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 $40 Annual Registration Fee per child 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 for new registrations will be a prorated registration fee.
ACH (Auto-debit from a checking or savings account) form is required for 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. 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 $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.
Make Up Policy
Make-ups must be scheduled and completed within 2 weeks of the missed class. If there is no available space in another class, a makeup class may be completed in an equivalent class, lower level class, or an Open Training pass may be offered. All make-ups must be completed within the current session or they are forfeited.
Monthly class tuition is paid in advance. An invoice will be sent after online enrollment via email so you can make an online payment from your checking account, or you can make payment in-person at our office. You may also mail a check payment to Ultimate Performance Gymnastics and Cheer, 4289 124th St., Chippewa Falls, WI 54729.
Tuition Due Date
Tuition is due within 3 business days of registration. Classes fill very quickly and payment secures a class spot for your child. Payment must be received no later than 3 business days of registration or your child may be placed on a waiting list and may lose their spot to a fully paid customer.
The UPGC Waiver Release Form must be signed and turned in along with paid tuition before your child may participate in the 1st class. After the 1st week of non-payment, your child will be dropped from the class, unless otherwise notified. Our school year sessions are for 9 months. No refunds are issued after the first week of the month, regardless of participation. Our summer sessions are 10 or 11 weeks, dependent on the year.
We have an Open Door Policy. Parents are welcome to sit in the viewing area and observe their athlete.

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!

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!
