To all our Nanaimo Gymnastics Families:
Due to unprecedented developments related to the COVID-19 virus, and following recommendations from both the Province of BC and City of Nanaimo, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all our gymnastics programming effective immediately until March 30, 2020.
The health and safety of our athletes and community is of utmost importance to us. We will keep in close contact with Gymnastics BC and the Ministry of Health and re-assess when it is safe for our community and us to reopen.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to have further information for you at the end of the Spring Break. As this is uncharted territory, we ask for your patience as we navigate all of this.
We thank you in advance for your continued support in these difficult times.

Due to the rapid progression and growing concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to cancel all Preschool and Recreational classes for Monday, March 16, so that we can meet and take further actions necessary.
Please stay tune for further information.
March 14, 2020:
As of Saturday, March 14 all programming is running as scheduled.
Please rest assured the safety of all members remains our utmost priority. Sport facilities are often high contact zones and as such, our staff is conducting additional cleaning in both the gym and lobby areas, especially between classes.
If your athlete is sick (especially with a fever or bad cough), we ask you to take into consideration the other athletes and staff and keep them home until there are no symptoms for a 24 hour period.
All persons returning from out of the country are required to self-quarantine upon their return for 14 days.
For those attending the gym, please communicate the following guidelines to your child:
- No sharing water bottles, food or lip balm
- Try not to touch your face, especially nose, eyes and mouth
- Wash your hands when you first come into the gym and after class
- No high fives
- Immediately wash your hands/elbows if you sneeze or cough
- Parents: please wash your athlete's water bottle thoroughly every day - as well as any items that are used regularly (wrist bands, socks, gymsuits, shorts)
- Limit traffic in our gym by dropping off athletes and limiting viewing
The BC Centre for Disease Control also provides guidelines that everyone should abide to:
We continue to monitor Gymnastics BC, the City of Nanaimo and the Government of BC for further directives and protocols.
We thank you for your support in keeping our environment safe for all members.
