*MONTHLY TUITION*
*NO LONG TERM CONTRACT*

We have structured our program so your child can enroll in class at any time on a month to month basis. The number of classes will vary month to month depending on the area’s school calendars and holidays which necessarily means your child may have 3 classes one month, 4 the next or 5 in another. Regardless, we guarantee 48 classes during our “Gym” year from September to August. If your child’s class meets 5 times in one month, we will not charge extra. Consequently, if your child’s class meets 3 times in one month, due to holidays…, you will not receive a credit or make up.

*PAYMENT SPECIFICS*
GymStars Modesto Policy differs, please contact us at (209) 549-1919 for details.

Full payment is required with registration. Tuition payments by check can be mailed or dropped off in our payment box at the front desk. Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express can be used at the front desk or over the phone. Debit Cards can be used at the front desk. We do not accept Money Orders.
Tuitions are due on the 15th of the prior month. A $15.00 late charge per participant will be charged and is immediately due if payment is received after the last day of the month. Example: November tuition is due October 15th and late after October 31st.
Auto Pay Or Not Your Choice:

  • Due date is the 15th of the preceding month.
  • If you choose to pay your balance manually you must do so by the 15th of the preceding month. If you have a balance on your account as of the 16th of the preceding month we will engage the Auto Pay System. You will notice your automatic payment debit or charge between the 17th and the 20th (see example).
  • You can choose between debiting your bank checking or debiting your Visa or Master Card Debit Card or charging on your Visa, Master Card, Discover or American Express card.
  • If the due date falls on a weekend or holiday we process the debit or charge on the previous business day. (See example).
  • (Example: if the 20th falls on a Monday and that day is a holiday or a closed day for GymStars we will process the Auto Pay on the previous business day which would be Friday the 17th. In this example, to avoid the Auto Pay you must pay your account in full by the 15th.)
  • You are responsible to make sure we have the correct bank account information or a credit card on file that is not expired and has charging or debit privileges.
  • It is easy to update the card information. Log on to your Portal and follow the instructions or give us a call or stop by our front desk and fill out a form. Please allow 15 days for processing changes on your auto pay.
  • Should your bank decline the debit or your card company decline the charge or debit a $30.00 fee will be charged to your account and is immediately due. At this time you must pay your account current. The system will attempt to process your auto pay several times prior to the end of the month.
  • If your account is not paid in full by the end of the month a $15.00 per child late fee will be added to your account. Your account balance will be immediately due and payable. The system will attempt to process your auto pay one more time between the 1st and the 5th. If you still have a balance your child will be un-enrolled from class. (To avoid this please call us to make satisfactory payment arrangements prior to the end of the month.)

*ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP ADMINISTRATION FEE*

The Annual Membership & Administration Fee allows GymStars to operate without any long term contracts. Applies to immediate family only. This fee is due upon initial registration and each following year on the participants anniversary month. Membership costs differ by location. Please contact your desired location for current rates.

*DROPPING*

A 30 day written notice is all that is required; with medical reasons being the only exception, (see below). The 30 day notice begins upon receipt of the written notice. ORAL DROP NOTICES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. If a 30 day written notice is not received, you will receive a final bill for one month’s tuition charge. Drop notice forms are available at the front counter.


*MEDICAL REASONS for dropping a class*

For medical situations validated by a written acknowledgement from a licensed medical practitioner, you will be granted a credit prorated from THE DAY WE RECEIVE the written acknowledgement.
A retroactive request for medical credit cannot be granted, as it eliminates our opportunity to fill the vacated class spot.

*MAKE UPS*

Tuition pays for your child’s spot in their class. We know how hectic family schedules can become. As a courtesy, GymStars desires to offer two make-ups per month when doing so does NOT INTERRUPT the safety or quality of classes. All make ups must be completed within one month from date of absence. Please call the Office to schedule make-ups. Make up procedures vary program to program, depending on safety concerns, space, equipment, and teaching ratios. NOTE that a program’s particular make-up policy is already factored into that program’s tuition amount. The gym is closed from time to time for holidays. These days are factored into the tuition averaged out over the year. GymStars reserves the right to refuse to offer a make-up if we feel it will degrade the experience of those children who have registered for and paid for that class. Make-ups are not intended for Developmental and Competitive Students.
