Students build upon the skills learned through level 1 courses. The classes are designed progressively each month so that each class builds upon what you learned in the previous class and instructors will insure proficiencies are being met to advance to higher levels skills.

YOUTH CLASSES PRICING
We require each student to sign up and enroll for the particular class you will be attending each week. This is to ensure that the students will continue to progress with the rest of the class each month. An autopay contract must be signed if you wish to continue taking classes each month. We have a 15 day cancellation policy. We do not offer refunds for missed classes. Make ups are allowed for missed classes, but you must schedule them in advance and within the same month. Our youth pricing is as follows…
1 Class per week: $99
2 Classes per week: $165
3 Classes per week: $200
Each family must accept the terms and conditions for autopay: 15 days written cancellation notice to end your plan. Please submit a change/exit form to the front desk to cancel.
Registering for a program or weekly class means reserving a spot in that class for an entire session. While there is no penalty for exiting a program early, participants are required to give 2 weeks notice to the gym by completing and submitting a Class Change / Class Exit Form, available at the front desk. Exiting a program without notice does not free up the reserved spot, and will result in a charge. If exiting a program mid-month, there will be no refunds for classes not attended (if you know you’re leaving mid month, it may be best to cancel for the end of the month prior, and purchase individual Drop-Ins for the partial month).
Classes and Programs
All classes are weekly, with payment due monthly autopay is deducted on the 1st of each month. A credit card must be on file.
Monthly AutoPay with Credit Card or Debit Card:
This is the primary form of payment. Cards will be charged on the first of each month (unless otherwise arranged) for the full monthly tuition amount. Cancellation must be completed at least 2 weeks in advance by completing and submitting a Class Change / Class Exit Form, available at the front desk. If an AutoPay contract is not stopped prior to the first of a month and must be returned, the payment will be returned in the form of an account credit, which can be applied to future AR classes.
Failed autopays/declined cards:
It is your responsibility to confirm your payments are being processed monthly. Any disruption, such as a declined payment or a new card, will likely cancel the AutoPay. If your payment is declined, your card has expired or has been changed, or you need to update billing info, please contact the front desk ASAP so as not to interrupt services or accumulate a negative account balance. If you do not clear up the charge due by the 5th of each month, a $25 late fee will be due in addition to your tuition. We cannot guarantee your spot is held if you do not pay on time.
Pre-Pay is only for those unable to utilize AutoPay method. Monthly Pre-Pay Payments are due in advance of any attended classes for any given month. For exiting a session prior to the official end, 2 weeks notice is required by completing and submitting a Class Change / Class Exit Form, available online or at the front desk. If we do not receive a Class Change / Class Exit Form, you will be billed for the space still being reserved, as we cannot fill your space until notified.
When prorating a month for new sign-ups, cost for each class for the prorated month will be the monthly cost, divided by 4, for no more than 4 classes.
As a courtesy, classes missed due to illness, injury or vacations, may be subject to a Make-Up class. A Make-Up could be utilized prior to or after the missed class, in the form of attending a similar class in addition to the scheduled weekly class. Make-Ups are subject availability. Two Make-Ups per month will be allowed, if available. A student MUST be a current paid Member to utilize the Make-Up option—Make-Ups will not be honored after a student exits a session.
AR is all about fun while building strong bodies, friendships and positive character. All enrolled students and program attendees will be expected to behave with appropriate respect for gym staff and fellow students. Gym equipment is to be used only with permission from gym staff, and only for its designed purpose. Students not following basic rules of appropriate behavior may be asked to sit out for a period of time, or in some cases, to leave a class permanently.
Classes are offered during all school vacations, but not on federal holidays such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, etc. AR will close for youth classes for one week over Christmas break (usually the week between Christmas and New Years.) We do not prorate the Christmas/New Years closure as some months throughout the year have 5 weeks and some have 4. We do not charge extra for the 5th week, so therefore, we will not prorate the loss of one week per year. Vacations dates and policies are subject to change without notice. *Those missing a class on Thanksgiving Day may do one Make-Up at some time in the month prior to or after the missed class.
There are no refunds for partial month tuition. When a refund is warranted, refunded payments will be in the form of account credit for future use. Any exceptions to this policy will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
Overdue Payments/Returned Checks:
Late fee of $25 will be applied on payments 5 days overdue. Returned checks will be subject to a $30 fee.
Policies may be subject to change without notice.
