Register your child by coming to the gym office or calling (586) 803-1333 during New Student Registration. Space is limited and classes fill quickly! In-person registration begins at 8 a.m. and telephone registration starts at 9 a.m. on the first day of New Student Registration for each session. We strongly recommend that you register in person, as soon as we open, on day #1 of the registration period for your best chance of getting the day and time you want. Returning students may register starting at 9:00 a.m. on the first day of Returning Student Registration.
Registration can be done by phone with a credit card or in person. Classes will not be held without full payment. New customers may not register before the registration dates listed at the top of the schedule.

Registration: Can be done in-person or by phone with a credit card. Classes will not be held without full payment. If you register by telephone, you will need to fill out an emergency form on or before the first day of class (new students only). The emergency form is printable from our website.
Refund Policy: New students registered for their very first session may receive a refund if the student is withdrawn within the first two weeks of the session. This only applies to students who have never taken any type of classes at Olympia. Returning students will only receive a refund if the student is withdrawn before the first day of the session. Once the session begins no refunds will be granted for returning students. There is a $10 processing fee per student for each refund given. All refunds are done by business check. Allow two weeks for refunds to be processed.
Discounts: Families with more than one student will receive a 10% discount for each additional student.
Attire: No need to stress, attire is easy at Olympia. Students may wear a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt and bare feet. Girls wear hair up in a pony. No jewelry should be worn (except post earrings). Parents please make sure your child wears clothing that is appropriate for performing gymnastics skills (soft fabrics and secure tops).
First Day of Class: If you have a returning student or registered in-person, you will not need to check in at the front desk. Returning students are invited may go into the viewing area and wait for the announcement that class is starting. If you registered a new student by phone, a completed emergency form in due on the first day of class. Emergency forms can be printed from the forms page of our website and can be turned into our office staff when you arrive. Please plan on arriving 5 minutes early on your first day.
Make-ups: Make-ups are available for a missed class. You may schedule a make-up by calling or stopping by the front desk. We allow one make-up per session. The last few weeks of the session are the hardest to schedule makeup appointments. We recommend trying to avoid waiting until those weeks to schedule your make up. Classes not made up within the session will be forfeited and cannot be transferred to the next session. We cannot schedule makeup appointments before a session begins or during the first week of classes. We begin scheduling make-up appointments after each day of the week has completed week #1 of the session (please check our session calendar for more information).
Viewing Area: Olympia is proud to offer a spacious enclosed viewing area for family and spectators. Our viewing area is equipped with wireless internet, vending machines and a television for the children. Please always be kind and considerate of those around you while spectating. Our viewing area will be crowded during busy class times and we ask that everyone be mindful of your surroundings. For safety reasons, you must always provide proper supervision of your children while in our facility. Do not allow siblings to run or behave wildly while waiting in the viewing area. Unattended children will be traded for donuts or sold to the circus. No one is allowed inside the gym area except for students. Parents of students over the age of 6 are not required to stay during class time.
Parking Lot: Our parking lot will get congested during peak class times. Please allow time to park when you arrive and always drive carefully in out lots. You are invited to utilize all the parking spots in the front, side, and rear of our building. Parking is also permitted on Danview & West Star Road. Please do not park in the driveways of our lot or in the handicapped spaces (unless you have a handicap permit). Even short-term parking is not permitted in those areas.
Cleaning: Cleanliness is a priority at Olympia! Maybe that is why we have the reputation for being one of the cleanest facilities in the area. We have cleaning & sterilization procedures that are performed several times throughout the day by members of our staff and a staff of cleaning professionals. In addition, each month our entire facility is treated by Biogreen Solutions with a ULV fogging process. This is an EPA registered disinfectant. We encourage all of our guests to clean and sanitize hands upon arrival. We have several sanitizer stations in our viewing area to make it easy to stay clean. We strongly encourage all students to clean & sanitize hands before and after class time.
Class Closings/Inclement Weather: Olympia Gymnastics will cancel morning preschool classes when the Utica Community Schools close for snow/hazardous driving conditions. A determination on evening classes & team practice is made at 2:00pm. For an update on the status of afternoon/evening classes, please check the Olympia Gymnastics Facebook page after 2:00pm. On inclement weather days, it is your responsibility to check our site before your scheduled class.
Parent and Tot Classes: During the Parent and Tot class, only one adult may accompany the student, and no additional siblings are allowed in the gym area. One adult per child is needed to participate. Parents can plan on wearing comfortable attire. Parents will remove their shoes but can choose to keep socks on.
