Policies

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.

Missed Classes
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.

Tuition
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.

On-going Registration
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.

Discontinuing Enrollment
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.

Inclement Weather
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.
