Billing, Tuition, and Enrollment Policies

Tuition Payments

We offer two methods of payment:

1. Automatic Withdrawal

Customers sign up for automatic withdrawal and receive discounts as well as payment plans. For Class Programs, customers who are members of our auto withdrawal system have their tuition payments automatically withdrawn the 25th of each month (ex. On Nov. 25th, December's tuition will be drawn). Auto withdrawal customers will be automatically rolled over into the next month (see description below). For Team Programs, customers who are members of our auto withdrawal system have their discounted tuition automatically withdrawn on the 25th of each prior month. Team members must commit to auto withdrawal from September through June.

2. Cash, Check, or One Time Credit Card Charge

For cash/check customers, payment is due by the 1st of each month, example: Novembers tuition is due by November 1st. If payment is not received by the 7th of the month your balance will be charged to the credit card on file.

Please note that when registering for summer all summer tuition is due at the time of registration. Iron Rail Gymnastics Academy/Cape Ann Gymnastics will send statements to delinquent or problem accounts only. Accounts that become 30 days overdue will be considered grounds for collections action. Declined credit card charges or returned checks will be charged a $30.00 fee. Bank account information shall be current, active, and drawn on a local bank only. No out of state checking accounts will be accepted as a form of security. We honor Visa and MasterCard. Iron Rail Gymnastics Academy/Cape Ann Gymnastics requires a three (3) week written notice to the front desk of any intent to discontinue. I understand that it will not be sufficient notice to merely tell an instructor or supervisor of our intent to discontinue. All monthly tuition charges occur on the 25th of each month and other misc. charges, such as uniform, competitions, etc. occur on given fee schedule for the season. Once our credit card and checking drafts occur no refunds will be given. No exceptions.

Our fees are based on 4 week months. If a class meets for more than 4 times, you will not be charged extra for that class. However, it may be used as a make-up for a canceled class. Any collection fees involved will be passed on to the parents. A $20.00 fee will be assessed for any returned checks. The credit card/automatic withdrawal company we use is Money Movers of America through Jack Rabbit Class. Both companies offer complete security. “Payment is SSL secure, same as ATM machines.” In order to pay by credit card/automatic withdrawal you must sign up in person at the gym, over the phone, or through our website. Credit card information can not be mailed to Iron Rail. Registration and monthly fees are non-refundable (no exceptions).

​Automatic Rollover into next month

All of our Class Program customers will be automatically rolled over into the next month unless we receive written notice three weeks prior to the start of a new month. Auto withdrawal customers will be rolled over and their payment will be withdrawn on the 25th of the prior month. Class program customers paying by cash, check, or one time crdit card, payment is due by the first of the month inorder to reserve your roll over.


A space is reserved for your child until mid-June. Parents must give written notice three weeks prior to the beginning of the next month to withdraw a student from the program. Otherwise, parents will be billed for the entire month. A message left on the answering machine, or verbal notice given to an instructor will not be considered written notice. Parents must fill out a withdrawal notice and it can be placed in the payment drop off box at the gym.


No credits or refunds will be given for classes not attended, but a make-up class can be scheduled within the same month (this includes absences due to sickness, vacation, etc.) If a class is cancelled due to weather, students may schedule a makeup in another appropriate class within 2 weeks of the cancellation. Competitive team members and karate students are not eligible for make-ups.

Take a Second Class and Receive $30 Off

Any child that would like to sign up for a second class (Preschool, Recreation, and Tumbling) can do so and receive $30 off the second class. This discount is only taken when the same child signs up for two separate classes and may not be used for siblings.


Iron Rail Gymnastics Academy reserves the right to cancel a student's membership at any time.

Snow Days!

If there is any question regarding classes being canceled due to snow or bad weather, please call the gym. We will leave a message on the answering machine if classes are cancelled.
