If tuition is not received by the 15th and we have not been notified by you, and your child hasn’t been in class; it is assumed that your child has dropped. Failure to notify us will result in (you) the customer being billed for the full month’s tuition. Remember: Tuition pays for your child’s placement in a class whether or not they attend.

We need to document this information on their registration card along with emergency contact information, and inform their coach. It is best we receive this information at the time of registration.
ATTIRE: Girls are required to wear their hair tied up during class. Please make sure you bring scrunchies or hair ties for your child.

SIBLINGS: Children not enrolled in a class should remain seated and are not allowed on the gym floor.

We do not check the gym every night for items left behind. If we find something we will put it in our "lost and found" area. We only keep it for a limited time. If we do not hear from you in a month; your child’s items may be donated to KCM.
EVENTS: Events are usually scheduled on Friday nights; sometimes Saturday mornings. For some events a child may be 3 and above; for others they must be 5 and above. Current member’s tuition must be paid before your child/children may participate. Guests welcome.

- It is understood that Team KIPS reserves the right to dismiss an athlete from any practice, competition or be removed from the team if their behavior is deemed inappropriate.
- Please be aware that inappropriate displays of behavior from parents can also result in removal of athletes from team, this applies in all situations. Such situations include, but are not limited to: practices, competitions, and team activities. During work out and competitions ALL parents must remain in the stands and refrain from contacting the gymnast. If ignored, the parent(s) and/or gymnast may be asked to leave the facility. In the case of an injury, please try to remain calm. The coach will notify you or come to get you if you are in the facility. PLEASE DO NOT RUN OUT ONTO THE FLOOR!!
