Drop off/Pick up Procedure
For your convenience, we offer a "drop off and pick up" system for students aged 6 and older. You just drive up and stop at the front steps (passenger side closest to the building) to drop off your kiddo before class. The front desk staff will assist our students into the viewing area as needed. Then after class, you can swing around to the front steps again and our staff will be standing outside with our students being picked up to assure safe transfer back into your car.
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.
We ask that if your child is younger than 6, please stay and view, but of course ALL are welcome to stay and watch!
No one other than our students and staff (and 1 parent for the monkey, baby ninja and special needs classes) are allowed in the GYM area. All others are asked to remain in the viewing area or the lobby.
For the safety of your child and other students, please refrain from coaching and/or talking to your child while they are participating in class, which could distract your child and other students from paying attention to their instructor.
Smoking, vaping and drinking alcohol 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 students 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.
Make-up classes are offered up to 30 days after an absence. We offer 1 make-up class per session as long as a class with space is available. We do not offer make-up classes for missed make-up classes.
**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 by the account holder. 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 spot in the class. ALL of our classes have recurring monthly tuition, excluding drop-in tumble clinics, open gym/open play and special events.
**Autopay** works like a "subscription"
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. You will automatically receive an email receipt when your Autopay Card on file is used.
Each class is $23. We bill each month (as stated above) for the number of calendar days that your class meets for any given month. For this reason, you will see that your monthly tuition bill will fluctuate slightly according to the calendar month. (Please note, our billing rate for Advanced Girls and Green/Blue Ninja classes is $33/class)
Weather Closure and Related Emergency Announcements
Severe weather or power outages, 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. We will make a decision about afternoon and evening classes by 2:00 pm. You will find the official word about weather closings on Facebook page. We will also send an email to your portal account and primary email address, so you'll want to be sure that your email is up to date. Announcements might also be found on HGA voicemail at 586-954-3300. It is your responsibility to check your portal messages, email, our FB and/or call the gym prior to your scheduled class. (Keep in mind that if we lose power, our phones will be down as well, in which case, we will rely heavily on our social media for outgoing communication to you)
If your Autopay card on file does not process and payment cannot be made, your enrollment will be cancelled if our efforts to contact you via your primary phone and your primary email fail in rectifying the problem. A second email will notify you that due to non-payment, your child has been dropped from the class. At that point you may 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 not limited to collection of return check fees.
Request to Withdraw
You must submit a "Request to Withdraw" form by the 25th of the month prior 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. A doctor's note will also be a requisite to return to action.
Annual Membership Fee
There is a nonrefundable, annual family registration fee of $35 to begin or continue membership with our club. (Occurs annually in the month you first registered with HGA)
All Recreational, Preschool, & Ninja Classes
Open Gym for ages 6 and up
Email is our primary mode of communication to our families. Check your email or portal daily for billing notifications and/or any other important information that is sent out.
HGA offers a discount for households with multiple children in gymnastics classes. Our goal is to provide great service at an affordable cost. When more than one household family member registers, you receive 10% off each additional child. This is a great savings for our customers!
“Word of Mouth” advertising is our greatest tool for growth at HGA! To "thank you" you for referring us to friends, we would like to offer $10 off your next month’s tuition for each new customer that has registered and paid. To receive this reward, simply have the family mention your name as a referral when registering for classes. Thank you in advance for spreading the word about our programs!
If your child is exhibiting any cold or flu-like symptoms or has any kind of contagious issue, please keep them home and call the desk at (586) 954-3300 to schedule a make-up class. We thank you in advance for your help in keeping our facility as safe as possible.
