Unfortunately, due to the severity of the Coronavirus in Connecticut, around the United States, and around the World, and in order to play our part in the fight against COVID-19, we were forced to close our school for 2 weeks on March 18th. The current plan is to reopen on April 1st if all goes well. We felt that we would not be promoting an atmosphere of health, fitness, and longevity if we had remained open. We do not want to see any of our athletes OR their family members ill. We believe that closing will offer our members an extra layer of protection over the next 2 weeks.
The appearance of this terrible virus could not come at a worse time, especially since we just opened our new facility. (But honestly any time is a bad time!) And then add in the abrupt end to the competitive season…It’s all quite a mess. However, we always try to stay positive and find the good in the bad! The early end to the season means there’s an early start to UPGRADE season. We have lots and lots of time now to train higher levels and new skills, meaning our athletes may be able to jump up 1,2, or even 3 levels in time for the next competition season!
In addition, we are using this time to learn new ways of communication with our athletes and their parents. We have taken to different forms of social media, such as YouTube, Instagram, & Facebook to post workout routines and tutorials for our athletes to follow while we are on our two week hiatus. The most important thing to us is that our athletes dedication and hard work does not get thrown out the door! Physical and mental maintenance is extremely important, especially when one spends so much time in the gym. It can be a shock when all of that suddenly disappears. But don’t worry, we will be back open before you know it!
Stay safe and healthy everyone! See you soon!
