Policies and Guidelines 

Welcome to River City!

Our mission is to develop happy, healthy, responsible children who value exercise, and to help them fulfill their gymnastics potential in a positive and safe environment.

 

In order to achieve this mission, certain basic policies are necessary to help our business run smoothly and to maintain quality throughout our program.  Please read this carefully so that you are fully aware of our policies and guidelines.  Thank you for adhering to our policies!

Conduct

Participation in gymnastics at River City should be a positive experience for our students. Behavior guidelines must be followed in order to participate in our program. Students must participate and stay with their assigned class. Students can't be allowed to keep other students from learning. If a student's behavior is keeping others from learning or making the class unpleasant for other students, they will be removed from class. We use the following discipline plan for our students:

 

  1. Students will be reminded of what they should be doing.

  2. They will be asked to sit down, to “refocus" near the class until they regain control and are ready to rejoin the group.  Usually, the length is one turn.

  3. The student will be taken to his/her parent to “refocus”.

  4. After rejoining the class, if the behavior occurs again student will be asked to go home for the day.

 

Student Arrival and Pick-Up

Parents are required to stay with all students enrolled in any Tiny Tumbler class.  Your toddler may not be left alone at any time.

 

Students enrolled in any Girls or Boys classes must be supervised by a parent/guardian until the class begins. If you leave while your older child is in class, please be prompt in picking your student up after class. If you will be late or have an emergency, please call and notify the front desk.  No siblings or friends may be left unsupervised in our building at any time.
