We are delighted to be able to start our return to gymnastics. All our pre-lockdown timetables are no longer correct due to the restrictions on numbers and protocols for arriving at the gym and leaving the gym, if you have a class query please email firstname.lastname@example.org
After months of inactivity, coaches have been advised to plan a phased, fun, and inclusive return to activity by ensuring that all gymnasts’ physical and mental health is considered. This means gymnasts may have to practice certain skills more than others at this time. Due to capacity restrictions, groups may be split and gymnasts may be asked to practice in certain areas of the gym to ensure social distancing guidelines are adhered to. Sessions may also be shorter in length to allow time for extra cleaning and crossover of classes within the venue.
