2020 Events Update

Updated 5 August 2020

 

The board and staff at Gymnastics NSW would like to express their heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the 200+ gymnastics clubs in NSW that have adapted to our new COVID Safe world and followed the Return to Gymnastics Plan to provide COVID Safe gymnastics to the NSW community. 

We also wish to acknowledge you, our creative and passionate community, for your flexibility while adapting to training, both online and in the gym. 

COVID 19 has affected the global community in a way that will impact a generation, and gymnastics has not been immune to its affects. While the advice regarding COVID continue to evolve, the team at Gymnastics NSW continue to follow correct health and government advice to ensure the safety and welfare of all members. 

With this in mind, there are a few changes for the remainder of 2020. 

Coach and Judge Education Courses: 

Recognising the fundamental role that education plays in the development of the sport we will be endeavouring to continue to deliver education over the remaining months however active consideration is being given to how that can be done in a COVID environment.

All Competitions Cancelled for 2020

We recognise that if we were to proceed with events, the risk of infection and the likelihood of last minute changes would be disruptive for the sport, its continued operation, and for all clubs. The unprecedented case of a COVID positive attendee at an event could see infections spread across the state, placing greater strain on communities. It is our view that the risk is too great and the consequences too high. We want to see our clubs remain open and gymnasts enjoying their training,  and that we should collectively be doing everything in our power to ensure such. In this instance it regrettably means the cancellation of all events for the remainder of the year.  

Events are coming online!

While we cannot meet face to face, the team at Gymnastics NSW want to provide opportunities for our community to express their talents and creativity. With this in mind, Gymnastics NSW will be running three online events that will occur in 2020:

October 2020 | Gymsport Routine Showcase  

November 26| Virtual Festival of Performance Gymnastics 

November 2020 | Clubs Gala

More information will be released on each event in coming weeks. 

GNSW Team continue to support our members to navigate this ever changing COVID climate.
