Completed in January 2008, the Virginia International Gymnastics Schools facility is the largest built-for-gymnastics facility in the central Virginia region! It was designed from the ground up for safety, fun and the purpose of teaching students and athletes the latest gymnastics techniques! The 26,600 square foot, air-conditioned center is filled with the latest gymnastics equipment. Click on the Facility page to see more pictures of our gym.

Students may register at any time, on a space-available basis. A student who registers after the start of any given term will have their tuition pro-rated to reflect only the number of classes they will be attending.
With the exception of the first term of the year, as a courtesy, currently enrolled students receive advance registration privileges. Therefore, current students must re-register by the last class of the term or that vacancy will be filled with new students or those on waiting lists. Registration forms and consent / release waivers must be filled out completely and signed by parent or guardian before participation. Check or Money Order should be made payable to "V.I.G.S." We also accept VISA, MASTERCARD, and DISCOVER. We do not accept cash payments.
There is a $36 annual registration fee per student, beginning with Term I. This fee is pro-rated beginning Term VIII.
There is a 25% discount for families with two or more children enrolled in our program. The 25% discount is taken off the lesser of tuitions.
There is a 25% discount for a single student taking two separate classes during the same term. The 25% discount is taken off the second class only.
There is a $35 fee charged on checks returned for any reason.
Make-Ups for Missed Classes
We offer a make-up class for students who miss their regular class due to illness or pre-arranged agreement with the front office. The make-up is available only in classes that are not full. Therefore, a student must call ahead to be added to the make-up list. There is no pro-rating due to missed classes.
Parent Observation and Spectator Supervision
VIGS welcomes parents and guest observation of classes. However, in the interest of safety, the following must be strictly enforced:
Student Progress Reports
On the fourth week of every other term, students receive a progress report outlining individual areas of progress. This report will also make a recommendation as to whether the student should move to the next level of classes. The lead teacher can also promote students to the next level during any point in a term if staff feels the student is ready.
Participation Ribbons and Medalist Program
To help encourage children in their pursuit of learning gymnastics skills, participation ribbons are given out on the last week of each term. We reward children with a colorful reminder of the fun they experienced and the skills achieved during that term! The entire set from a years-worth of classes makes for a great display in your child's room and sentimental keepsake for years to come!
For those students with outstanding attendance at VIGS, we provide our Medalist Program of recognition! At the end of our last term of the year:
The medals are given out at our fun and exciting "Annual Open House" held each September!
VIGS does not offer private lessons. As a courtesy, we will take information from customers wishing to engage in private instruction. That information will be passed along to instructors who may wish to contact the customer to set a private lesson appointment. More than three students in a private lesson must be approved by management. All fees are paid directly to the private lesson instructor.
Inclement Weather Closings
VIGS does not follow city and county school closings for inclement weather. Official class cancellations will be announced on our answering machine at 804-276-7039. When possible, announcements will also be posted at vigsgymnastics.com. Make-ups for any classes cancelled by VIGS will be announced at the next regularly scheduled class.
