Students pay an annual membership fee to participate in classes at Gymco ($45 for one student or $59 for the whole family). As a Gymco member, you’ll receive discounts on our programs, events, birthday parties, and more. Your membership fee and your first month’s tuition is due at enrollment. Tuition for most classes at Gymco is $72 per month. Discounts are available for siblings and students taking more than one class. You can join a class anytime during the month, your first month’s tuition will be prorated.
Children age 1-5 are placed in a class based on their age. Children age 6-18 are grouped in classes according to their skill level. If you’re not sure which class is right for your child, we can help you find classes that meet your child’s skills & ability. Just contact us to schedule an evaluation. As skills are mastered, your instructor will recommend a more advanced class. If you have any questions about this process, your child’s instructor would be happy to answer questions specific to your child.
Gymco classes are 55 minutes, once-a-week, all year. You can join and drop a class at any time of the year (see drop policy below). Gymco has lots of classes to choose from, and you can change your class day & time at any time. Just find another class on the Parent Portal or let us know.
A credit card is required when you sign up for classes. Tuition is charged automatically to your credit card on the 1st of each month. Tuition payments apply to the CURRENT month. If tuition is not paid by the 15th, a $15 late fee is charged. If tuition is not paid by the 3rd class of the month, the student may be dropped from the class. You can check your account balance and charge the credit card on your account on the Parent Portal.
No problem! Gymco offers unlimited make-ups. You’ll receive a credit for any class your child misses, AND you have a choice: 2 open gym passes, or you can schedule a make-up class. Open gym passes never expire, and you can use them to play at any Gymco open gym, Monday–Saturday from noon–1 pm. Bring a friend or play at open gym twice; your two passes can be used however you want. Or, you can make up the class another day. Gymco has an extensive schedule of classes Monday–Saturday. We are sure to have a class that fits your child’s age, skill level, and your schedule. You can see your absences on the Parent Portal and schedule a make-up class at the front desk, by phone at (616) 956-0586 or by email.

Gymco classes continue all year long, and your child will continue to be enrolled unless you change classes or drop from the class. You may drop from next month’s class any time before the 15th of the month. If we do not receive a withdrawal request by the 15th, your student is enrolled in the class for the next month, and tuition will be charged. (for example, if you request to drop a class on June 21st, you will be charged for July’s tuition, and the student will be dropped beginning in August). Tuition is non-refundable, and we cannot prorate tuition for drops.
