With no end in sight to the Greater Sydney lockdown, Miranda RSL Youth Club will be introducing online strength training for intermediate to advanced athletes who wish to maintain their fitness during our prolonged closure. These classes will be free for all Youth Club members and run on Zoom by our Advanced Class coaches from 6:45-7:30pm Monday and Tuesday.


To attend a strength training session, please send an email to mirandarslyc@gmail.com with the subject ‘Zoom Training’ and we will forward the link to you on the day.

As you will no doubt be aware, the NSW Government today announced a week-long extension to the Greater Sydney Lockdown. As a result, the Youth Club will remain closed, with Term 3 classes now scheduled to resume on Monday the 19th of July.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for further updates!

Following today’s announcement by the NSW Premier, several changes to class structure and procedure will come into effect from 4pm this afternoon.

Miranda RSL Youth Club will once again limit capacity in accordance with the 4 square metre rule and will be limiting group sizes within classes. In order to further reduce the risk of transmission, we will also be reintroducing our ‘Drop, Train, Leave’ policy and will no longer provide a dedicated viewing area for parents and siblings.

We will be continuing to perform temperature checks on arrival, enforce social distancing during classes and sanitise equipment regularly. Furthermore, coaches will once again be required to wear a mask. There is no requirement for athletes however they are welcome to wear a mask if they wish.

Please pay close attention to the list of case locations on the NSW Health website and stay up-to-date with the latest restrictions and advice. As always, athletes must not attend training under the following circumstances:

  • if they are unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath).
  • if an immediate family member is unwell or has COVID-19 symptoms.
  • if they have recently attended a COVID-19 Hotspot as listed on the NSW Health Website.
  • or if they have been advised by health authorities to self isolate or have returned from overseas within 14 days.

For more information visit health.nsw.gov.au. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns regarding the new restrictions.

Welcome back to Miranda RSL Youth Club for 2021.

This year we are excited to welcome three new Trampoline and Tumbling coaches to our team, Rhiannon Bainat, Jaime Mader and Liam Merchant. The Youth Club has also purchased a new set of skipping ropes, a new wedge and a new set of boxes for our Trampoline and Tumbling program to replace ageing equipment.

We can also confirm that this years ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Miranda Cenotaph has once again been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We encourage you to instead mark the occasion at home.

Please be aware that Term Fees have increased from 2020. Enrolment in a 1 hour class for a 10 week term will now cost $150 while a 2 hour class for a 10 week term has increased to $250. The annual registration fee of $60 for Trampoline and Tumbling and $40 for Karate must also be paid.

Finally, a reminder that our COVID Safety plan remains in effect. For the safety of our members, please DO NOT come to training if:

  • You or an immediate family member is unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath).
  • You have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • You have been advised to self isolate by health authorities (including those currently awaiting COVID-19 test results).

Here’s to another great year of fun and fitness at Miranda RSL Youth Club!

All patrons will be required to wear a mask when attending the Youth Club except whilst training. All non-registered members will also be required to sign in via QR code. As such, parents and siblings should remain outside the Youth Club when dropping off or picking up members. If you have any questions or wish to speak with your activity supervisor, please get in touch via phone.

Be sensible, stay safe and we look forward to having you back for another year of fun and fitness at Miranda RSL Youth Club.

 

In response to the greatly reduced levels of community transmission in NSW, the 10km participation boundary for gymnastics clubs in Greater Sydney will be lifted as of Saturday the 26th of September. You can read the latest Office of Sport statement here.

Please note that our COVID Safe measures as detailed in our Return to Training Plan remain in place.

Update as of 24th of September 2020: The 10km participation will be lifted on the 26th of September. Please see the most recent news post for more information.

In response to the latest NSW Health Advice for Sport and Recreation, Gymnastics NSW will be implementing a new 10km participation boundary for club members. This means that Trampoline and Tumbling athletes must now live within 10km of the Youth Club in order to continue to participate in our program. This change will come into effect from the 28th of August 2020. Please note this restriction does not apply to school classes or students in our Karate Program.

If you live outside the boundary and do not have another Gymnastics NSW club with a Trampoline and Tumbling program in your area, you will still be eligible to attend our club under the specialised training rule. As we are the only Trampoline and Tumbling program in the South East region, none of our members will be effected at this stage. This may change if the NSW situation worsens.

If you have any questions or are unsure about your eligibility, please contact Trampoline Head Coach Robert Bull on (02) 9522 0484.

When the Youth Club shutdown in March due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we were unsure when we would be able to return. While our doors may have been closed, there was plenty going on behind the scenes to make sure that we would be ready to reopen when the NSW situation stabilised and restrictions eased.

During our closure, all coaches were required to complete the Department of Health Covid-19 Infection Control Training. Our Trampoline and Tumbling coaches were also engaged in a number of professional development activities including weekly online seminars on topics such as strength and conditioning, injury prevention techniques and behaviour management. Additionally, our four Beginner coaches begun their Intermediate Trampoline Coaching Accreditation while our Intermediate and Advanced Coaches begun accreditations in new disciplines including Tumbling, KinderGym and Gymnastics for All.

We also took the opportunity to undertake a number of maintenance tasks in and around the Youth Club including servicing our heaters and remounting the wall matting in the Trampoline Hall. COVID safety equipment such as perspex shields and a cover for the bubbler were also installed to protect the health of our members and staff. Finally, a deep clean of the Karate Room and Trampoline Hall took place in the week prior to reopening to ensure that the Club was safe and ready for our members to return.

Our COVID-19 Safety Plan was put together by Chief Instructor Louise Brown and Coach Emily. This information was communicated to our coaches through a COVID-19 Staff Handbook and to our members via our Return to Training Plan. In the week prior to reopening, all Youth Club coaches attended a Safety Induction to ensure they fully understood the new COVIDSafe policies.

It has now been a whole two weeks since we reopened and the Youth Club has quickly settled into the new normal. As always with this pandemic, it is an ever evolving situation and things may change quickly. Any changes to restrictions or Youth Club policies will be quickly communicated to our members via email and using our social media accounts. We are very grateful for your continued support throughout this trying time and we can assure you that our commitment to providing safe, fun and inclusive activities for young people remains unchanged.

All the best,

The Miranda RSL Youth Club Coaching Team.
