Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enroll?

We ask all parents to create a member account by registering on our parent portal.

After you register you will have access to NOLA Gymnastics Parent Portal (our online class registration program).

How do I become a member?

We ask all parents to create a member account by registering on our parent portal. You will be required to sign our online waiver prior to attending any NOLA Gymnastics events.

Please click on Parent Portal / Register to complete this process. Once you have created an account and have your login and password, you can request a class to enroll in.

What should my child wear?

For all students loose fitting clothing must be worn to allow freedom of movement. Our only request is that the clothing be free of zippers and buttons. Girls are to wear a leotard and a ponytail. Ponytails must be worn on gymnastic days to avoid injuries and promote safety. No bulky hairpieces or jewelry. Hair bands or any kind of hair tie barrettes are not allowed. Long hair should be securely tied back. When glasses are worn, wear a safety strap to keep the glasses on - there is a lot of flight and rotation involved, therefore glasses should be secured.

You may purchase a NOLA Leotard at the gym, please ask coach Gretchen.

What is the returned checks fee?

There is a $35 charge for the first time a check is returned to us and a $40 charge for the second time. NOLA Gymnastics LLC will not redeposit your check. The only remedy for this oversight is CASH, and must be paid by your child’s next class.

Do you accept credit card payments?

We do not accept payments using credit cards.

Make-ups For Missed Classes

We offer a make-up class for those students who miss their regular class due to illness or injuries. The make-up is available only in classes that are not full, therefore a student must call ahead to be added to the make-up list. There is no refund, credits or pro-rating due to missed classes.

General Information Before The Class

Please arrive to your class 5-10 minutes earlier.

Warm ups & proper stretches is very important so please don’t be late for your class.

Speak to your child about listening to the instructor and following directions.

Please advise your child that she must never attempt a new skill or use an apparatus with out permission from the instructor.

Please check and make sure that child uses the bathroom prior to beginning of the class.

Chewing gum candy or food is not allowed during class.

Slippery socks, oversized clothing which may hinder or endanger student safety are absolutely not allowed. Courtesy is the first rule of the safety. Any student acting in an unsportsmanlike manner that endangers another student will be dismissed from the class immediately.

Coach Gretchen is available to discuss aspects of the program, ability level and progress only after the class or any time over the phone during morning hours.

Can I enroll if semester has started?

Yes. Students may register at any time, on a space-available basis. A student who registers after the start of any given term will have their tuition pro-rated to reflect only the number of classes they will be attending.

Parent Observation and Supervision

NOLA Gymnastics welcomes parent and guest observation of classes, however, in the interest of safety, the following must be strictly enforced:

  • Parents, sibling, guests and anyone else not enrolled in the class being held at the time, must remain in the designated seating / waiting area at all times. This area's boundary is marked by the long half wall barrier.
  • Under no circumstances are adults or children not enrolled in classes allowed on any equipment or matting.
  • Class children should remain seated in the waiting area prior to the start of classes and are not allowed on equipment or matting before that time or after the conclusion of the class.
Participation Ribbon Program

To help encourage children in their pursuit of learning gymnastics skills, participation ribbons are given out on the last week of each term. We reward children with a colorful reminder of the fun they experienced and the skills achieved during that term! The entire set from a years-worth of classes makes for a great display in your child's room and sentimental keepsakes for years to come!
