What a year 2020 has been! We wanted to put out an update to let everyone know where things are at with us for our programming for the rest of the season and to wish everyone a happy new year!
FALL 2020 SESSION
First of all, to those registered for our Fall 2020 season, thank-you for your patience as we have navigated everything Covid-19 and for your support & cooperation. The original plan was for our Fall 2020 session to run from September 9-December 16, 2020 at our Southdale location. This would have been a session of 14 or 15 classes for everyone depending on what day your child was attending. In St. James our session was set to be September 16-December 2, for a total of 12 weeks. Since we had to put a pause on the session as of October 30, we still need to finish the fall session in the new year when we can be back to in-person classes.
We have to wait to hear what the next set of restrictions will look like in Manitoba before we can announce when we will be able to reopen and finish the Fall 2020 session. For Southdale, that means another 6-7 weeks of classes, and St. James has 5 weeks of classes to go. As soon as we know when we can reopen we will let everyone know the exact dates we will resume our fall session.
WINTER & SPRING 2021 SESSIONS
With the length of the closure we have had to endure, we will not be able to have 3 sessions this season, fall, winter, & spring, and instead we will have two. Registration is now open online through our website for what we are calling our Winter/Spring 2021 session. This 12 week session will start as soon as our Fall 2020 session classes have wrapped. We will update our website and post on our social media our session dates for the Winter/Spring 2020 session as soon as we know them. We are estimating this session could start in late March. The pricing on our website under the Register page is updated with Winter/Spring session pricing. You can do your registration online and then handle payment once we reopen.
2020 has been a year we will never forget here at GymKyds! Though things have been hard with the pandemic, we have grown in different ways this year and been pushed to think outside the box. We started doing GymKyds On The Go travelling gymnastics lessons and parties, we tried our first ever Zoom classes, we made all kinds of web content for our YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook to stay connected, and so much more. Through it all we are forever grateful for our GymKyds families and supporters, thank you for your words of encouragement and support throughout this past year. We love what we do and are very much looking forward to when things are back to “normal” and we can go back to in-person programming. Being away from classes just makes us even more grateful for what we have. We wish you all a safe & happy holiday & very much look forward to seeing you again soon!
