Recreational Classes

Program Changes

Starting in January all Parent & Tot, Preschool, and Kindergym classes will be switched to a monthly billing cycle. This allows for an easier time when transitioning through possible future Covid regulations. The Fall Semester will run September 7th – December 21st.

The following changes will apply to our programming for ages 6 and up where we are evaluating skills.

Previously, we were running 10 week sessions of “Badge Classes.”  These sessions and levels were created by Alberta Gymnastics and required an athlete to pass every skill before advancing to the next level.  Our team at WWGC saw some frustrations with athletes not progressing as much as we would like them to.  We also found a decrease in value if an athlete needed to repeat an entire session to only master one or two skills.

 

Continuous Gymnastics With Monthly Billing:
  • After you have paid your annual AGF Fee, your account will be billed on the first business day of each month after your initial enrollment unless:
    • You come in before the first of each month to pay an alternative way 
    • You complete the one month’s notice of withdrawal form which is located on the footer of our website or by clicking HERE.  Once we receive your withdrawal submission, you will be billed for the next month before your athlete’s spot will be forfeited. 
    • or up until June of every year, whichever comes first.  
  • To encourage athlete progression we have increased our multi-class recreational discounts.  Any athlete that enrolls in two classes will receive 35% off of the second class and 50% off of any additional classes!  We have added more dance, flexibility and strength classes that would pair nicely with any of our programming.
  • Please note: our increased discount rates only apply to our monthly billed recreational classes. Parent & Tot, Pre-school and Kindergym programs are only eligible for the 10% multi class and sibling discounts.
Advancing Levels or Switching Classes
  • Our monthly programming will resemble more of competitive team structured practices.  We find more value for the coaches and athletes if they are continuing to progress with a consistent coach and group of athletes.
  • Coaches will be continuously watching their athletes master and progress skills, and so your athlete could potentially advance levels every month if he/she is excelling at a rapid rate!
  • Changing Classes:  If you would like to switch classes for a coaching reason, schedule conflict or your child needs to move up or down a level, we can do that without having to wait for a new session!
  • Advancing: We are going to do our BEST to have our coaches be coaching three consecutive levels/ages on the same day so that when your athlete is ready to advance, they won’t skip a beat because they can just move to a later time slot on the same night with their same coach, and will hopefully see familiar faces of others that have also advanced from their previous class.

AGF Insurance Updates

AGF Year runs from July 1,2020- June 30, 2021

Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF) Updates

AGF, Alberta’s Governing Sports Organization, requires all coaches, clubs, and athletes to pay an annual membership and insurance fees.  The annual membership renews every July 1st.  Any athlete joining a program, camp or team after this date is required to pay the annual membership fee and sign a new waiver.  The basic membership fee is $55 per athlete.  Trampoline focused classes start at $95 per year.

Trampolines are once again covered in our insurance

Our recent insurance policy renewal has just re-instated trampolines into all of our recreational programs! This is fantastic news and we are working on certifying our coaches with the proper trampoline courses.  This ensures our club and coaches are minimizing any risks so that our insurance fees do not raise, and trampolines will hopefully remain in our coverage for the years to come!

 

Online Waivers

AGF’s new insurance policy also allows us to accept online waivers! Click HERE to complete a waiver for your athletes (and yourself if you are a parent participating with your child in a Parent & Tot Class!)  A new waiver must be completed every year.

Parent & Tot Classes are your child’s first opportunity to explore gymnastics in a fun, safe and parent participated class.  Parents will ALSO be required to complete an online waiver for the parent participating in the class, as well as for the athlete.

Parents are required to wear a mask on the floor when participating in a Parent & Tot Class.


  Pre School & KinderGym is your child’s first experience in an unparented class! We require a caregiver to remain in the building during the entire class time. Our staff is not permitted to assist children with any bathroom needs, so it is important for a caregiver to be present for those times!

Previously we were following the Badge Program which labeled classes by color.  Below is the order of classes we were previously using and what that would now transition over to.  If you are unsure what class your child would be in, you can call the gym to schedule an assessment for $20.

These classes will run September 8th-June 21, 2021.  To withdrawal from a class, you must complete our one month’s notice of withdrawal form..  Once we receive this form, you will be billed for the next upcoming and final month in full.  Your athlete will still be encouraged to come to the final month, but this allows us enough administrative time to contact families on our waiting list and transition your child out of our programming until your ready to enroll again in the future!
