The New Season kicked off in mid-September for both the Competitive Athletes and Recreational Programs. We are so happy to see smiling faces stretching and building strength in a safe environment.
Big shout out to all coaches and the after-hours clean team for the coordination of sanitization and cleaning during day and evening sessions as well as the nightly deep clean to ensure we meet all health and safety recommendations.
Parents & Caregivers can take comfort knowing we are in touch with Gymnastics Ontario and Public Health on a regular basis to ensure our protocol is up to the highest possible standards for our facility. As the Provincial and local bylaws change we will continue to monitor and adapt as well. Please check our social channels and the website for up to date information.
Class numbers remain small and we will continue to ensure social distancing is happening during training.
From the Board of Directors
The new board has quickly found its rhythm and are working towards sustaining our gym during this difficult time. The Board holds monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of every month at the gym. Members are welcome to attend Board meetings via zoom link. If they have a specific issue to bring to the Board’s attention please email intention to attend and outline discussion points. The Chair will confirm the agenda for the month and/or direct them to an alternative arrangement. The board email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Minutes from all board meetings will be placed on the website once approved at the following board meeting. For example, September’s minutes will be approved at the October board meeting and then can be found on gymnastics.energy.
Good Grant News to Share
Gymnastics Energy is proud to be the recipient of the COVID-19 Emergency Support for Organizations program through the Canadian Red Cross. The grant received was in the amount of $33k and is meant to cover the cost of our PPE supplies, training, equipment and extra cleaning costs. Approximately 50% of this grant will be used to reimburse the gym for costs already spent. The balance will be used to cover cleaning costs and supplies until November 30 th 2020 as well as to purchase equipment that may help us reduce costs to third party cleaners moving forward.
Thank you to our new grant committee headed up by Stacey Tallman. If you find any suitable grant opportunities please forward to: email@example.com
