Every week we provide opportunities for hundreds of people to stay healthy, to have fun, to meet new people and to achieve excellence.

24th March 2020

We would like to thank our members and staff for being so calm, and understanding in the current crisis.  As you know we pride ourselves on the excellence of our sporting history, and are devastated that we can no longer deliver coaching sessions.  This is, however, a necessary step to fight the spread of this disease, and we thank you for your support at this time.  We are working hard in the background to complete the many administrative tasks needed and thank you for your patience.

Huntingdon Gymnastics Club looks forward to being able to see you all again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

The latest update regarding our Performance Squad Gymnastics:

Dear Parents of Performance Gymnasts

Over the last 24 hours, we have stress tested a number of scenarios to allow some limited training for our performance gymnasts. We do not know how long this situation will continue for, however any short term gains over the coming days will be depleted during a long break in training as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

 

As a coaching team we understand the benefits of regular training for our gymnasts in terms of physical, mental and social health. However despite a number of measures being taken to decrease the risk of contracting COVID19, the safety of your families and ours, must be our highest priority. Therefore the last day of Performance Squad training will be Saturday 21st March 2020.

As our role as gymnastics coaches take a step back, I am sure there will be front rooms in many homes being transformed into gyms. Our coaches are working on a number of home training programmes which will focus on maintaining levels of physical conditioning and flexibility.

We will continue to monitor the situation and we will look to resume performance training at the earliest opportunity.

Best wishes

Adam

Dear Members of Huntingdon Gymnastics Club,

We are witnessing unprecedented times as a result of the Coronavirus. Our Recreational and Pre-school classes will cease from 9pm on Friday 20th March 2020.

 

Pre-School and Recreational Training Fees
There are two weeks left of the current pre-school term, these sessions will be credited for future sessions when they restart.
Direct debits have been frozen for April 2020, any missed Recreational gymnastics sessions up to the end of March will be made up during the Summer Holidays or at the start of the Autumn term.
If in the meantime if you decide to leave the club then you will receive a refund for missed sessions.

Performance Squads
Saturday training will run as planned.

We are currently reviewing the feasibility of a modified performance squad training programme, with a limited number of groups and coaches spread across our two gymnasiums. The health and wellbeing of our staff and gymnasts, is at the forefront of this planning. We will provide further information on Friday 20th March 2020.

The Future
We are facing an ever changing environment, we cannot foresee what the future holds. However during this period of closedown, it provides a unique opportunity to review our current sessions and plan how we can further improve them.

All of our team are passionate about coaching and delivering gymnastics to our participants both young and old, it is a privilege to be involved in a sport we love.

My best wishes to you and your families at this time of great uncertainty.

Adam

Update (17/03/20 11.03am):  Please note all scheduled gymnastics classes are going ahead as planned.  Please note, however, that the balconies are closed and gymnasts are to be dropped off at the front door for registration and collected at the back door at the end of sessions.  We apologise for any inconvenience but we are placing these measures as an attempt to control the potential for cross contamination.  Please keep an eye on email and facebook for updates.

 

 

 

Dear Parent/Carer

In light of the current Coronavirus guidance provided to us at this time, could we please ask you and your gymnasts to adhere to the following:

  •       * Please ensure your gymnasts wash their hands before and after their sessions
  •      *  All visitors and spectators please follow good hygiene guidelines as set by the NHS regarding washing of hands, and coughing/sneezing and disposing of tissues.
  •       *  If your gymnast or yourself are in self-isolation, or have been in contact with someone who has a confirmed case, please do NOT attend the club.

All Club personnel are aware of the situation and are also following guidelines set out by British Gymnastics and the NHS, and in addition are following a regime of hand cleansing before and after every session and to the highest possible standard.

We are continually monitoring the situation, and will take advice and act upon government guidelines as and when required.

At the time of writing this Email, we are still open for business as usual, and will keep you updated with any changes. Please also keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
