Horley venue to change
After 15 years at the Keys Centre, we are moving most of the Horley classes to Oakwood Sports Centre from 12th October. This is in order to secure the long term future of the Horley classes because of the uncertainty as to what will happen with the Keys building in the future. All of you who attend classes at the Keys should have had a letter informing you of your new class time. (If it has changed.) Please phone us if you have not.
We have applied for Active Surrey club accreditation. This is Surrey County Council's "badge of excellence" which can be awarded to sports clubs who meet all SCC and Sport England good practice requirements. There are three levels of award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. So far only 10 sports clubs in Surrey have achieved bronze and 1 has achieved silver. None have yet gone right through to gold, so this gives us a great challenge. We are applying for accreditation to cover the whole Saturn V association; i.e. all venues and all activities from special needs through to advanced mainstream. The council expect us to achieve bronze accreditation by the end of the year.
Members' satisfaction survey
Congratulations to our coach Sefra Crilly who achieved the highest overall score in the September members' satisfaction survey. She scored an impressive average score of 8.92 out of 10.
Rebecca has had her baby!
Rebecca Pinto (ne Plaw) who coached trampolining and gymnastics for many years for Saturn V has had her baby.
Stacey Rodd passed the trampoline coach course in September. Stacey is now fully qualified to teach both gymnastics and trampolining. Congratulations to her.
Adam Reynolds and Sefra Crilly are both in the middle of the advanced trampoline coaching course. Good luck to them
Gymnastic class displays
The third gymnastic class displays will be held in December. The Monday displays will be on 11th December, Wednesday displays on 13th December and Friday displays on 15th December. Parents are invited to watch. The purpose of the displays is to give parents an opportunity to see what their children are learning in their classes. It also gives children who would not normally want to take part in competitions an opportunity to perform in front of an audience without the pressure of a formal event. A medal is awarded in each class to the child who, in the opinion of the coaches, has made the most progress in gymnastics since the last display.
