JGA MEMBERSHIP & FAQs
To be a member of JGA, you must first create an account via the ‘parent portal’ link above. Please ensure you complete your account fully including payment information.
You can then search for the most suitable class/location for you and if we have a space in the class, you can request a free trial. If the class is currently full, you can request to be added to the waiting list. We will then approve your request and you will be sent an email to confirm your booking.
Following your child’s trial session, unless we hear otherwise, you will automatically be enrolled into the class to start the following week. The class fees for the remainder of the month will be debited to the card saved on your account along with JGA Club Membership.
Class fees are payable monthly on 1st of each month. You will be sent a statement 3-5 days beforehand to inform you of the balance on your account. Payment will be taken automatically and if this declines, an email will be sent to you to inform you of this. You must then arrange payment to be made BEFORE your child’s next session. Any families with an outstanding balance after 72 hours will be charged a £10 late fee.
JGA CLUB MEMBERSHIP
When you join JGA, you will pay JGA Club Membership at a cost of £16. This is payable annually and affiliates your child with JGA for the upcoming year. This payment is non refundable.

CANCELLING YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH JGA
If you wish to cancel classes with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call. We require 30 days notice so any monies due will be payable before we cancel your account. Your child can attend classes with us as normal during their cancellation period.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR TRIAL SESSION
We want you to be sure that our classes are suitable for your child before you commit and that’s why we offer a free trial session to all new members. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we are unable to allow parents on any of our sites.
When you arrive, your child will be taken by the coach into the gymnasium for their session. At the end of the session, your child will be given a letter that details the class fees and information regarding British Gymnastics Membership.
Your child will be automatically enrolled, and payment which is detailed in the letter, will be taken from the card on your account within the next 1-2 days. If, however you do not wish to enrol, please contact the office the following day to confirm. Please be aware that failing to contact our office the following day, will result in automatic enrolled and payment taken. Payments are non-refundable.
WHAT TO WEAR
Gymnasts can wear anything that they are comfortable in! Most of our children wear a t-shirt with shorts or leggings. We just ask that they do not wear anything too loose, or jeans, skirts etc.
We do sell a range of merchandise that you can purchase online or by contacting our office.
If your child has pierced ears, please ensure these are either removed or taped up prior to the session. Long hair also needs to be tied back please prior to arrival.
Please can your child arrive to the session in their gymnastics attire as there will not be any access to the changing areas at the moment. Hoodies/Jumpers and footwear can be taken into the gym and left around the side of the hall. Alternatively, parents can keep hold of this.
Lastly please provide your child with a named water bottle. We do not have any lost property at the moment so any left items that are unnamed will be discarded at the end of the day.
In addition to the details above, for our holiday workshops which are from 10am until 3pm, please provide your child with a mid-morning snack, water for the day and a packed lunch. We do not allow any nuts on site so please refrain from putting these in your child’s lunch box.
