To Our Valued Membership,
As you are all aware, we are living in challenging times. We know and understand that everyone
is doing their best to adjust to our current situation as it changes and progresses. Some of us are working from home, or not working at all. We have become teachers to our kids as we work
through the difficulties of online learning, and we are doing our best to keep them active and occupied. We know that this COVID-19 pandemic has put a financial and emotional strain on
many of our families, and we want you to know that our staff and executive are doing our very
best to ensure that once we are permitted to reopen, that our club remains a financially viable
Cape Breton Gymnastics Academy (previously CBU Gymnastics) has been a valuable part of the community for more than 30 years. Our staff and coaches have been committed to keeping kids
active and fit, and to sharing their love of the sport and how it can be beneficial to its participants
in so many ways. We have been extremely fortunate to have top notch coaches, and a fantastic
group of parents who devote their time and efforts that have helped us to become one of the
most well respected gymnastics clubs on the Island
What many of our members may not know, is that we are a NOT FOR PROFIT organization and throughout each year our recreational and competitive programs, equipment, staff and operating expenses are subsidized solely by our registration fees and grant support. Our fees remain
reasonable only because we operate as a not for profit organization.
As of today, Cape Breton Regional Municipality buildings (including The Bicentennial Gym)
remain under restrictions which doesn’t allow us to utilize the gym at any capacity at this point
. Our club still does not know when we may be able to get back into the gym, and we know that
when we do that we will be adjusting to a “new normal”. In the interim, we have credited any
unused fees paid for the Winter term towards your Fall registration. We are working diligently
to put together new safety protocols and distancing measures, as well as updating staff procedure manuals and training tools. We may be implement new drop off and pick up procedures, hand washing stations, cleaning protocols, and other measures to ensure that we are operating as
best we can.
We want you all to know that the health and safety of your children, and our staff is the utmost priority for us, and that we are putting these measures in place to ensure that CBGA is a safe environment where your kids can continue to grow, learn and stay active. Should you have any questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to contact the club via email at email@example.com.
The best way to see updates will be our website which will
provide updates/changes recommended through the Province as well as Gymnastics Nova Scotia.
CBGA Facebook group and page will be lightly monitored over the next few months so we recommend emailing the club as the best way of communication
We miss you all and are looking forward to seeing your
smiling faces again soon.
In the meantime, stay home and stay safe – and remember….this too shall pass.
Executive Director/Cape Breton Gymnastics Academy
