Membership and Fees
Upstarts Gymnastics is managed by a club and member management software system called LoveAdmin. This system allows us to communicate more effectively with our members and ensures our volunteers and coaches can put their efforts in to creating excellent gymnastics sessions for our members, as opposed to completing admin tasks.
There are three different payments that are taken as part of a membership at Upstarts Gymnastics:
Joining Fee of £13 - a one off charge to cover additional administration in setting up and closing memberships
Annual club membership fee of £10 - paid on joining the club and then annually
Monthly training fee, paid in advance of the month - Our monthly fees can be seen in the table below this text box
How we calculate your monthly fees: -
Upstarts Gymnastics Club offer training for recreational participation 43 weeks of the year. However, we only charge for 39 weeks a year, to allow for emergency closure days for unforeseen circumstances like bad weather or facility emergencies. These 39 weeks of charge are then split into 12 equal monthly payments.
This was voted upon by a committee of parents, to ensure the fee you pay is consistent throughout the year to help with your budgeting, to assist us with easy fee collection and reduce administration to a minimum.
You will notice that Mondays are further reduced to take into account the additional bank holiday days that the rest of the rest of the week will not be impacted by; again, fees spread over the 12 months.
In addition to these costs, anyone participating in gymnastics activities must be a member of our Governing Body, British Gymnastics. This includes your insurance to participate along with other membership benefits. To read more about British Gymnastics membership benefits, please see the link below:

British Gymnastics membership is currently £20 for the year (2022 price) and is renewed annually in September.
Before you leave: -
We hope you enjoy your participation at Upstarts Gymnastics Club, we aim for quality gymnastics activities with a focus on positive experience and progression. However, if for any reason you decide to leave Upstarts Gymnastics Club, our policy is a month's notice by email. We can then ensure the best outcome for everyone, wishing the gymnast a fond farewell and best wishes for their next adventure, ensuring that fee collection is stopped in a timely manner, and ensure the club can offer the place to someone on the waiting list as soon as possible, without the loss of income for our essential running costs. This policy is a condition of your place at Upstarts Gymnastics Club.
