Q.What are the age levels taught at NWGA? A. NWGA starts off with a tot program for walkers thru toddlers, and progresses with recreational instruction for boys and girls through high school. We also offer USAG competitive programs for all levels of boys and girls.
Q.What should my child wear? A. Girls may wear leotards, unitards, or spandex shorts with a tucked in T-shirt. Leg tights are often worn, especially in the winter months. We suggest wearing the footless type for safety reasons. Hair shoulder length or longer should be put up. Boys should wear gym shorts with a T-shirt.
Q.Can I watch? A.Parents are encouraged to watch from our observation balcony (Which has a great view of all areas of the gym!). The balcony has plenty of good seating for watching your gymnast, catching up on some reading, or talking to other parents.
Q.How does my child advance (progress)? A. We have a level program that our staff is trained to use. This program is progressive and encompasses all the standard gymnastics events plus trampoline and dance. All gymnasts will receive a certificate for each level that they pass, and you will receive a report of each level passed.
Q.When can I talk to my child's teacher? A. Time permitting, before or after class is appropriate to speak with your child's teacher. If this short time frame between classes is not enough, please call the gym to schedule an appointment.
Q.What does the annual membership fee cover? A. In order to continue providing your child with the best quality gymnastics program Spokane has to offer, membership fees are used to cover over-all administrative costs, staff training, and insurance.
Q.When is tuition due? A. Tuition is due by your child's first class each month. By prior arrangement, a later payment date may be established.
