Back up and running. Covid has not dampened spirits! 

By Quinte Bay Gymnastics Club

Quinte Bay Gymnastics Club is thrilled to announce that we are back up and running with our competitive and recreational programs.  On June 15th, when the club was able to reopen for our competitive athletes, they were lined up outside the doors eagerly waiting with smiles on their faces, as for many athletes the club is like their second home where they are used to training 6-20 hours per week.  Having 3 months off, with only minimal online conditioning and training meant it was a slow start back. Athletes have been working hard to regain their skills, while conditioning their bodies to be able to try new skills. We are still awaiting the green light from Gymnastics Ontario to resume training to the extent it was prior to our shut down.  So athletes can be spotted through newer skills by their coaches and where our Acrobatic teams are able to resume stunting in their partnerships.

It is unknown whether competitions will occur for the 2020/21 season. However Gymnastics Ontario and our competitive teams are staying hopeful that there will be competitions.  We are confident that our athletes will embrace any challenges or modifications that the upcoming season will bring.

The Covid-19 pandemic has set restrictions, but has not dampened our spirits.  The club is limited to 50 athletes in the gym at any given time.  Our club is running throughout the week, during daytime, evenings and weekends to maximize programming and space.

On September 21st, Ashley and Melissa were excited to welcome back the recreational athletes into the club.  The restrictions set in place have meant some significant changes within our recreational programing.  We are still offering our wide-range of classes starting as young as crawling up to our adult programming.  Although there have been some modifications working around social distancing, such as decreasing the number of classes offered along with limiting the number of athletes to 6 in a class, implementing sanitizing procedures and a new approach in the setup of our circuits one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to safety and the fun, fitness and fundamentals that gymnastics provides for all who walk through our doors. 

Quinte Bay is still offering our ever popular Kinder Drop-In for children 5 years and younger on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:30am.  Children can explore the gym with a parent/guardian(s) in a less structured program.  

We are proud to offer our Limitless Drop-In program which is geared to anyone in our community with a disability.  This is an opportunity for children to explore the space while getting in some physical activity.  This program is offered on Saturdays from 3:30-4:30pm.  

New this year we are excited to be offering 2 great adult programs; GymFit is offered on Tuesdays from 7:30-8:30pm and Adult Gymnastics is offered on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30pm.  As well as a dedicated Tumbling for Cheerleaders program, which is offered on Fridays from 5:00-6:00pm.

We are hopeful, come the New Year that we are able to resume some of our other amazing programs which include Birthday Parties, Camps, School Trips & More.
