Salto Gymnastics has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual SGC Invitational March 5th-8th, 2021.
We are devastated to share this news with you; however, we are committed to do our part to help protect our members, members’ families, staff, attendees, and fellow gymnastics clubs. As with any difficult decision, we look to our vision, mission, and values for guidance. We are fully confident we can create and maintain a competition schedule and environment that is safe and healthy for the gymnasts and participants on the competition floor. But we must also consider safety and health of the hundreds of volunteers (our gymnasts’ families) we count on to produce SGC. We must consider every potential addition to the competition environment as we are responsible for it.
We fully understand the gravity of the situation for all the gymnasts who utilize SGC to accelerate their competition performance readiness, the coaches planning their team’s competition schedule and training development in preparation for that schedule, the families looking forward to the SGC experience, and the many business partners that we collaborate with towards the increased exposure that SGC attracts.
We hope that you will plan to take part in SGC next competition season (2021-2022) for a bigger and better one that will include a belated 40th Anniversary celebration for Salto Gymnastics. SGC is an incredibly important event for Salto and it is one of our favorite ways to celebrate all our gymnasts from all our gymnastics clubs. In place of SGC, we are working on other ways for our gymnastics community to get together through a combination of locally hosted events, videos and live streamed content. We encourage you all to support your gymnastics community through smaller, more local events as we plan to as well.
We want to do a special shout out to our annual SGC partners and sponsors. It’s these individuals and companies that have gone above and beyond. They are walking the walk of supporting community and youth and they are rooted in commitment and passion. They are true leaders and need to be recognized for their devotion to our non-profit organization.
