Dear CATS Team Families, 

 

We hope you are all staying safe and finding bright moments in this time of uncertainty with COVID-19. 

 

Gratitude:

We would like to thank you all for being valued members of the CATS family. For 32 years, CATS has been providing a safe space for children to play, thrive, gain valuable life skills, and to achieve their dreams. We want you to know how deeply grateful and honored we are for your support of our gym and its mission. We remain committed to serving our families now, and for many years to come, no matter what. 

 

We are also dedicated to the mandated social distancing protocol to end the hardship this virus is causing. We hope you will stick with gymnastics at CATS when this is over. 

 

Team Tuition & Enrollment:

Below is CATS plan for student memberships from now until we reopen:

  • For those currently enrolled in Team Groups, we will charge your card on file the 1st business of each month while we are closed due to COVID-19. 

    • We will credit 75% of this payment towards your Team Fees for the 2020-2021 competition season.

  • Your child will continue to have their class space held for them and will remain enrolled. 

  • We will open only when we can do so safely. 

  • Projected reopen date is May 1, 2020. 

  • All families will receive email notification several days prior to re-opening. 

 

If You Want to Help:

Like all small businesses, we are trying to maintain an operating budget during this shutdown to provide assistance and assure that CATS Gym (and it’s great instructors) will still be here for your children when it is safe to return. 

If you are able, there are several ways you can help:

  1. Enroll for CATS Summer Camps. Summer is coming. We know you are all going to need to get your children out and moving as much as possible once this shut-in ends. Please consider registering for our fantastic and enriching summer camps.

  2. Book a Birthday (or post Coronavirus) Party. We have opened dates through the end of 2020! Book your child’s birthday or any kind of party with us.

 

Virtual CATS: 

Please follow us on Instagram @catsgymboulder and Facebook. We sincerely want to stay connected during this uncertain and sometimes lonely time! Facebook and Instagram are the best ways to get quickly up to date information from us!  

 

If you are on social media, CATS Coaches are creating fun challenges and short lessons for kids to participate in while at home. 

If you are willing, tag us @catsgymboulder with your child’s participation. 

 

We appreciate your understanding and support and we know that working together is genuinely the best way for us all to succeed during this time of crisis. 


 

ALSO: 

Coaches are still working hard creating workouts online including: strength, flexibility, skills, cardiovascular strength and so much more! With a daily gymnastics challenge for your kiddos to try at home and be shown on our social media (with parent approval).

 

The more movement athletes can do in the upcoming weeks, the easier and more comfortable they will be when they return to the gym. Nothing is mandatory! These are just ideas for keeping them healthy, strong, and flexible. 

 

CATS is offering 2 versions of at-home workouts: written workout lists from Megan (with video supplement), and live video chat workouts with Rachel via Zoom, as well as, Facebook and Instagram Live on CATS Team Pages

 

Coach Megan is writing up workouts shared via email or text:

 

We are also willing to write up workouts that include home bar sets, beams, etc. if families are interested.

 

Coach Rachel is offering strength workouts via Zoom VideoChat, Facebook, InstaLive.

  • Geared toward Xcel Bronze-Platinum, JO Levels 3-6, although EVERYONE is welcome to join!

  • 40 minutes long - if athletes would like, Rachel is happy to extend the time

  • Runs through Zoom (free online video chat service similar to skype/facetime but with a much higher capacity so everyone can join) and Social Media Live Feeds. 

  • Please allow 5-10 minutes to download the Zoom app to your computer or phone (download in the app store) 

  • Rachel will add all future workouts to the CATS Team Calendar and post them to CATS Parents Facebook Page
