Following the advice last night from Scottish Gymnastics, our intentions were to leave the club open, with the introduction of a number of measures to minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19 at the club.
However, today the First Minister of Scotland has announced that schools will be closing from the end of this week.
With this, the club has decided to follow in the same measure. All classes beyond Friday 20th of March 2020 will be cancelled indefinitely. This includes the Easter Camp.
The coaching staff are going to be organising some materials that gymnasts can use to continue training in isolation during the closure. We will post these as soon as possible.
Obviously we are in difficult times as a club, as a community and as a country. We would like to extend our thanks to all members / parents that have offered support to the club in terms of advice, additional cleaning and continued financial support.
As the club is forced to close its doors during this period, we will certainly not be charging fees. However, we do need to look after our coaching staff during this time. A number of parents have offered to continue to pay their monthly fees. If you are able to do so, then the club will be most grateful for your donation.
We will also be seeking guidance and help from Scottish Gymnastics, OSCR and the Scottish Government in efforts to ensure the club is still standing once the current Coronavirus pandemic has subsided.
Please, if you have any questions or concerns, then get in touch either via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through one of our social media channels.
