The second part is being able to perform all of the skills needed for the next level. The third part is conditioning and flexibility testing. As the gymnast performs more complex skills it is important that their overall fitness improves to maintain their health and safety. Finally their work ethic and maturity must also be appropriate for the upcoming level. We also must receive a written notice of withdrawal on or before the 15th of the month prior to withdrawal.
If we do not receive written notice on or before the 15th, tuition for the next month will be charged.

Tuition Our team program is based on a year round commitment from the gymnast and their family. Tuition will only be adjusted in the event of an injury or extended illness.
There are no make ups for missed practices.
Meet Fee Assessment The Meet Fee Assessment is an annually calculated lump sum that covers the cost, for gymNation, of your child attending competitions. These costs are in addition to tuition. The Meet Fee Assessment varies and is based on level because different levels attend a different number of competitions and each entry fee, mileage and number of coaches needed to attend specific meets varies.
Meet assessment fees are due on the 15th of the month beginning in August. The specific schedule for a competition is often not known until two weeks prior. Please keep the entire weekend available. Parents should not contact the host gym regarding session times. Tuition Adjustments We offer a few different tuition adjustments below.

Parents must meet with the coaching staff to discuss extended absences and physical limitations due to an injury. The office must then be notified to receive the tuition adjustment. And gymnasts love the chance to have their own individually choreographed routines, showcasing the skills they do best and look the best on them.
A Jump from Level 5 to Level 7 — That is Big I am a firm believer in getting gymnasts to the optional level as soon as safely possible. Not all compulsory gymnastics skills are used in higher level optional gymnastics, so getting to the optional level makes a lot of sense. A big jump would be a girl that we had, who after a great training summer and at the beginning of the next season, with the cooperation of the meet director and state director, and literally competed three different levels in one meet — Level 5, Level 6 and her level of that year — Level 7.
She even won events and medals at all three levels. Now that was a big jump. A Third Alternative There is a third alternative.
Your daughter could actually compete Level 6 while training for Level 7. Your daughter could actually stay competing at level 6, until she is ready to compete Level 7. What Do I Suggest? In the long run, if a gymnast averages moving up one level per year during their career, your daughter evidently has the potential to move up higher and faster than the average gymnast.
You are lucky your coach is giving her this opportunity and, if it were me, I would take advantage of it. Regardless of how well she does at Level 7 this year, she has a head start on most gymnasts for the next year.
