Wow, 2018 has been a busy year and we feel so lucky to have so many amazing kids and families here at Delta. While the gymnastics side of things winds down mid-December, behind the scenes our team are working hard on some exciting new changes and updates! So we thought we’d keep you in the loop, get in some housekeeping and get you ready to join us for another adventure in 2019!
Direct Debit Memberships
As many of you know, we’ve been transitioning our members over to a Direct Debit membership for gymnastics. This means an easy and more flexible monthly payment option for our families.
If you’re already on a direct debit membership, a couple of reminders:
- Your monthly membership fee is deducted on the 21st of each month for the month ahead.
- As we head into the end of the year, the memberships change slightly.
- On 21st November, you will be deducted one month’s membership, for 2 weeks of classes in December and 2 weeks of classes in January.
- On 21st December, there is no direct debit
- On 21st January, normal debits resume
You will be asked to make the switch to our direct debit membership option at the end of your current membership term. If you’d like to make the switch to our direct debit membership earlier, please contact our team today.
A New Delta Venue
As many of you already know, Delta Ascot (based in the St Margaret’s Gym) is closing as the school are demolishing the Phillip Harris Centre to commence work on their new sporting precinct. This means our Ascot members will finish classes on Friday 30th November this year and our classes will relocate to another Delta Venue in 2019.
We are currently in negotiations for a great new venue, within 6-8 kilometres of Delta Clayfield and Delta Kedron. Our Ascot members will be offered a class at Clayfield and will have first option to book into the new venue for 2019. We will let you know more information as soon as everything is finalised! Watch this space…
We are gearing up for next year’s classes and many of our children will move to a new class type in 2019. For our Groovers, heading to school next year – this means the switch to an afternoon or weekend Prep class. For some of our Intermediate Gym Kids, it means moving into our Aspire program and competition gymnastics; and for every Delta member, it means confirming a class position by re-booking into a new class for the new year.
Our team have been working hard to ensure we recommend the most suitable and beneficial class for each gymnast in 2019. This year, we hope to make it nice and simple for you to lock in your spot! Class recommendations for next year will be as close as possible to the same day and time you’re currently booked into. Our current Groover members will have the option to book into ANY Gym Kids Prep class scheduled for 2019.
Soon you will receive your 2019 Class Recommendation by email.
Lots Still To Come!
We still have lots to come in the gym. Ta Da Week for our Jnr Gym Kids and our two Brisbane Gym Kids Carnivals will be a great way to showcase all the children have learnt this year. The Delta Dinner is a fun, family celebration for our Aspire gymnasts and we will be enjoying lots of Christmas themed gymnastics throughout December!
Our last day of classes will be Friday 14th December* with 2019 gymnastics kicking off on Friday 18th January. Our Members Services Team will be available until Wednesday 19th December and will be ready to look after you again from Wednesday 2nd January. (*Delta Ascot gymnasts will finish on 30th November per above notes).
Thank you for a fantastic year of gymnastics. We hope you have had as much fun as we have and we’re looking forward to a fun, busy end to 2019.
Keep an eye out for your 2019 Class Recommendation soon!
