Reopening 8th March

7 Mar

Welcome back to Gym Zone and Gym Kids

We hope that is the last lockdown we all need to face! Our team is looking forward to seeing you all back at the Gym from this Monday 8th March. We will be working through the credits for last week over the next few days please do not ask for your credit to be applied at reception. We apply these class by class and it makes the process alot more difficult if we need to do it individually. You patience and understanding would be greatly appreciated.

 

It is also very important to explain that we are restarting in level 2, this does mean that our coaching team is restricted in the amount of hands on spotting they can do as they are required to try to maintain social distancing. Spotting is when a coach physically assists a child with a skill. We will always step in to prevent a potential injury. But this being said, we won't be asking children to perform skills that we are not confident they have already mastered. It is better for the children to focus on core skills and conditioning this week. This policy is in line with Sport NZ and Gymnastics NZ guidelines.

 

This term we have been implementing a new class programme. We have noticed that many children have a few skills very well established but are missing some of the basics in other areas. The programme sets out each week what the class will work on, so that we can make sure every element is covered properly. This does mean that we have needed to cover some of the basics again to be able to create a proper foundation. Regardless this will be beneficial for students, please remember a top gymnast will still practice their handstand and other core skills everyday. If you have an queries, please give us a call or send an email and we will be happy to clarify.
