‘Keeping in touch’ Days

 

Dear Parents,

First, I would like to thank you for your supportive messages and patience during this unusual time. As you are aware due to the COVID-19 pandemic our classes had to stop abruptly, meaning there were a few weeks in the build up to the Easter holidays that had been paid for but not attended.

Due to the current government guidance on outdoor activity, we are really pleased to have been given the go ahead by British Gymnastics to start some outdoor activity with our Gymnasts. We intend to start replacing the missed sessions through a series of ‘Keeping in touch’ days. This activity must respect social distancing rules and a maximum of 6 people meeting in a cluster. Gymnasts will be contacted and invited to their session via email. Sessions are most likely to run during weekends. Within your invitation you will find a full set of guidelines that we would like you to read through carefully so that we can be sure all participants, parents and coaches are kept safe and well while we run these socially distanced outdoor activity sessions!

Though it won’t be what our Gymnasts are used to and classes will not be as regular as we would like, we hope that the ‘Keeping in touch’ days will be a welcome start in getting our Gymnasts motivated, moving and back to what they enjoy!

Kind regards,
Hannah Nicolson- Head Coach

Brand new foam vaulting table

Really pleased with our new apparatus that has finally arrived after being ordered 3 months ago! Our foam vaulting table breaks down into smaller blocks making it versatile for all of our users from beginners- development groups- freestylers! Thanks to DSYGA for their contribution towards this apparatus!

DSYGA Floor Vault and Trampet Competition

On Sunday 16th February our gymnasts travelled to Poole to take part in the DSYGA Floor, Vault and Trampet competition. It was a long day but we were delighted that the Swanage Gymnasts came away with 7 with medals for top 3 overall and multiple top 6 ribbons for individual apparatus. Every Gymnast worked extremely hard in the build up tot he competition and on the day.

BIG THANKS TO:

All coaches who assisted in the build up to the competition

 

 

 

Coach Education

Our coaches have been busy!

Congratulations to Ella who passed her Level 3 module for General Gymnastics. Also a big well done to Charlene and Tammy who attended a brand new pilot course for coaching, one of the first to be run in the country! Both coaches had 4 intensive days of classroom and practical activities including on course assessment- both passed the course!

New welfare officer

During the half term holidays Head coach Hannah and Welfare officer Kate went on an NSPCC Time to listen course. This was a really useful course that helped us keep up to date with good practice. Kate is in and around the gym on a weekly basis and looks forward to visiting all of our classes at some point in the near future. She can be contacted through the clubs welfare email address: Welfare@swanagegymnastics.co.uk.
