Gymnasts are automatically enrolled into the following terms class unless advised otherwise (see ceasing gymnastics)
Recreational Fees: Fees are calculated on a term basis, with typically 9-11 weeks in each term and approximately 40 weeks per year, generally aligned with the public school terms. New gymnasts starting partway through the term are charged on a pro rata basis for the remaining weeks in the term. Lesson fees are required to be paid in full or a minimum of 2 weeks in advance and on an approved payment plan before your child is permanently enrolled into a class. Gymnasts are not permitted to participate in the class until fees are paid and paperwork submitted.
Participants are required to pay by end of term to book in for the following term. Anyone not booked in, (i.e. paid for next term by terms end) forfeit their class position if required by a new member.
Failure to pay: Fees must remain at a minimum of 2 weeks in advance at all times. If a payment is missed the member will be contacted via email or phone informing them they have 7 days (or by their next lesson) to make payment. Once paid lessons have been attended the gymnast will no longer be enrolled in that class, to re-enrol the gymnast a 2 week minimum payment and arranged payment plan is required.
All outstanding fees MUST be paid in full before the commencement of the following term or gymnasts will not be permitted to attend their class.
Missing Classes: If gymnasts miss classes, leave early or arrive late this does not entitle them to a discount on fees. Lesson fees pay for a position in a class and the cost to the club remains the same whether you attend or not. Refunds are only permitted under certain circumstances – Please see refund policy outlined in this document.
Make Up Classes: You must inform the club that your child will not be attending prior to their class starting to be able to claim a makeup. Make-up lessons must be booked in prior to the lesson and are offered only if a position is available in that particular type of class. Make up lessons must be taken during the current term. If a child is unable to attend for two or more weeks due to illness or injury, a credit/refund for missed classes can be obtained by presenting administration with an appropriate medical certificate for the missed period.
Public Holidays: No recreational classes are held on public holidays. This does not entitle parents to a credit/refund for a missed lesson as the account has already been adjusted at the time of booking.
Other Activities: Competitions, private lessons, extra training sessions, day camps, sleepovers, etc. are to be paid for at the time of booking, however lesson fees must be completely paid up to date in order to book for one of these activities.
All questions regarding fee amounts should be directed to the administration office during business hours or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org Please do not approach coaches regarding fees.
Competitive Fees: Currently the Foundation and Competitive Program Fee structure is under review for 2017 and will be announced late November 2016.
Payment Options: Cash payments can be received at the counter and bank transfer is also available.
*Please note there are no EFTPOS facility available.
Ceasing gymnastics: All bookings are term based therefore fees are calculated and charged for the term. Gymnasts not returning the following term must give 2 weeks’ notice by either email or direct to administration.
All fees are non-refundable unless a written request is made, accompanied by a medical certificate to verify illness or injury. If you choose to leave partway through a term, fees will be forfeited. Annual membership is not refundable.
Lesson fee refund will not be given for missed classes or early withdrawal from a class regardless of attendance. Should a class be cancelled the club will endeavour to provide a makeup class at the next most convenient time. Any classes cancelled due to a competition or event will be taken into consideration and removed from invoices for that term.
Competition fees: If an athlete is not able to attend a competition due to illness or unforeseeable circumstances, a refund will be sought from the organising club. Once the fees are paid it is at the discretion of the organising club to refund nomination fees. SCG will request a refund on your behalf. If and when the fees are refunded to us we will pass this refund onto the gymnast. Coaches levies are non-refundable but may be reimbursed under our fundraising rebate scheme.
