RETURNING BACK TO GYM AT LAST!!

May 3rd, 2021

All classes will resume this week at the Academy from Tuesday 4th May 2021.  It has been a long time out of gymnastics (4 months 2 weeks and 1 day).  The gym has been prepared/cleaned ready for lessons.  Members are asked to bring a small plastic box for their personal belongings to be placed into during the lesson.  They will take their plastic box home after each session.

COVID SUPPORT STAFF are always needed at the Academy.  Please let us know if you are able to volunteer one evening a week to support us in this role.

We will be checking the children’ temperature on entry into the gym and recording their details on a track trace register.  The Gym lesson tomorrow will start at 5pm and finish promptly at 7pm.  We look forward to seeing you at your different classes this week.  Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday (even though it’s raining)!

GREAT NEWS! RETURNING BACK TO LESSONS AT THE GYMNASTIC ACADEMY

April 23rd, 2021

Please see below a message from Welsh Gymnastics today:

We are delighted to confirm that the Welsh Government have issued a press release, and that due to the improving coronavirus situation in Wales, dates for the return of sport have been brought forward.

Welsh Gymnastics await the published detailed guidance from Welsh Government which will influence updates on our return to gymnastics guidance. As we understand at the moment, Welsh Government have confirmed:

  • Up to 6 adults from 6 households will be able to meet outdoors from Saturday 24 April.
  • Organised activity for up to 30 adults will begin, as planned, on Monday 26 April.
  • Indoor group activity for under 18s can restart on the 3 May, and are not limited on numbers but should still respect physical distancing requirements and the wider guidance on gathering indoors. Please utilise the UK Active Formula as per previous guidance (1:100sqft). Please adhere to the BG/WG Coaching Ratios.
  • Indoor Group activity for up to 15 adults can restart from the 3 May, the same day as the reopening of indoor sporting facilities. The restart of group activity had previously been planned for the 17 May and has been pulled forward a fortnight.
  • Should the situation remain positive, Wales could move to Alert Level 2 on the 17 May – allowing pubs, restaurants, cafes, cinemas and museums to reopen. This is outlined in the updated Coronavirus Control Plan. This step may also increase the limits on gatherings outdoors to 50 adults, and indoors to 30 adults.

The Welsh Government has been able to bring forward dates and move quicker than anticipated due to the rapidly improving coronavirus situation in Wales, and these development are excellent news for our community.

This means that our Academy will restart gymnastic lessons from Monday 3rs May 2021.  We will be emailing all our members who have registered with us since last September.  If you do not receive an email within the next 2 days please email us for the lesson timetable.

We look forward to seeing all our members back at the gym enjoying gymnastics.

 

 

WE ARE FUND RAISING !

April 18th, 2021

All our members should have received a template fund raising form.  Small groups of our members have made fantastic progress with their fund raising effort to help save our Academy.  A group of gymnasts with their parents climbed up Pen Y Fan today as a sponsored event to help raise much needed funds.  Another group of gymnasts will be climbing Pen Y Fan next Saturday.  Thank you to everyone who is helping to raise funds and who have already for our Academy.  Another member is walking 100,000 steps in one week and another is walking half a marathon this week. Thank you all so much!  We will post their photos on our web page soon.

We urge all our members to ‘get on board’ and try to raise whatever funds they can by using the fund raising template to support the Academy through this very challenging time.

The gym is due to re-open on Monday 17th May with restrictions in place.  We will be more clear about training sessions for all the members next week.

Keep checking this latest news page!

UPDATE FROM WELSH GYMNASTICS 9TH APRIL 2021

April 9th, 2021

The Welsh Government have issued a written statement, and there was coverage in yesterday evening’s press that due to the improving coronavirus situation in Wales, dates for the return of sport have been brought forward.
As we understand:

  • Outdoor Group activity for up to 30 adults can restart from the 26 April, where it had previously been the 3 May.
  • Indoor sporting facilities, including gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools will be able to reopen on the 3 May for individual activity or one-to-one training , previously the 10th May.
  • Gatherings of up to 15 indoors for exercise classes etc will return on the 17th May, as previously planned.

We will seek clarity on the guidelines for May 3rd and the possibilities within the gymnastics environment. As soon as we have more detail we will let you know.

Further information is available in a written statement on the Welsh Government website : https://gov.wales/covid-19-restriction-relaxations-wales-brought-forward

The statement is available in Welsh here : https://llyw.cymru/llacio-cyfyngiadau-covid-19-yng-nghymru-yn-gynt?_ga=2.224386706.887672526.1617916252-1247451635.1607529756

 

UPDATE FRIDAY 2nd APRIL 2021

April 2nd, 2021

A message to all our members.  As you are now probably aware, we are unlikely to return to indoor exercise classes until Monday 17th May 2021.  This means that our lockdown will have been exactly five months.  We know that Welsh Gymnastics are petitioning to the Welsh Government to try and resume gymnastic classes earlier.  We will have to wait for the outcome.

Until we allowed to return, we will continue to offer on line zoom sessions (which have been running every weekday during the lockdown) and since the relaxation of the lockdown restrictions we are offering outdoor sessions.  You should have received the information by email about all zoom and outdoor sessions.

We will be writing to all our members very soon about returning to gymnastics in May.

EASTER WEEKEND

 

 

We wish all our members a very peaceful Easter weekend with your families. We hope to see you all on zoom and at the outdoor session next week.
