Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How often is tuition due?

A.We divide the year into six sessions, averaging 7-9 weeks per session. Tuition is due in advance of each session on or before each Priority Due Date. For your convenience, we offer a credit card “auto pay” option so that you will never miss a PDD!

Q. What is the Priority Due Date (PDD), and why do you have it?

A. Our Priority Due Date (PDD) is the last possible date by which Current Students may pay tuition in order to maintain their current class spot. After the PDD, our computer system automatically deletes unpaid students from the roster and new students are placed in vacancies. The PDD is approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the next session. Priority Due Dates.

Q. Can I observe class?

A. Parents and siblings are always welcome to watch the weekly progress of our students. Only two requirements:

  1. Viewing is limited to the lobby area. Parents and sibling are not permitted on the gym floor.
  2. Parents are not allowed to converse with students during class times.

We have learned from years of experience that these rules are necessary. Speaking with your child from the lobby area is very distracting and could lead to serious injury!

Q. Do you close when the schools have a holiday or “snow day”??

A. To ensure consistent programs, we are open for most holidays (e.g. Columbus Day, Presidents Day). Because, we sit between many different school districts, we do not follow the closing decisions of any particular district. Please call the office or check the website to receive any closing information. Such information will be updated regularly.

Session Information

*If your child’s class day falls on a date that we are closed for a Holiday, please contact the office to schedule a make-up class! Tuition will not be pro-rated for holiday closings.

Absences & Make - Ups

Due to the popularity of our classes, many run at full capacity, therefore we may be unable to accept make-ups in them. Please make every effort to attend your regularly scheduled class time. Make-ups depend on safety concerns, space, equipment, and teaching ratios. School age students are asked to attend one of our 2 hour long open gyms, for all make-ups. To optimize learning, make-ups are asked to be completed with in one session's time of the missed class.

Unfortunately, we are not able to credit or refund for missed classes.

Additional Information

CURRENT STUDENTS

To continue in your current class, please PAY TUITION BEFORE THE PRIORITY DUE DATE (PDD) to guarantee your class spot! In addition, if you need to change your class day/time, we will gladly accommodate your request (assuming there is a vacancy in your desired class). Please be advised that there are NO REFUNDS or credits for missing a class.

NEW STUDENTS

Our open enrollment policy allows your child to join us at anytime (as long as there is a vacancy in your desired class). If a class is full, your child’s registration form will be dated and their name will be placed on a waiting list. After the Priority Due Date (PDD) the office will place new students into classes based on the order in which we received the registrations.

TRAFFIC FLOW

We occupy Units 101 & 102, with entry made through the North Driveway. For your safety, we ask that you enter through the NORTH driveway, and when leaving, please drive around the back of the building and exit via the SOUTH driveway. This alleviates congestion and promotes safety. Please do NOT park in front of the entry way to Unit 101- 104. For your child’s continued safety, please enter the building to pick up your child. No child is allowed to wait in the parking lot for pickup. Thank you!

PROPER ATTIRE

Girls = Wear a leotard. No tights, socks or jewelry. Hair must be pulled back!
Boys = Wear a T-shirt tucked into athletic shorts (no buckles or zippers).

PAYMENT SPECIFICS

Full payment is required with registration. Payment may be made by check, cash, Discover, MC or Visa. Please make checks payable to Palmer Sports, Inc.
NSF Check Policy: If your check is returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF), a $25 processing fee will be automatically charged to your account.

ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEE

An annual administration/insurance fee is required of all students at time of enrollment, or each August if previously enrolled.  This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and is NOT transferable.

This fee defrays administrative and insurance costs, and if current, it entitles each student to priority status over new students, even if that student is not enrolled in class at the moment.

FAMILY DISCOUNT

At Palmer’s, only the most expensive tuition in your immediate family, pays full price.  All additional siblings are discounted 10%! (Discount does not apply to team students).

MULTIPLE CLASS DISCOUNT

Since many students choose to attend classes more than once a week, each additional class will be discounted 10%! (Discount does not apply to team students).

  • No siblings or friends are allowed on any equipment. Only registered students are allowed on the gym floor.
