Classes

Boys’ Class Descriptions

You can arrange for your child to take part in a free trial lesson. Our coaches will determine the training level appropriate for your child based on his capabilities and age. Dress is a T-shirt and athletic shorts or a warmup. Socks or bare feet are the norm.

Levels 1-2: Introductory and pre-team, ages 5-10 years old. Classes focus on gymnastics body-shapes and simple progressions for rolls, cartwheels, swings and basic strength. Classes last 55 minutes.

​Level PreTeam learns simple routines as it is our getting-ready-to-compete group.

Level 3: This is the initial level for competing; ages 6+. Gymnasts learn the skills for performing routines on all 6 apparatuses and can compete at the state level. Not all choose to compete.

Levels 4-6: A more serious commitment and opportunity to compete at a regional level (7 states combined). Training primarily consists of pre- and post-workout conditioning, flexibility and skill training for routines.

Levels 7-10: These upper level gymnasts create their own routines and can compete at a national level. At this point, gymnastics becomes a specialized sport and requires serious dedication, time, and sacrifice. ​

Girls’ Class Descriptions

Our classes cater to beginner girls, ages 5-16. Dress is a T-shirt and athletic shorts or a leotard or a warmup. Socks or bare feet are the norm.

In the case of two or more from one family, after the first child, each additional child will receive 10% off the training fee. The training fee is due the first week of each month. If the fee is not received by that time, a $10 late fee is charged per family for level preschool, 1 or 2, $25 for level 3 and above. A $120 once-per-year registration fee is due with the program application from July 1-Dec 31 (reduced $15/month after Jan 1). Fees are paid by cash, check, money order, Venmo, Cashapp, ACH or credit card (latter two methods are available to do online via Jackrabbit Class Management System). Any family paying for 6 months at one time receives 5% discount from the 6-month total.88

PBG keeps a waitlist when classes are filled and will contact any on the waitlist when an opening occurs. To reserve a slot once one opens, a $15 non-refundable deposit is required. This will be credited to the student once attendance begins and payment is made.

For boys in our competition program, PreTeam through level 10: Policy regarding tuition when a child goes away for summer family vacation or gymnastics camp

Since I almost always have enough teachers ready to teach all registered students for the appropriate training sessions, I must maintain income to cover these teachers and pay rent but I don’t want to overly burden a family that takes an extended vacation or sends a child to a camp. To help families but maintain enough income to keep operating, consider June-July-August as a whole. If a child misses a week, the full month’s tuition is still due. Beyond that, missing a second week results in 80% tuition due, missing a third week results in 65% tuition due, and missing a fourth week or a whole month means 50% tuition due. If missed periods occur in several months they can be added and count toward one month or more and the appropriate reduction is applied to the final month in which missed weeks occur. For example, if a boy is away 1 week in June, 2 weeks in July and 1 week in August, this adds up to 4 weeks and the tuition due is full for June, full for July and half for August. Of course, we ask to know in advance if a student will miss our training sessions due to camp or vacation.

In the case of injury that causes missed training beyond one week, I deal with that on a case-by-case basis, as that is something beyond everyone’s control.
