Trudeau's Gymnastics Center, Inc. Policies and Procedures
Payment Policy: Our registration fee is $25 and must be paid prior to the first class. This fee is
good from September through August. There are four sessions during the school year. You are
automatically enrolled in each of the sessions for the school year program - you only need to
register once. If you choose not to continue into the next session, it is requested that you leave a
note in the payment box. (The summer program has a separate registration and continuing
students will not be required to pay the summer registration fee.) Students are allowed to join at
any time during the school year program. When a student starts in the middle of a session the
classes will be pro-rated for that session - this must be done through the office. In order to
participate in any class, the registration materials must be completed and turned in. The payment
charts gives three options for payments. When you choose to pay for your class in full at the
beginning of the session, the price per class is the lowest rate. If you choose to pay in
installments, an additional interest fee is included. Whether you choose to make payments or pay
in full you are obligated to pay for the session even if your child drops out. There are no refunds
unless your child is injured (documented with a doctor's note) and unable to finish the session.
There is a payment drop box for your convenience or you may mail the payment in. Checks
should be made out to Trudeau's Gymnastics. There is a $25 return check fee. If paying in cash,
it is important to understand that we do not keep cash in the gym, therefore payments must be
exact for both classes and/or merchandise.
Snow Day Policy: We try not to close unless the weather is severe. If we must close it will be
posted on our website. Please check for this message if weather is questionable. All snow days
that are missed are allowed to be made up during the session it falls in. There is no change in
class fees.
Holiday Policy: Trudeau's is closed for Halloween, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break,
Winter Break, Spring Break and Memorial Day along with the local school calendar. Any class
missed due to a holiday is allowed to be made up during the session it falls in. Plan ahead for
holiday breaks so that you can make up classes that would occur when the gym is closed for the
holidays. (Other than Memorial Day, we are open for all Monday holidays, even though school is
not in session.)
Make-up Policy: All holiday breaks, snow days, illnesses, and special events that occur on your
child's class days that prevent your child from attending class are allowed to be made up.
However, all make-ups must be done within the session that your child is attending. Any class
that is not made up during the session that it is missed in will result in the loss of make-ups. If for
some reason you had extra ordinary reasons for not making a class up during the session that you
missed the class and you need to extend the make up into the next session, this can only be done
with prior consent through the office. Please try to do your make-ups as soon as possible after the
original lesson is missed. Also, please consult your child's teacher to determine which class
would be best for your child to make-up in.
Merchandise Sales: Trudeau's offers a wide variety of leotards, shorts, and T-shirts. If you find
an item that your child would like there is a price list for all items posted. Simply place payment
for item in the payment box. Feel free to try items on if needed. Ask your child's teacher if you
need any assistance or are unsure of the cost.
News Board: Our news board is located near our entrance. Please check the news board when
you come in. This board reminds you of when new sessions start, when payments are due, when
we have holiday closures and upcoming events. If you have a question, please call or e-mail us.
Description of Classes
Gymnastics class descriptions are made according to floor skills - Review the
descriptions to help you determine where your child should initially be placed ... In

that will help them to feel successful and confident.

Pre-Team, Hot Shots & Competitive Team Gymnastics: The pre-team is our initial
team level for the first year team members. This level will teach all the routines and skills
that are needed to compete. Once the routines are memorized and the gymnast is able to
safely do the skills then the gymnast will be able to compete. This class is an accelerated
learning class especially designed for young gymnast with great potential! Your child’s
teacher will recommend this program when they feel you child is ready. If you want your
child in this program and have not heard from your child’s teacher, talk to your child’s
teacher to see what your child needs to accomplish in order for them to be recommended
for this level. The hot shot team is our first level of our competitive gymnastics program.
This class will focus on the USA Level 3 compulsory routines, advanced skills, proper
technique, and conditioning. Our USA sanctioned gymnastics program consists of levels
4 through 10 competition. If you are signing up for any the team levels, you will need to
review the team program also available on this website.
