OPEN GYM UPDATE – Closed Fri/Sat evening

We will be closing Friday and Saturday evening OPEN GYM until further notice.  We apologize for any inconvenience. 

As of right now, all Recreational classes, Team and Preschool Open Gyms will continue to run.  With the large number of students off of school, we may limit Monday/Friday Open Gym to the first 75 customers if need be.  In addition, look for some additional OPEN GYM times during the day in case your child needs to get in some aerobic activity.  IF there are any updates, check the website and Facebook page.  

As always, use your own discretion.  Please don’t send sick children to the gym.  Stay healthy!

Urgent Update: COVID-19

To Our Wildcard Gymnastics Community:

We understand that many are concerned about the health and safety of athletes amid the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and are seeking information about potential cancellations and the reactions to coronavirus concerns.

Because coronavirus is a rapidly evolving global health issue that is affecting geographic areas differently, it is challenging to provide a blanket statement that will remain constant over the coming weeks. That said, we wanted to share that we will continue to monitor the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and coordinate with local health officials for guidance and updates.

For now, Wildcard Gymnastics will remain open and our spring meet this weekend will continue as planned. We will continue to follow the recommendations of our local health departments, including reminding parents to keep gymnasts home if they are ill and promoting healthy behaviors to all of our gymnasts, families and community members.

While we know potential cancellations and disruptions are not ideal, the health and well-being of our athletes and families must be our top priority. We appreciate the community coming together and understanding should this be necessary.

Our highest priority is keeping our gymnasts, families, coaches and community as a whole safe – to help increase awareness, here are some helpful resources:
CDC advice: https://www.cdc.gov/…/2019-…/about/prevention-treatment.html
WHO Advice: https://www.who.int/…/novel-coronavirus-2…/advice-for-public
WHO’s Guidelines for Mass Gatherings: https://www.cdc.gov/…/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.ht…
WHO’s Hand-Washing Steps: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IisgnbMfKvI

We have an amazing gymnastics community and appreciate all of you! We will continue to provide updates as we receive more information or if new developments occur.

Sincerely,

Wildcard Gymnastics

Parent Volunteers Needed

Parents,

We are currently looking for parent volunteers who are willing to stay after practice each night to help boost our current sanitation practices. We would like to set up four parents each night.

To sign up to volunteer please click this form.

We are also asking parents to promptly pick up their child after practice. Please do not send your child to practice if they are symptomatic and encourage your child to practice safe hygiene – washing hands before and after practice.

Thank your for your cooperation as we begin to deal with the current health crisis. Please watch for an upcoming post containing more details concerning our policies during this time.

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

AAU Central Districts is being held April 24-26, 2020 at the UW Health Sports Factory in Rockford, Illinois. We must petition our gymnasts in to the meet because we are not attending the AAU State Championships in Wisconsin because it conflicts with USAG Regionals.

This is open to levels 2 and up. Cost is $100 due by March 2nd.

In addition, I need to know who would like to compete at AAU Regionals (also held at the UW Health Sports Factory) on May 8-10th. Cost will be $150 per gymnast. This payment will be due April 1st.

PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM TO LET US KNOW IF YOUR GYMNAST WILL BE COMPETING IN ONE OR BOTH OF THESE MEETS.  If you choose to let us know at a future date, there will be an additional late fee added onto the meet fee, along with the possibility of your gymnast not being able to compete.

Carnaval Meet Prep/Friday Practice

We are going to need a lot of help this week getting the gym ready for our meet on Sunday! We’ll be moving things around and setting up while practice is happening.  We are hoping to be finished by the end of practice on Friday.

Friday we are going to have a different practice schedule.

We are going to events at 4:30pm!  We will not go back to a missed event. Practice will end at 6:30pm. Please pick up your child immediately after practice! Level 2-3 will only be allowed in the gym if their parents are here helping. Level 4 gymnasts are allowed to stay as long as they are helping. Any gymnasts here while the upper gymnasts are practicing need to be helping. They can not be running around for safety reasons.

Levels 5-9 630p-830p
We are aiming for an 8:30pm end time, but it may need to be more like 9-9:30pm
