Attached are the Minutes from the 2019 AGM Meeting.
We are now into October!
Hope everyone had a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving !
Everyone has settled in very well and we are now moving full swing into our clu...b activities.
Coming up this month:
October 17 and 19:
The Great BC Shake Out! Drop! Cover! Hold! http://www.shakeoutbc.ca/whoisparticipating/
We are registered to participate in this emergency preparedness event. You will see us on the list of non-profit participants. We will be doing a club-wide Earthquake Drill for all groups with the exception of the Active Start group. This will give both coaches and gymnasts a chance to practise what will happen in the event of an earthquake while we are in the gym. We will use this exercise to fine-tune our emergency preparedness plans.
No workout on Tuesday October 31 - We took Halloween evening off our schedule for all training groups. Enjoy and be safe!
October 24 (Tues) and 26 (Thurs):
Halloween at Wings will take place during regular work-out on both days. We are suggesting that our gymnasts leave their costumes for the actual day if they cannot comfortably workout in them. We would like to see more face-painting or wacky hair-dos! Parent Viewing evening will also be happening so feel free to bring your cameras. We do remind you that your Gymnastics BC form that you received and agreed to upon registration permits us to take and use photos to promote our club activities. We do not use full names to identify anyone.
If you are taking photos, please be mindful that you are taking photos in a public setting. We have NEVER had an issue about this before and we trust and anticipate none in the future.
Interclub and Competitive Meet Registrations
We will be going live SOON with meet registrations. Same login same account!
Look at the dates and meets your gymnast will be able or eligible to attend that have been provided to you by our Competitive Corodinator. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to your coach. We will follow up on more information in the weeks to come as we hope to complete all meet registrations and receive all meet fees by December 15.
A few house-keeping items:
here are some answers to frequently asked questions.
Thank you parents for coming in to update your accounts as needed. We just have a few outstanding accounts then we are all good! if you need to update your credit card information and cannot do it through your own login to your account, come and see me.
If you need to speak to your child's coach , please do so after the work-out if possible. It is very important that you do speak to your coach if you have any concerns - email us ahead of time so that we can make the time and sometimes small concerns can be resolved before escalating. We want to address things in a timely fashion. We have a zero tolerance on undesirable behaviour and thank and appreciate parents for supporting our coaches when a situation should arise or assistance in being proactive in averting negative incidents. Fortunately, we experience very few issues of this nature - let's keep it that way!
Very important - please respect the closed door as it is closed for safety reasons and because we are in a community centre. Staff/Coach will open and close the door as needed. If the door is shut, please do not help yourself in unless you are there for a specific approved reason.
Parent Viewing nights are on the last Tues or Thurs of the month. At this time, we know that parents will be in and out so we will monitor accordingly. This month, we will have parent viewing access next week for Halloween Fun.
Please remind your children if they are under 10 that they cannot leave the gym without a parent coming to the door to pick up. If you wish your child to walk home we require a signed letter/email to keep of file that you have given your permission for them to do so. Come in and pick up your gymnast(s). Good chance to say hello to your child's coach, give you a chance to share information etc.
We also have a bathroom buddy system and they need to be reminded that they must let their coach know and take a buddy as well.
Active Start gymnasts should go to the washroom before class as their class is only an hour.
Lastly - a gym bag is a MUST for shoes and jackets!
NOVEMBER will be another great month for club activities…so make sure you stay in touch with our club bulletins. Details on our club-wide FUNASTICS event in the last week of November will be coming soon...
GYM SUITS!! Hedy Pinter will come on both evenings of Funastics in the last week of November with her custom made gym suits and shorts. Hedy is kind enough to donate 10% of the sales to our club.
