Gymnastics NSW welcome the release of Sport Australia’s Return to Sport Toolkit; an important document to help guide the next phase of a rebooting sport.
Working alongside the AIS Framework for Rebooting of Sport in a COVID-19 Environment and the Australian Government’s National Principles for the Resumption of Sport and Recreational Activities, the Toolkit provides practical resources that can be adapted and used by any level of sport.
The stages in this document aim provide a clear direction for community sport as it begins training again – Prevent, Prepare, Respond and Recover.
Gymnastics NSW (GNSW) CEO, Aaron Bloomfield, believes the release of this document is timely with the easing of restrictions in NSW.
“With the hospitality industry beginning to welcome patrons and our children back at school full time from this week, the gymnastics community in NSW is keen to get back into their clubs doing what they do best.”
“The team at Gymnastics NSW have been working with the NSW Office of Sport, NSW Office of Heath, Gymnastics Australia and our clubs to ensure a seamless and above all, safe return to gymnastics,” said Bloomfield
At this time, gymnastics clubs in NSW are continuing to abide by the NSW’s Government’s restrictions. In addition to preparing for a COVIDSafe return to sport, our coaches are still offering online gymnastics classes, or enjoying some outdoor fitness with small groups of 10 people or less.
Gymnastics NSW abide by the direction of the NSW Government and will continue to advocate for the sport of gymnastics and work with our clubs to ensure the strictest hygiene measures to ensure a safe return to our sport for all members.
