MONTHLY TUITION AND PAYMENT SPECIFICS:
We have structured our program so your child can enroll in class at any time on a month to month basis. The number of classes will vary month to month depending on the area’s school calendars and holidays which necessarily means your child may have 3 classes one month, 4 the next or 5 in another. Regardless, we guarantee 48 classes during our “Gym” year from September to August. If your child’s class meets 5 times in one month, we will not charge extra. Consequently, if your child’s class meets 3 times in one month, due to holidays, you will not receive a credit or make up.
Full payment is required with registration. Tuition payments by check can be mailed or dropped off in our payment box at the front desk. Master Card or Visa, can be used at the front desk or over the phone. Debit Cards can be used at the front desk. We will post tuition on the 15th of the month, unless the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, in which case, we will post on the prior business day. Autopay will now be processed on the 20th for the following month, unless the 20th falls on a weekend, then Autopay will be processed the business day prior. This should help families in the budgeting process and may also help those that are paid on the 15th of the month.
Auto Pay Or Not Your Choice:
If you do not wish for your credit card on file to be run with autopay, please provide us with an alternate form of payment by the 19th. Any outstanding tuition balances will incur a late fee of $15 which will post to your account on the 21st of the month. Any additional fees associated with your account (competition fees, uniform fees, etc.) that are delinquent are subject to a monthly finance charge at an annual rate of 18%.
According to TIGAR’s parent handbook, we require that all families keep an active working credit card on file. This allows you the flexibility to let the autopay run automatically or if another form of payment is desired, the ability to come in and make that payment without being charged the late fee. If for some reason your credit card on file is declined or your check is rejected, a $30 service fee will be added to your account. As we know things can happen, we are happy to waive the $30 fee if we receive an alternative form of payment within 24 hours of the declined card notice.
- You are responsible to make sure we have the correct bank account information or a credit card on file that is not expired and has charging or debit privileges.
- It is easy to update the card information. Log on to your Portal and follow the instructions or give us a call or stop by our front desk and fill out a form. Please allow 15 days for processing changes on your auto pay.
The Annual Membership Fee allows TIGAR to operate without any long term contracts. Applies to immediate family only. This fee is due upon initial registration and each following year on the participant’s anniversary month. $50.00 for your first child, $35.00 for the second child, third child is free.
Drops must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the beginning of a new month. For example, if you wish to drop a class effective June 1, the drop request must be received no later than May 1. VERBAL DROP NOTICES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. If a 30 day written notice is not received, you will receive a final bill for one month’s tuition charge. Drop notice forms are available at the front desk. MEDICAL REASONS for dropping a class: For medical situations validated by a written acknowledgement from a licensed medical practitioner, you will be granted a credit prorated from THE DAY WE RECEIVE the written acknowledgement. A retroactive request for medical credit cannot be granted, as it eliminates our opportunity to fill the vacated class spot.
WHAT TO WEAR TO CLASS:
Appropriate attire and participant readiness is crucial to a good experience at TIGAR, and to keep your child safe. Gymnasts should wear a leotard (girls), singlet (boys), or tank top (tight fitting) and gym shorts. Tights, ballet slippers, jackets, sweatshirts with hoods or drawstrings, socks and shoes (except in cheer classes), gloves, hats and other adornments are not permitted. Loose or baggy clothing should not be worn. Jewelry (except for stud earrings on newly pierced ears) is not permitted. Long hair must be held back in a pony tail. No food, drinks, gum or other consumables are permitted on the training equipment. A brief snack/hydration break will be included during your child’s class. Vending machines, water fountains and a kitchen are available for your use and convenience.
