There is also a minimum number of classes per week that all competitive skaters need to attend. These vary for each category.
Fees for recreational skaters will be payable per term, while for intermediate and advanced skaters they can be paid monthly.
Please do not forget to include €25 for membership and insurance in your first month/term fees.

Just a reminder that we are closed for one more week. Classes resume on 5th August as per normal summer timetable.
(Message for competitive classes only)
Training will continue as normal until 16th July and will subsequently resume on 5th August.
After the World Open there will be no training for competitive classes for two weeks. However, if any skater is interested in practice sessions during this time, it might be possible to accomodate them by previous arrangement, subject to availability of supervisors.
Fees for the month of July are 50% of normal monthly fees. Normal fees will apply in August.
For skaters paying per term, the summer term fees are 1/3 of the 5-month term ones (7 weeks versus 21).

Rebel Acro, a group of gymnasts from Ballincollig Gymnastics Club, are in the finals of Ireland’s Got Talent this Sunday evening.
One of our coaches, who is also a gymnast, is in the group, and we are very proud of everything that they have achieved so far.
We would ask that you would consider voting for them on Sunday evening, as we have no doubts as to their real talent!
Thank you so much!
