What is the difference between the ChampionsTX Annual Membership Fee and the program fee? We separated the fees this year into two smaller, even more, budgeted fees, so that they are more tailored to what you are participating in. The ChampionsTX Annual Membership Fee includes insurance, account processing and correspondence, and the camps and special events The program fee is specific to the class you’re enrolling in. Not all classes require the same items, so this fee is different depending on what you’re enrolling in. See information on program pages.
Camp Refund Policy: Staff is hired and supplies are bought and prepared based on the number of enrolled children in each age group. In order to prepare a first-rate out of this world camp experience for your child, ChampionsTX devotes an extraordinary amount of time and effort to plan and purchase age-appropriate crafts, activities and staff with each specific child in mind. On that note, we hope you will understand that our cancellation policy is as follows: Payment is due in full at the time of enrollment and is non-refundable. No refunds are given for camp. If a request to reschedule is received at least 7 days in advance before the reserved camp begins, we will be happy to change your camp dates. Siblings are welcome to use camp days/weeks. If a child wakes up ill on the day they are scheduled for camp, a doctor’s note must be provided. You may use the week you missed in the alternate week. If your child misses the last week of camp, no makeup camps will be given. Requests to transfer camps must be received in writing 7 days before the camp start date (of which you are currently enrolled) to waya.frontdesk@ChampionsTX.com to avoid the $35 transfer fee. Request to transfer less than 24 hours before the start of camp will be charged for one day of camp in addition to the $35 transfer fee. All transfers are subject to availability. Makeups/refunds are not offered for missed camp days.
Party Policy: Staff is hired based on the party package you book. Once a date has been secured no refunds or credits will be given. We will move your date for unforeseen Illnesses and accidents. If you notify us of a cancellation within 24 hours of notice, we will be able to move your party date.
Fun Friday Policy: If you notify us of a cancellation up to 7 days out from your scheduled date, you will receive a full credit to your ChampionsTX Account. If you notify us of a cancellation between 24 hours out from your scheduled date, you will receive a 50% credit to your ChampionsTX Account. If you notify us of a cancellation with less than 24 hours of notice, we will be unable to give credit. All transfers are subject to availability.
Cancellation Policy: All tuition paid is non-refundable. In order to drop from a class or program, we need written notice to email@example.com by the 20th of the month. If it is after the 20th we will be unable to drop you until the next month.

Teams are considered a full-year commitment because of our team bond and so please consider your decision to join one of our higher level workouts carefully before accepting your team invitation. You will be automatically dropped at the end of the school-year season (May).
Immediate Drop Option: In the event that your child sustains an injury that prevents them from participating (by Dr. orders) for an extended period of time, please contact our office for policy assistance.
Transferring Classes: Let us help you find the PERFECT replacement spot for your Champion! Transfer requests must be made through the office to ensure the correct skill level and availability.
PARENT WATCH POLICY: Parents are welcome to watch their child anytime in our parent watch area. However, for safety reasons and in order not to distract the students, siblings who aren’t enrolled should remain off the mats and equipment. There is a kids play area available for active toddlers. Please clean up toys and games after your children. We also ask that all parents stay off the gym floor and any mats for safety/liability reasons if choosing to watch your athlete(s) as surfaces around the gym are uneven and athletes rotate around the gym. We also offer official parent watch days throughout the year, including an end-of-year award ceremony in May.
MISSED CLASSES: Class tuition reserves a spot in the class your child is enrolled in, and therefore tuition is not based on attendance. If notified in advance of absences, make-ups can be arranged. Please call up 48 hours before you would like to do the makeup, so we can check if the classes have a spot. If the class is full, you’ll have to check back in closer to the class to see if someone else is going to be missing.
MAKEUPS: We are proud to be one of the few gyms to offer makeups! Make-ups must be scheduled with the office to ensure there is enough space and that we are keeping our coach: student ratios for great classes. Make-ups are for currently enrolled students only. If you drop, make-ups are forfeited. Please alert the office that you will be missing your class by emailing or calling your program director so that another child can makeup in your spot and any workout plans can be adjusted. Make-ups must be done in classes of the same level. If you are absent from your make-up class, you do not get to reschedule without a 24 hr notice to our office via email or call.
CALENDAR & GYM CLOSINGS: Follow the calendar at ChampionsTX.com/Calendar for closures and other dates. You do not pay for any planned closures, such as Winter Break, as they are not calculated into tuition. ChampionsTX generally follows the school district/ WAYA decisions in the case of inclement weather. Check Website and Facebook.com/ChampionsTX for up to date weather closings. Competitive teams follow separate schedules. Please email our competitive Coach for more information at Sophia.solum@championsTX.com
ARRIVAL / PICK-UP: Be sure your student arrives 5 minutes before (no earlier please) his/her scheduled class time and please make sure your child takes care of water and bathroom needs before class so it doesn’t take away from their time. To ensure your child’s safety, upon arrival at ChampionsTX your athlete will wait in the parent watch area, kids waiting for area, or designated athlete warm-up area until they are called out onto the gym floor for practice by a coach. Athletes should not be on gym mats or equipment except when it is their class time and a coach is accompanying them. After your child’s class is over we ask that you come into the ChampionsTX gym for pick up to ensure that an adult is present and children are safely picked up. Please pick up your student on time. A 10-minute grace period is permitted for occasional and unforeseen circumstances, but for parents who make picking up their child late a recurring issue (2+ times), on the third late pick up a late fee will be assessed at a rate of $1.00 per minute for the amount of time exceeding the grace period. We appreciate your regular and timely attendance. Instruct your student to wait at the cubbies. 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. Please pick up your child/children upstairs. Thank you for your help with this.
BATHROOM/LOBBY: Per WAYA policy, children under 8 years old can not be in the lobby area without a guardian. Please bring a water bottle for your child. We have a water fountain located in the lobby. For your convenience, we also sell water bottles in our Pro- Shop and there are vending machines located in the gym downstairs.
BEHAVIOR POLICY: Champions works towards providing the best experience for all of our students. With that in mind, it is important that our athletes meet certain behavioral expectations to promote the safety and well-being of their peers. The program directors will give a verbal warning to any child who does not meet these expectations. If the behavior persists directors reserve the right to deny or discontinue enrollment of any child who does not meet these expectations.
LOST AND FOUND: ChampionsTX is not responsible for items left, lost or stolen at the gym. We cannot guarantee the security of personal items left in cubbies during classes and we do not guarantee that items lost will be found. Champions maintain a lost and found bin, and due to space constraints, we cannot keep items in the office. Occasionally we will clear out the Lost and Found by donating the unclaimed items to charity (at the end of the month). Be sure all personal items are marked, first and last name please. as we will contact you if we find a lost item. This helps us find you quickly.
FOOD POLICY: Please do NOT bring any sort of nut product into the gym as a precaution for anyone in our building who has any type of nut allergy, no matter how severe. Athletes are encouraged to bring a water bottle to every practice.
WHAT TO WEAR: Girl gymnasts wear a leotard. Boys typically wear a t-shirt and athletic shorts. Tumble and cheer students typically wear a fitted tank top and athletic shorts. Cheer students need to wear cheer shoes for safety in stunting. Hair should be pulled neatly and securely away from the face so that it is out of the eyes. The following are not appropriate for the gym: jeans, belts, zippers, skirts, jewelry, gum, socks, footed tights.
CELL PHONES & MEDIA USE: We encourage parents to bring iPads, gaming devices, toys or homework for siblings to use during class so they have something to do. Please keep in mind though that some devices can be a distraction to class and team practices, so all toys or media must be used with headphones or kept on silent. Please go downstairs for long phone conversations.
SICK POLICY: Children need to be fever-free (without medication dose) for a full 24 hours before coming to class. If they miss school due to illness, they shouldn’t attend Champions. If the child is experiencing heavy symptoms (severe runny nose/rattle cough), you may also want to consider doing a makeup class. If the child has an irregular rash or lice, we ask that you schedule a makeup class instead of attending. This is a safeguard for helping us all keep each other healthy and bug-free.
