We were hoping to be able to move to the next stage of opening this half term but unfortunately as British Gymnastics has a No Contact rule in place (between gymnasts and coaches to ensure that the classes are “Covid Safe”) we will not be able to invite new gymnasts along for Tasters yet.
Our newest gymnasts often need support in activities, for instance, while walking along a beam or vaulting but the No Contact rule puts our Coaches in a difficult position as they are not allowed to physically assist gymnasts, eg. no hand holding or assisting balance.
We have discussed adding an additional coach to these classes but unfortunately this would not address the main issue which is that the coaches are not allowed to have contact with the gymnasts.
I’m sorry that we don’t have more positive news to share, but we continue to be hopeful that at some point we will be able to offer more children a Covid Safe environment to take part in gym.
Please email the club with your child’s full name (first and surname) and date of birth and whereabouts you are located and we will add you to the mailing list for updates. firstname.lastname@example.org
