February 2024 Newsletter

WOW! We're powering through Term 1 and it's almost the end of February! 

There's a lot happening in the gym, so lets get you up to speed...

Gymnastics Victoria Awards: 

We are thrilled to announce that Trident Gymnastics was named the 2023 Victorian Small Club of the Year at the recent Gymnastics Victoria Awards Night!

This marks the second year in a row Trident has been bestowed this honour; following our win as 2022 New Club of the Year. We know this award will mean so much to our community and couldn't be more proud to share it with you. 

In addition to being named 2023 Small Club of the Year, Trident was also named as a finalist in the following categories: 

  • Recreational Coaching Team of the Year (all coaches)

  • Competitive Coaching Team of the Year (Tim Lees and Alyona Kvasha)

  • Inclusive Initiative of the Year (Uniform)

  • Outstanding Contribution to Gymstar (Chloe Frost) 

Uniform: 

A reminder that all participants in our classes need to wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move freely. Although we don't have a set uniform, suggested gymnastics attire includes: 

  • T-Shirt/Singlet

  • Shorts/Leggings

  • Leotard

  • Shoulder length (or longer) hair tied back

  • Water bottle

Please make sure you don't wear any clothing with zips or buttons as this damages our equipment!

 

Did you know that you can purchase a Trident leotard?

Trident club leotards are available to purchase via the Customer Portal for all members.

 

This unisex design means that any of our members can look the part - just opt for diamantés or not! 

The leotard is available to purchase in both a traditional women's and men's gymnastics cut.

Sample leotards can be tried on at the office - just see a Venue Leader for assistance.

Tuition and Policies - FAQs:

We've had a few questions about tuition and our policies over the last month, so have put together a FAQ section to assist all of our members who might share these questions! 

Why is my tuition sometimes more and sometimes less? 

Trident runs a monthly tuition system. This means that although a standard month has four weeks, sometimes there might be an extra class due to the number of days in the month. If your monthly direct debit amount looks different to what you were expecting, double check the number of times your specific gymnastics day occurs in that month; often times theres an extra class! 

Is Trident closed over the school holidays? 

Trident runs classes throughout the year and closes for holiday weeks scheduled by the club. This means that gymnastics does run for part of each school holiday period, although we do close at strategic times like Easter. Check out the Important Dates section of our website for all information about scheduled holiday weeks in 2024.

 

We are away during the school holidays. What do we do? 
No worries! Jump onto our Customer Portal and log your absence from class to receive a make up token for use when you're back. The token will expire 30 days from the date of issue and can be used after the scheduled class. 

I have logged an absence via the Customer Portal, but can't see my make up token. Am I doing something wrong? 

Absolutely not, as long as your absence is notified more that one hour before the class start time. Make up tokens only appear on your account after the scheduled class as concluded. This means that if you log an absence for a Tuesday class on the Monday, you won't be able to book a make up until after the Tuesday class has run. The token will expire 30 days from the date of issue, so there's plenty of time to get your make up sorted!

How do I read the transactions on the portal and understand what each charge is for? 

The line item charge on your account will always show what the charge is for, however it can be a bit tricky to read. Normal monthly tuition charges are named as a number and then the name of the month.

For example: 

  • "02 February" is for February tuition - the second month of the year

  • "03 March" is for March tuition - the third month of the year

Most questions can also be answered by reading our Tuition and Payment Policy, which is available on our website here
