We are very excited to announce that we are able to resume our group classes as of February 22nd. We will begin our Winter session at this time and run for the scheduled 8/9 weeks until the week of April 19th. We did have to adjust some of our class times due to the new guidelines and restrictions that were put in place. We did not take making these changes lightly, and tried our absolute best to keep siblings who were spread across a number of classes as close together as possible.
Two other big changes to note are:
- No spectator viewing allowed
- All parents in parent assisted programs MUST now wear masks
Please note below the changes that were made to the affected Wednesday evening and Saturday morning classes:
- Boys Rec 4:15-5:30pm
- Mighty Mites 4:30-5:20pm
- CanGym 4:30-5:30pm
- T&T 6-7:15pm
- Girls Rec 6:15-7:30pm
- Mighty Mites 9:15-10:05am
- CanGym 9:15-10:15am
- Busy Bees 9:30-10:20am
- Mighty Mites 11-11:50am
- Girls Rec 11:15am-12:30pm
- Above the Bar 11:15am-1:15p
If you are interested in the winter session, please register online. As class sizes also had to be reduced to fit the new rules, some classes are already full. You are welcome to add yourself to the waitlist and if any changes can be made we will do our best to accommodate those participants. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
We are back!
We are so excited to announce that we are open and ready for you to come JUMP, SWING & BOUNCE with us! With enhanced cleaning protocols in place and following all of the guidelines set out by AHS and the Alberta Gymnastics Federation, we are looking forward to having the kids back in our gym. Although at this time we are not cleared for birthday parties and drop in, we anticipate being able to offer those in the near future!
Trampolines are back!
Due to some great work by our provincial gymnastics association, they have secured a new insurance provider who is allowing the use of trampolines for birthday parties and drop in. We couldn’t be more ready to re-introduce the use of these in our activities when we have the okay to do so! Please check back regularly for updates!!
