Family Registration and Discounts This annual fee remains the same regardless of the number of immediate family members involved in gymnastics classes. It is always due in September of each year. If classes are started sometime after fall, your registration is pro-rated until the following September. In addition, only one gymnast in your family pays full price. Tuition for additional children in our recreational program will be discounted.
Although it is always best to attend your regularly scheduled class, we realize that from time to time it is impossible to do so. In the event that you miss your class, you will be issued a complimentary pass to our popular Fun Gym Friday or Jungle Fun. Unfortunately we are unable to allow make-ups in another class.
Viewing and Punctuality Plea
We do not allow parents or visitors into the gym areas at any time. We offer a “wall of windows” in the lobby and a viewing mezzanine. It is important for your child, as well as other group members, to arrive on time. In addition it is necessary for parents to pick children up immediately following the conclusion of class. We ask that children remain inside the building until their ride arrives.
Student To Teacher Ratio
One very important factor that sets our program apart from most others is our strict adherence to our student to teacher ratios. We allow no more than 6 children to 1 instructor for our “littlest people” and 8 to 1 for our older recreational gymnasts.
How To Register
A parent or guardian of a new student must call the SGA office at 712-255-3547 for particulars on available class openings. Once a class level, day and time have been chosen, a registration form must be completed. Forms and fees to are required before entry into any class.
As part of “going green” we have implemented new billing at SGA. Tuition will be automatically billed to the account of your choice on the 1st of each month. This ensures an on-time payment and guarantees your child’s spot in class. Tuition is the same EVERY month regardless of the number of weeks of class. While some months have 5 classes and we do not charge extra, we also do not pro-rate for an occasional month with only 3 classes. Tuition is not pro-rated for missed classes and no refunds will be issued for cancellations due to inclement weather.
Once your child is enrolled at SGA she/he will be enrolled until we are notified otherwise. This means that all students enrolling in the school year schedule will remain enrolled through the end of May and summer students will be registered until the summer session ends in August. SGA reserves a spot for your child until we are notified otherwise. Telling your child’s teacher (rather than filling out the appropriate drop form at the front desk) is NOT considered proper notice.
If your child wishes to discontinue participation in class, you must personally complete an SGA withdrawal form and return it to the front desk prior to the 15th of the month. Failure to properly notify SGA will result in continued tuition charges. Tuition is due for the entire month in which a drop occurs and accounts will be charged accordingly.
If the Sioux City Public Schools dismiss early or cancel due to snow or ice, gymnastics classes are cancelled as well. Late starts and early dismissals due to heat do not affect our classes. Cancellations will be announced on local television and radio stations.
