1.Classes are payable by Direct Debit using Go Cardless. The same payment is due every month and is calculated pro rata so there is no change in fees when the club is closed for up to 16 days at Christmas, 10 days at Easter and all Bank Holidays. (Pre School classes are also closed for the last 2 weeks in August). Closing Dates can be found on our website and in the gym.
2.Parents of those attending Leaping Lions, Satellite and Squad classes must register with British Gymnastics. You can do this using the following link https://www.british-gymnastics.org/membership. The cost is £11 for Pre School and £17 for other gymnasts and must be paid directly to BG. These members will need to renew their insurance every year at the beginning of September. Gymnasts of these classes MUST be members of British Gymnastics to participate.
3.General Club Gymnasts and Courageous Cats do not need to register with British Gymnastics as they are currently covered by our block insurance.
4.In addition to your monthly subscriptions, Stortford Gymnastics will collect a one-off annual fee after your first class as follows:
- a.General Gymnastics £21.50 (includes block insurance fees)
- b.Leaping Lions Pre School £19.50 (includes certificates & badges, but insurance payable to BG)
- c.Courageous Cats Pre School £4.50
5.Your annual membership pays your admin fee and entitles you to members rates on birthday parties and holiday workshops
6.If your child decides to leave Stortford Gymnastics, then you must provide 4 weeks’ notice by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not cancel your Direct Debit, for a number of reasons:
- a.Your DD may cancel but you may still have an open mandate resulting in charging you again
- b.You will waive your ability to come along to your final classes as the system will assume you are a non-member and your child’s name will not be on the register
- c.A £10 admin fee will be charged if this process is not followed, due to the extra admin required
7.Payments for all other goods and services (such as clothing) can paid using your Go Cardless account or by cash in a named envelope.
8.Refunds cannot be given for classes that are missed for any reason.
9. Stortford Gymnastics reserve the right to cancel classes due to exceptional reasons such as severe weather or power cuts and will always consider the safety of the children. No refunds will be due.
1.Children must always be appropriately dressed to be able to participate in the lesson. i.e leotards/T-shirt/shorts/leggings. Tighter garments are better as loose clothing tends to expose skin when children are upside down. Club kit is not compulsory though is available to purchase at reception.
2.All jewellery should be removed. Taped ears are allowed under our insurance policy for 6 weeks after piercing. After that, your child is not covered by our insurance. Long hair must be tied back so it is out of the eyes, with no shoes and socks. We also ask for no denim, zips, buttons or hoods.
3.Coaches reserve the right to ask children to leave the gym if they feel that their behaviour is putting themselves or others in an unsafe situation.
4.Gymnasts must not leave the gym during a lesson unless they have permission from their coach.
1.Parents of children under 6 should stay at the gym whilst the children are in their lesson. Parents of older children are welcome to stay or to leave the premises. Please note that there may be times when a coach specifically requests that you stay or leave to aid their progress.
2.Parents should not enter the gym whilst lessons are in progress, unless they are invited to do so by a Coach. If invited to enter the gym, shoes must be removed.
Coaches are British Gymnastics members and therefore adhere to their Child Protection Policy. This requires that all coaches are DBS checked, are suitably qualified and attend regular First Aid courses.
These terms and conditions are also displayed in the gym. If any changes are made, these will be highlighted on the display board.
