Rules and Policies

Attendance

If you plan to be absent please let your child's coach know in advance by sending an email to mgrhythmicacademy@gmail.com. If your child is absent (for any reason) and you would like a makeup please email us and we offer a different class as a make up. If you are unable to attend the offered make ups, MG does not take responsibility and the class is forfeited- there are no refunds.

Junior Olympic and XCEL students-Excessive absences can result in removal from competitions and/or team. Please see our Team Contract for details 

Payments

A one time $90 registration fee is standard for all new students, this fee is non refundable.

Tuition payments are due monthly and can be made via check (made out to MG Rhythmic Academy and labeled with your child's name and class and the month it is for), cash (in a labeled envelope), PayPal (mgrhythmicacademy@gmail.com) or Credit Card through your JackRabbit portal. Tuition is due on the 15th of the previous month (ex Feb tuition is due Jan 15th). When you initially enter your information on the registration form, your card will not be charged automatically. Payments with CC can be manual or scheduled on AutoPay (15th on the month). Manual payments must be made by you before the 30th of the month to avoid a $25 late fee. If you choose to discontinue classes, simply let us know before the 1st of the new month. No refunds are offered after the 1st of the new month.

Summer Camp payments are due in full by  May 30th. Payments made before the Early Bird deadline (April 15th) are fully refundable minus a 20% deposit up to April 30th. No refunds will be granted after April 30th. Any Payments made after the Early Bird Discount (April 15th) are non-refundable without exception.

Student Expectations

Students class placement is subject to coach approval taking into account age and ability level based on a trial class. If at any time our owners/teachers feel that a student has been incorrectly placed, they will be moved into the appropriate class. Students will progress through levels at the discretion of our coaching staff. Students must arrive on time. We strongly suggest arriving a few minutes early to get settled and prepared for class. Late arrival is disruptive and hinders proper warm up and stretching, not just for your gymnast, but for all in the class.​

Dressing Rooms: Please note that only students should be in the dressing rooms. Food is not allowed on the carpeted areas of the dressing room, please keep food to the table only. Please keep food mess-free (No Sauces or soups that could spill and cause staining). Girls are responsible for their own cleanup.

Attire: Students hair must be pulled back fully (preferable in a bun but not required for recreational classes- Team must have hair in a bun for all practices) *see dress code at the base of each class page for more info. Students should attend all classes in correct attire which allows the teacher to see proper alignment. No loose fitting or baggy clothing.  *See dress code page for more info*

Parent Expectations:

Viewing: We ask that parents please stay within the designated parent viewing area. Parents are not allowed on the carpet or to linger along the sides. Please no knocking on windows, opening doors or waving to get your child's attention during class as it can be distracting and dangerous for anyone on the carpet.

*Please see our COVID-19 protocols, which are in place temporarily, for updated policy on viewing classes*

We expect all parents to treat any and all MG staff with kindness and respect. Our staff may enforce rules and we expect that all students and families follow these requests. Any disagreements should be handled via email or by scheduling a meeting. 

No parents should be inside the dressing room at any time. While we understand that parents may need to help children get dressed, please take into consideration that to the other children in the dressing room, you are a stranger. Unless you have undergone the extensive background checks and testing provided by USA Gymnastics and are affiliated with our club via USA Gymnastics, we cannot allow parents to wait in the dressing rooms. Any parent who needs to help their child dress/undress can do so in the bathrooms available in the facility.

Video/Photography is strictly prohibited. While you are videoing your child, many other children may appear in the background. Help us protect the privacy of all our students. Pictures and videos of daily training can be seen on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Our coaches are trained in ensuring all photos contain only children whose families have consented to photos/videos as well as checking the backgrounds for any students in not so flattering positions.

No parents should be inside the dressing room, wandering the hallways or inside the gym at any time. Any parent not conforming to these rules will be asked to leave.
