Changes and Events or Situations out of our control

Class times and or day may change during a gymnast’s time at Mayfield GC. This is so that we can cater for class demand and to allow children to be in the most appropriate class for their ability and needs.
Members will move into different classes at different times and or days from the class that they originally join. We will of course do our best to work with you to find classes that suit your family needs, but the gymnast’s developmental needs will come first. We will give reasonable notice of all changes to the class timetables, days and times.
If circumstances that are out of our control force us to cancel a regular published class, we may attempt to offer an alternative class day, time or date to substitute this
