Pinnacle Gymnastics Policies      
 
Tuition:  Classes run during 12 week sessions.  Tuition is due upon enrollment for any 12 week session.  Tuition for a session remains the same whether your child has 3, 4 or 5 classes in any given month.  Why is this?  Our tuition prices are based on the total number of classes during the whole year and is divided evenly across 12 months to determine your session tuition rates. This helps keep budgeting easy for us and payments easy for you!  No charge will be added when five classes occur during the month.  This extra class is considered compensation for snow days, holidays, and months when three classes occur during the month.

This is due to our safety and security policy. There is absolutely NO flash photography, photography or video-taping allowed during class sessions. There are parents in our program who have specifically requested that their child not be captured in photos and/or videos. In addition, if you wish to take a photo and/or video-tape your child please speak with their specific coach and arrange a time, because many of our coaches have a second class and may need preparation time. This must be arranged in advance! Furthermore, pictures and/or videos taken in the gym must be of your child ONLY and photos and/or videos containing other children cannot be posted on any social media network. 
If you choose to not follow our policies pertaining to photography,  you will be removed from our gym.
