ESGC accepts eftpos at the office, cheques, internet banking transfer or cash. Please send cheque payment to: 89 Apirana ave, Glen Innes, Auckland. Please make sure you put your child's full name and day and time of the class as the reference when making a direct credit or on the back of a cheque.
If paying online by Direct Credit, our acc no is: 12-3030-0503382-00.
The payment at the office will be accepted only if there is a space in class available.
When you enrol for the first time, $15 registration fee is includeed. When you re-enrol next term you are entitled to $15 discount if you payment is received by Friday prior to the start of the next term.
Re-enrolments will be taken on a first in first served basis. After this date all classes will be opened up to new and returning members. To ensure a place for the following term make sure you re-enroll and make payment.
Your space in a class will not be automatically transferred to next term. If the child is booked into a class and a written cancellation has been received more than 7 days prior to the first class then a cancellation fee of $30.00 will be charged. If a child is booked into a class (re-enrolment form filled in and returned to the office) but does not attend classes, the terms fees are still due in full. Less than 7 days notice of a cancellation will still incur full terms fees.
Fees are due before a child is enrolled or booked into a class. If a child turns up to his or her first class before fees have been received by ESGC, the participation will be denied.
Trial classes are to be arranged through the office only and payments must be made during office hours. We can only offer a trial class if we have space, please understand most of our classes run at capacity during the term and we may be unable to offer a trial for a particular class. There is a fee for trial classes that must be paid prior to the class. A payment receipt should be presented to the coach at the start of the class and then handed out in the office with the rest of the payment for the Term if you decide to enroll your child. Note that the trial class books the spot for you only until the end of the class. Any amount paid by way of trial fee will be credited against the term fee if the gymnast continues. Trial fees are as follows:
PG, PG+, General Gym 1hr: $30. General Gym 1.5 hrs and 2 hrs: $35. (The club regrets this charge, but to avoid constant class disruption to our paying members, the club has been forced to introduce this fee to deter the frequent casual freebie)
All invoices are sent out in the first week of term. A reminder notice is sent out 2 weeks later if payment is not received. Monthly statements are emailed to parents with outstanding fees.
If any fees outstanding, then the club reserves the right to not re-enroll that gymnast.
Term fees can & will be corrected in good faith should an error occur in billing, as soon as practical after the error is detected. Gymnasts may not start training if there are any arrears from the previous term unless an application has been submitted and approved by the ESGC Treasurer.
Hours of training:
Gymnasts are invited to join a particular squad or class and must attend and pay for all the hours set for that group. If gymnasts need to finish early or arrive late this does not entitle a discount on fees as all the club’s costs are the same regardless of gymnast leaving early/starting late or missing a session.
Fees are calculated on a term basis, with typically 9-11 weeks in each term (38 weeks per year), generally aligned with the public school terms. New gymnasts starting part way through the term are charged on a pro rata basis. All squads level 2 and higher have 48 weeks per year. All other General Gymnastics classes may have holiday training offered to them at the discretion of their coach.
There are no refunds for withdrawal part way through a term.
All applications to pay in installments must be agreed by the Treasurer before the date fees are due and installments are due by the 1st of each month. To be eligible to pay installments, gymnasts must be training a minimum of two sessions per week.
We don't offer make-up sessions. Gymnasts that miss training sessions due to sickness are not entitled to a fee reduction. However, upon application to the committee, if a gymnast is sick or injured for longer than 4 weeks (with a medical certificate) and the Office is notified before the 4 weeks missed, then parents may be offered, at the discretion of the committee, the option of a 50% credit for that time missed (as long as they are not training at all during this time i.e. if gymnasts are training during this time they are not eligible for this discount) towards next terms fees.
The reason we can not offer make-up lessons is that quality and safety will be compromised if our 500 members were all free to join other classes as and when they wished.
Please note that any special circumstances will be considered if put in writing to the Committee.
No refunds unless medical certificate is supplied. $20 administration fee applies.
Enrollments on the day (no booking) will incure $15 late enrolment fee.
Change of Class:
Any voluntary change of class during the term will incur a $20 administrative fee. There are 2 exemptions:
1. Gymnast moving into a competitive squad by invitation.
2. Cancellation of class due to insufficient number of gymnasts. In this case we offer you a place in other class or we refund you for un-attended lessons if the alternative class offered is not suitable for you
