Gym Payment Guidelines and Policies
DEPOSITS & FEES
1. Registration fee of $35 (annual fee).
2. First month’s tuition (tuition will be pro-rated depending on your start date).
3. A deposit equivalent to one month’s tuition will be due at the time of sign up. The deposit will be credited to your last month’s tuition IF we receive 30 days written notice, which is due by the 20th of the month, prior to the month you wish to drop. This must be done in order to receive the full amount of your deposit.
4. Gym registration fees and tuition fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
You may choose to pay your tuition with one of the following option:
1. Automatic draft through a checking or savings account or a monthly debit from a credit card are the most convenient methods.
2. Personal Checks are accepted and cash payments are accepted as well but must be received by the 5th day of the month to avoid a $20 late payment penalty .
2. If you wish to drop your class, A 30 DAY WRITTEN NOTICE MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE TO AVOID THE LOSS OF YOUR DEPOSIT. Your tuition/deposit holds your child’s place in his/her class. If tuition is a month overdue, your deposit will be applied, and your membership with Cheer Station will be terminated until you have replaced your deposit and paid the next month's tuition fees.

REFUND & CREDIT POLICIES
1. There will be no refunds given. If you drop from the CSI program without giving a 30-day written notification, you will forfeit your deposit (last month’s tuition). If you are transferring to one of our All-Star Cheer Teams and are a current gym member, we will transfer whatever amount is available at that time. There will be no transfers for private lesson instruction.
2. Monthly tuition is not pro-rated for holidays since some months have five classes per month instead of four, thus evening out over the year.
