Recreational Program FAQ

You’ve Got Questions—We’ve Got Answers

Thank you for your interest in Altadore Gymnastic Club!
Here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions.

What is AGC doing to keep my child safe (COVID-19)? Please see our Return to Play document (link on homepage) to see what steps we are taking to ensure the safety of all our athletes and staff. 
Please note that starting February 15, every participant needs to submit an online Screening Checklist before EVERY CLASS.

The water fountain is currently off limits. Please bring a filled water bottle for your child.

What is the AGF Insurance fee for? This is a mandatory insurance fee that we need to submit to the Alberta Gymnastics Federation, plus a small AGC membership fee. It is valid from July 1 to June 30. The 2020 - 2021 fee is $55 for every Recreational Athlete ($45 after April 1st). AGF Members (excluding drop-in, birthday party and promotional activity participants) are eligible to receive reimbursement for medical expenses associated with injuries that occurred during an AGF sanctioned activity. This coverage is applied after the participant’s primary benefit package (e.g. Alberta Health Care coverage) is consumed. Costs such as immediate “out of pocket” expenses related to an injury may also be provided through this coverage (E.g. Ambulance Fees, air casts, crutches, etc.).

Is there room in a class for my child? If it says 'Register' beside a class, there's space. If it says 'Waitlist', it is full. Adding your child to the waitlist lets us know how many more children are interested, and if possible, we may open another class.

How much are your classes? All our prices are listed on our website beside the class. Starting in September 2020, we started continuous programs. Classes are $93/month for athletes under the age of 6, and $120/month for ages 6 and up. (Specialty Classes fees may differ.)

How does billing work? You pay when you register for the first month (it will be prorated if you join part way through the month). Then you will be automatically billed every month on the 1st for the next month. Want to withdraw? No problem! Just email admin@altadoregym.com by the 27th and you won't be charged on the 1st. Please monitor your credit card on file, as you will be charged a $30 NSF fee if your card declines. You can log into the parent portal to change your credit card at anytime.

What are your Refund Policies? **NO REFUNDS** without a Doctor's Note. Withdrawals for other circumstances will be credited to your online account. In the case of a COVID shutdown, your account will be credited for the cancelled classes and no additional payments will be charged until we reopen. No credits or refunds will be given for missed classes due to COVID isolations.
No credits/refunds can be given for the AGF Insurance fee. AGC reserves the right to cancel or change classes based on class size and coach availability. Refunds WILL be given for classes that don't run.

My child has to miss a class, do you offer makeup classes? Due to COVID restrictions and a very tight schedule, we are not offering makeup classes at this time.

Can I register now but not start until next month? No, sorry. Because of our very limited spaces available, all our registrations are for immediate enrollment. If you want to wait until the following month, you can register a few days prior to the beginning of the month if there's a spot available. ie. If you want a Thursday class, wait until the last Thursday class for the month is over and register then.

I don't have a credit card. How can I pay? No problem! You can send an Email Transfer to admin@altadoregym.com to pay. Remember payment is due by the 1st of every month, and the first payment needs to be done at least 24hrs prior to the first class.

 

Are there classes today/this Monday/next week? See the Recreational Class Calendar HERE. Drop-In Schedules can be found on our website HERE.

My child doesn't meet the age requirement right now, can they still register? If your child doesn't make the age requirement at the time of registration, but will turn the correct age within 2 weeks of the class starting, you can still register but you will have to call admin: 403-720-2711 or email: admin@altadoregym.com.

 

I don't know what level I should register my child in. Please read the class descriptions on the website. If you still have questions, please email Brie@altadoregym.com.

Do you have classes for my XX year old? Yes! Please check our website for information and ages for all our classes.

What should my child wear? Your children do not need to wear anything special, just comfy clothes (shorts and t-shirts work fine). Some girls do wear gym suits, but that's completely optional. We have some gym suits in our Pro Shop if you want to come early and take a look.

Do we need to fill out a waiver?  Yes, and they are now done online! www.altadoregym.com/waivers. If you are attending a Parent & Child class, the parent needs to do the ADULT waiver.

I have another question that isn't listed here. Please email our General Manager: shannon@altadoregym.com
