Every year Douglas gymnastics Club runs a very successful Toy appeal for St Vincent De Paul.
So again this year we are asking all gymnasts to kindly donate a toy for this appeal.
Toys need to be new and unwrapped .
They can be left in the large boxes in the hallway of the gym
We are really hoping that this year will be our most successful appeal to date.
Last date to donate will be Saturday 16th December.

Hi All,

The Gymstart challenge for all the Douglas Gymnasts will take place on Sunday 10th Dec in the UL Sports arena (University of Limerick) @2.30pm

Please do not arrive any earlier then 2.20pm – as you will not be permitted to enter the arena until 2.30pm – if you arrive earlier there is a café next to the sports arena where you can go for a coffee etc to wait.

Reminder all gymnasts to wear
Girls
Black club leotard – black with diamonds across the front of it. ( no vests, showing underwear, leggings or shorts to be worn. Gymnasts will also be doing the event in their barefeet.
Hair tied up neatly

Boys
Black club shorts & white club tshirt
(boys from elm group – black leotard and leotard shorts)

Please make sure all the gymnasts items of clothing are clearly labelled.
They will all also need a bag to put their tracksuits etc into prior to the event (we are unsure as to how crowded area will be where gymnasts will be handed over to the coaches or if this will be inside or outside the hall – if it is possible we will try and get the gymnasts to leave all belongings with parents)

If any of the gymnasts have a club tracksuit or club hoodies etc – please wear these to the event so the gymnasts are easily identifiable to the coaches on arrival

The club shop will be open this Friday 1st Dec from 5-7pm & Sat 2nd from 11-2pm if anyone wishes to purchase leotards , shorts , tshirts etc

Best of luck to everyone taking part!

(We suggest that where possible can we try and ensure it is adults only to come to the shop & the gymgym.ie pop up shop – so parents can look and purchase xmas items without gymnasts being present )

Saturday 2nd Dec – shop open – stock items only (no orders will be taken for hoodies)

Unfortunately we cannot take hoodie, leotard orders etc here in the office -all items must be purchased from the shop . We are extremely lucky to have a super volunteer – Ber who kindly runs the shop for us. She sorts out all the stock and places all the orders – Thanks Ber

Thank you

EXCITING RENOVATIONS UPDATE”

(Gym Closed Saturday 21st October to Tuesday 31st October incl.)(Classes will re-commence on Wednesday 1st November)

Dear Parents & Gymnasts,

As you will be aware from your registration email we had mentioned that we hoped to do some renovation in the gym this term. This plan has moved very quickly & we are very excited to give you our latest update and share with you our exciting renovation plans.

In the gym we have reached capacity – in terms of equipment we can fit in and also gymnasts – so we have decided to increase the gym space by an additional 50% !! We are going to do this by taking down the wall at the far end of the gym and taking over the unit next door to us.

In order, for the work to be carried out in a safe manner we are going to have to close from Saturday 21st October to Tuesday 31st October incl. This is to ensure the builder can access the gym and take down the wall safely.

All classes will return to normal on Wednesday the 1st November

At this stage we hope to be able to use most of the gym – however the far side & pit area may still be out of action – but hopefully not for long.

Safety of our gymnasts is our utmost priority -if for any reason we feel it is necessary to prolong the closure & delay the re-commencing of classes we will do our utmost to give you as much notice as possible. Please keep an eye on our facebook & website for updates.

It might take a little bit of time before we have full use of the additional space but I am sure all our gymnasts will benefit hugely from this extra space going forward.

We would like to Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during the upcoming renovations.
