DGA Rules and Policies
Behaviour – Any child who is unable to follow the coach’s instructions or harasses other children, puts his/her own safety and other gymnasts at risk, may be asked to withdraw from the program, and any fees paid in advance will be refunded.

Parents/guardians are required to supervise their children before and immediately after class. In cases where you are going to be late picking up your child, please let us know. Siblings not attending class must be supervised by an adult/parent/guardian.
Canceled Classes – If we, Dakota Gymnastics Academy, have to cancel a class for any reason and you paid for it, we will provide a make-up for that class. There are no refunds or make-up classes for sessions that have been canceled due to inclement weather.
Feedback – We welcome any comments, questions, or suggestions! It is important to us that Dakota Gymnastics Academy is something we are all proud to be a part of.
Rejection – Dakota Gymnastics Academy, as a private club and member of Manitoba Gymnastics, reserves the right to reject any members who are not respecting the rules and policies.

Class fees are not pro-rated due to holidays and no make-up classes will be offered.
The annual insurance registration fee is non-refundable. This fee is paid once per year. If you have multiple children attending classes, the fee needs to be paid for each child.
You are eligible to request a refund within the first three weeks of the course beginning, however, no reimbursements will be honored after the third session, with the exception of a doctor's note being provided. Unless a medical note is presented, no refund will be made after the third lesson. Refunds are subject to a $20 administrative fee as well as the cost of classes that have already been held. Please notify us the day before your class begins if you wish to cancel or there will be a charge for that class.

As a parent, you are responsible for helping your child develop their own unique personality and interests. The more time and resources you can dedicate to your child’s education, the more prepared they will be for the challenges of life. Fortunately, many organizations offer financial assistance for kids aged 18 and under for items such as sports equipment, uniforms, or registration fees. Both Jumpstart and KidSport have national programs that help thousands of children across Canada pursue their passion every year.
