- Communicate with your child’s instructor or coach. We encourage communication
between teacher and parent. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher by phone; Brookfield – 782-3430, Waukesha 549-3344 or direct your questions to the office. We encourage you to share any and all
ideas you might have for our program. Our program cannot grow unless there is open communication between teacher and parent.
- Let the instructor do the teaching. We ask that you do not coach your child from the
sidelines as this only serves to distract your child and disrupt the flow of the class.
- Keep siblings occupied. Only those students who are participating in a class are permitted
in the gym.
- Be on time for class beginning/ending. Gymnasts should be picked up when their class is
over. We are not responsible for them before or after their scheduled class time.
- Check with your child for handouts. Also, be sure to read the signs posted in the entry
way. We always post and send home notices of any gym closings and schedule changes.
The class fee balance should be paid prior to the first day of class. Payments may be
made at the office, by mail or online (Brookfield only). If the full balance cannot be paid by the beginning of class, please speak with the office manager. If the balance is not paid on
time, a $25.00 late fee will be added to your balance EACH MONTH the balance is delinquent.
