Dear Clubs and Coaches,
Following the updated Government advice, British Gymnastics made the decision to cancel all national events until 30th June 2020 (see full statement here). Gymnastics Northern Ireland can confirm that all
organised events up to 30th June 2020 have been cancelled. Safety is our number one priority and we must put our clubs, their members and staff first.
I understand cancellations, the closure of clubs and the temporary cessation of all gymnastics activity is extremely disappointing for gymnasts, coaches and clubs. I am acutely aware that this is an extremely trying time for all clubs and coaches. I encourage you all to remain positive throughout this time, to continue to engage with your members and I urge members to support and stand by their clubs. The gymnastics community is very strong - reach out to your neighbouring clubs and coaches, you may be able to help and support each other.
Overall, our priority is the health and wellbeing of everyone involved and we must follow the advice and guidance of the government and work together during this difficult time. I can only hope that this all passes as quickly as possible and that we can continue with our activity. We will be sure to update you as soon as we can.
Please follow the advice issued by Government and British Gymnastics and stay safe.
Please send any further enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair of the GNI Management Committee
