“Teen Gym” Beginners is a new open entry level program which will run for 90min and focus on fun, fitness, and gymnastics basics. No previous experience is required. 

 All new “Teen” members will be recommended to attend a Beginner course to start so that coaches can recommend the best progression route for each gymnast.

Making a Class Enrollment Request

Please read instructions below thoroughly and then proceed to our parent portal.

 

This course is opened for booking on first-come first-serve basis. Enrollment request will be approved in the order it is received. We are currently approving requests with some delays.

All Bookings are being made through our NEW parent portal. This means you will need to create a new account if you haven’t already done so in order to request a space. We are NOT currently taking any bookings by text or email.

Please reference the instructional video and steps for enrollment listed below first.

**We are no longer using the Gnobeo system for any bookings.**

Before requesting a class enrollment online, it is important you are aware of the following.

In order to request a class enrollment online via your parent portal account, you will be required to input your debit/credit card details giving recurring billing authorization to RGC. This means that when it is time to pay your term tuition, funds will automatically be drawn from your account. If you; however, choose not to save your card details during the process of requesting a class enrollment online, your request will not be complete and it will not reach us.

You will know that your enrollment request has been successful when you have checked out of the basket, saved your card details and continued to the end until the screen confirms that “Your registration has been successful”, meaning your request for enrollment has reached us and we are reviewing it. You will also receive same confirmation via E-mail. 

While recurring term billing is our preferred method for payment of tuition, should you wish to make your payment via a different method, it is important you come and book your class in person at the club. The club will not book anyone in any class without either saved recurring billing details on account or an upfront payment.

In order to book in person, please create an account and add students to your account from home before coming to the club.  An upfront payment of TERM tuition, Annual club Membership and Gymnastics Ireland membership via cash or cheque is required.

Note, we will not process any other payments using your saved payment information without prior authorization by you. We will, however, process payments for all overdue balances you have on the account at the time of approving your class enrollment as all members must be in good standing on their account before starting to train in the new season.

Following are the steps to request a class enrollment. We have created the VIDEO demonstration to ensure you are able to request your class at ease.
