Above the Bar Gymnastics Academy
The cost is $10 for current Above the Bar students, $15 for non- students.
NO checks are accepted as payment for Open Gym.
Open Gym is for ages 6-17.
Open gym time allows students the time and space to practice their skills or to just have fun in the gym. Although instructors will be present to ensure safety rules are followed, there will be no formal instruction, nor will they offer coaching advice or spot students.
Open Gym may also be used as a make-up for missed classes, and must be scheduled as such with the front desk prior to coming to the Open Gym.
