How do I pay for MEKS classes?
It's easy to log in to your MEKS Parent Portal account and pay via credit card. You also have the option of saving your card on file digitally so payments can be automatically processed. We also accept cash, checks and money orders at the front desk. Payments for all classes are due on the first of the month.
What should my child wear for class?
Leotards are ideal for girls. We have plenty to choose from in Stubby's Pro Shop! If your child doesn't have a leo, she should wear something comfortable that won't constrict movement, is not too baggy and without zippers, hooks or other embellishments that may cause injury. Boys may wear a tee shirt and shorts or a step-in/singlet with shorts.
Do you have classes for boys?
YES! All our Parent & Tot and Pre-School and Tumbling classes are co-ed. We also have an offering of Flip & Flex classes designed just for boys, where we focus on strength, agility, flexibility, obstacle courses and tumbling.
What are your term dates?
MEKS classes bill monthly. You are not obligated for more than a month of classes at any time. Once enrolled, we assume your child will continue on unless you stop at the desk and cancel lessons two weeks before the next month. Once billed, class fees are non-refundable.
How are your coaches trained?
All of our coaches follow a standard curriculum designed to help gymnasts learn progressively. All coaches go through an extensive training process and most have been gymnasts in the past. We offer on-going quarterly training to ensure all coaches are up-to-date on the newest information and training techniques. We are very lucky to have an amazing team of coaches with excellent teaching experience as well as gymnastics skills.
Can we still join your classes after the term has started?
Classes are billed monthly and you may start at any time. There's no need to wait for the beginning of another session. We will simply pro-rate your fees if you start classes in the middle of the month.
Can parents watch?
Of course! We have a parents' area located upstairs with access to free Wi-Fi. We also sell snacks and drinks at the front desk. It's not necessary for team parents to stay if they don't wish, but we welcome all recreational gymnastics parents to stay while their children are in class.
What is your ratio of coaches to children?
Our Parent & Tot and Pre-School class ratio is 1:6. Our gymnastics and tumbling class ratio is 1:8.
