TUMBLING MAKE-UP CLASSES
If you are absent from your group tumbling class, you are welcome to request a make-up class according to the make-up schedule. Scheduling of make-ups require a minimum of 72 hours' written notice and CANNOT be scheduled over the phone. Please plan ahead -- our make-up classes typically fill up two weeks in advance. Go to Forms to print and submit the make-up form via fax or in person. Go to Tumbling Schedule for a list of the days and times of make-up classes.
Make-up classes are only available to students who are currently enrolled in a tumbling class. Make-up classes are limited to five students per instructor. Make-ups do not expire and do not have to be made up in the same session the absence occurred. However, if a tumbler is no longer a currently-enrolled (paid) Tumbling 4 Cheerleading Association student in a group class, any remaining make-up classes are forfeited (i.e., if a student skips a session or their tuition is not paid by the first week of a new session, the student loses any banked make-up classes).
