FEES

WHAT COSTS CAN I EXPECT TO PAY

Conducting a gymnastics program is an expensive venture. Training requires low gymnast to coach ratios and an enormous capital outlay for the Lawnton Academy coupled with high recurrent cost. As such, fees must reflect these obligations to ensure the program's continuation. The Lawnton Academy's fees we believe offer good value for money compared to hourly rate of many other intensive sports.

Each year parents are required to pay Term Lesson fees, Annual GQ/GA Registration Fees that include insurance and an Annual LAAG Registration fee.

L.A.A.G. FUNDRAISING

The LAAG maintains a separate fundraising account and conducts several fundraising activities throughout the year. This fundraising is targeted for anything outside of the essential requirements of the business and directly relating to the needs of the gymnasts and their families.

A large portion of the fundraising income will be directed to the needs of the competitive gymnasts who have a large commitment at the Academy and are training many hours per week and representing the Academy at State, National and International Events.

The Fundraising account also supplies ice blocks through the summer months, medals for all gymnasts at the end of the year and social events to encourage team work and a family centred environment. Volunteers are sometimes required to assist us with this integral part of the Lawnton Academy “Team Work” tradition.
