Rotherham Sports Acro Club – further update 25 October

Statement sent for and on behalf of the Rotherham Sports Acro Club Management Committee

To all members

As you may be aware a number of our senior coaches have decided to leave Rotherham Sports Acro Club immediately after the Yorkshire Championships (5/6th November 2016). Whilst this will affect how the club is organised we will continue to provide gymnastics for everyone who wishes to continue as a member of our club. We know that it has been confusing for some members not knowing what is happening but unfortunately gymnasts have been told directly which coaches are leaving without the committee being informed making it challenging for us to send you reliable information as quickly as we would have liked.

It might be different in the very short term, but Rotherham Sports Acro Club will continue to provide high quality coaching in an open, inclusive environment, encouraging all gymnasts to reach their individual potential, personally and as a gymnast.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a committee member (Caroline Barnard, Carol Davies, Andrea Hansel-Hides, Gail Kershaw, Jenny Lau, Laura Marshall, Alison Proctor, Mark Roberts) or contact us via the Club email

As you may be aware the Facebook page “Rotherham Sports Acro Stars of the Past”, which has been used for communication by some members, has never been an official method of communication with the Club. For the time being please use the above email address to contact the Club which is monitored by all members of the Club Management Committee.

We apologise that there has been some delay in sending this message by email, but we have been made aware that there is currently an issue sending blind copy emails from a Hotmail account. We understand that Microsoft are investigating and hope that it will be resolved shortly.

We have started to use the website more actively so, as well as emailing, any statements of this nature will also be posted on the website to keep members informed of developments. The website address is

We are aware that you need to know exactly what sessions will be run and when. It is our intention that the competition squad training will continue as normal, but we expect to finalise arrangements in the next few days and as soon as it is sorted out, we will let you know.

Thank you
