It’s nearly the end of the month and we are thrilled that Wetherby Gymnastics Club continues to operate strongly through its home training programme. We would like to thank our members for working with us during this time and keeping the positive club spirit going.
Our gymnasts have been completing their online training with vigour and we want to thank them for their commitment to the sport and the club.
We are equally fortunate in our impassioned volunteer coaches who keep the ideas and effort running unseen, operating behind the scenes. We thank them for their enthusiasm.
We finally would like to thank the unsung heroes of the triangle, our parents. We were fortunate enough to be able to reduce our fees to the nominal amount of £5 per month during this period and are thrilled that every one of you have chosen to keep your gymnasts as members. Not only that, you support the gymnasts daily with their online conditioning and activities as well as helping them to stay in touch with us and each other.
We are proud of you all and can’t wait to see the extended family of Wetherby Gymnastics Club back together in the gym.
Thank you and stay safe.
Sadly last week, like other gymnastics clubs in the country, in order to keep our members safe and well we had to close our doors temporarily.
Fortunately, in these exceptional times we have exceptional members, who recognise the need to strictly follow the government guidelines for the benefit of all.
We may not be able to meet physically at the moment however we continue as a club. We will be posting training support in our online members section over the coming days and look forward to when we can back to business as usual.
To all of our members, the wider gymnastics community and the UK population in general, we say
Stay Well, Stay Safe, Stay Home.
The Committee at Wetherby Gymnastics Club are aware of the ever-changing situation relating to the Coronavirus but at present, the competitive gymnastics training program continues to run. The beginners class on a Tuesday has been suspended.
We are working to Government guidelines whilst increasing precautions for the safety of our gymnasts, coaches, volunteers and families.
All gymnasts and parents MUST wash their hands before entering the gym.
We would like to ask the elderly, pregnant, or at-risk people not to come to the gym at all.
If anyone has a fever and a new persistent cough they should be self-isolating and we would ask that if any member of the family is self-isolating then please do not come to the gym.
We work closely with Leeds City Council and British Gymnastics and we will continue to monitor the situation. We will make our members aware of any changes to training as they happen, via email and the website.
Tuesday the 10th September is the first beginners class of the Autumn term 2019.
I hope all the children had a great summer holiday, and practiced safely!!
For those joining us for their first session, expect an evening packed full of knowledge and fun!
If you want to be part of it, it’s not too late!
Just get in touch using the contacts page.
