Issued 28th June 2019 for Autumn Term 2019

Dear Parents,

Leaving / Vacancies
Each term a number of places are lost when children leave or move without telling us. Please let us know now of any children not wishing to continue gym next term - or wanting a day change.
At the time of writing, there are vacancies in September for girls on Wednesdays or for boys & girls of pre-school age on Fridays, we invite anyone interested to put their child's name on our waiting list.
Club Champions
Each year we celebrate the gymnasts' achievements by rewarding attainment on the Award scheme. In each school age group (Year 1 and upwards) we present Club Champion and Runner-up medals to those who have passed the most agilities to the club standard. These will be presented on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th July.

Police Grant for Leotards
Sussex Police have given us a grant towards the cost of Leotards, meaning that again we can offer them at just 20 . We currently have all sizes in stock.
Second-hand leotards are available as and when they come in. Please let us know if you have any spare.

Many of our gymnasts will receive BG awards this term. On average each child earns an award each year. Parents are welcome to come ten minutes before the end of their child's last session to witness their presentation. This includes the last ten minutes of the pre-school classes on 5th July, when we will be presenting certificates to those moving up to main club.

Important - Contact Information Update
If you have changed address, phone, mobile phone number during the past year, please email us
:- andrewhinhurst@gmail.com
or write down your new details and hand them in at a club session.

If possible, can you please bring your child ready changed for gymnastics.
Clothing should either be hung up on pegs or left on the side units by the ramp, not left as a tripping hazard. There are toilets available if necessary.
Every day we are sharing the use of the Centre with other groups and need to avoid children changing in public areas.

The Club has policies on Confidentiality, Complaints, Equal Opportunities, Health & Safety and Safeguarding, available at the Club. Our Welfare Officer is Mrs Wendy Drew, who is available at the Club.

Group & Competition Photos
The Club took group photos in the first week of May and Competition photos on the competition days. These are still available at 1 per page (2 photos). Please ask if you missed them.

36th Annual Championships
Saturday 6th July 8.30am
With free admission, come and watch our gymnasts competing.
The Championships will be all morning, with an 8.30am start for both judges and gymnasts.
Gymnasts should be well turned out in Club kit, then warmed up and ready before the approximate times as given on their Competition entry letter, but also be prepared to wait. The Club Room will be available for competitors only to warm-up fifteen minutes before their performance.

Programmes 1, will be available from 2nd July.

All of the gymnasts have been given the opportunity to enter the Annual Championships and a record number have chosen to compete today. They have chosen which sections to enter, their own music and created their own routines with a choice of content. Please respect their work by not moving around during routines.
