Dear Members

We are very excited about bringing all our members to our Forge Hill Centre. But before we can do that we have a bit of work that needs to be done. Last week saw a heating system being installed and this week it gets very exciting – our new pit is being dug !

Unfortunately to allow us to complete this work we have had to postpone the start of our term – but do not worry we will ensure we still run a full term by opening weeks we had originally planned for holidays etc.

Douglas Gymnastics Club is a non-profit community club run by a voluntary parents committee. What we are undertaking is a huge task but it will be worth it in the end! We will have one of the best and biggest gymnastics training facilities in Ireland.

In order to open this new centre & to ensure we have the best facility possible the club have already had to invest a large amount of the clubs resources. So fundraising is essential. We will be looking for all our members to support all fundraising initiatives over the next term.

We would like to thank all our members for your continued support and understanding as we complete the centre. We look forward to welcoming all our members old & new as soon as possible.

We will post photos regularly on our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/douglasgymnastics to keep you updated with the progress.

Below we have listed dates that we will start running classes. ( there will still be building being carried out to complete the far end of the gym – but we will set up the remainder of the gym to start with).

Friday 14th Feb
Saturday 15th Feb
Monday 17th Feb
Tuesday 18th Feb
Wednesday 19th Feb
Thursday 20th Feb

This is a friendly competition for all gymnasts that train in Douglas Community School on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday.This is a fantastic way for our gymnasts to show off some of the skills they have learnt during the year. Our younger gymnasts will do a skills competition. Where they will perform individual skills. Our older gymnast will put their skills into routines. The competition will be run in a friendly environment as possible with the gymnasts getting loads of help, support and encouragement from the coaches and judges.

Gymnasts will be split into groups and compete on the same mat as other gymnast of a similar age and level. Medals will be presented to 1st, 2nd & 3rd but all gymnasts will receive a certificate and some sweets for their efforts.

As we have a large number of gymnasts we have split the day into five competitions. Please see list below as to what time your child’s competition is at & needs to be at the a hall for. (please do not arrive earlier then the stated time or else this will clash with the previous competition leading to chaos in the hall).

All gymnasts will need club uniform for the competition (girls black leotards & boy white club tshirt & club shorts – available this weekend on our Shop days -Fri 17th 5-7pm & sat 10-12pm -in Douglas Community School.
