PHILADELPHIA GYMNASTICS CENTER - WINTER – 2018-2019
Our Winter Session begins on December 3rd and continues through March 9th. REGISTER NOW by sending the Registration Form and payment as soon as possible. If your child was a Fall Session student, WE MUST RECEIVE YOUR REGISTRATION BY NOVEMBER 10th, OTHERWISE WE WILL ASSUME YOU ARE NOT REGISTERING FOR THE WINTER SESSION. If your child is a new student, please register as soon as possible. DO NOT DELAY!! Beginning November 12th, we will make changes and process new registration forms by the day your enrollment was received in our office. We will contact you regarding the status of your registration by November 20th. Our facility is closed for regular classes from December 24th through January 1st. Our regular schedule resumes Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
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 and Continuing Education Course and all have certified background checks.
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. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR MISSED CLASSES!
On the first day of each class our students (5 years old and over) will be skill tested so they can be placed in a group ACCORDING TO THEIR PRESENT SKILL LEVEL. This gives us the opportunity to give each student more individualized attention and track their progress. At times we must separate friends because of a difference in skill levels. We appreciate your not asking to move your child to another group but encourage them to make new friends while attending class in their appropriate group!
Any student registering for our Kindergym program is eligible to add a 2nd class for a 50% discount. The additional class can only be added where we have availability. Please call the office if you are interested.
For each student's well being and safety, please arrive for scheduled class 5 minutes before class time. It is very difficult to conduct warm ups and move groups to their scheduled events when students are late for class. Our instructors are unable to assist any late arrival. P.G.C. reserves the right not to allow a student into a class if they arrive after or warm-up time has been conducted.
Refunds - less registration fee and any classes taken - will be given up to and including the third week of class. Notification by parent must be received before Week #4. Amount of refund is based on notification date.
THE “GYM STORE”
We have a well-stocked Gymnastics store with leotards, shorts, T-shirts, handgrips and lots of extras.

P.G.C. Inc. is a member in good standing of U.S.A. Gymnastics, the National Governing Body. We support Amateur Athletics and the Olympic Movement. Our programs are developed to offer a vehicle on the pathway to advanced competitive gymnastics for any female student with the talent and desire to pursue this goal. Our staff is happy to train and support Team P.G.C. - our recreational team, our Developmental Team, and our Jr. and Sr. Competitive teams - the nationally famous “Mannettes”. Entry into these programs must have staff approval. If you have a daughter interested in doing competitive gymnastics at any level, please contact our office for additional information.
