Being a non-for-profit, revenue generated from registration fees, special events (like our annual Tumblers Classic Competition), and other activities cover the Centre’s operating costs. Simply put, our non-for-profit title makes it difficult for us to accumulate any financial reserve. Needless to say, like many other businesses in the area, the recent Covid-19 situation has put us in financial hardship. Having been forced to close our doors as of March 15th due to the evolving Covid-19 situation, we offered credits to our members for the remainder of the winter session, our March break camp, and our spring session.
Although we were able to participate in some of the government's initiatives for non-profits during these unprecedented times, the loans will need to be paid back, and we continue to experience other operational costs while bringing in very little income. To make matters worse, once we can return to business as usual, the financial impact of the situation will continue to be felt as we will be offering our services through credits for the majority of our members, while having to pay full operational costs in addition to adapting our programs to respect Gymnastics Ontario and Health Canada's guidelines. This will be a very difficult year for Tumblers Gymnastics Center, but like our athletes, our wonderful staff and board of directors refuse to give up!
We have always been dedicated to providing the Orleans community with the opportunity to discover, explore and embrace the sport of gymnastics in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. We are now reaching out to you for help.
Our competitive, recreational and special programming offer our young athletes the opportunity to build confidence, grow strong bodies and minds, and develop lifelong friendships and important life skills. We thank you for your support in these difficult times. Closing our doors would be a tremendous loss to our athletes, who often come to see Tumblers as their second home, our staff, and most importantly the Orleans community.
