What are the rules and policies of V-Force Elite?

Policies at V-FORCE Elite

A parent must fill out an application; pay tuition; and sign the release forms to have their child enrolled in a class at V-Force Elite. Please notify the office of any changes to your contact information. To Cancel Enrollment a parent must fill out a withdrawal card one week prior to the end of the month. If a student attends classes within any given month, tuition is due for the entire month. V-Force Elite does not pro-rate for students who withdraw mid-month. Any make-up classes scheduled after the student’s drop date will automatically be cancelled.

Rates: The number of hours per week the gymnast attends class determines the monthly fee. Monthly fees are based on 4 weeks of classes per month.

Tuition: Tuition is due on the 1st of the month and becomes late after the 10th. A $10 late fee will be assessed for payments that are received after the 10th. Participation will be denied after the 20th of the month. There is an annual membership fee of $25 per student.

Returned checks: A $25 service charge will be assessed. V-Force accepts cash, check, credit card, and auto pay.

Registration: Gymnast that drops out of class for one month will have to re-enroll. The gymnast’s place will not be held if they drop. A gymnast’s spot may be held by paying half of the monthly tuition.

Progress Reports: Our coaches keep track of each child’s progress on skill sheets. These skill sheets list all of the skills your child needs to master before they can move up to the next level. Once your child has demonstrated they can consistently perform a skill well, that skill will be “checked off” on their skill sheet. After they have mastered all or most of the skills for their level, your child will be advanced to the next level.
