A: The duration of a level placement can vary depending on the child's experience and skill level. Typically, it lasts no longer than 10 minutes.

Q: What occurs during the level placement?
A: The evaluator will guide the child through different apparatus in the gym, allowing them to demonstrate any relevant skills they can safely perform independently.

Q: What happens after my child’s level placement?
A: Post-evaluation, the evaluator will discuss with you the most appropriate class for your child. Following this, our sales team will assist you in enrolling your child in a class that fits your schedule.

2How do I know when my child is ready to promote to the next level?

At Elevate Sports Center, your child's development in gymnastics is continuously monitored and supported. Here's how the promotion process works:

  1. Initiation of Progress Check: When your child's coach observes that your child may be ready for advancement, they will request a Progress Check. This is a key step in assessing your child's readiness to move to the next level.

  2. Conducting the Progress Check: An evaluator will conduct this check during your child's regular class. This allows for a natural and comfortable environment for your child to showcase their skills.

  3. Feedback and Communication: After the Progress Check, the evaluator provides feedback to your child's coach about their development and progress.

  4. Informing Parents: Your child's coach will then communicate with you, providing insights into how your child is progressing and what steps are recommended next.

  5. Promotion to Next Level: If the evaluation indicates that your child is ready to move up a level, your coach will guide you to the front desk. There, a sales representative will assist you in finding a suitable new class.

  6. Further Development in Current Level: In cases where it's determined that your child would benefit from more time at their current level, the coach will have detailed information to support further skill development. This ensures a tailored approach to enhance your child's gymnastics journey.

3What does my child wear to class?

To ensure a safe and effective training environment, we have established the following dress code and personal item guidelines for all our students:

  1. Attire for Boys and Girls: Boys and girls may wear tucked-in t-shirts and shorts for comfort and ease of movement. Additionally, girls have the option to wear leotards.

  2. Restrictions for Girls: For safety and comfort during practice, girls are not permitted to wear only sports bras.

  3. Hair Requirements: Hair must be pulled back neatly and securely away from the face, ensuring it stays up for the entire workout. This helps avoid any distractions or accidents during activities.

  4. Hair Accessory Guidelines: Large hair ornaments, such as bows, that could cause discomfort or be a hazard during activities are not allowed.

  5. Footwear: All students are required to be barefoot while in class. This enhances safety and grip during gymnastics activities.

  6. Prohibited Items: Chewing gum and jewelry are not permitted in class to ensure safety and maintain focus.

  7. Storage of Personal Items: Personal items should be stored in the provided cubby holes. Please note, Elevate Sports Center is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

  8. Label Personal Items: To prevent loss or mix-up of belongings, please mark your child’s personal items with their name.

Adhering to these guidelines helps us maintain a safe, focused, and respectful environment for all our students. Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to a positive gymnastics experience.

4If my child misses a class, can I schedule a makeup class?

Understanding that unexpected absences can occur, we offer the following make-up policy for our students:

  1. Annual Make-Up Tokens: Each child is entitled to 5 FREE make-up classes per year for excused absences. These make-up classes are a courtesy to ensure your child can keep up with their training despite unforeseen circumstances.

  2. Additional Make-Ups: Should you exceed the allocated 5 free make-up classes within the year, additional make-up classes or extra sessions can be purchased for $35 each.

  3. Yearly Basis: The count of free make-up classes is based on your anniversary date with Elevate Sports Center. This provides a clear yearly timeframe for tracking your child's make-up eligibility.

  4. Scheduling and Availability: Make-up and extra classes are subject to availability and can only be scheduled if you are currently enrolled. We recommend planning in advance to secure a spot.

  5. Policy Restrictions: Please note that this policy is subject to further restrictions and may change. We advise staying informed about any updates.

  6. Exclusions for Team Gymnastics: It is important to note that our Team Gymnastics program, including Pre Team, does not offer make-up tokens.

By adhering to this policy, we strive to provide flexibility for our students while maintaining a structured training environment. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in managing your child's gymnastics schedule.

5Can my child attend more than one class a week?

We are pleased to offer an incentive for students who wish to enroll in multiple classes. Here's how our discount policy works:

  • 20% Discount on Additional Classes: When you enroll your child in more than one class, each additional class will be eligible for a 20% discount off its standard tuition fee.

This discount is our way of encouraging students to explore a wider range of gymnastics classes and to reward families for their commitment to our program. It's an excellent opportunity to enhance your child's skills, experience different forms of gymnastics, and fully benefit from all that Elevate Sports Center has to offer.

6I think my child is ready to move up, what do I do?

At Elevate Sports Center, we believe in keeping parents informed about their child's development in gymnastics. Here is how you can understand and track your child’s progress:

  1. Initiate a Discussion: If you have questions or wish to know more about your child’s progress, we encourage you to speak directly with your child’s coach.

  2. Coach's Review: Your child’s coach will thoroughly review their skill sheet and observe your child’s performance in class. This helps the coach to assess the current level of skill and areas of improvement.

  3. Scheduling an In-Class Progress Check: Based on this review, the coach may arrange for an in-class Progress Check. This involves an evaluator who will assess your child’s skills during a regular class session.

  4. Feedback and Reporting: After the Progress Check, the evaluator provides feedback to your child’s coach. The coach will then compile this information and report back to you with a comprehensive update on your child’s gymnastics journey.

We believe this process ensures a detailed and accurate understanding of your child's progress, helping us to work together to support their growth in gymnastics.

Drop Policy Questions

1What is Elevates Drop Policy?

PARENTS MUST NOTIFY ELEVATE SPORTS CENTER TO DROP A STUDENT FROM CLASS BY THE 15TH OF MONTH. Only drop requests submitted through our website will be accepted. Please note we DO NOT accept drop notices via phone, fax, verbally, or via regular mail or email. Since Elevate Sports Center works on month-to-month tuition billing basis, all drop dates will be the last day of month. We do not prorate or refund for drops prior to last day of month. You are responsible for payment for your student’s classes WHETHER OR NOT YOUR STUDENT ATTENDS CLASS until the time you have submitted a drop request and received a confirmation number. Please do not rely on your student to verbally let us know that he/she will no longer be attending classes. If a student stops coming to class without notification then that student’s account will be charged for the additional 30 days. This charge will be for holding the student’s place in that class instead of offering that place to one of the many on a waiting list.

2How do I submit a drop request?

We have a registration fee of $35 per child for each enrollment in our monthly class programs. To accommodate families with multiple students, this fee is capped at a maximum of $50 per family when enrolling 2 or more children. Please note that this fee does not apply to parties, open gyms, parents’ night outs, and camps. This is an annual, non-refundable fee, ensuring your child's place in our classes.

2When is tuition due?

Elevate Sports Center is transitioning to a more efficient and reliable billing system. To simplify the payment process and ensure timely tuition management, AutoPay will now be mandatory for all families.

  • AutoPay Enrollment: Upon registration or at your earliest convenience, we ask that you enroll in our AutoPay system. This will authorize automatic billing of your monthly tuition fees.

  • Billing Schedule: Tuition will be automatically charged to your account on the first business day of each month. For example, a payment for June's tuition will be processed on June 1st.

  • Tuition Posting: You can expect to see the tuition charges posted on the last day of the previous month. For instance, December's tuition will be posted on November 30th.

  • Late Payment Policy: We strive to avoid late payments with AutoPay. However, if any issues arise, please note that payments are considered late after the 4th of the month.

We believe that this change will make the payment process more convenient and consistent for all our families. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

3Does Elevate ever charge late fees?

Tuition payments received after the 4th of each month at Elevate Sports Center will incur a $35 late fee. We encourage timely payments to avoid this additional charge.

4What happens if I fail to pay tuition?

Members with an unpaid balance as of the 9th of the month at Elevate Sports Center will incur an additional late fee of $35. Furthermore, if any balance remains unpaid after the 12th of the month, all enrolled students from the account will be removed from their class rolls, and their spots may be filled by other students. Additionally, a fee of $25 will be charged for all returned checks.

5If I enroll in the middle of the month, will my tuition be prorated?

Yes, our billing is tailored to your attendance. You will only be charged for the weeks you attend for the remainder of the month. If you enroll during the last week of the month, we will ask for a prorated amount for that week, along with the tuition for the following month.

6I see you are closed for Memorial Day and Christmas Break. Will my tuition be prorated?

No, at Elevate Sports Center, we guarantee an average of three to four lessons per month over a 12-month period. While most months offer four lessons, some have five, and a few may have only three. In fact, if children attend every week, they typically receive 48 lessons per year!

7I will miss a gymnastics class, will Elevate refund that class?

Elevate Sports Center offers year-round open enrollment for all classes. Each class has a flat monthly fee, which reserves the student's place in the class regardless of attendance. As this fee secures their spot, please note that there are no refunds for missed classes, including those missed due to scheduled holidays.

8What is the refund and store credit policy?

Elevate Sports Center does not issue refunds. However, in good faith, we offer store credits to members who drop classes in accordance with our Drop Policy. Store credits may also be issued in other unique circumstances.
