**For the remainder of this Covid-19 crazy year HGA is “hoping for the best but planning for the worst”. So, while we’re hoping that we can continue to offer classes safely within our facility, we are very aware that a “stay at home” order could be re-instated. In that event, we want to assure you that we are ready to facilitate our classes virtually and immediately should we be closed by government order. If our staff is allowed to be in the building, we will conduct live classes at their regular times. If we are not allowed in our building, we will have class videos ready to air that will be in your portal each week. When the order is lifted, the classes in the building will resume, same class, same time—in a seamless transition. As always, thank you for choosing HGA!
A Note to Parents
Due to current Covid restrictions on the number of people we can have in our facility, we kindly ask that you drop off your child if he/she is 6 years or older if you are comfortable in doing so. If your child is younger than 6 or you would feel more comfortable accompanying your child, we ask that there be only ONE adult per family in the viewing area. In addition, we ask that all other visitors or siblings do not accompany the one adult unless they will be actively taking a class at or near the same time. Fewer visitors in the building allows for more kids to be able to participate in classes. We thank you for your help in this matter. Be sure to keep your contact info in your parent portal current.
Please also keep in mind that HGA is not equipped to supervise your children more than 10 minutes before or 5 minutes after class. Your punctuality is greatly appreciated.
Viewing is currently extremely limited because of Covid-related government restrictions on the number of people we are allowed to have in the building. For those who choose to view, be advised that if our viewing area reaches capacity we will prioritize those with 4 year old or younger children. The remaining viewers may be asked to stand in the lobby or wait in their car. If you do stay to view, please remember these important rules:
No one other than our students and staff (and 1 parent for the monkey class) are allowed in the gym area.
For the safety of your child and others, please don't offer any distractions to the class such as coaching/talking to your child.
Smoking and vaping are not permitted on our premises, even in our parking lot. Please be sure to leave all vape paraphernalia in your vehicle, we would hate for it to fall out of a purse or pocket and end up in the hands of a little person.
In accordance with SafeSport, we must ask that the only photos or videos that you take ONLY have your OWN child in them. It may not include other children or our coaches without expressed consent from HGA management ahead of time.
Hair must be pulled out of the face and off the shoulders in a ponytail or bun for girls or guys with shoulder length hair or longer.
No jewelry except small stud earrings in ears only.
No shoes or socks
Ninjas: shorts and ninja shirt
Gymnasts: leotard for girls, shorts and fitted t-shirts for boys.
MASKS must be worn at all times EXCEPT when doing a gymnastics skill that would be dangerous to do with a mask on. In that case, the gymnast must be 6ft from others and when finished with the skill, return their mask to the proper placement.
As a precaution, if your child is not feeling well, please keep them home. If your child must miss due to illness, we will provide him/her with a virtual make-up class upon request, just call us at (586) 954-3300. (if you have questions about Covid-19 symptoms, refer to our "Covid-19" protocol page.
Weather and Related Announcements
Severe weather or other natural hazards, although rare, do at times force us to close. It is our policy that if Clintondale Public Schools close, Hunt's Gymnastics will close for morning classes and early afternoon classes (including open play (not currently offered due to Covid). We will make a decision about afternoon and evening classes by 2:00 pm. You will find the official word about weather closings here on our website and on our Facebook page. We will also send an email to your primary email address, so you'll want to be sure that your email is up to date. Announcements can also be found on HGA voice mail at 586-954-3300. It is your responsibility to check your email, our website and/or call the gym prior to your scheduled class.
Continuous Enrollment System
Under our continuous enrollment program, all classes will automatically re-enroll every month until a "Request to Withdraw" form has been submitted. This guarantees your child their spot in the class they know and love each month, no need to risk forgetting to re-enroll and losing your class. ALL of our classes have recurring monthly tuition, excluding drop-in tumble clinics, open gym/open play and special events. (open gym/open play and special events are not currently offered due to Covid)
All HGA families are required to keep a valid Visa or Mastercard on file. Monthly fees and any remaining balances for the upcoming month will be automatically charged to the card on file on the 28th of each month. You may pay cash, check, or use another card before the 25th, so your Autopay card on file will not be charged. We accept only Visa or Mastercard. You will automatically receive an email receipt when your Autopay Card on file is used.
If your Autopay card on file does not process and payment cannot be made, your enrollment will be cancelled after we contact your primary phone and your primary email to notify you that a new card is needed. A second email will notify you that due to non-payment, your child has been dropped from the class. At that point you MUST RE-ENROLL with payment to attend next month's classes. You will also be asked to update your Autopay card before an enrollment or payment can be accepted. PAYMENT SAVES YOUR CLASS SPOT! You are responsible for all cost incurred for collection of any deliquent payments, including but limited to collection of return check fees.
Request to Withdraw
You must submit a "Request to Withdraw" form by the 25th of the month to discontinue the continuous enrollment class and payment for the upcoming month. This gives the gym an adequate amount of time to contact wait-listed students for the class and make adjustments for coaching needs. We cannot drop a student mid-month and pro-rate the tuition. Your class ending date will be the last class date of the current month.
There are no refunds. We can offer a credit if a written request for credit is turned in to the front desk. Credits will only be considered for athletes who have an injury or illness that keeps them from participating in class. For the credit, your athlete will need a doctor's note and miss 75% or more of the month. A doctor's note will also be a requisite to return to action.
Annual Membership Fee
There is an annual family registration fee of $35 when registering for classes at HGA. ( Occurs in the month you register with HGA)

If you have a balance on your account, you will receive email notifications reminding you that autopay is approaching. Check email daily for any notifications.
HGA offers a discount for families with multiple children in gymnastics classes. Our goal is to provide great service at an affordable cost. When more than one immediate family member registers, you recieve 10% off the second (and additional) child. This is a great savings for our customers!
Word of Mouth advertising is how we see great growth at HGA! To reward our customers for their “great word” we would like to offer you $10 off your next month’s tutition or session to all new customers that have registered and paid.
