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.
How do Waitlists work? If the class you want is full, please add your child to the waitlist. Waitlists are checked daily. If a spot opens up, we will email you. You will be given 24 hours to respond to the waitlist. After 24 hours, if we don't hear back, your child will be deleted and we will move on to the next person in line. Please make sure you check your emails! If you miss the window, you could miss the spot. If you miss the email, you can add your child back on to the waitlist. Sorry - but we often have ten children in line and this is the most efficient and fairest way to process the lists.
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 2022 - 2023 fee is $60 for every Recreational Athlete ($50 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.).
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.
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.
What is the cost? All our prices are listed on our website beside the class. Classes are $93/month for athletes under the age of 6, and $122/month for ages 6 and up. (Specialty Classes fees may differ.)
New for 2022-2023 - Does your child want to do more than one class a week? We now offer a 15% discount on the 2nd (or more) classes!
How does billing work? You pay for the first month and insurance when you register (it will be prorated if you join part way through the month). Registration is immediate and you start right away.
You will be automatically billed every month on the 1st for the next month.
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.
We do not prorate for holidays or closed dates. Our prices are based on an average of 4 classes per month; some months have 3 classes, some months have 5 classes.
Want to withdraw? No problem! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org by the 27th and you won't be charged for the following month.
NEW! Do you do trial classes? We have a risk free first class policy! If your child doesn't love the class after their first class, we will refund you in full, including the insurance fee.
What are your Refund Policies? **NO REFUNDS** without a Doctor's note after the second class. 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, refunds, or makeup classes will be given for missed classes due to sickness, vacations, etc.
No credits/refunds can be given for the AGF Insurance fee after the second class.
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 Coach to Participant ratios and a very tight schedule, we do not offer makeup classes. We do not prorate for holidays or closed dates. Our prices are based on an average of 4 classes per month; some months have 3 classes, some months have 5 classes.
