British Gymnastics Insurance Activation Update!!!!

BG

Dear Parent, As I am sure you are aware, despite significant internal and external testing over the last few weeks, British Gymnastics are currently experiencing technical difficulties due to the high volume of server traffic. This means that some members will experience issues in completing their membership online in our new system. They are working extremely hard to resolve this problem and hope to have the system fully operational as soon as possible.
British Gymnastics have released this statement to try to alleviate some of the concerns you may have:
1) British Gymnastics will provide full insurance provision for all clubs and members taking part in any recognised gymnastics activity in a British Gymnastics registered club whilst we are resolving the problems. This means that your sessions can continue as normal today.
2) Existing members that have not been able to complete the renewal process will have their Personal Accident cover in place as they usually would have as a benefit of membership.
3) New members that are unable to complete the process immediately will be provided with Personal Accident cover in the same way that a new participant would be covered for taster sessions within the club.
You will be able to attend your class as normal this week but please keep trying the link below over the next few days as all insurance must be activated by the 12th October.
Thanks for your patience and cooperation with this matter.

British Gymnastics Membership Activation

British Gymnastics Insurance Activation Coming Soon

INSURANCE ACTIVATION LINK https://www.british-gymnastics.org/membership

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL MEMBERS 2017-2018 YEAR

NEW MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL PROCESS FROM 1st SEPTEMBER 2017 TO BE COMPLIANT WITH NEW GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS (GDPR)

***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ***

Dear Member, Parent or Guardian,
Did you know that joining Salto Gym results in automatic membership with British Gymnastics which is the national governing body for gymnastics in the UK? Until this year we have sent British Gymnastics our members’ details such as names, ages and addresses to enable them to activate personal member benefits to include the issue of a membership pack, insurance and discounts. However to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we will no longer be able to pass on these personal details to British Gymnastics from 1 October 2017 therefore members will be required (or the parent/guardian if a member is under 16 years old) to renew their membership directly through the British Gymnastics website.
THE NEW MEMBERSHIP PROCESS – HERE IS HOW IT WORKS……..
From Monday 4th September we will still collect our club membership and insurance fee with the completed form overleaf which is due by Saturday 16th September at the latest.
From the 1st October when the British Gymnastics new online membership renewal system will be available you will be required to go online to activate the membership.
Activation will create the vital insurance cover to enable your child to take part in his/her class after 1 October 2017. Until the registration process is completed on the British Gymnastics website your child will not be able to participate.
The registration system on the British Gymnastics website will be quick and easy to use and can be accessed by mobile phone, tablet, computer or laptop. Following your activation of the membership insurance British gymnastics will immediately confirm insurance cover and membership benefits by both email and post. British Gymnastics will notify us when you have completed your registration.
To enable Salto administrative staff to ensure all members are covered from 1st October onwards we ask that you bring your British Gymnastics membership confirmation to the office prior to the first class taking place. This can be in the form of a printed email confirmation or electronic membership card that BG will email you following activation. We should be grateful if you would come to the class 10-15 minutes earlier to accommodate this process.
We will give you more information to help you with this process before 1st October but in the meantime thank you for your co-operation in relation to this change.

Salto host 4 Way Men’s International Event 26th November 2016

City of Lisburn Salto Gymnastics Centre were proud to host a junior boys 4-way international gymnastics competition at the weekend with countries represented by GB, France, Germany and Switzerland. We were delighted when British Gymnastics agreed to allow us to host this prestigious event during the year in which we celebrate our tenth anniversary of our premises opening in Lisburn. The boys put on a fantastic showcase of gymnastics and clearly demonstrated their ability to become future Olympians.

We would like to thank those who made a significant contribution towards the running of the event – Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, British Gymnastics, Patiomaster, Tayto and Lidl.

Special Mention to all members of staff, volunteers, judges, parents and gymnasts who helped out at the event. Your help and support is greatly appreciated.
