 LATEST UPDATE...

UPDATE 04/11/2020  

A Message From Our Director & Trustees #Teammk

Milton Keynes Gymnastics. COVID - 19

I refer you to my last newsletter and can confirm that our arrangements for replacement on-line (Zoom) gymnastic lessons are well underway. We will by tomorrow morning have issued most of the emails for each gymnast setting out the date and time of the appropriate on-line lessons. Recreational classes for Thursday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday have been sent out along with all squad lessons. The information on Friday and Saturday lessons and Trampolining should be issued by tomorrow night.

Now we know that although we use the email addresses provided by parents, for a number of reasons a small number do not seem to get through. Can I ask everyone to look in their spam or junk box as the email might find its way into there. If you haven’t received your email providing the Zoom lesson details, please contact us on helen@mkgym.co.uk

You will understand that this is a huge task that is being carried out by our coaches and inevitably, there will be some hiccups and problems. Please bear with us over the next few days as we try to organise things under lockdown.

We have also had a few emails already from some parents complaining that the Zoom lesson time is at a different time to when the previous class was held. I regret it is simply impossible to run every single class at the same time under Zoom but the class will be on the same day and not a huge difference time wise. Our coaches are doing this voluntarily from home for the children and the Charity. So your support and forbearance would be appreciated.

Finally, it seems that there is considerable confusion around the legislation passed today and how it effects schoolchildren and after school indoor sports clubs. We are keen to follow the lockdown rules and so are seeking some clarification on what this means and whether we will be able to continue some classes. I will issue another newsletter as soon as we receive that clarification.

In the meantime, keep safe.

UPDATE 01/11/2020  

A Message From Our Director & Trustees #Teammk

Milton Keynes Gymnastics. COVID - 19

You will by now, all be aware of the recent announcement of another national lockdown. Despite the fact we have not had a single case in the 3 months that we have been open, we are being told to close. The children are mixing at school so it makes little sense.

This means that we will have to close from Thursday and our last lessons in the gym will be on Wednesday evening. Set out below is how this affects the various types of lessons. For most, we are arranging to deliver the gymnastic lessons virtually via Zoom. Further details of these lessons will be sent out over the next couple of days. We would ask everyone not to cancel your standing order at this time as we intend to continue to provide a service for your child. If for any reason we do not provide a service / gym lessons we will provide refunds on our return early December. Gym clubs did continue under all 3 regional levels, even Level 3, so unless the National Lockdown continues after 2nd December we intend to reopen again with the same lessons at the same times etc. even if Milton Keynes is put into Level 3.


Your continued support and forbearance at this difficult time is most appreciated. I am aware that some parents are helping out by giving a little extra in donations to the Charity. Any help of that kind will be much appreciated. We are determined to carry on whatever is thrown at us and whilst all our staff will be going onto some form of furlough, they are dedicated to providing virtual lessons to the children, come what may.


Recreational and Advanced Rec Lessons 

Our most experienced coach Andre will be providing Virtual Zoom lessons every day Monday to Saturday for those children in Recreational classes and separate lessons for Advanced Rec gymnasts each day. Full details will be sent out to you over the next 2 days. Please keep an eye out for this communication.

Squad Lessons

Your child’s coach will be in touch with you Monday or Tuesday about the virtual Zoom lessons that are applicable to your child and how to access them.


Pre School Classes 

The pre-school coaches will be in touch with you over the next 2 days to explain what will be done for the little ones. Again, we are looking to provide exciting, fun filled virtual lessons to relieve their boredom during lockdown.


Ballet 

Miss Emily has decided that she wants to provide virtual Zoom ballet lessons so her children don’t miss out. She will be in touch with details over the next few days.


Trampoline Lessons 

At the moment we have not sorted out what we will be doing in this area and will communicate again to those affected in the next 2 days.


Adult Gym, Play Gym, Saturday-Teens Gym, and Schools lessons 

These areas will all be cancelled throughout the 4-week lockdown. If you have pre-paid for any lessons after Wednesday please contact us for a full refund.


I will contact you again shortly. Many thanks for your continued support. Keep safe.

Chair of Charity Trustees


UPDATE 19/10/2020  

A Message From Our Director & Trustees #Teammk 

Dear Parents,

As you will be aware, we are currently working with Milton Keynes Community Foundation to deliver a new, state-of-the-art Gymnastics and Table Tennis Centre on Fen Street in Brooklands and would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to support the project.

 The planning application for this project has now been submitted, and be viewed online by clicking here or by visiting Milton Keynes Council’s planning portal and entering application reference 20/02419/FUL. Direct link onto the portal can be found at

https://publicaccess2.milton-keynes.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=makeComment&keyVal=QHESW7KWGY500.

 You can submit a comment in support of the application online and via post. In the next few days we will share a step-by-step guide explaining how to comment on the planning application. We will also have postal reply cards available at the gym, for you to take away and submit. If you provided us with comments during the pre-application consultation on the project, we will be in touch directly to explain how you can comment on the proposals.

 Please do give time to this if you can, as the application would allow us to build new, bespoke facilities and enable the continued growth of the centre.

 If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the team at the gym. You can also contact Nicki Atkinson in the project team by emailing Trustee@mkgym.co.uk

Best wishes,

Milton Keynes Gymnastics #TeamMK

At Milton Keynes Gymnastics, we are proud to say that we are the home of champions; World, European, British, Regional and County champions in fact!  We are equally proud to say that we are home to thousands of children who simply want to have fun and enjoy the wonderful sport of gymnastics.

The facilities at our club are one of the biggest and best purpose-built centres in the country; enabling children to develop to their full potential.

Our coaches and staff are fully committed to provide fun, excitement and care, in addition of course, to expert technical coaching. All are CRB checked and qualified in their particular discipline. Our coaches are continually expanding their knowledge and expertise by attending higher level coaching qualifications; some have achieved the extremely high accolade of ‘High Performance Coach’.

To find out more, please call our reception team on 01908 586500.

The club is based at the Kingston centre just behind Tescos in Milton Keynes. The gymnasium is 40 metres by 40 metres with a dance studio and Parkour Centre built in. We have a cafe area with a built in seating gallery as well as changing rooms and showers for both males and females.

We run sessions for babies in play gym, after school gymnastics and trampolining all the way up to adults.

Most of our coaches are previous champions, including our two head coaches who represented the club, at county, region and at international competitions on numerous occasions.

We operate a 'No Videoing' policy.  We do not allow any videoing of our training sessions.  This is to protect our gymnasts and coaches within the building.  However, it is permitted at competitions and displays.
