All students must arrive to class on time. Punctuality is a life skill that enhances productivity, demonstrates respect and lessens stress. Classes begin with a comprehensive five to ten minute stretch routine. Proper stretching improves flexibility and helps prevent injuries.
Students must be promptly picked-up after class dismissal. All students are required to remain in the viewing/waiting area until they are picked up by an authorized adult.
If, for any reason, the student is not picked up within five minutes of class dismissal, one of the two following options will apply:
1. When a Riverbend Gymnastics’ employee is available to do so, they will wait with the student at the gym for a fee of $5 (five dollars) per every 15 (fifteen) minutes.
2. When a Riverbend Gymnastics’ employee is not available to wait at the gym for the student to be picked up, either Coach Adrianne or another employee will take the student home with them at a charge of $100 (one hundred dollars).
Any student displaying symptoms of illness, including but not limited to the following, should not be brought to class:
5. Sore Throat
6. Chronic Coughing
Any student who has head lice or nits (eggs) will not be allowed to participate in class. Lice infestation is a nuisance and health issue, and Riverbend Gymnastics wants to keep others free of this bug.
Riverbend Gymnastics coaches and other employees WILL NOT administer medication to students.
ATTIRE AND GEAR
Exposure of the midriff is not permitted. No sports bras or “hot pants” may be worn without outer clothing. Please ensure your gymnast is appropriately attired in a leotard, unitard, or shorts with a shirt that can be tucked in. Excessively loose clothing, or attire with a skirt or fringe attached, is not permitted; this creates a safety hazard for the gymnast and the spotting coach.
Hair must be securely pulled back and off the face. Large barrettes, bows, hairpins, dangling earrings (studs may be worn), necklaces, and rings will interfere with tumbling and gymnastic activities and must not be worn to class.
Students must bring their own water bottle. Clean, filtered water is provided, however, Riverbend does not supply cups for the students.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO
Unless express written consent is given, it is strictly forbidden to obtain photos or video of a student, by a person who is not that student’s legal guardian or caretaker. Anyone obtaining photos or video of a class or student (who is not their legal charge) without prior permission will be removed from the premises.
A non-refundable membership fee of $25.00 for one child, $35.00 for two children and $40.00 for three or more children from the same family, per session is due at the time of enrollment. The fee is waived for active and retired military and law enforcement.
Riverbend Gymnastics tuition is calculated by the session. Tuition is due in full on the first day of each session. We accept checks and cash only.
TUITION PAYMENT PLANS
Payment plans are available to those students who have attended Riverbend Gymnastics for at least two consecutive sessions. All payment plans must be paid in full by the eighth week of the Fall and Spring Sessions, and by the fourth week of the Summer Session.
When two or more children from the same family are enrolled during the same session, a 5% (five percent) discount is given on the total cost of the family’s tuition for that session. Active and retired military and law enforcement receive a 10% (ten percent) discount on their family’s total cost of tuition.
It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide Riverbend with a valid email address associated with the PayPal account they wish to receive the refund through. Tuition payment refunds are given only according to the TERMINATION policy and procedure as follows:
Termination is not retroactive; it is effective on the date Riverbend was notified of the termination.
Riverbend Gymnastics has two methods of terminating a student’s enrollment.
1. Self Termination: A student may withdraw from a session by notifying Riverbend Gymnastics in advance of the termination date. When a student withdraws from a session, any refund due will be based on the unused portion of the tuition. Refunds will only be issued for those self-terminating prior to the fourth week of the Summer session and eighth week of the Fall and Spring sessions. If the student withdraws from enrollment after the fourth or eighth week, a gym credit will be established based on the unused portion of the tuition. The credit may be used for any future tuition or private lessons. The credit will expire one year from the date of termination.
2. Gym Termination: In its sole discretion, Riverbend Gymnastics reserves the right to terminate any student’s enrollment at any time, for any reason. Any refund due will be based on the unused portion of the tuition.
CLASS MAKE UP
Missed classes may be made up at any time during the same session, but must first be scheduled with the front office.
Riverbend Gymnastics does not offer make-up classes for holiday closures as they are not included in tuition fees. Holiday closures are posted on our website at the top of each session page.
