Dear parents,

Please be advised that all updates will now be put on the website.  This will be done to the earliest convenience of our coaches.  Most of our coaches are volunteers and after a long days work spend 3 hours coaching your children as well as 1-2 hours preparing programmes, routines, music, admin, letters, carnivals, bag packing, extension work etc.  Volunteers give up their valuable time to develop your child in the gym  To the best of their ability they provide information to help you to support your child.  As we are only human sometimes we make errors.  The time we spend in the gym is valuable to develop new skills and consolidate old skills in preparation for competitions and displays.  Many parents are fully supportive and appreciative of all our volunteers do.  Many volunteers coach up to 18 hours per week, alongside full time jobs and families.  Coaches develop a relationship with the gymnasts and want to commit to that time and take pride in their achievements.  However, constant criticism from other parents and lack of support make this job difficult.  We do not want our volunteers to give up as this would effect your child’s development in the gym.  Please feel free to volunteer your services to help with the administration and support us by reading, returning letters and respecting training times.  There are many parents’ who do this and as always we are grateful.
