Easter Newsletter and Online Classes

Dear Parents/Carers/Gymnasts,

I wanted to wish you all a very happy (if unusual) Easter from all the coaching team and everyone at MK Springers. Please know the coaches are very much missing all their gymnasts and are finding it very strange not spending time in the gym and seeing their gymnasts.

Speaking of the gym our fantastic cleaner Emma is going in and deep cleaning the whole of the gym in preparation for when we can open again. Emma is local and is able to walk to the gym so she is not making any unnecessary car journeys!

We hope after Easter to have some exercise, conditioning,  badge skills etc. available for your gymnasts to practice, we have not rushed into  this as we needed to make sure our governing body, British Gymnastics are happy with what we are offering. Please click on this link if  you would like us to email you the above.

Sign up for Online Gymnastics

Currently I am making sure that the content is suitable for the age and ability of each gymnast.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of our members for continuing to pay your fees; I do know some have had to cancel which is totally understandable as I would not expect any family to be put at risk for the sake of our club.  If you have had to cancel your child’s /children’s membership due to financial hardship you are still very welcome to avail of the on line gymnastics when they are offered. So again follow the link.

All MK Springers coaches & staff are currently furloughed. We hope the government portal for the 80% funding will open soon so we can cover the wages. We do still have rent and utilities to pay.  We do not qualify for the Local Authority small business grants. I have applied to Sport England for a grant and looking at other possible grants, so fingers crossed we will survive this pandemic.

Once again please stay safe & well.  I wish you and all your family a very happy & healthy Easter.

Kind regards

Felicity
