Check the enrichment ordering system used by Monarch River Academy and Yosemite Valley Charter to view the list of classes that we are offering. Order you Enrichment Certificate for the class of your choice, then bring a hardcopy of the Enrichment Certificate to Break the Barriers. When ordering your Enrichment Certificate, please refer to the class fees listed under Session Fees. If you are still unsure of the amount you need to request, please contact us at (559) 432-6292. Students who are new to Break the Barriers must have a parent fill out the Child Liability Waiver, available online or at Break the Barriers office. Once we have the Child Liability Waiver and Enrichment Certificate, we will be able to move forward with registering your child(ren) for available classes.

*PLEASE NOTE: Ordering an Enrichment Certificate does not automatically register your child(ren) for services. Please go to Break the Barriers directly to schedule/register for the desired service.

Doctor’s Releases

Sometimes a doctor’s release is required to participate if a student has specific physical or medical conditions such as (but not limited to) heart conditions, epilepsy, or bone and joint issues.  Please contact us if you have questions about specific medical conditions. 

  • Absolutely NO tummies showing (we suggest wearing a leotard or biketard underneath shorts and shirts)
  • No low-cut shirts (front or back)
  • No spaghetti straps (tank­-style shirts must have a minimum 1inch shoulder strap)
  • All shorts must have at least a 6 inch inseam (no high cut bottoms or short shorts)
  • No gum
  • Sweatpants okay during winter months
  • Must be barefoot or wearing a gymnastics shoe
  • Long hair must be tied back

Students are grouped by age and gymnastics experience, not ability level. Those who quickly master their skills progress to the next level; whereas students who need more time or adaptive equipment, receive the necessary attention required to master their skills.
