March 20, 2020 Update

To our AGG recreational class families,

First of all I would like to thank all the families that have reached out with supportive emails and phone calls during this unprecedented event! We are proud to know we have such a caring community! 

As American Gold wants to be part of the solution, we will follow Governor Burgum's recommendations and will not be holding any in-gym classes for the following week (through March 29).

We are immediately freezing all of your recreational accounts and when it is safe for us to re-open, we will extend your tuition to cover all classes missed due to this shutdown. 

We understand what a stressful time this is for all our families! We want to do anything we can to keep some normalcy in our students daily life. To start, we will be sending out Virtual Classes and Training created by some of our coaches to all of our active families! Your kids have worked hard to develop their gymnastics skills. We want to help them be able to continue to work on what they can, so they are all set to jump back in as soon as we are able to! Look for one in your email soon!

Our Customer Experience Department will be available to phone calls (701-280-0400) Monday - Thursday from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM for any questions you may have. 

We miss you all already and can't wait to see you back in the gym as soon as possible! Stay safe and healthy! 

March 15, 2020 Update

To our AGG recreational class families,

With the Governor's mandate of K-12 schools being closed through the week, American Gold felt it would be prudent to cancel classes for Monday, March 16-Sunday, March 22 to do our part to help with social distancing. 

During this break, our staff will be using the extra time to focus on additional deep cleaning on top of our usual daily disinfecting and sanitizing protocols. 

You can schedule a makeup class for this week's lesson anytime through the end of May.

You can use this opportunity to do some of our stretching and flexibility skills at home!

We hope to be back on schedule Monday, March 23rd and will keep you posted as we watch the updates on a day to day basis. 

 

 

 

March 13, 2020 Update

After watching Governor Burgum’s press conference, AGG has decided to continue to offer team practices and classes through the weekend. We will reevaluate on Monday and update on a day to day basis.

We understand that with the abundance of information on TV, social media, and happening in conversations at home and at school, children may be feeling anxious, scared, or overwhelmed. Our staff and coaches will be using language meant to promote hygiene and health, while diffusing any nervousness children may have due to information-overload. We want your child to feel safe, and continue to have a fun place to play or train, even if their normal schedules are disrupted.

We are committed to taking care of our athletes. At this time, our facilities remain open for healthy children, run by healthy staff. If the situation changes, we will continue to update our families. In the meantime, rest assured that your child is being cared for by healthy staff, in a clean environment.

We understand that you (and your child) may be concerned about this issue, and our thoughts are with any of our community members who have been personally affected. Please rest assured that your child’s safety has always been, and will continue to be, our top priority.

If you have any concerns about attending, please know we respect each parents’ individual decision. Contact our Customer Experience department at 701-280-0400 with any questions about make-up classes or pauses in enrollment.

If your athlete is an Acro or Competitive team member, please contact your lead coach or program director directly with questions and concerns.

 

 

 

Update: March 12, 2020

USA Gymnastics Pulling all Sanctions through March 31, 2020.

 

I am heartbroken to inform you that we've just received word that USA Gymnastics is shutting down all Sanctioned Events through March 31st, 2020. Look for an official statement from them shortly.

 

What this means for our state is that we will be unable to host the ND USA Gymnastics State Championships next weekend in Fargo, ND. As an organization, American Gold is willing to postpone the event until a later date if ND Member Clubs still wish to participate. Please feel free to reach out with opinions regarding the possibility of rescheduling or canceling the event altogether.

 

We are working on finalizing Regional Qualification procedures for athletes who have meets left in their respective post-seasons. Please look for more information soon regarding Xcel, Level 6-7, and Level 8-10 Regionals -- meets hosts are currently planning to run all meets as scheduled, however, as with most news related to COVID-19 and its prevention, the situation is very fluid and evolving by the day.

 

Questions or concerns should be directed to Whitney Beck, ND State Administrative Committee Chair (whitney@americangoldgymnastics.com).

 

 

AGG sanitation practices:

We have our entire gym cleaned and sanitized daily by professionals including wiping down mats with a disinfectant.

We provide a hand sanitizer around the gym—help yourself anytime!

We use sanitary wipes in the gym to wipe down mats and equipment between and after classes.

You can also help stop the spread of germs by keeping your sick child home. You can schedule a make-up class any time you have to be gone through the end of May.

If you have any concerns, please contact us at 701-280-0400 and we will be happy to answer any additional questions!
