Parents indicated that they wanted to have more time slots available leading into competition season for private lessons We find private lessons are better suited for gymnasts who are coming to regular practices at least twice a week as it helps reinforce the corrections and learning of skills. We realize this may not be possible for everyone, but this is a very strong suggestion by all of our coaches. Starting September 2017 - in order to schedule private lessons when the schedule is released you must be registered for a minimum of 2 days per week for classes. If there are openings left 1 week prior to a date you are interested in, you are more than welcome to select that date. We have also hired Amber Wanless on full time as a coach with TNT and she will also be doing weekly private lessons along with Danielle, Kristen & Tracy! The schedule for August 2017 will be posted on June 30, 2017 by 11:59pm - HOW DO I BOOK A PRIVATE LESSON?
There will be a link to the google doc on the website under "Private Lessons" & I will e-mail out the link to the team parents, also. You go to an OPEN slot under your desired date and type in your child's first name & last initial. Cancelation Policy: You must cancel your private lesson 24 hours in advance if you can no longer make the private lesson or find a replacement. If you do not follow the cancelation policy you will be required to pay 100% private lesson fee to the scheduled coach.
Private Lesson Costs:
1 gymnast: $40 per hour
2 gymnasts: $30 per hour / gymnast
3+ gymnasts: $25 per hour / gymnastTNT Team Members Training Rule
You cannot take private lessons or classes at another gymnastics facility if you are a member of the TNT Competitive Team. This is not fair to your coaches or to your teammates who are loyal to TNT. You may attend open gyms at another facility on occasion. Xcel team members are not required to train in the summer, but taking off a summer session may effect level placement for the next competition season.Choreography Lessons
Xcel Silver-Diamond levels as well as Level 6-10 will need choreographed routines. Tracy, Danielle & Maly are the only coaches that choreograph routines with TNT. We also bring on Jackie Schellinger who does choreography lessons & she has her own rates. Choreography lessons are for those who wish to have floor & beam routines made up. They are for members and non-members ($15 fee added for non-members).COST (Payable to choreographer directly):
$150 Xcel Plat./Diamond & Level 6-10 & High Schoolers (2 hours)
$100 Xcel Silver-Gold (1 1/2 hours)
**You are responsible for coming in the last 15 minutes to video record the routine(s), which is HIGHLY advised to get the most out of your lesson and for your gymnast to practice with and refer back to.Cancellation Policy:
In the event that you need to cancel a private lesson--you must do so AT LEAST 12 hours ahead of your scheduled private. If you do not give at least a 12 hour notice and your spot is unable to be filled you are required to still pay for your scheduled lesson.
Please contact the gym manage at firstname.lastname@example.org
to schedule your choreography lesson today.
Parents made suggestions after the meeting for a fundraiser to help offset the meet fees. Tracy and I discussed this as well. We will be doing the Rural Route 1 Fundraiser Oct 1-15 this Fall & is a great way to help offset the competition fees!
We look forward to an exciting 2017-18 Competition Season!
Please let us know if you have any questions!
