Summer News Letter

  

Summer Greetings ASA families! 

We are off to a great start to the summer months and have a lot to share with you. 

Our member growth has been beyond our expectations and we feel so blessed by all the families we have met and witnessing all the success of our students! As we grow, we are always making necessary changes to maintain business excellence and to improve on the All-Star Academy experience. 

*New to our non-competitive Cheer program, and coming soon, are classes designed to help improve on specific skills needed for community Cheer programs. If your child shows interest in Cheer, now is the time to get them started on building the skills needed to be involved in all the game time fun!  We are currently listing these classes on our website and they are ready for sign ups! These classes include, Stunting, Flyer Flexibility, Jumps, Back Handspring and Cheer Clinics! They begin July 1st! Check our website for class times and days.  Sign up today! 

You asked for a class just for boys and we heard you! JUST BOYS TUMBLING is designed and up to the task of utilizing that “all-boy” energy through trampoline, tumbling and obstacle course lesson plans. This class is for ages 5-13 on Saturdays from 11:30-12:30 beginning July 7th!  Sign up today! 

Water bottles are welcome here at All-Star and we encourage your athlete to bring one (water only please). Students are to take their water bottle out to the gym area cubbies. The instructors allow for a water break or 2 during the class time. Please remember to collect your water bottle at the end of class. 

Summer Camp is June 19th, 20th and 21st and almost full and is going to be a lot of fun! Call today if you want one of the last spots! 

Closed days are listed on our website and posted throughout the gym. Please check often for any changes. Some closed days are a 5th week (never charged) and do not fall under the make up policy. Please check in with the front desk after a class is missed to schedule a make up. Make up classes and Open Gym Pass ‘pick up” are only valid when signed up in current session and only date back 2 consecutive paid sessions. 

Due to some increased cost we are slightly increasing tuition cost in some of the programs. Don’t worry, it’s minimal and still provides 60 minute lesson plans. These price increases begin August 1st.

Kindernastics ……………………………$70

Trampoline & Tumbling…………….$74

Recreational Gymnastics…………..$84

Cheer Tumbling…………………………$74 

Same great Private Lessons, same great price, but must be paid for at scheduling. This is due to an increase in skipped lessons while still providing an instructor and gym time for the scheduled lesson.  If scheduling multiple lessons, you only pay one ahead, you do not have to pay for all of them.  You can use our EFT program for your convenience. Stop at the front desk to sign up for an EFT. Private lesson fees are non-refundable. 

Come join our great team! With our rapid growth, we are looking for office personnel to job share the current open position of 25 to 30 hours a week and we are also taking applications for instructors for the Fall season. Please stop at the front desk for an application if you or someone you know may be interested. 

The office expansion has been a great addition to our space but is still under construction. We now have a door that swings out into the observation area, so we ask that we keep the open area near the office and office window clear from standing or kids playing. We need this area for staff to move in and out of the office area and see out the window. Thanx for your cooperation. 

Thanx to all the great feedback we get from all of you as we continue to make the All-Star Academy experience great for everyone. 

Have a fun and safe Summer!

Team ASA

Inclement Weather – Please always check the website before heading to class. 

When a class is missed please check with the front desk to see availability for a make up class.  Due to our growth and class space, only classes that are up to 2 consecutive paid sessions past fall under our make up policy.  This helps to keep our class sizes manageable. If space is not available, you will get an Open Gym pass for each class missed.  5th week days are not eligible for make up.

A new addition to our gym is the All-Star Bell ! The bell was a gift from our family and is engraved with the quote “EVERY CHALLENGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SUCCESS! It is dated the date of Madison’s car accident as a reminder that everything happens for a reason and to encourage to continue to reach for excellence even in our trials.  When our gymnasts, tumblers and cheerleaders reach a goal, they will come to ring the bell to celebrate their success! When you hear the bell ring, please applaud their efforts! 

Class sizes at All-Star are designed with the USAG recommendation of 8 to 1 ratio.  This is a guideline, not a limit.  At times you will see more than 8 students with 1 instructor. This can be due to unexpected signups after our staff has been scheduled, an instructor is momentarily working with another class and will rotate into the next class, students taking the class as a make-up, and possibly an instructor is absent due to illness or other reason. No matter the class size, instructors give all students instructions to work at their stations with each other and independently while the instructor places and rotates their position where necessary according to the lesson plan. 

ALL-STAR ACADEMY EXHIBITION – our gymnasts, tumblers and cheerleaders have been working hard to learn new skills and we want to highlight those accomplishments and share them with their families and friends. On April 20, 2018, we will be hosting an exhibition that will be performed by our members!  Family and Friends are all welcome to this free event.  Save the date!

Summer Gymnastics Camp dates are June19,20 and 21. Each day is 11am to 3pm filled with lessons, activities and a Tumbling show! $130 (non-refundable). Sign up today! 

Please feel free to let us know of any concerns or ideas you may have.  We are always striving to make All- Star Academy a safe and fun environment for everyone!
