Nine weeks throughout the year where Springers do not have structured practice. Open gyms may be available during the time off, and more information is given closer to those breaks.
Discipline is carried out in a way to help children develop self-control and assume responsibility for their own behavior. We make every effort to assist the child in correcting any unacceptable behavior through re-direction, reminders of expected behavior, time-outs, and parent conferences. Our approach focuses on positive reinforcement; staff acts in a manner that is kind and caring, yet firm.
If an incident occurs, coaches have a behavioral form detailing what happened for parents.
Gymnasts with injuries are still encouraged to attend practices. Certain skills can still be learned and accomplished. If they are not attending and you wish to put your membership on hold contact the supervisor.
As a courtesy to our coaches, we ask that you call or send a note before your child’s absent. We cannot schedule make-up practices.
Because parents see their children in competition, we do not hold a parent-viewing week. We are happy to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns you may have before or after practice.
If an injury occurs and participation needs to be suspended, a medical note is required. A prorated refund or credit can be issued and is not subject to a ‘Service Fee’.
Springers is a monthly membership fee, which covers the practices and the coaches fees. There are additional required fees for the program such as team leotards and meet fees that are not included in the monthly cost. Springer members must meet the financial requirements for team practices, competitions, special performances, and uniforms.
Payments can be made on a month to month basis or in full.
Payments – Monthly Basis All payment plans must be made via automatic withdraw on the 15st of each month. Complete an automatic payment request form at the time of registration. Payments are set up to be made two weeks prior to participation. Payments that are not successfully processed prior to the first of the month or participation is suspended. The monthly fee is determined based on the average monthly cost to run the program annually. Price per month is not broken down by the number of practices that month. When there is time off during the summer, fall, and winter the monthly rate remains the same.
Springer participants abide by the Carol Stream Park District Refund and Withdrawal Policy. There are no refunds for missed classes, meet fees or team uniforms.
