Each with different goals, but all for enjoyment of our sport.

Our program consists of 12 or 13 week sessions to insure progress for all students. PGC continues to develop interesting, healthy, and fun programs!

MISSED CLASSES
P.G.C. offers a make-up time for any class a student cannot attend. Please call the office and schedule all make-ups.  Please inform P.G.C. if missing a scheduled make-up class prior to that class or it will be recorded as your make up.  A make-up class may not be carried into next session unless the absence occurs during the last two weeks of the current session. 

REFUND POLICY
We will refund class fee, less registration fee and any classes taken, up to the third week of classes. There are NO REFUNDS after the third week of class attended.    

PROGRAM STRUCTURE
On the first day of each class, our students 5 years old and over are skill tested so they can be placed in an appropriate group. During each class session, skills are advanced as to the student's abilities. All students will not progress at the same rate. Our main purpose is to teach correct gymnastics with a basic foundation for improvement. Safe gymnastics is an important goal in our program. Our Preschool program offers instruction for motor skills to develop body coordination as well as beginner gymnastics skills. Students are placed in groups that are age appropriate and according to their skill levels, as per our testing program. This gives us the opportunity to give each student more individualized attentionand track their progress. At times, we must separate friends because of a difference in skill levels. We appreciate you not asking to move your child to another group, but encourage them to make new friends! If you request your chil be with friends, we cannot guarantee the same progress.

P.G.C. INSTRUCTORS
All of our instructors are U.S.A. Gymnastics (governing body of our sport) certified and trained.  They have completed and passed the U.S.A. Gymnastics Safety Certification Test.
