                                                2010 ENROLMENT
Enclosed   is your 2010 enrolment pack. It should contain the following items:
      •     This information sheet
      •     Membership Details form (one per gymnast)
      •     Class recommendation slip (one per gymnast)
      •     Account with any outstanding charges

Please note that this is a preliminary timetable and that changes may be made prior to the commencement of term 1
- final confirmation of class times will be posted to you with term 1 fees and newsletter in late January.

As has been previously communicated, from January 1st, Whitehorse Gymnastic Club and Box Hill Gymnastics Club
will be merging to create a new club. Through this amalgamation period, there will be a number of changes to the
way the club operates. If at any stage you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The new club will be a community club; a friendly club; a successful club. As with both the preceding clubs, the club
will remain a community based, not-for-profit organisation run by a Committee of Management comprised primarily of
parents of the gymnasts. We aim to continue with a warm and welcoming atmosphere and hope that all members of
your family can be made to feel at home and part of “the Club”. Your input will always be encouraged and welcomed.

Programs will be run from two venues – 21 Clarice Rd, Box Hill South; and Box Hill North PS, Elizabeth St, Box Hill
North. All classes will run from the Clarice Rd venue, with only a subset running from the Elizabeth St venue. If there
is the option of training at the Elizabeth St venue for you, please consider which venue is most convenient and
remember to mark it on your reenrolment slips.

Gymnasts have been assessed by coaches and placed into an appropriate class. In 2010, some programs have
changed significantly, and some have been added. To understand the expectations and aims of the program into
which your child(ren) have been placed, please read the brief descriptions on the back of this letter. More detailed
explanations of the programs in which you enrol will be made available to you at the beginning of the year.

The 2010 fee structure has been decided upon, and a sample is below. There is also a 5% family discount for families
with multiple children enrolled at the club.

All reenrolments are due by January 11th, and after this date no places can be guaranteed. You need to return by
post or email, the Membership Details form, and the Enrolment sections of the attached recommendation slips.

If your child(ren) will not be returning next year, please let us know by either returning the slip appropriately marked,
or by emailing the club. Similarly, if you cannot attend at the recommended time, or would like to enquire about the
possibility of transferring to an alternative program (eg. from Gymstar to Gymfun or Gymfun to Rhythmic), or
enrolling in an additional program, please contact us for more information.

For an immediate response to enrolment enquiries, you can telephone 9890 2588 between 4.00 and 6.00 on
January 4th, 6th and 8th, as well as between 11.00 and 2.00 on January 5th. Telephoning at other times and leaving a
message, or sending the club an email will also yield a response within 1-3 days throughout January.
