PROPER ATTIRE: A leotard, shorts, T-shirt, and bare feet or socks are suggested. Hair must be pulled back in a ponytail and tightly secured away from the face for safety reasons. Please provide your own hair tie. We do have some available in the office if they are forgotten, but please do not allow your child to rely on this. No jean shorts, jewelry, or clothing with snaps or buckles. If it is cold, sweats are allowed. Clothing should be snug for safety purposes. Students NOT dressed appropriately may not be allowed to participate on some equipment or at all for safety purposes.
INCLEMENT WEATHER: In the event of inclement weather we will update our social media detailing the forthcoming plans. We will also attempt to E-mail everyone as soon as possible. We will NOT always be able to change our voicemail, so please do not rely on that and check our social media and your E-mails regularly. Make-ups for recreational classes will be available in the event the gym in closed due to weather. In the event of an extended closure we will NOT prorate or refund tuition due to missed classes. We do our best to open during inclement weather but safety for our customers and staff is our first priority.
OBSERVATION: Parents and Siblings are asked to observe from the outside perimeter of the floor and/or lobby. Please refrain from gesturing, signaling or correcting your child while they are on the gym floor. Food and drinks are allowed only on the carpeted area. You are asked to please clean up after yourselves. NO SMOKING ANYWHERE IN THE FACILITY.
MAKE-UPS: You may make up a maximum of 2 missed classes per month. Make ups must be made within 30 days of absence. TEAM ONLY: Team athletes do not have make ups for holidays, gym closings or illness. Full tuition is still due. In the event of severe illness or injury that prohibits your child from participating during her/his workouts for an extended period of time your child's tuition will drop 50% of its normal rate. The athlete's coach and program director must first approve this and then the coach must notify the front office. A copy of a medical excuse by a physician must be received by the Office Manager.

Tuition is processed on the 1st of each month so long as the 1st falls on a business day and is not a federal Holiday in which we are closed. If the 1st is on a Saturday or Sunday, tuition will be processed the next business day. We require auto-draft for ALL programs. Late fees are charged after the 5th of the month. Please see the breakdown for prices on schedules. Returned checks will result in a $35.00 fee. Frequently declined credit cards will also be charged a $35.00 fee. We do not send out monthly statements unless there are late payments that need to be collected. Tuition will not be prorated for lack of attendance regardless of voluntary or involuntary reasons such as inclement weather.
Monthly programs such as Afterschool, Preschool, and Team will not be prorated for lack of attendance regardless of voluntary or involuntary reasons such as inclement weather or non-attendance due to non-health related reasons.
Accounts 30 days past due will be dropped from all programs. Your child will not be able to return to their program until the account balance is paid in full. These accounts will be sent to a collection agency and could eventually affect your credit rating.
Please call the office for tuition discounts for families of 2 or more and service discounts.
TEAM/PRE TEAM ONLY: All Team/Pre Team Parents/Guardians MUST volunteer for a minimum of 6 blocks per family at the annual GGI meet hosted in February. A fee of $25 per block will be applied to all accounts who fall short of the requirement of 6 blocks per family.

If you are a single parent household or have any issue with both parent's/guardians fulfilling the time requirement, please address this prior to the event date with the GGI president and the office staff of Flip Force Gymnastics, LLC.

We allow non-flash photography during our classes and practices. However, please be respectful of other parent's and their children as many may not want their child photographed. If you feel that other children will be included in your photographs and/or videos, please notify the parent's in your proximity. We occasionally take photographs of children and use them as promotion on our social media outlets, including but not limited to our website, Facebook, and Instagram. If at any time you feel uncomfortable with your child being photographed by either a staff or parent, please contact the office immediately.
