OUR INSTRUCTORS
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.

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. THERE  ARE  NO  REFUNDS  FOR MISSED CLASSES! 

CLASS STRUCTURE
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!

PRESCHOOL
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.

LATE ARRIVALS
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. 

REFUND POLICY
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.
