In order to register for a class, please contact the office to determine the appropriate class level and complete the membership form with your first and second choice class times. You will only be notified if you don’t receive your first choice. Rising Stars Gymnastics Academy reserves the right to close classes due to lack of interest or if the class is full. Some classes may be a combination of levels. A parent or guardian must complete a membership form before your child can participate in class. Any medical conditions should be brought to the attention of the coach each session.
Return to Sport Protocol
As we slowly reopen RSGA for classes, we have new Return to Sport protocol. These guidelines and procedures mandated and recommended by the State of Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the CDC to help keep everyone safe and slow the spread of any viruses.
Do My Part Agreement
We have a Do My Part agreement that is required from all families. Without the signed form gymnasts are not allowed in the gym. The form talks about what is expected of parents and gymnasts.
The annual fee is $40 per family or $25 per individual. The fee is collected at the time of registration and is good for the school year. There is no annual fee due for the summer session. Annual fees apply to both new and returning students and are non-refundable.
A discounted rate of 10% is given to the second student in the same family, 20% to the third, 30% to the fourth, etc. Discounts are applied to the lesser fee.
Tuition is due at the time of registration. Returned checks are subject to a $25 service fee.
The commitment is always for a session, regardless of times missed. A refund of tuition can be given for any withdrawals made more than two weeks prior to the start of the session less a $5.00 processing fee. If cancellation is two weeks prior to session start date a $25.00 cancellation fee is charged for each student. If cancellation is made one week prior to session start date one-half of tuition is charged. The Annual Registration Fee is always nonrefundable. Refunds are not given for missed classes and there are no refunds given once the session has begun. Any amount of credit on file must be used within a year from the date the credit was applied.
For all sessions, priority registration is given to all currently enrolled students provided they reserve their class by the deadline date that is noted on the RSGA schedule.
