During the last few months we have worked very hard to upgrade our foam pits to the latest standards. The original pits were completed in 1993 and the lockdowns gave us the opportunity to get this work done. Our gymnasts and coaches are delighted with the new pits and has enabled them to perfect their skills in a safe environment. Photos of the project can be found in our gallery

We are delighted to announce that due to Covid 19 restrictions being lifted we will be reopening our facility on Monday 26th April. All our class times will remain the same as they were in December when we were locked down. All rules will be as before as guidance has not changed. If you are unsure of your class times please contact Vikki through our closed Facebook pages. Our coaches and staff are very happy to get back to work and look forward to seeing our gymnasts again, learning new skills and perfecting old ones.

Due to the new Covid-19 restrictions we have closed our facility until the Scottish Government gives us the ok to open again. At the moment we hope that will be in March, but as the situation is changing every day we can only speculate. We continue to make sure the gym is safe and secure so that we can open again as soon as we have permission. We thank most sincerely those parents who have continued to support us during this lockdown and we will ensure that we make it up to you when we get back to training. In the meantime our coaches and staff are working hard with zoom training sessions that are open to any of our members who join our Facebook pages. Please encourage your children to take part for their mental health as well as their fitness.

 

Its been hard work but we are pleased to report that since reopening in September we have been able to restart most of our classes. This has taken an unbelievable amount of work from our staff and coaches to make and keep our facility Covid free. All our gymnasts have been amazing  following our Covid rules and we would also like to thank all our parents and carers for their support. We are very pleased and relieved that we have not been put into level 4 restrictions at the moment so we will carry on under the current restrictions. We have organised a Christmas competition this year but it will be without spectators but we hope to do some video recordings.

Great news

We are open at last. Thanks to a major effort from our staff, coaches and helpers we were able to open our facility again on 31st August. To enable us to open again we have followed the guidelines of our National Governing Body to ensure as can be practicable,  a safe environment for our staff, coaches and gymnasts. As a result we have reduced the number of gymnasts in each class and increased the number of classes each week in order to get as many of our gymnasts back training. We understand that many of our gymnasts will have had little or no training during lockdown and we will be slowly working up the training content over this month. Visit our Facebook pages for further information of class times and availability. Our gymnasts and coaches are delighted to be back and we look forward to exciting times ahead.

Gym News

16th July 2020

We are delighted to report that we plan to re-open our facility on Saturday 1st August. This is a provisional notice and will depend on final guidance from the Scottish Government and our National Governing Bodies. There will be significant changes to our class times and class sizes to reduce the risk of Covid-19 effecting our gymnasts and coaches. These have been published on our closed Facebook pages. If you are not an existing member your can request to be one by asking to join the class that your child attends. If you are looking to join one of our classes, you can request information from our Operations Manager by emailing vikki@falkirkgym.com. It will be no surprise that to get over 500 gymnasts registered for our new classes is a huge task and we would ask for your patience while your requests for classes are processed. Please do not telephone the gym at this time as our staff are working from home at the moment.

Happy New Year. We hope that all our gymnasts, coaches, parents and carers  had a wonderful Christmas break and are now looking forward to the new year. Our classes restart today 6th January and we are looking forward to seeing all our gymnasts back in the gym, We are delighted to announce that we have a new full time senior coach starting with us in February. This will give us new opportunities to develop our gymnasts and we look forward to seeing the new and exciting skills that she can add to our training programs. 

December 2019

As we near the end of 2019 and also the end of a decade, we can look back on another very busy and successful year. Our new tumbling and trampoline classes have been a great success with full classes every session. Our Infinity display team have been to Greece and took part in Cosmogym 2019 and have just completed another Gymfest in Perth. Our girls competition club have taken part in a number of competitions in the last month winning many medals and continue to improve and update their skills. Our annual competition in Grangemouth Sports Complex had a record entry and enabled us to promote a number of gymnasts to our advanced classes. We had another very successful Christmas show over two days at the start of the month and now look forward to the Christmas break. Our fundraising events during the year have allowed us to paint the interior of the gym, landscape the front gardens, renew the gym heating system and finish the roof renewal on the front building. We wish all our gymnasts, parents and staff and very happy time during our break and look forward to seeing you all again in 2020.

Happy New Year to all our gymnasts, parents and coaches. We hope you all have had a good break over the holidays and are ready to get back to training. Our Christmas show was a great success with over 300 parents and friends attending the two shows. We raised over £1200 which will go a long way to buy new equipment and fund the continuing renovation work at the gym. Our classes will start back to normal on Monday7th January.
