Fundraising As we are such a small club fundraising is an essential part of belonging to GGI. In order to keep costs to a minimum and to support our gymnasts and coaches, parents are expected to fully participate in this aspect of our club, either by donations, time or labour. FUNDRAISERS ARE A GOOD SOCIAL TIME TO MEET AND MIX WITH OTHER PARENTS AND FAMILIES. We try to have at least one type of Fundraising Event per term. Please contact your daughter’s coach or a committee member if you have any new ideas for raising funds for our girls.
Committee/Parent Support When you join our club, your support is needed to ensure our club continues to grow and operate successfully. The club has a basic committee: President, Treasurer, Secretary, Coaching Coordinator, Fundraising Coordinator and Competitions Secretary - new members are always welcome! It is a good chance to get involved in your daughter’s sport and see what goes on behind the scenes. Meetings are held once a month at the Caledonian Gymnasium. Parents support at competitions is also necessary and greatly appreciated. We do require your help at 2/3 competitions per year to make sure that they run smoothly.
Club Fees The club attempts to set fees at a minimum for parents but must cover hall hire and coaches expenses. Fees are set as soon as the number of gymnasts attending classes is known. Fees are sent out quarterly, based on the four-term school year. Your fees can be paid online, given to your coach at training or sent to the treasurer (whose address is on the bill). Extra costs such as holiday training (when appropriate), music fee’s and administration fees are also added onto your bill.
Association Fees There is a Registration Fee that must be paid by every gymnast. This includes both competing and recreational gymnasts. This is set by NZ Gymnastics and is a levy which is required to cover costs such as coaching manuals, coaches training, newsletters and general NZ Gymnastics costs. This amount varies and depends on whether your daughter is a senior or junior gymnast.
Competition Fees Competition fees must be paid to the club before the gymnast competes. These fees can range from $15.00 to $60.00 depending on whether it is a championship competition or not. Your daughter will not be able to compete in a competition if the fees have not been paid. Gymnasts competing in both Individual and Group competitions will have an entry fee for both disciplines.
