Information for Parents and FAQ's
How do I register?
Registration must be done in person or by mail. To register your child in person, stop by the front desk during our student registration period. To register by mail, please include completed registration forms and payment, and mail to : PO Box 60010, Harrisburg, PA, 17106-0010. Classes will not be held without full payment. Space is limited and classes fill quickly! We strongly recommend that you register early in order to secure a spot in your desired class day and time. Once Fall classes are full, wait lists are started for those classes and continue through the Spring Session If you are on a wait list, you will be called when opening are available. You may register during any session (provided there is a class opening), as our program is based on a continuous learning system with no starting or ending point. If you register once a session has begun, your tuition will be prorated accordingly.
Once enrolled, will I automatically be registered for the next session?
Submitting your payment for the next session will guarantee your child's continued participation in his/her current class day and time. Please check our calendar for the session payment dates, and check the gym for posted reminders. If payment is not received by the posted due date, your child's spot in the class may be forfeited, as we often have waiting lists for many of our classes.
What do I need to register my child?
• Download and complete our registration forms from the website and bring them along to the front desk to register. The registration form is due at the time of registration. The Physician's Approval Form is due by the child's first class. Registration forms and payment can also be mailed to: PO Box 60010, Harrisburg, PA 17106-0100.

A family discount of 10% is given for 2 or more gymnastics classes per week, for the same or different child. CPAG members also receive a 10% discount on pro shop merchandise.
Do you offer makeup classes?
Make-ups are available for a missed class. You may schedule a make-up by calling or stopping by the front desk. We allow two make-ups per session. There are no make-ups scheduled during the first week of classes in every session. We advise you to schedule the make-up as soon as an absence occurs to ensure class availability. Waiting until the last few weeks of the session will not guarantee the ability to schedule a make-up. If you schedule a make-up class and are unable to attend, please call in advance to cancel. If you do not cancel the class, it will count as your make-up. Classes not made up within the session will be forfeited and cannot be transferred to the next session. Due to the availability of make-up classes, there are no deductions or refunds for missed classes.
What is CPAG's refund policy?
Refunds will only be given if the office is notified in writing before the third class of the session. All refunds are subject to a $10 processing fee. The refund amount will be for the remaining classes in the current session. After the third class of the session, no refunds will be granted, except for medical reasons. The family registration fee will not be refunded for any reason.
What should my child wear to class?
Girls must wear a one-piece leotard or unitard, but please no skirt as it makes spotting difficult for our instructors. Appropriate undergarments must be worn under the leotard. Girls must have their hair pulled back away from their face and secured. If earrings are worn, they should be post only. No other jewelry is allowed. Boys should wear athletic pants (long or short) and a t-shirt tucked into pants. Clothing should not be oversized. To ensure safe footing on our equipment, all gymnasts will have bare feet. Parents: please make sure your child wears clothing that is appropriate for performing gymnastics skills.
What do I do on my child's first day of class?
Please turn in any outstanding forms at the front desk. If you have already submitted all of your forms, there is no need to check in at the front desk on the first day. If your child is attending class in the Main Gym (grade 1 and up), place all clothing (including shoes, socks, and outerwear) in a cubby in the front lobby area. Parents, please ensure that your student has used the bathroom before class begins. During the 1st week of the fall session, students may wait in the front lobby area until an instructor comes to the lobby and calls their class. Our staff will then tell students where they should line up for class for the remainder of the year. Mini Gym students can proceed down the hallway (on the right side of the gym) to the Mini Gym waiting room in the back of our facility. Please place all clothing (including shoes, socks, and outerwear) in a cubby and wait in the waiting room. During the first day of the fall session, our Mini Gym staff will come and greet our students in the waiting room. After the first class, students should undress, use the bathroom, and line up by the green pole in our Mini Gym lobby.
Do I need to stay at CPAG while my student is taking class?
• Main Gym (grade 1 and up) - Parents do not need to stay while your student is in class. However, our front lobby area is always availble for you to wait for, and observe your student's class. At the end of class, students MUST wait inside until a parent arrives....no students are permitted to wait outside the building for a ride.
•Mini Gym - Parents of our Tumble Bugs, Tumble Bees, and Tumble Bears do not need to stay during their child's class. If you are leaving the gym, please ensure that our staff has a way to contact you in the event of an emergency. Your child must be able to use the bathroom independently, as our Mini Gym instructors are not permitted to take students to the bathroom at any time during class. Our Tumble Bunnies parents are required to stay during their class time. If you must step out of the gym for any reason, please designate another parent to assist your child should they need to use the bathroom during class.
