Assumption of Risk
Sports participation can be dangerous. You must recognize that participation in all activities offered at UPGC
can result in minor and severe injuries, permanent paralysis, brain damage, or even death. A Waiver Release Form
must be agreed to, signed and turned in before your child may participate in the first class.
You must agree to authorize transportation of your child to a medical facility for treatment in the event of an
accident or emergency, at your cost, and hold UPGC harmless in the management of such accident or emergency. You
must agree to provide for all medical expenses which may be incurred by yourself or your child(ren) as a result
of any injury while on our premises or while under our care. If at any time during your child's enrollment with
UPGC said child becomes injured (on UPGC site or off), UPGC must have a doctor's note releasing the enrolled child
to full activity before they are allowed to return to class.
There is a $35 Annual Registration Fee that is non-refundable. Please be aware of this when you register for a
class. The Annual Fee is valid from September 1st of one year to August 31st of the following year. Summer session

Payment will be charged within 3 business days of registration, on the credit card provided. Registration during
the school year session will include first and last month's tuition as well as the annual registration fee. ACH
(Auto-debit from a checking or savings account) form is required for remaining payments. The ACH must be filled
out no later than the 2nd week of class and is available in the office, or requested via email. Payment for summer
session will be payment in full. If payment is declined for any reason, the customer is responsible for any fees
charged to UPGC due to the decline. In case of chargeback, all fees for services rendered must be repaid to UPGC.
Without payment in full, the child cannot continue/enroll for future classes.
Cancellation or Changes
There is a $25 change class/cancellation fee after the first day of class. There is a $30 returned check fee/returned
ACH. Each attempt to retrieve funds unsuccessfully will result in an additional $30 fee. If registering for a class
after participation in a no-obligation trial class, the trial class will be charged as instructional time with
remaining monthly tuition.

Only one make-up class is allowed per participant, per month, provided there is class availability. Make-ups must
be scheduled with the office and held within 2 weeks of the missed class.
Monthly class tuition is paid in advance. An invoice will be sent after online enrollment via email so you can

This payment must be received no later than 3 business days of registration or your child may be placed on a waiting

the class and the parent/guardian will be informed.
Notification of class cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page. We do not necessarily close for inclement

up class if you feel you cannot make it to class safely.
Inform us if your child has any physical problems or medical information that we should know about.

Injury and Safety Procedures
We take every precaution to provide a safe environment, but because we are a sports related activity with movement
and motion, on occasion, accidents will happen. Should an injury occur in the gym during class the instructor will
follow the Safety Procedures Manual provided by Ultimate Performance Gymnastics and Cheer.
Cleanliness is priority at Ultimate Performance Gymnastics and Cheer! We have high traffic areas throughout our
gym! Mats and carpets are sanitized for health and safety standards on a daily and weekly schedule. All food and
drinks other than water must remain inside the Observation area and outside of the main gym. Please report any
spills to the front desk. Do not hesitate to report if the restrooms need attention.
Please use the parking spaces provided. Do not park along the building or in front of the door, blocking the sidewalk
area. If you drop off a student at the front door, we ask you to watch for them to make their entrance before you
leave. Enter and exit slowly/always look when you are backing up.
Regular updates can be found on our Facebook page, website, and gym bulletin board. We also send out newsletters
by email. It is very important that we keep you informed on all activities, special programs, etc. happening in
the gym. Get to know your child's teacher and visit with them briefly before or after class. They are more than
happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have about our program and activities. Contact us immediately
about any concerns, so that we can be proactive! Our goal is to provide a positive athletic experience!
