NO REFUNDS~ Sorry there are no refunds given. Athletes can make up missed classes.
We have set up a connection to our system at www.azdynastygymnastics.com so athletes and parents will be able to monitor their account, enroll in classes and set up private lessons. Please use this link for all your scheduling needs, as well as financial requests, since this system will also account for billing and all payments. Mandatory form of payment is ACH/Automatic Debit from your account, which minimizes our fees, and thus keeps your costs down. We do take money orders, Visa, and MasterCard.
Personal checks are highly discouraged and will only be accepted from established parents.
By placing a card on file, you acknowledge that your card will be charged each month for the fees that are due.
We have contracted with a collections company and have authorized them to collect all unpaid tuition to their fullest extent.
Monthly tuition fees are billed on the 1st of the month. Credit cards/Bank Accounts on file will be charged on the 1st of the following month. There will be a $10 late fee charged after the 1st. Should by your balance not be paid in full by the 5th of the month, we will charge the balance due plus a $25.00 late fee on the 6th of the month. Should by your balance not be paid in full by the 10th of the month, we will charge the balance due plus a $50.00 late fee on the 11th of the month and your athlete will have to sit out from practices, events, and competitions until their account balance is paid to date. Continued failure to pay fees imposed will result in a suspension of your athlete from AZ Dynasty, and they will not be able to participate until the account is brought to a current status.
All Non-Sufficient Fund(NSF)/ Return Payments will be charged $25 each time.
It is the parent/athlete responsibility to have an updated form of payment on file.
If any of the rules for parents and athletes are violated, the following steps will be taken:
1st violation - The athlete and/or parent(s) will be counseled about the behavior and issued a warning.
2nd violation - The athlete and/or parent(s) will be suspended from the gym for a specified amount of time, as determined by the gym administrators.
3rd violation - The family will be asked to leave the gym for the season.
In cases of an extreme policy violation, such as any acts of violence, threats of violence, derogatory statements about AZ Dynasty Athletics, an AZ Dynasty Athletics LLC company, or any of the owners, coaches or athletes, the gym reserves the right to immediately remove a athlete and/or parent(s) from the gym. If a parent or athlete is asked to leave the gym due to any policy violation, they will not be refunded any fees and they will be responsible for the termination fee.
(COMPETITION TEAMS ONLY) The athlete should not be held from practice as a form of discipline. The team depends on all of its members, and failure of a team member to show up for practice causes an undue strain on the team. This type of behavior will result in unexcused absences and follow the discipline
While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, we ask that the parents and athletes refrain from reactively voicing negative opinions about the gym, coaches, routines, teams, fellow athletes, or other parents. Please have patience and faith in the decisions of our coaches
and administrators because the desired results may just need time to evolve.
Raising the tension level at the gym is not productive and will only adversely affect the coaches, the athletes, and their performances. It is for this reason why we have our zero tolerance policy in place. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in the removal of the parent and or athlete(s) from the gym.
AZ Dynasty Athletics has a strict "No Bullying" policy. Any athlete found to be bullying another athlete at any time through any means may be expelled from the gym (not excluding social media, text message, or any other electronic form). Any athlete that is expelled from the gym for bullying will not receive any refunds and will be charged the quitters fee as outlined in this handbook.
We will communicate with our competition athletes and parents through Email and/or in our private group. The group will be only for athletes and their parents. Each member will be verified prior to entry into the group. Separate groups are prohibited, as this may confuse our communication efforts. We will also communicate via email Band, and Facebook.
In the event you have a concern or issue with something other than a life-threatening event whether it is at practice or competition, we respectfully request that you take 24 hours before contacting either your athletes' coach or management. This allows for a cool down period, which
in the heat of the moment can be a good thing. We also ask that you understand that coaches and management will also respect this 24-hour rule before responding to any concerns received outside the rule.
Because parental input is important to us, we have an open door policy for parents and for athletes. If there are any questions or concerns, please come talk with us. If we are not readily available, we can be reached by email message or by message through our website portal. We
will follow up with all contacts as soon as possible. Please refrain from contacting the coaching staff directly, as we are making efforts to be sensitive to their personal time. If we can protect their personal/family time, they will be better able to offer their full attention and energy during practices and performances. If a parent or an athlete needs to meet with a coach, one can make an appointment with them through the front office.
We ask that our athletes and parents not engage in gossip or rumors about, or involving the gym. We have a zero tolerance policy regarding this kind of behavior, which applies to administrative and coaching staff, athletes, and parents alike. Our open door policy is in place to open the lines of communication and facilitate positive dialogue. Again, if there is a question, just ask.
We also discourage our parents, athletes, coaches, and administrative staff from starting or developing relationships of a private nature, which can lead to undesirable and difficult situations in such a close-knit community.
Any unauthorized use of AZ Dynasty 's name, images or students on the internet or personal websites will be dismissed.
