Contracts and Payments
Contracts this year, are going to be 2 contracts rather than 1. We will have a contract for tuition and a contract for competition payments. The contract for tuition will be due prior to choreography for your athlete. The competition contract will be sent out and due at a later date. All families are to continue paying both payments however we are breaking the contract into two contracts in order to ease the minds of everyone during this time of uncertainty. Let me remind you that competition payments are NOT just competition payments. This payment includes everything we must do for the season with purchases and planning.
We have already begun purchasing new equipment with the membership fees, including 2 swamp coolers, a tumble tramp skirt and multiple pieces of new instructional equipment. If you have a balance on your account it must be brought current immediately.
Fitting for Gear and Uniforms

We will also be sizing all PREP and TINIES the same date for practice gear. We will size for uniforms during Mini & Tinies Practice times with Sizers we have ordered.

The gym is back open tomorrow and we are asking for your assistance. Recently, a friend of mine who lives in Greeneville had a couple of friends over to their house. His friend had just returned from Florida and had been unknowingly exposed to COVID-19. My friend and his entire family are now positive for COVID-19. Since last week I know personally know 6 families who have all tested positive for COVID-19, since their return from vacation. This is really hitting home for me.
We have several families in our gym with compromised immune systems and this could be a very serious situation for them if exposed unknowingly. We are asking you to help us with this situation. If your family has been to Florida or South Carolina last week please take this week off. We would rather error on the side of caution and have no issues than to take any unnecessarily risks. You will be allowed to make up the classes you miss this week and they will not expire until they are made up.
I hope everyone understands where I am coming from and does not take this personal. I am only attempting to look out for everyone and their best interest. Classes will meet on a regular schedule Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Listed below is the schedule for Wednesday. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We will continue to conduct health surveys and take temperatures upon arrival. The parent room will remain closed until further notice. We will sanitize all athletes prior to entering and exiting the facility. Although this will not completely eliminate the risk it should help to minimize it. We will do everything possible to keep your athlete safe and healthy. Participation is completely voluntary and we will do our best for our families.
