Clubs start to bounce back!
29th June 2020, 16:44pm | National
Today was an important day for our clubs nationwide as they began to return to sport as part of Phase 3 of the governments reopening of society & business.
Commenting on the importance of today's return GI CEO Ciaran Gallagher commented...
'Our clubs have been working diligently over the past 4 weeks preparing for today. The Gymnastics Ireland Return to Sport (RTS) plan is the only government approved plan for the sport of gymnastics in the country and is solely for Gymnastics Ireland member clubs only. Our clubs have been working through a detailed 6 step compliance process framework which in addition to having formal government approval is also formally approved for operation by our insurers Marsh. In completing all the necessary steps our clubs are clearly demonstrating their commitment to the safety of our members. Our clubs have the full back-up of Gymnastics Ireland support/resources in operating within this new covid-19 environment. While everyone is taking a slow and measured approach to returning it has been great to see our gymnasts stepping back into the sport they love today.'
Only official GI member clubs who have completed the 6-step compliance process are approved for operation within the framework of the government endorsed GI RTS plan. All GI member clubs are listed via the 'club-finder' section of our website - https://www.gymnasticsireland.com/member-clubs
