Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

1. Register: Click “Register Here” to complete the enrollment form.

2. Pay: After completing the Enrollment Form, Click Pay Here” to pay the $45 annual enrollment fee and $25 depost per child. This deposit goes toward your tuition should yoour child remain enrolled after the trial class. There is no contract or minimum months to join.

3. Get Placed: Once the registration and deposit are recieved, you will recieve a call (usually within a week) to place your child in a class. Placement options are based on availability. During this call, the Annual Membership Fee and Monthly Tuition will be explained. The first month’s tuition will be prorated. Enrollment Fee and trial class/deposit must be paid online prior to the first day of class in which your child is enrolled.

After this is completed, your child is offically enrolled! Monthly Tuition is what securs your child’s spot in class. If payment is not received by the 7th of each month, your child’s spot may be forfeited. We highly recommend setting up auomatic payments to avoid this. Let us know if you’d like to setup up ACH with the office.

Can I stay and watch my child during class?

Absolutely!! We have always had an open-gym floorplan. There are multiple viewing areas (upstairs and downstairs) with bleachers an dbleacher seats. There is also a playroom for young children if you have little ones with you that need a little activity.You must remain with your child in this playrioom area.

Can I drop my child off for class and leave?

Yes! We do ask that you stay for the duration of you’re child’s first class, otherwise, you can stay or leave as you wish.

We also ask that you enter and exit the gym with your child instead of dropping them off and picking them up from the parking lot.

How big are the classes? 

We also ask that you enter and exit the gym with your child instead of dropping them off and picking them up from the parking lot. We are proud to keep our class sizes small with a max of 8:1 students to coach ratio. We believe this benefits the interaction between the students and their coaches, leading to quicker advancement of skills. 

What does my child need to bring?

Besides a positve mental attitude, your child can bring a resuable water bottle and anything else they need for practice, such as braces, pre-wrap, and tape. Otherwise, we have water foundtains, hand sanitizer, and chalk. 

What should I expect my child to learn in the rec classes?

Depending on their age, our classes will teach your child how to do the basic skills for gymnastics on Bars, Beam, Floor, and Vault. When they achieve every skill, that is when they can advance into the next class where they learn harder skills and prepare for team.

How do I determine which class my child should be in?

If you are unsure which class your child should be in, you may schedule an evaluation for $20. This evaluation will give the coaches an exact understanding of what your child already knows, and our coaches can put her/him in the correct class. Call us today to schedule an evaluation!

What happens if we miss a lesson?

Make up classes are allowed in case of sickness or an emergency in the immediate family.

Make up classes have to be scheduled in the front office, and can only be made up in the month a class is missed. One make up class is allowed a month. 

How do I pay online?

Payments can be made online on our website, at nassergym.net/pay-here, for tuition, private lessons, birthday party deposits, etc. If there is not an option for your payment on our website, please give us a call and we will be happy to take your payment over the phone.

Are sibling discounts available?

Sibling discounts are applied to our annual membership fee and monthly tuition. When an additional child is enrolled, they receive a $5 discount to both of those fees.

Beginner classes range from 45-60 minutes. For more details, please visit our online schedule posted on our website at https://nassergym.net/class-schedule/.

Will my child practice all events during their class? (Bars, Beam, Floor, and Vault)

For our beginner classes, our goal is to take the children to 3 out of 4 events during a practice. Our team, will split their time on all 4 events since they practice for longer hours.

How long does my child have to be in a class before they get to move up to the next level?

At Nasser, our goal is to prepare your child for our Competitive Team by teaching the proper progressions. Each child is moved up on an individual basis. When your child is ready to move up, our coaches will let you know. You may also schedule an evaluation at any time to see what your child needs to work on.

How can my child participate in the competitive team?

Any of our gymnasts in Level 1 or higher have the opportunity to compete. If you would like to see if your child is able to be on those teams, you may request an evaluation for $20 to see which class your child should be in. To schedule an evaluation, please contact us at either nassergym@yahoo.com or (251) 479-9311.
