EKGA's online class platform has been launched
We hope you and your families are safe and healthy during this time of great uncertainty around the world. Strangest school holidays ever!
As a small business, it’s been hugely challenging to figure out how to best serve our customers and look after our staff. We are trying to turn lemons into lemonade, but it is taking some doing! I am so lucky to have so many talented and dedicated people working with me at EKGA to help us through this and return to being EKGA Awesome.
We’ve purchased a virtual platform and are building amazing programming for your child to do at home. We’ve come up with a solution so your children will still be able to work on their skills AND connect with their coaches, on a weekly basis (even more frequently for children that regularly have multiple training sessions per week).
We’re excited to announce starting next week we’ll be having VIRTUAL classes! There will be both Interactive and pre-recorded content that your child will be able to enjoy and benefit from. Not only that, but as current EKGA members you will also have access to ALL of the classes, not just your regular classes. If you have a brother or sister who is not in an EKGA class, they can do classes too! We will have Kinder Gym classes, Ninja Zone classes, Beginner and Levels Classes, Trampoline programs and Competitive Squad training.
Classes will all be based on the assumption you have minimal or NO equipment at home - we don’t expect you to have a house full of gym equipment!
We will continue to add more and more content to the platform potentially including assignments, video feedback, live interactive video rooms with all your friends, gymnastics education and more! By using this platform (rather than allowing the kids to randomly search Youtube) we can make sure we are upholding our key goals of Making it FUN, Teaching GYMNASTICS and keeping the kids SAFE.
Obviously this has had an initial cost outlay for EKGA and will have ongoing staffing and technology costs involved, so it can’t be free for everyone. This “no additional cost arrangement” is for the month of April only. Should the situation continue into May (or beyond) there will be a small monthly fee to access the platform.
Email email@example.com for YOUR link to the online content system.
There is one link per family. Please only create one log in per family.
Please do not share the link. Have other friends / families contact us for access.
You do not need to do anything in the billing section – that is taken care of by us.
Please bookmark the landing page for easy access. Here is a 2-minute tutorial for you to see how it will work: PARENT TUTORIAL VIDEO
Please remember we have made a promise to make sure you get the number of face to face, in the gym classes you have prepaid for. How long we are forced to stay closed for will impact the total number of classes to be delivered and reconciled in 2020. We are not 100% clear on this, with so many things outside our control but possibilities include classes operating throughout July and September Holidays, Optional Sunday classes, operating for longer in term four, finishing up Direct Debit payments earlier in November / December than usual.
In addition to our online platform, we will also be making Private Lessons available for EKGA members that fall into category 1 or 2 or 3 with the following pricing:
· Private lesson 30 minutes $20.00 per class
· Block of 5 x 30 minute private lessons $80
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to express interest in booking private lessons.
As always, thank you for supporting EKGA, staff and myself. We will get through this challenging time with the support of the EKGA community. We’re excited for this opportunity to continue to Teach Gymnastics, Make it Fun and Keep the kids Safe.
