For the health and well-being of the children and staff of SCGC, we feel it is vital to maintain a strict wellness policy. Please keep your child at home if:
You suspect he/she may be sick.
Your child has a cold or a fever.
Your child has ringworm or any other communicable/contagious disease.
We will be more than happy to schedule a make-up class once your child is better. We encourage our San Clemente Gymnastics Club staff who are likewise sick or unwell to stay out of the gym to avoid spreading germs.
Pick Up and Drop Off Policy
Parents do not have to stay for the entire duration of their child’s class time. If your child arrives early at the gym, a parent or a guardian must be present with them at all times until the child’s class starts. The SCGC staff will not be responsible for looking after your child before or after class time. In addition, please advise your child to wait inside the gym, either in the front or back lobby. For the safety of your own child, waiting outside the gym will not be permitted. Furthermore, parents cannot take responsibility for another child even if the families are “good friends.” If your child is going to be under the care of another parent or guardian, please officially notify our office. Otherwise, SCGC will not allow your child to go with any other person aside from yourself.
Older and younger siblings are not allowed to wait or participate inside the gym during classes. Older and younger siblings are not allowed to wait in the lobby without a guardian. Parents are not allowed to bring newborns in a carrier, car seat, or stroller inside the gym. They can wait in the lobby with another guardian or parent. ***
If your child misses a class, please contact the office to schedule a make-up class. Only students who are currently enrolled in the program are eligible for make-up classes. Make-up classes must be completed within 90 days of date of absence from class. If you are going to miss your make-up class, please notify the office within 24-48 hours. Otherwise, missed make-up classes will not be eligible for rescheduling for whatever reason. Make-up classes are non-transferable. We do not issue credits or refunds for missed /unattended classes. **Our policy states that students are not entitled to make-ups once enrollment has been suspended. **
Students are encouraged to wear proper attire, suitable for unrestricted movement. Girls should wear a leotard to classes. Shorts may be worn over the leotard. Boys should wear a non-baggy T-shirt and shorts without buttons, zippers or snaps on their waistbands. Long hair should be pulled away from the face and jewelry should be removed prior to class. Bare feet, no socks.
Students are not allowed on the gymnastics floor or equipment before or after class. Parents, siblings, and friends are not allowed on the gymnastics floor at any time. No gum, candy, or other food is allowed in the gym.
If you wish to stop your child’s enrollment, please provide written notification to our office personnel on or before the 25th of the month prior to the month you wish to stop. If the office does not receive your written notice on or before the 25th, then your child’s spot will be held for the next month and tuition will be charged accordingly. Please notify an office personnel, not the coach. Notification from a child is not an acceptable method of communicating that enrollment is ending. Tuition charges are submitted by the 25th of the month. If you suspend your child’s enrollment after the 25th, there will be $20 late fee. If you do not want to incur the late fee, you may opt to enroll your child in the 1st class of the next month, pay the cost of the class, and then end enrollment after the 1st class. **Our policy states that students are not entitled to make-ups once enrollment has been suspended. **
