RULES AND POLICIES

  • What are the changes to class procedures due to covid-19? All students must have a parent sign the updated waiver form in regards to the pandemic. Along with this, all students will be temp checked upon entry of class and asked a series of questions. This information is kept privately here in the office and is not shared publicly or with any governing body. We are keeping this log to help us with contact tracing if we should have to inform parents of a student diagnosed with covid. No names will be shared, we will only inform them of a possible positive result so that we can help prevent further spread within our facility and community. Students are being asked to hand sanitize between stations and upon entry and exit of the gym. All touched equipment will be sprayed after use. We are cleaning and disinfecting every two hours with deep cleaning being done on a regular basis as well  Coaches will be wearing face coverings whenever the six feet of distance is not possible (unless spotting- please see policy under coaches qualified). Any parent that enters the gym is required to wear a mask at all times. This is a fluid situation and things can change on a daily basis if needed.  THERE IS ONLY ONE PARENT ALLOWED IN TO THE MINI STARS CLASS.

  • FOOD AND DRINK:  Absolutely no food or drinks (with the exception of your water bottles) allowed in the gym.

  • OBSERVING CLASS:  You are always welcome to observe your child’s class from the waiting room.  We do ask that you refrain from communicating with them during their class.  This can be very distracting to all of the participants if parents are conversing with their child during their instructional time.  With the preschoolers we ask that you do not invite them over to the door during water breaks as it makes the transition time longer and leaves less time for instruction.  If your child needs you or if we feel that your assistance is necessary we will come and get you.  This is not allowed at the current time, due to restrictions this cannot be done until further notice. When the weather allows we will also keep our garage door open which will allow you to view in.  AT NO TIME CAN YOU MOVE THE SCREEN OR SHOULD YOU TALK THROUGH THE SCREEN TO ANY OF THE CHILDREN AS THIS WILL BE A MAJOR DISTRACTION.  THANK YOU!

  • WAITING ROOM:  Please be respectful of others in the waiting room.  This is a shared space by all. For your convenience while you are in the waiting room, we have free wireless internet available to you. We ask that you please watch your other children in the waiting room so that they are courteous to others as well. At this current time there is no waiting room area in which to congregate. We will have tv viewing and possible separate phone app viewing until the restrictions change.

  • ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR ATHLETIC CLOTHING: Girls should wear either a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt that fits.  Boys should wear shorts and a t-shirt.  Please do not wear buckles, snaps, or zippers.  NO JEANS. Students may not be able to participate in class if they are not wearing proper attire.

  • ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO EVERY CLASS: Please label with your name on them.  We do have water for sale if needed.  We DO NOT provide cups. At no time should any child share their water bottles!

  • ALL GIRLS AND BOYS WITH LONG HAIR MUST PULL IT BACK INTO A PONY TAIL OR BRAID:  This is a safety issue when working on the equipment.

  • STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE GYM WITH JEWELRY:  with the exception of stud earrings (only one pair).  All jewelry should be removed before class.  This includes string bracelets and anklets.

  • CLASS ABSENCES AND MAKE-UPS:  Classes are run in 8 week sessions and the cost for this is broken down into two monthly payments. Please notify us within 24 hours of an absence from class.  We will do our very best to schedule a make- up class for you.  All make-ups must be done before the session ends.  If you do not attend the make-up it will then be forfeited. Due to Covid restrictions, times will be posted for make ups so that we can continue to keep class sizes smaller. Please understand that you are responsible for payment for entire session once you have signed up for it.

  • DISCONTINUATION OR CHANGE OF CLASS:  If your student needs to change a class or will not be returning, a two week notice needs to be given to their instructor.  We will make every attempt possible to place your child into another class. This will depend on the number of students already in the class.  We will consider that your student is continuing onto the next session unless you notify us before the end of the current session.  Remember you are responsible for payment of this class until we are notified that your student will not be returning.

  • PAYMENTS, REFUNDS AND RETURNED CHECKS:  Payment is due on the first of every month. After the 10th day of the month, payments will be automatically deducted from a checking account, debit or credit card. Your child will not be allowed to participate until payment is made.  There are no refunds on any tuition or registrations paid.  All returned checks are subject to a $32.00 NSF fee.  Continued returned checks will result in cash only or credit card payments.

  • INCLEMENT WEATHER:  In the winter months we will make every attempt to keep classes as scheduled but sometimes we will need to cancel for everyone’s safety.  If you are questioning whether or not we have class please call the office at 603-536-1992, like our page on Facebook, or check the website www.topgungymnastics.com. We will always send out an email as well letting everyone in our system know of any change of class.  Please make sure to write your email down on the registration form!

  • DISCIPLINE:  While every attempt will be made to redirect the children, there are times when other techniques are necessary.  Top Gun utilizes the “take a break” approach.  We will ask children who have been spoken to several times or are engaging in a manner that is unacceptable or dangerous to take a break.  The first step in that they will need to take a break and miss a turn, the second time they will miss and entire rotation and the third they will be asked to sit on the bottom red step for the remainder of the class.  If behavior continues to escalate we will ask that you take them home.  Very rarely will the discipline every get that far but we want you to be aware of our methods.

  • PRO SHOP: Please see a staff member for assistance.  All prices are listed next to the Pro-Shop.

  • PLEASE BRING ANY QUESTIONS AND/OR CONCERNS TO OUR ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY SO THAT WE ARE ABLE TO ADDRESS THEM.
