Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

1. Register: Complete online registration by clicking here.

2. Get Placed: Once the registration is received, you will receive an email (usually within a week) with enrollment information. All new students are required to complete one month in a beginner class before joining a regular class. We place new students the first week of each month and returning students as soon as a spot is available. Placement options are based on availability. The first month’s tuition will be prorated. Enrollment Fee and tuition must be paid online prior to the first day of class in which your child is enrolled.

3. Pay: You will be provided access to the Parent Portal where you will be able to manage your account, your child’s enrollment, and payments. Pay the $45 annual enrollment fee and monthly tuition per child. There is no contract or minimum months to join.

After this is completed, your child is officially enrolled! Monthly Tuition is what secures 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 automatic payments to avoid this.

How old does my child need to be?

We offer classes for those 3 years and older.

How do you structure your classes?

Our recreational (beginner and intermediate classes) are structured by age and our advanced and team classes are designated by skill. Our gymnastics classes include instruction and development for all gymnastics events. The Cheer class is for motions, jumps, stunting. and tumbling. Our current rec classes are:

  • yr olds (boys and girls together) 6-student max – 60 minute classes
  • 4 & 5 yr olds (boys and girls together) 8-student max – 60 minute classes
  • 6, 7, & 8 yr olds (girls) 8-student max – 60 minute classes
  • 9+  (girls) 8-student max – 60 minute classes
  • Boys 6 and older: Intermediate & Advanced classes (boys) 8-student max – 60 minute classes
  • Cheer: motions, jumps,  stunts, & tumbling (7+, boys and girls together) 8-student max – 60 minute classes

Our more advanced classes include our Pre-team (Little Stars) and Competitive Team (Levels 1-10) are for girls 5 and older who are evaluated and meet the minimum skill and behavioral criteria – class length varies. Students must pass an evaluation and recieve an invitation from the Director for placement in these levels.

What should my child wear to class?

IIn general, clothes should be non-restrictive, but not baggy. Clothes should have no buttons, zippers, snaps, buckles, or strings.

  • NO EXPOSED MIDRIFFS.  Any child arriving with an exposed midriff will not be able to participate in class. 
  • All jewelry should be removed, including:  barrettes, clips, watches, rings, necklaces, and earrings. Stud earrings may be worn. Secure eyeglasses.
  • HAIR: must be pulled up and away from the face.
  • FEET: Shoes and socks are to be removed. Everyone must be barefoot.
  • REC GIRLS: leotards and unitards are best. Tights, leggings, or non-baggy shorts that do not cover the feet may be worn over a leotard or with a shirt or tank tucked in. NO SKIRTS, LOOSE SHORTS, SKORTS, or TUTUS. 
  • BOYS: Sport shorts and a tucked in t-shirt or tank. 
  • CHEER: Sport shorts or leggings and tucked-in t-shirts or tanks.  
  • TEAM: hair must be securely pulled up and away from face (including bangs). Leotards and unitards with or without fitted shorts or leggings only. No t-shirts, tanks, or loose clothing

Can I stay and watch my child during class?

Absolutely!! We have always had an open-gym floor-plan. There are multiple viewing areas (upstairs and downstairs) with bleachers and bleacher seats.

Can I drop my child off for class and leave?

Yes! We do require an adult/gaurdian to stay for the duration of a new student’s first class, otherwise, you can stay or leave as you wish.

We also require 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 are proud to keep our rec class sizes small with a max of 6:1 for 3 year old and 8:1 for older classes 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 positive mental attitude, and shoes to wear in and out of the building, your child can bring a reusable water bottle and anything else they need for practice, such as braces, pre-wrap, and tape. Otherwise, we have water fountains, 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, is when they can move into the advanced (Little Stars – Pre-team) and team classes. See the Class Information page for more details.

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

All new gymnastics students 3-8 year’s old start in a beginner class for one month. Once they complete the beginner class, they can move into any regular recreational class we have with open spots. 

If you think your gymnast is advanced, you may schedule an evaluation for $55. 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. Evaluations may be booked in the Parent Portal under Events.

What happens if we miss a lesson?

It happens and is no big thing We do not provice refunds or credits for missed classes.

Make-up Classes: NO CREDIT IS GIVEN FOR MISSED CLASSES. Make-up classes are not guaranteed. Once you enroll and pay the monthly tuition, your child’s place is guaranteed through the month for the class in which they are registered, whether they attend or not. Because of this hold, refunds will not be issued. 

  • Make-ups are provided in the case of CONTAGIOUS ILLNESSES. Make-up for day(s) missed may be scheduled once the office is provided with a signed doctor’s note for the child. Make-ups are contingent upon class availability and are not guaranteed.
  • Team students are not eligible for make-ups. 
  • All make-ups must be scheduled and confirmed with the office at least 1 week in advance of attendance. Make-up classes are subject to the availability of class times and spaces and cannot be rescheduled. If you miss a make-up class, we will not schedule another one. A limit of ONE make up class will be given per month to those eligible. Classes must be made up within 30 days and will not be carried over. Email alexa@nassergym.com to inquire about make-ups.

How do I pay?

Payments can be made online through the Parent Portal or in-person with cash only. 

We accept Visa, Discover, and Mastercard payments through the Parent Portal or cash in-person. All credit card payments will automatically be surcharged 2.59%. This surcharge does not apply to debit cards.

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.

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 advance out students 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.

If you think your gymnast is advanced, you may schedule an evaluation for $55. 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. Evaluations may be booked in the Parent Portal under Events.

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 think your gymnast is advanced, you may schedule an evaluation for $55. This evaluation will give the coaches an exact understanding of the students skill level and determine if they are qualified and what they may need to be qualified to advance. Evaluations may be booked in the Parent Portal under Events.
