Welcome to Mercury Gymnastics!

Our mission is to create a positive environment where young people can enhance their skills and performance in gymnastics, trampoline, tumbling, dance and physical fitness.  We encourage and challenge every young person to achieve their "personal best" by strengthening their body, their self-esteem and their confidence.  Our goal is to make your child's experience at Mercury fun-filled and educational. 

 

Your child's abilities will be evaluated ongoing.  Twice a year, in December and April, your child's coach will go over your child's skill chart with you so you can see their progress.  If you have any questions or comments about your child's class or performance before evaluations, please feel free to talk to your child's coach before or after class or make an appointment at the front desk.  Mercury hosts Spring Fling in May where you, along with your family and friends, will be able to view your child's skills in a special weekend performance.

 

Mercury offers you and your children a clean, safe, and fun environment and the highest quality coaching staff in the Kansas City area. Our staff shares and adheres to the philosophies and mission of Mercury Gymnastics.

 

To perform at our best, we ask your help in adhering to the following basic policies:

 

Enrollment - NEED TO KNOW

  • ENROLL - Online - quickest; in person and by phone - we will walk you through the procedures.  You may enroll, transfer and drop anytime.  Tuition is prorated in weekly increments based on your enroll and drop dates.

  • Mercury Gymnastics has the right to move a student to an appropriate class if necessary.

Registration Policy 

  • A $36.00 non-refundable annual registration fee for each student will be auto billed when you register your student for the first time. You will be auto billed $36.00 on your anniversary date (if you are enrolled) to your credit card on file.  To determine the anniversary date, log into your Parent Portal and click on "Payments".  Scroll down to "Recent Transactions".  At this point you will look for the date you last paid a registration fee.  This is your anniversary date, the annual fee will be billed to you on or shortly after this date.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.    . 

  • Only registered gymnasts are allowed beyond the gate.

Dropped Class Policy 

  • If you wish to drop your child from class use the following steps:

  1. Go to our website www.mercurygymnastics.com

  2. Login to the Mercury Gymnastics Parent Portal.  

  3. Go to "Enrollments" and "View Enrollment" for the student you wish to drop from class, click the "Drop" button.  

  4. Choose the "Requested Last Day of Enrollment".   Click on "Request Drop".  Your "Requested Last Day of Enrollment" must be at least 2 weeks from the date the drop request is submitted.  

  • PLEASE NOTE: YOU will continue to be responsible for tuition for your student's classes WHETHER OR NOT YOUR STUDENT ATTENDS CLASS and until your requested drop date is submitted.  A minimum of 2 weeks notice is required to drop a class.

       Please do not rely on your student to verbally let us know that he/she will no longer be attending classes.

Tuition Policy 

  • Tuition is paid monthly via direct debit from any major credit card or debit card on the 15th of the prior month (i.e. October’s tuition is due on September 15th).  Declined payments (expired card, etc.) must be remedied on or before the 20th of the month or you risk losing your class spot to a waiting student.  Tuition is budgeted on a 48 week year which allows for a Winter break in December as well as a one week break in May and a two week break in August.

  • WE DO NOT INVOICE - Monthly tuition reminders will NOT be sent.  We will notify you by email if your tuition is unable to process or is not received.

 

Missed Class Policy 

  • We realize that your gymnast may miss classes due to illness or vacation.  This is taken into consideration when determining the tuition fees.  Therefore, missed classes cannot be prorated due to illness or vacation. However, your gymnast can get a Power Hour pass for Friday.  Power Hour runs every Friday at 9:30 am or 4:30 pm.

 

Weather Policy 

  • We are at the mercy of Mother Nature and want our families to be safe when the weather gets extreme.  

    • Winter Weather - Mercury's weather policy is if the Park Hill School District cancels classes and after school activities, Mercury Gymnastics will also be closed, this includes Preschool, School Age, Tramp & Tumbling, Tumbling, Cheer, Power Hour and Friday PTA Night.  We post our closing on Fox 4, we also put our closings on our answering machine and  Facebook page.  Team kids, your coach will email you about your practice schedule.  

    • Severe Weather - Thunder storms are monitored and coaches will stop class and students will take cover if there appears to be tornado's in the area

 

Safety Policy 

  • A coach will greet your child in the observation area and lead them down to the gymnastics area.

  • All parents that participate on the gymnastic floor are asked to please leave their street shoes upstairs in a purple basket.

  • To help assist us in properly warming up your child for the class, we ask that your child be ready on time.

  • Each gymnast needs to dress properly: shoes and socks placed in a purple basket, long hair tied back, no gum, and appropriate leotard or t-shirt and shorts.

  • Make sure your child utilizes the bathroom before class.  This will help your teacher stay on track and not have to accompany your child back upstairs for the bathroom breaks.

  • Parents are welcome to stay and watch during class.  We ask that parents do not disturb their child's class by coaching them from upstairs.  This is very disrupting to your child and their class.  We also ask that you do not stand at the railing, this blocks other people from observing their children.

  • All food and drink MUST stay in the upstairs observation area.  This will help keep Mercury clean and safe.

  • If siblings are brought, we ask you to properly supervise them and not allow them to run around.  During inclement weather, the concrete floor can be slippery from moisture brought in on people's shoes.

What to Wear

  • Boys or Girls may wear t-shirts and shorts OR Leotards for Girls. NO chewing gum or dangling jewelry. Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face so that it stays up for the entire class.  PLEASE LEAVE JEWELRY ARTICLES AT HOME.  This facility's staff will not be responsible for ANY items that may be lost or stolen.  Be sure your student's personal items are marked with their name.

Arrival and Pickup

  • Be sure your student arrives 5 minutes before (no earlier please) his/her scheduled class time.  Please pick up your student on time. Please inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student.  Instruct your student to wait inside the building and you should escort them from the building to your car.  During peak times the parking lot is crowded.  Please take into consideration that our students may include young children.  Please drive slowly and carefully.  Do not take a chance on your student running to and from your car.
