Dear Parents. Following price increase for insurance & competition’s by Gymnastics Ireland we appeal to you with this open letter.
Before we start taking registrations for 2018/19 academic year we would like to hear from you whether or not we need to stay with Irish Gymnastics Association and pay high fee or be an independent club to safe our money? If we decided to stay with Gymnastics Ireland the insurance & registration fee will be much higher this year.
Following price increase for insurance in June 2018, we requested that Gymnastics Ireland explain that what exactly caused this increase. We also expained that Rhythmic gymnastics is a lot safer and less traumatic as it does not perform as many risky tricks as in artistic, trampoline or acrobatics. Therefore it must be classified as less traumatic and be quoted separately as a specific gymnastics discipline. But we are still waiting for a response to our letter since June.
Membership, insurance and participation in competitions are extremely overpriced in Ireland and do not contribute to the development of sports in the country, particularly in rhythmic gymnastics. As a comparison, parents at British Gymnastics pay between £11 and £23 per year where they also run special programs to support large and middle-income families, while in Ireland parents pay over 100-110 EUR per year for one child. Imagine if there are 2 or even 3 gymnasts in the family, what would be the cost for participation in the competition, leotards, hotels and traveling expenses?
Your opinion is very important for us
