2020 Annual Spectacular
This annual two day event will be on Friday 6th March and Saturday 7th March to mark the 18th anniversary of the opening of the gym. Tickets are on sale AND ARE 90% SOLD, NOW ON GENERAL SALE. Rehearsals are going well and numbers are limited to each night, so don’t miss out. The theme is The Olympic Games, marking the 2020 Olympics this year in Tokyo.
This is a constant moan as numerous payments for February have not yet been made. The club still has coaches’ payments to be made and bills to be paid. You are holding these up!
The club weathered the storm Ciara last weekend, with wind tearing off the main sign and the gym almost being flooded. Many thanks to the parents and coaches who were instrumental in stopping a potential disaster.
British Gymnastics Award Scheme
At the end of 2019 we introduced the BG award scheme to General Classes. This has proved to be a huge success with all passing their first award and receiving the new badges and certificates. Next award scheme will be week 7 of the first course in 2020.
2019-2020 British Gymnastic Membership and Insurance
The British Gymnastics Web site is up and running. All must now be registered and paid direct to BG. Without this, your child is not insured for the sport and therefore should not be taking part in any activity within the club.
Due to popular demand, the club has re-instated birthday parties for all to be booked for Saturday evening and during the day on Sunday, see the posters or web site for details. Bookings now being taken.
The club has updated its fundraising sites, see the web site for Give as you Live pages. The book sale at Tesco, raised £600 towards new kit, thank you to TESCO and all who donated books. The sponsored bounce so far has brought in over £600 , please continue to bring in your sponsor donations, as the club has already bought a new bed for the trampoline.
A reminder for club gymnasts and parents to make sure your child has the correct kit including (4 piece squads) handguards, gloves, loops, water etc…
Course forms are going out this week, please be aware of the price increase and the early bird payment options.
