How and when do I register?
Check out our current or upcoming schedule to determine the best class day and time for your child’s age group. Before your child’s first day of class, submit your tuition, registration fee (due once a year), completed registration form, and signed release of liability directly to one of our office staff members.
We can also take payment over the phone, and you may email your completed registration form before the first day of class.
Can I join after the session has begun?
Registration remains open for each class, as long as there are spots available. Spaces fill quickly, so we recommend signing up two weeks prior to the beginning of a session. For those who join us after the session has begun, we prorate the cost, so you only pay for the classes you take! Please come in and give your tuition and completed registration form to one of our office staff members.
Can my child try a class before we register?
We offer a free trial class. Call the office to schedule one! We will prorate the session fee and only charge you for the remainder of the session, after you see how much fun your child has in the class. We rarely see a one-time gymnast!
None of your class times fit my schedule. How can I join?
If you would like to join the program but cannot due to conflicts, please call the office to be placed on a waiting list. If you have three or more friends that all want to participate, let us know and we may be able to create a special class just for you.
COST AND DISCOUNTS
How much is the annual registration fee?
Registration fee is $50 per family. Annual renewal will be based on the original date of enrollment.
What is Early Bird Week?
Those who register and pay their tuition two full weeks before the start of the session will receive a $5.00 discount off the session tuition.
Do you offer a family discount?
We offer a discount for the second, third, and fourth child of the family!
2nd Child – 10%
3rd Child – 15%
4th Child or more – 20%
Are there any referral discounts for referring friends to the gym?
Yes! Whenever a first-time registrant names you as their referrer, you’ll receive a $10.00 credit to your next session’s gymnastics tuition.
Does Capitol City Gymnastics accept checks?
Checks should be made payable to Capitol City Gymnastics. Please include the child’s name, level, and class day/time. All returned checks are subject to a $35.00 processing fee and subsequent late fees. Loss of Early Bird discount may apply.
Can I pay via credit card?
Yes, we accept credit card payment over the phone or in person. There is a $5.00 processing fee for all credit card transactions.
Do you offer refunds for dropped classes?
A retroactive refund for any cause cannot be granted, as it eliminates our opportunity to be able to fill the vacated class space. There will not be refunds for missed classes. Please see the make up policy.
Capitol City Gymnastics does offer refunds to students who drop a class due to an injury obtained while in class at CCG. We also offer refunds to those who submit a written release from their licensed physician, documenting medical illness.
What is the makeup policy?
We offer one makeup class per session, as long as they are scheduled in advance. Classes may only be made up in classes with open spots. Contact the office to register for a makeup class. We do not refund missed classes.
Can I switch classes?
We prefer that you stay in your class for the full session, however if something changes and the time/day will not work for you any longer, speak with the office staff to see what possibilities may be available.
Do you offer classes in the summer?
We offer three summer sessions that are typically four weeks long. If your family vacation happens to interrupt the session, we gladly offer makeup classes for any time missed.
My child may have more advanced skills than their age group. How do they progress to the next level?
New participants: Call the office to schedule a free class and skills evaluation.
Current members: Our coaches are always monitoring classes and will evaluate gymnasts ready to move up a level. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress and understand what skills they must master in order to advance, please email us to request a written skills evaluation.
How do students join CCG’s competitive team?
Each summer, we host a tryout for our competitive program. Our coaches invite students who demonstrate an aptitude for competitive gymnastics, but our tryout is open to any gymnast, age 5+. Please contact us for more information.
WHAT TO EXPECT
What should I expect on my child’s first day of class?
When you arrive, stop by the office to let the office staff know that this is your first day, and feel free to ask them any questions you have. Your gymnast can use one of the red cubbies for a water bottle, shoes, etc. Next, find a seat in the viewing area until your child’s coach calls out the name of your child’s class. When your child’s class is called, your child will go to the coach, who will introduce himself or herself, take attendance, and lead the class to their first station in the gym. Some children start out a little shy, but by the end of the class, most don’t want to leave.
Are parents allowed to watch while their children are attending class?
Yes! We have a viewing area for parents to watch their children learn gymnastics! Please do not attempt to interact with your child during class time, as this is distracting to your child and other children, too.
Do I have to stay to watch my child?
Gymnasts younger than six years old must have a parent present.
What is the student/teacher ratio?
For safety reasons, our guaranteed ratio does not exceed 6-8 students per instructor in the preschool program, and 8-10 students per instructor in the instructional classes. We try to give as much one-on-one attention as possible.
What is the dress code?
For girls, a leotard is recommended, and is what most of our participants wear. Biker shorts may be worn over the leotard if desired. If your child does not have a leotard, she may wear a tee shirt with sweatpants, leggings, or shorts. Leotards can be purchased in our office.
Boys should wear a fitting tee shirt and pull up shorts with no buttons, snaps, or zippers.
Your child should be barefoot. Please do not wear jeans, or any clothing with buttons, zippers, or dangling accessories. Hair must be pulled up so that the sides or ponytail cannot reach the eyes. For safety reasons, no jewelry of any kind (other than stud earrings) is permitted.
REPORT A CONCERN
How do I resolve a problem or concern?
If you have a problem with a coach or class, we encourage you to speak with your child’s coach. Our instructors strive to put our gymnasts first, and will do their best to resolve your concern. If you and the instructor cannot resolve your concern, contact Matt Reed, gym owner and Competition Team Head Coach, at 614-409-7655. We value your feedback and want to work with you to ensure a positive experience.
