Winter League Season Starts January 3! – Register HERE!

Is your daughter interested in showing off her hard-earned skills and being recognized for her efforts? Our League program is a great place to start! Competitive gymnastics teaches poise, grace, determination, and goal-setting. Registration for the winter season is open; practices begin Friday, January 3. 

League is open to all gymnasts in Class 1-4, Novice 1-2, & Advanced 3-4. Routines & skills are adjusted to fit individual skill levels. Gymnasts compete in a series of 4 meets; routines are scored by judges with awards for both individual achievement and ranked score placement.

Participation in League requires concurrent enrollment in a regular class and the League. The League fee covers all practices, competitions, and awards. Leotards and shirts are purchased as needed. League gymnasts receive priority consideration for our invite-only traveling team programs. 

For more details and to register, please visit the League webpage HERE.

Handbook Highlights

Help our staff provide you with great customer service by being aware of the policies in our customer handbook. You can find the handbook online or pick one up at the front desk. Please review our winter-related policies below.  

Winter Weather Policy

It's time for snow and cold in Wisconsin. Any closing will be listed on WISN 12, on the Altius website, and our Facebook page. During inclement weather, please check our website to see if we are open instead of calling the gym. 

Generally, we try to keep Altius open as much as possible. Since most of our classes are in the afternoon or evening, we don't necessarily follow school district closings, as the roads may be clear by the afternoon depending on the timing of the storm. We also don't have a need to factor children walking/waiting outside and busing logistics into our decision. We DO consider driving conditions for both our customers and our staff.

If Altius stays open and you feel uncomfortable traveling to a class in the weather conditions, you are welcome to schedule a makeup or request an open gym pass good for KinderTime, Family, or Grade School Open Gyms via the front desk.

In the case of Altius closing due to extreme weather conditions, we email open gym passes to recreational students who miss class. Per our customer handbook, Altius does not offer refunds, credits, or make-ups for extreme weather cancellations. In the rare case that we cancel on the same day TWICE in one season, we will issue account credits to the affected customers. 

Winter Clothing

Children are welcome to wear sweatshirts, pants, & socks during the warm-up portion of the class. Any clothing must be discarded before classes start their events. As always, please make sure hair is pulled back in a tight ponytail or braid.

Illness Policy

Please help our students (and coaches) stay healthy by keeping sick children home from class. Children who come to class with a severe runny nose or persistent cough will be sent to the office to call home. We are happy to schedule a makeup for your child when they are feeling better! 


Altius classes are divided by both age and skill level. When your child reaches the appropriate age and demonstrates skill proficiency, a promotion letter is sent home in the mail. If you are unable to switch classes, our coaches will challenge your child with more difficult skills in his/her current class.
