Sign-up for placement to ongoing courses is binding.

4. Illness/injury
In case of illness/injury, a medical attestation, certifying that the course can not be completed, is required. From the date that the illness/injury is rapported to Lidingö Gymnastikskola by e-mail, the corresponding proportion of the course fee (excluding administrative fee) are saved as part payment for the following course. Retained course fee due to illness/ injury is personal.

5. Refunds
Reimbursements are made only in cases when cancellations have been made according to Lidingö Gymnastikskola’s terms and conditions for cancellation. By presenting a medical attestation stating that the class cannot be preceded due to injury or illness, the remaining balance can be used as a valid personal credit for following class sign-ups. The registration fee for Gymnastik speed, Gymnastik fortsättning and Gymnastik avancerad is non-refundable.

6. Insurance
Your child is covered through Lidingö Gymnastikskola by Folksams Idrottsförsäkring. This provides basic coverage, but we strongly advise each family to look over their insurance plan.

7. Gear
The classes Gymnastik grundträning, Gymnastik Speed, Gymnastik fortsättning and Gymnastik avancerad we require the children to wear a leotard or a full body. We have options for both girls and boys in our web shop. For security as well as instructional reasons your child’s hair should be firmly fixed in a ponytail or tied up in other secure hairdo.

In other classes the children should preferably wear a leotard and/or tights and t-shirt or tank top. For practical reasons the clothing should not be too big or loose fitted. To enable monitoring that the exercises are preformed correctly, and for safe assistance, it is important that there is a minimum of fabrics and loose ends in motion. Long hair should be firmly tied up with rubber hair bands. We recommend to not using barrettes, which tend to slide off the hair and could injure the child.

It is most suitable for the child to be barefoot in gymnastics. If a shoe is favored, we strongly recommend a thin shoe with a rubber or gummed sole – a gymnastic shoe a k a “hoppsko” in Swedish, we do not advise a leather sole.

8. Viewers
Parents or other adult viewers are allowed to be present at class, but may also drop the child off for the class period. The goal is for the child to feel comfortable and secure to concentrate on doing gymnastics on it’s own. We suggest to experiment and get a sense of what is best for your child. This may alter over time depending on your child’s personal development.

Parents viewing class are advised to keep quite during class, cell phones must also be kept silent.

Siblings and/or friends are not allowed during class. In case siblings need to be brought along, we suggest taking the opportunity to play outside or in the changing room.

The courses Pyttegymnastik, Rytmikgymnastik and Mikrogymnastik are done together with a parent. Twins will each need a parent by their side.

9. Other matters of concern
Lidingö Gymnastikskola has the right to change time, place, and instructors if so necessary. Lidingö Gymnastikskola does not take responsibility for clothing and personal belongings.

Lidingö Gymnastikskola do not offer make up-classes. Time and location for the course is stated in the Summon, which is always sent by e-mail, and it is the responsibility of the informer to note the time stated in the summon, so that the child gets to the right group.

Please, let us know by e-mail if you child cannot attend the first session. The following sessions, there is no need to rapport absence, but if you know that your child will be absent the following session, kindly let the instructor know this on spot.

Thank you for your cooperation.
