Registration: Recreational classes begin each year in August and run year round. Students can join at any time with the remainder of the month prorated and are automatically enrolled for the remainder of Sonshine’s recreational year. There is a $35 non-refundable registration fee due per child upon enrolling. This covers the cost of registering and maintaining your child’s records. The fee is prorated February through July.
* Upon completing registration, our staff will manually add the appropriate registration and tuition fees to your account and charge your credit card within 2-48 hours.
Tuition Payment Policy: Sonshine Gymnastics requires each family to keep a credit or debit card on file with our office. Tuition is based on a monthly payment schedule for the year and is to be paid in advance by the 1st of each month. You may still pay your tuition via cash, check or credit/debit card, but, if payment isn’t received by the 1st, we will charge the card or debit card information listed in your customer account. Keep in mind that balances cannot be carried over from month to month.
* Monthly tuition is based on a 4 week month and statements will be e-mailed to you. There are 48 weeks in Sonshine’s recreational year (August—July). No additional charge is assessed for months that offer five classes, it always evens out. In months where holidays, gym closings, snow days, etc… affect the schedule of classes, tuition is not reduced. Our scheduled gym closings are: November 21-27, 2016; December 24, 2016-January 6, 2017; and July 3-9, 2017.
Discounts: Discounts are offered for enrolling multiple children into our recreational program. The first child is full price, 2nd and 3rd children receive 20% off, 4th child is free and 5th child is 50% off. A multiple class discount of 20% is offered for children taking multiple recreational classes.
E-mail address: By keeping a current e-mail address on file you will receive your monthly statement, e-mail communications about your child/children’s classes and have access to your customer portal.
Additional fees: There is a $25 charge for late tuition payments, returned checks and interruption with credit/debit card processing.
Student Withdrawl: A 30 day written notice is required to un-enroll from all classes or the Star Team. This ensures that we will know the number of students in class and can allow new students to join. This notice also stops us from charging your credit/debit card inadvertently.
Make-Ups: Tuition is not prorated for absences. Therefore, offering make-ups is a courtesy we extend to you. Students are eligible to make-up 1 class within 30 days as long as tuition and fees are up-to-date. Make-ups are held on Saturdays and sign ups are required. Spaces are limited and not guaranteed. Absences may not be “saved up” and taken as a free class at a later time. A scheduled make-up will be counted should you fail to notify us 24 hours in advance that you are cancelling. If you know your child will miss class please make arrangements ahead of time to make it up.
*Preschool, boys & girls recreational classes make-up each Saturday @ 12 noon.
*Tumbling classes make-up the 3rd Saturday of each month @ 12:15 pm.
Please note: Specialty groups that practice 1 1/2 hours or more per week will not be eligible for make-ups. Monthly tuition rates have been adjusted to accommodate this.
Inclement Weather: If there is inclement weather and Wake County Schools close, please call the gym at 919-557-9990. A message will be left on our voice mail and/or website, www.sonshinegymnastics.com, regarding class schedules.
Dress Code: For safety reasons, girls are asked to wear a one piece leotard, no tutus. Hair needs to be pulled back and out of their face. Boys wear a t-shirt (tucked in) and shorts without buttons, zippers or snaps. Those in Tumble classes are to wear elastic waist shorts and t-shirts, no oversized clothing or tank tops. No jewelry, food, or gum is allowed in the gym.
Observation Area: Our block wall and cubbies were designed as a half wall for you to observe class. Please do not allow children to climb or sit on top of them. Please be mindful of those on the bleachers. There are many distractions in the gym with multiple classes going at the same time. The instructors work diligently to keep classes focused and on task. Please allow the gymnasts to give their full attention to their instructors. In addition, please be cautious when using flash photography.
