Athlete Group Placement
Athletes will receive an email invitation to the competitive program. An athletes’ training group placement and hours are determined by the Head Coach and Assistant Head Coach, in conjunction with the competitive coaching staff. The recommendation will depend on when the child starts, the child’s level of ability, their work ethic, attitude, performance, listening skills, progress, etc.
The competitive season runs from July 1st through to June 30th. Fees include 48 weeks of training and are spread over 12 months. These payments are done this way simply for the purpose of easier, more convenient payments. Fees are paid monthly, annually or semi-annually. You can save almost a months training fees when you pay in 1 or 2 installments!!!
The Competitive program takes holidays for 2 weeks in July, 1 week in September and 1 week during the December holiday totalling 4 weeks, hence the season is actually 11 months long. These weeks of no training are not charged in the training fees.
Extra Summer Training Hours
Summer is a great time to get in extra training while the kids are not in school! Monthly fees are determined by the expected training hours from Sept-June. Extra summer hours are billed separately at the hourly rate and are depending on regular training hours. These are usually determined in advance and submitted at the time of registration in one payment.
Most groups will compete a minimum of 3x per season. Athletes in qualifying meets will be aiming to qualify for Provincial, Eastern Canadian or National Championships. There is a cost share fee for each athlete for all meets in addition to the meet fee.
A training suit and competition uniform is required for all competitive athletes as well as a competition gymbag.
Athlete Support Hours
We have amazing parents! Many LOVE to use their talents and be involved in their children’s gymnastics. Our Athlete Support Hour system has one of the lowest parent involvement commitment of any reputable gym. This helps offset the fees for running a competitive program. Parents assist with running competitive related competitions, organize fundraisers and contribute to the overall program spirit that helps their child-athlete thrive! It is for this reason that competitive gymnasts can receive such reasonable training fees, as low as $5.00 per hour! Parents are encouraged to get involved at All Star and contribute to the TEAM spirit that helps promote a positive and encouraging environment. Parents are able to choose their level of involvement.
