General Overview + Board Updates:
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We hope everyone had a safe and healthy holiday season. It is difficult to break with traditions and not spend time with loved ones, however, creating new memories and having gratitude is what it is all about. As everyone is aware, the Province of Ontario is on lockdown and has cancelled all in person training until at least the week of January 25, 2021. For competitive athletes, Zoom classes will commence in early January 2021. You will receive an email from your coach detailing times and zoom links.
Thanks to the generosity of our athletes and their families, we were able to donate $495 in gift cards to Gillian’s Place as well as some special baskets from Isabel & her family. It unites our gym family to grow stronger together as we support those in our community who need a little extra help, particularly at this time of year.
