Golden Bears Youth Gymnastics requires payment of fees through our automatic charge program. Charges to your credit card will be posted during the first week of the month. Charges will continue until you have notified GOLDEN BEAR in writing (via email) that you wish to discontinue your participation in our program. Changes must be made by the first of the month to avoid being charged for the next month. To cancel, send an email to us at: gbgym@berkeley.edu.

Weekend classes are very popular and in high demand. Our calendar is based on a year-round average of 4 classes per month. If Saturday or Sunday classes fall below this average, there will be no refunds. We will arrange make-ups if space is available.
