General

Tuition is always due on the 1st of the month. Tuition can be paid online through the parent portal on our website or in person at the front desk using a credit/debit card or personal check. You can also choose to set up automatic payments online using a debit/credit card that will process on the 2nd of every month.

Payments received after the 5th of the month will incur a $10 late fee. 

Students should wear comfortable athletic clothing. A leotard is not required for class, but we do have a retail shop with leotards available. Long hair should be pulled back away from the face and secured tightly. All jewelry (other than stud earrings) must be removed prior to participation. Students can participate either barefoot or with socks.

Please check our website and social media accounts for updates on a class status that day. We try our best to post any canceled classes by 2:00 PM on possible bad weather days. You will also receive an email notification if classes are canceled for the evening due to weather. We try to accommodate make-up classes for any closings due to weather.

Gymnastic Classes

For students in our Parent/Child, Tots Independent and Younger Kids classes, moving up levels is age-based. For students in the Girls Recreational program, our instructors evaluate skills on a bi-monthly basis. Once a student masters the skills at their current level, they will receive a certificate inviting them to move up to the next level.

We are a month-to-month enrollment gym. You can enroll your child at any time, and tuition will be pro-rated for the classes your child attends in that first month. Once you are enrolled in classes, we assume continuous enrollment unless we receive written notification by the 15th of the month that you do not wish to continue onto the next month

Yes. When your child misses a class, you have the choice to either pick up two free open gym passes at the front desk for each missed class or schedule a make-up class on a different day and time. Availability is limited, and therefore we cannot guarantee that you will be able to find a make-up class time. If you do choose to complete a make-up class, it must be completed within 30 days of the missed class.

Yes! We do offer a trial class to make sure the class and our gym is the right fit for you. To schedule a trial class, contact the gym to find out which class best fits the age and ability of your child. We will work with you to find class availability that fits your schedule. The cost of a trial class is 50% of the price of one day of class.

Open Gym

Open Gym is $8 for all participants ages 4 and under and $10 for ages 5 and up. Parent/guardians are free.

Yes, due to current COVID-19 policies we do require that you pre-register for open gym. This is to ensure we do not go over our max capacity at this time, which is 30 students for open gym.

No. Our insurance does not cover any participants over the age of 19, so adults cannot participate in open gym. Only children 18 and under can use the equipment in our open gym spaces.
Yes. Children are welcome to attend open gym with babysitters, as long as they have a participation waiver signed by a parent/legal guardian on file. You can download and print a copy of the waiver on our website. We do ask that supervising babysitters be at least 16 years old.

Events

Any children ages 18 and under who are using the facility during the party time will be counted towards the total guest count for your party. You are welcome to have as many guests as you’d like in the party room. You will not be charged for any guests not using the gymnastics equipment.
Please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start time of your reservation because there may be another party or event using the room. We kindly ask that you end your party promptly so that we can begin setting up for the next event. We are happy to help you carry any presents or leftovers to your vehicle.
Yes. Our party room is decorated in festive, gender-neutral decorations at all times, but you are welcome to bring your own decorations as well. We just ask that you do not make changes to our current decorations and that you promptly remove yours at the end of the party.
We’re so glad you are considering us for a memorable event for your child or group. When deciding whether you should book with us, you should also be aware that we do not allow any alcoholic beverages or piñatas in our gym and party spaces. Other than that, you are more than welcome to bring in any food or drink you’d like. Please also let us know any other special requests, and we will do our best to accommodate them if possible.

Competitive Team

Team Gymnastics at Lake City Twisters consists of two tracts, Junior Olympic and Xcel. These teams provide opportunities for gymnasts to compete at competitions around the state of Wisconsin against gymnasts of similar age and talent level.

Junior Olympic consists of 3 compulsory levels (3-5) and 3 Optional levels (7-10). In compulsory gymnastics, gymnasts perform the same skills and routines on each event as the other gymnasts in their level. In Optional gymnastics, gymnasts are able to choose and create unique routines using comparable skills to other gymnasts in their level.

Xcel Team provides a competitive experience for young gymnasts who also want to pursue other interests. It requires less of a time commitment than other competitive programs. Xcel consists of four levels; Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

Compulsory teams practice 3-4 days a week for approximately 2-3 hour per practice. Optional gymnasts practice 5-6 days a week for approximately 4 hours per practice. Xcel gymnasts practice 2-3 days a week for 2 hours per practice.
A commitment to a team at Lake City Twisters is a year-round commitment. Teams practice year-round and typically take a weeklong break during Winter Break, Spring Break and the week of 4th of July. Our team members are required to attend practice regularly and compete in the number of meets required by their program’s Head Coach. Team members are required to purchase the competition leotard and team warm up to match their teammates.
The Compulsory Team competes in the fall with competitions starting in September and culminating with the state meet in December. The Optional Team competitions starts in December with their state meet in March. Optional gymnasts may also qualify for Regional and National Championships which take place in April and May. The Xcel Team competition season begins in January with their state meet in March. Xcel gymnasts may also qualify to a Reginal Championship which occurs in April.
Coaches are consistently evaluating out students. The Head Coach of each team will provide a written invitation to those students invited to a team program.
There are many factors that go into a team invite. Current skills (both if they have certain skills, but also HOW they perform those skills), age, willingness to learn (coachability), behavior (listening, focus and attention in current class), attendance and more go into our evaluation to invite a student to a certain team.
If you or your child are interested in team, please email our team email address at lakecitytwistersteam@gmail.com. Our team directors will get in touch with you to talk about next steps.
