Goodbye for Now Keiran!

Last week, RGC had to say “goodbye for now” to Keiran Crouch, a highly accomplished gymnast and outstanding coach from Canada, with whom we had the pleasure to work alongside over the last 5 months. On behalf of us all in RGC, the Team and Gymnasts, thank you again Keiran! You will be missed, at least until we see you in Galway again! 20170322_200754IMG_8600IMG_8601

RGC Board Level Opportunities – 2017

 

RGC’s move to a new Online Class Management Software

We are pleased to announce that as of this week, RGC has moved  to a new Online Class Management Software called iClassPro.

With implementation of a new software arrive additional positive operational changes such as monthly billing and definition of RGC’s ‘Scheme of Work’ and individual gymnast Levels.

While all our current members are going to learn more about the upcoming changes very soon, we have prepared a short Q&A to assist you with this transition.

WHY DO YOU USE SOFTWARE?

Using software enables us to create and manage classes, track enrollments and manage payments. It makes the day to day tasks of running our club much more efficient.

HOW WILL THIS CHANGE OF SOFTWARE IMPACT ME?

Positively we hope! Once you login to your new member account and become familiar and comfortable navigating it, you will find it very similar to your Gnobeo account with some added features as time goes on. You will be able to update your contact information, add notes regarding your gymnast’s health, view your enrollments and history of bookings and payments as well as request a booking or make a payment using your saved payment information.

IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO DO?

Yes, attempt to re-set your password on the login page of the new parent portal. Should this not work, we haven’t probably transferred your details over yet. You are welcome to create a brand new account or login again in a day or two.

You will be able to access a ‘Parent Portal’ home page by clicking on the following link, please bookmark it in your internet browser for instant access: https://www.iclassprov2.com/parentportal/renmoregymnastics/.

If you booked a summer camp, then you have already created an account and in this case please login and check that your information is up-to-date and all your children are added in the ‘Students’ section.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAD A BALANCE ON MY GNOBEO ACCOUNT?

Whether it was a payment due or a credit note, we carried this over to your new account. Please check your new account information and balance and let us know if you see any inconsistency.

HOW WILL I BE BILLED FOR SUMMER TRAINING ON THIS NEW ACCOUNT?

You will be billed the same way as in Gnobeo, on pay-as-go basis. A charge will appear on your member account at the end of each week for all attended sessions within that week. You will receive a statement of account also to review your charges.

I AM ON YOUR WAITING LIST, IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO DO AND SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT LOSING MY PLACE ON THE WAITING LIST?

You do not need to worry, if your saved availability matched any of our classes and you have therefore been included on a waiting list for a specific class up to the end of July 2017 (you could see the specific classes you have been waiting for by logging into your Gnobeo member account), we have recorded your position on the waiting list and will use this information to offer spaces in the future. If you have created an account in the past but have not been included in any specific class waiting list, we have your details saved and will be in touch as spaces become available in the future.

Thank you for your continuing support and cooperation.

Special thanks to Markus Voetter of MV Photography for capturing the day’s unique atmosphere, energy, happiness and outstanding efforts and accomplishments of all gymnasts. To view all 700 photos, please visit the photo gallery.

We hope you all enjoyed our club competition 2017 and especially hope all our gymnasts had fun and enjoyed the day. Well done to them all they did brilliant. We would like to thank you all for your support of the event – entering your children and buying spectator tickets. Many thanks for your support on the day also with admissions, our Raffle, Goodie stand and much more. It was a great success.

We could not have undertaken to run the event without so many parents getting behind us and helping out in so many ways – to Paul Fitzgerald for the use of a huge truck, Dave Duffy for his van, to DXC Technology for all the printing, to the ladies and gymnasts who helped out on the door, the merchandise stands etc on the day. To all of you who baked such lovely buns and cakes and those of you who donated so many great raffle prizes. To all who helped move equipment from the gym and back again – a hard task, to the Rowing club lads and ladies without who we would not have managed the move, to Alma for your back up behind the scenes. to Jacinta who sorted us with vouchers for pizzas in Supermacs, to Terry the taxi man! To Brian for your work all day on the sound system. To the civil defense team who sat there all day and made sure all our first aid problems were sorted quickly.

To our wonderful coaches who gave up the day to ensure it all ran smoothly and looked after all the gymnasts so well.

This really was a team effort and we really appreciate the help we got from you all. Many thanks and have a great summer.
