FAQ for Recreational programs
Frequently asked questions about our Recreational (Rainbow, Gymbee, Tumbling and Ninja) programs
- Where do I park?
We have parking in the front of the building as well as the back.
If you park in back we do have a back entrance into the gym. It is very easy and convenient.
Please do not park along the lawn. Accidents have occurred because of this and cars get blocked in. Gym World is not responsible for damages.
- What do I do when I arrive?
Always stop by the front desk and highlight your child's name when you arrive for class. If you are new to class, let us know and we can walk you to where you need to go and answer any questions you may have.
- What should my child wear to class?
-Leotards are great. Younger children and Tumbling class participants that do not yet have a leotard may wear shorts and t-shirt. The tight spandex shorts/pants are acceptable alternatives to a leotard.
-The gymnasts typically do not wear shoes or socks.
-Hair should be pulled back in a pony tail. With all the jumping and cartwheeling the kids do, they don't want to have to keep brushing the hair out of their face all practice!
- What is the absence policy?
We allow 1 make-up per session for an excused absence. An "excused" absence is one where you call in ahead of time (24 hours). If your absence is not excused, we will not be able to accommodate a make-up.
-Make-ups must be scheduled ahead of time. We will do our best to try to accommodate the day/time you wish for a make-up class, but do to class sizes that may not be possible.
-Once a make-up class has been scheduled, you may not re-schedule. If you miss your make-up class, you may not schedule another.
-Make-ups must be scheduled during the same session you scheduled your absence.
-An alternative to scheduling a make-up class is to come to an Open Gym as a make-up. You do not need to call ahead for Open Gym. Just let the front desk staff know when you arrive. This applies to excused absences only.
-League Team does not have make-up classes. You may use 1 Open Gym as a make-up.
- How do I enroll my child into the next session?
Your child is automatically re-enrolled into his or her same class for the next session. If you wish to un-enroll for the next session, please let the office staff know at least 1 week prior to start of the new session or you will be charged for the session.
- What about snow days / calamity days?
We typically do not close during snow days or follow any school's closing. However, if we do feel it is in the best interest of the customers to close, we will send an email, post the closing on our website, Facebook and Gym Worlds App.
A make-up class or day will then be made available to those affected.
- Are siblings allowed on the gymnastics equipment?
No. This poses a danger to the child as well as other gymnasts and is disruptive to the class. Anyone using the gymnastics equipment must have a signed (or electronic waiver upon registration).
-If your $40 annual family registration is due during the current session, it will be automatically charged on the due date.
-Payment is due in full upon class registration unless prior arrangements have been made.
