The anniversary fee is charged to every Athlete at Tribe and is the annual insurance and registration fee so we can keep your Athletes and our Staff safe. Once your Athlete’s anniversary date is set, you will be auto-billed on that anniversary date as long as the Athlete is still enrolled at Tribe.
Absolutely! If you’re brand new to Tribe, your Athlete may do one free trial class prior to registering. You MUST email the office to sign up for a trial class as we keep a strict Athlete to Coach ratio. You will need to complete a Parent Portal account with all family/athlete info (but no payment information) so we can officially place your Athlete in the trial class. Each Athlete must also have a RELEASE FORM on file in order to take their trial class.
Make-up classes can be scheduled one week before or after the missed class. You MUST email the office for any make-up class. Tribe will do our best to find a class that has availability that works with your schedule. Space is reserved for the make-up in available classes as we maintain our Athlete to coach ratio. If you miss a scheduled make-up class, no further make-up will be allowed.
There are six levels, 1-6, and the skills allowed at each level are specified for stunts, baskets, pyramids, tumbling, and more. Below is a description of each level’s tumbling standards (this is not a full list).
