Thousands of private gymnastics schools are operated throughout the United States, and the vast majority host happy parents and well-taught athletes. Unfortunately, some parents and/or their children are not satisfied with gymnastics school where they are enrolled.

Each gymnastics school is a private business and the authority of USA Gymnastics does not extend to matters of private enterprise and/or how the school is managed or operated. This includes matters related to fees, competition, hours of business, or anything related to team placement.
