snow day in a month, we will issue your Sawyer account a $15.00 gift card that can be used on your next month's tuition or a future special event.

In the rare instance of missed classes due to severe injury or health concerns, we will discuss options on an individual basis.

Fun Days/Kids Night Out/Clinics/Events

Liability

Like all sports and physical activities, gymnastics and use of gymnastics equipment holds a risk for injury, including minor bumps and bruises and more serious injuries like broken bones and head injuries. New student registration requires a signed acknowledgement of risk and waiver of liability and a class enrollment form. These forms MUST be done online at the time of registration!

Child will not be allowed to participate in any of our events or activities until such forms are completed and turned into the office.

Attire and What to Bring to Class

We recommend a leotard with optional shorts and/or tights or leggings, or for our beginner classes, a snug t-shirt and shorts. No skirts, dresses, jeans, zippers, baggy clothes or jewelry/fit bits are allowed.

We require all children to have their mid-sections covered and therefore do not allow 2-piece leotards. All children should be barefoot in the gym.

Hair that is shoulder length or longer must be tied back in a hair elastic.

Students must bring their own water bottle to and from class, which they are welcome to refill as many times as they need. We do not provide water bottles or cups for water as it is not sustainable.

Nut-Free Zone!

We have a large number of children with severe nut allergies, including potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions. Complete avoidance of peanut butter and nut products is the only way to prevent these children from having an allergic reaction. We ask that no type of food containing peanut butter and/or nut products be brought into our facility.

In addition, we have a policy of not sharing food and we request that this be reinforced with your children. As we strive to provide a nut-free environment please recognize that our facilities are used by many people and therefore we cannot guarantee our facilities are completely nut free. We do appreciate all efforts to make our facilities as safe as possible for all who use them.
