Membership Invoice – This is due prior to the child first class at WDYC. This can be paid for via deposit or at the office. If you wish to pay by Cheque or Cash please let us know so we can make arrangements. We cannot allow children to participate in classes if their membership invoice is not paid.

You will be invoiced your Membership invoice in December for the following year. This is due prior to classes starting in January. Your child will not be able to attend classes unless the membership invoice has been paid.

Family Holiday Policy
To allow us to timetable staff and offer classes for all members terms must be paid in full and your child’s space in the class is secured for the entire term.
If you are going on holiday for part of the term we can put your account on hold for a Minimum of 2 weeks at one time and a Maximum of 4 weeks during the year. This must be approved by management prior to the term starting. If you wish to request this please email email@example.com
Sickness & Make-up Policy
If your child is unwell or you are unable to attend a session we do offer Make-up lessons. This is dependant on spaces available. If you are unable to attend a session please contact the office prior to the class and we will organise a make-up session. If there is no availabilities at this time we will put the make-up on your account to be used during the term. Make-ups expire at the end of each term and must be organised prior to the class via phone or email.
If your child is injured during class then we will put your account on hold and secure their space in the class indefinitely until they return to gym. If your child is injured outside of the gym we will follow the same procedures as long as we have a medical certificate for them. This can be done retroactively.
Graduation and Term Rollover Policy
At the end of each term we email all members who have graduated out of their current class to move them to a more advanced class. At the end of each year we email all members who are now age eligible for a different class to move them. All other members are rolled over to their current classes unless due to staffing or space requirements we need to move class days or times.
If you are not returning next term please let the office know as soon as you can as there may be people on the waitlist for your child’s spot in that class.
Internal Event Policy
During the year we hold 2 main internal events, Winter and Celebration Carnival. All eligible children will be invited and invoiced for the event. If you would like to attend the event payment is required prior to the closing date. If you would like to be removed from the event please contact the office, any unpaid entries will removed from the event after the closing date. A draft schedule is sent out with the invite but is subject to change dependant on entries. A confirmed schedule will be sent out at least 1 week prior to the event.
External Event Policy
There are many external events which WDYC participates in during the year. Gymnasts will be invited to these events dependant on their eligibility. All invoices must be paid prior to the WDYC closing date which is 1 week before the official event closing date (normally 4-6 weeks before the event). Any unpaid entries after this time will not be entered into the event.
Schedules for these event are not normally released until after entries have been accepted meaning we will not know which day or time for most events until 1-2 weeks prior to the event. As soon as we have received the schedule we will send out this information.
Any gymnasts who withdraws from the event for any reason besides medical will forfeit their entry fee.
Medical withdrawals need to be completed within 24 hours of the event with medical certificate so we can send through to the organisers. Normally the organises will refund 80% of the entry fee for medical withdrawals this will be credited to the gymnasts account unless a refund is requested by the parent complete with Bank Details.
