The Olympic gymnastic events include balance beam, tumbling, uneven bars and vaulting. Trampoline skills are also an important part of the class curriculum. This class format allows for continuous movement by the student during class time as well as giving the teacher the flexibility to work with each child individually. We also believe parent involvement is essential in helping toddlers in the progression of their physical development, so we encourage your participation — and it’s required for Wee Cat Classes.
Our building block system allows each preschooler to advance at their own pace. Here are the 4 different levels offered in the preschool program:

We at Spirals Gymnastics, Inc. feel we offer the very finest Preschool, Tumbling and Gymnastics programs in our area. However, we know that we may not always offer exactly what every child needs at all stages of their development. That is why we are willing to accept 100% of your tuition risk.
If after your child’s first month of classes you feel that Spirals does not offer the finest programs of their kind, just contact our office for a full refund of your tuition. No questions asked.
Your volunteer comments and suggestions would, of course, be appreciated.
Although it is preferable to attend your regularly scheduled class, we do allow 2 make-ups per term. The nature of our classes makes it essential to schedule all make-ups in advance and within the month following the missed class.
In order to remain on the student class roll and enrolled in the program, tuition must be paid in accordance to the payment schedule dates on this schedule. When withdrawing from the program it is necessary to inform us in writing two weeks prior to your withdrawal date. A withdrawal form may be obtained in the front office. If the proper withdrawal procedures have not been followed tuition will be due for the entire term and registration fees will not remain current upon withdrawal.
Returned Check Fee
