COVID-19 Update – June 22, 2020

Update as of June 20, 2020

We received EXCITING news today from Gymnastics Ontario that Summer Camp can begin the week of July 6th following Ontario Public Health and Gymnastics Ontario guidelines.

The duration of the program will only be offered Monday-Friday (no 1/2 days or 1-2 days per week like we have offered in past summers)

Thanks for your patience! We can’t wait to get started!

 


 

Update as of May 15, 2020

Dear Families,

We hope this update finds you well and that each and everyone of you are healthy and keeping active.  We are still missing our gymnasts very much.

Firstly, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your outpouring of support this past month.  We put a call out asking for your help to keep the club operational while we can’t be together, and you answered in overwhelming numbers.  Thank you for your unwavering support.

Secondly, you may have read today that the Provincial Government is allowing individual, competitive sports to return where ‘Return to Play’ protocols from Provincial Sport Organizations are in place.  For us, this organization is Gymnastics Ontario. We have received the list of protocols from GO and it is a lengthy list. We are very excited about the prospect of reopening our doors to competitive training, however at this point there are still many hurdles in the ‘Return to Play’ protocol that we must have in place before we resume training.

Coaching ratios, pick-up and drop-off, washroom/changeroom, cleaning and safety protocols all need to be put in place to meet the conditions of the ‘Return to Play’. We are working hard with GO to ensure we are doing everything we can to be able to open once we are ready.

Recreational parents, this also means that the gym will remain closed for all non-competitive programming.  For those wondering about summer camp, the Provincial Government has yet to address this.  We will communicate summer plans as soon as we can.

We want you to know that we want nothing more than to be back in the gym, but we also want to ensure we are doing so with the utmost focus on the safety of our athletes and staff.  Please be patient a little while longer.

Thank you for continuing to support us and for your understanding as we once again navigate new waters.

If you have specific questions, please contact Emily at the gym.

Sincerely,

Ashley Lawrence, BGA President
Emily Dancy, Club Director
