ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR OUR WAG & TRAMPOLINE COMPETITIVE FAMILIES:

Due to the Milton Sports Centre closure, we will not have access to our club facilities and cannot offer training after Friday evening, March 13th.

In addition, we have received the following information from Gymnastics Ontario:

At Gymnastics Ontario, the health and safety of gymnasts, their families, coaches, judges and volunteers are of the utmost importance. In light of the recent developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to cancel and or postpone all Gymnastics Ontario sanctioned competitions, at least through to April 5, 2020.

  • This means that our own Springer Challenge scheduled for March 21/22 has been cancelled. 
  • Just Bounce Interclub trampoline competition scheduled for Sunday March 15th is also cancelled.
  • GO is working with the host club of the WAG Level 7-10 & MAG Championships to possibly reschedule this competition to a later date.

Some of the cancelled events are also qualifiers in some disciplines for their respective Championships. The GO staff along with the Technical Committees will review their qualifying rules and communicate those at a later date.

GO will determine the status of all competitions scheduled after April 6, 2020 at a later date as we monitor this situation.

GO is asking participants, coaches, administrative staff, judges, volunteers and supporters to self isolate if they or a member of their immediate family travels anywhere outside of Canada (including USA) for the immediate near future until these recommendations are relaxed by the Province of Ontario .   The risk is still considered to be very low for contracting COVID-19 in Ontario. The Gymnastics Ontario Board of Directors and staff will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with our members as the need arises so please check your email regularly.

The Milton Springers Board of Directors will meet to discuss further steps for our club.  Information will be communicated as information is updated.
