Assumption of Risk

Participation in our programs and requires full understanding of the risks. Accidents and injuries can happen in any sport. All participants must have a parent or guardian sign waiver/release form. Click to print a waiver.
We reserve the right to limit activities in the gym and on the equipment at any time. Safety is important to all of us. Instructors give safety instructions regularly.


Absences and Make-Ups

Tuition pays for your child's spot in class. As a courtesy, RGC offers two make-ups per term. (In case of long term illness or injury, call the office to make arrangements for additional make-ups.) Make-ups are limited in any given class so we don't overload a class. Please call first to schedule a make-up. Students may also attend an open gym session (1 1/2-2 hours) in place of a missed class. Absences must be made up in the same term. In the event of an absence the last week of the term, a make-up will be given in the next term. (Make-ups can not be used by another person.)


Snow/Inclement Weather

You may listen for snow closings on radio 1400 am, or call our office and hear closing announcements on our phone messaging system. Make-ups for snow closings will be announced and printed in our monthly newsletters. (We may not always follow Racine Unified closings. If the snow is in the early morning, we may still have our evening classes, so please call ahead.) You may also go to the homepage of this web site (www.racinegymnastics.com) for updated information.

Snow Camp

Snow camp is for school age children in the event school is cancelled due to the weather.  Call ahead and bring your own lunch.  An hourly fee will be charged.


Monthly Newsletters

This document will have open gym schedules, class information, competition information, competition announcements, and other information you may be interested in. In the event your child does not bring a newsletter home, you can obtain a copy at the office, or view it by clicking on the Newsletter link on the left side of this page.


Before and After Class

Students wait in the locker rooms before class. All should use the bathroom before class. Teachers will call the students out when it is time to begin. Children are not allowed in the gym or on equipment before or after class. It is alright for a parent to accompany a reluctant child in the gym the first time. If you sense they may be hesitant, arrive a little early the first few weeks so they have a chance to look around and settle in. This can occur with any age child. After class, please be prompt in leaving the gym.


Student Conduct

Children causing problems in class are not only a safety hazard to themselves and to others but greatly reduce the efficiency and control of the teacher. Students will be given a "time out" from class to compose themselves before further participation. Parents will be notified if there is a continuous problem. Parents may be asked to assist a child to keep them with their group.


Open Gym, Group Visits, Birthday Parties

RGC offers other activities in addition to its year round classes. These include open gym, birthday parties, group visits, and special holiday clinics. A fee is charged and may be prorated for current students depending on the activity. These special events are supervised and the structure ranges from open exploration to structured. Scheduling is subject to gym availability and may change due to competitions, holidays, or school events. Check the schedule in our monthly newsletter, call the office for details.

Open gym prices are $5/hour members and $6/hour non-members.
