Calling all families – preparing to reopen!!!

To all our families:

As we prepare to reopen, we would love to get feedback as to the interest and availability of your children returning to the gym. We have had to adjust our schedule, so please be aware that not all classes are guaranteed to be on the same day. If you have more than one day which would be convenient, we would like you give us options to consider.

We would like to offer classes first to those who are already a part of our Gold Medal Gymnastics family, next to those on the waiting list, and then open up to new students.

Please remember, the most convenient way to contact us to be certain we receive your message is to email me at coachgmgym@gmail.com.

Thank you, and we hope to see you all back in the gym very soon!

Newest Update on Closure due to COVID-19

Dear Gold Medal Parents:

With Governor Carney issuing a Stay-at-Home order for Delaware, we at Gold Medal Gymnastics are extended our temporary closure to follow his updated emergency declaration which states the order will remain in effect until May 15 or until the public health threat is eliminated.

We hope and pray all our families stay safe and well, and that our students will find time to stretch, condition, and do whatever skills they can with the space available in their homes or yards.

We look forward to reopening and seeing all of you again.

​~All of us from Gold Medal Gymnastics

We shall reevaluate the situation as we approach the end of the month. As much as we want to resume classes, we do not wish to take a chance with anyone’s health!
