Term 3 2020
Term 3 is just around the corner and we will be back up and running most of our classes. Invoices for term three are being sent this week with payment due in 14 days, this will allow us to then juggle gymnasts and coaches to ensure we meet our coach to gymnast’s ratio, before classes start back up. Please ensure you login at our website and check personal and contact details are correct.
At alert level 2 we had hoped to return to our new normal, however the roadworks that closed Devon St after hours was another unexpected turn of events.
As a club the financial challenge has been the loss of an entire term’s fees while still having normal operating expenses. What we did to mitigate the loss, applied and received the wages subsidy for our two employees, received Sports NZ Community Resilience fund which went towards our fixed office expenses (photocopier, accounting & membership package) and PPE fund (partial refund of our expenses in setting up hand sanitiser stations, cleaning products, gloves etc). Our landlords also agreed to a half payment of lease for a short period, of which we are very grateful.
I would just like to take a moment and thank those families who have been in contact, offering support during term two. We have also had some generous families who have offered and made donations, thank you!
A another big thank you to our volunteer coaches who came into the gym at level 2 and gave the entire facility a spring clean, and a disinfectant of all equipment, you are super stars and we appreciate all your help.
The club will be hosting our AGM in term 3 and we look forward to having you all show your support for the club by attending this. More details to follow.
