Whether you’re a first-timer or a returning student, we welcome you to enjoy your training and time spent at AcroSports.

Letter from the Executive Director

AcroSports has always been a major advocate for safety in the programs we offer to the community, and we have chosen to use this down time to make upgrades to our facility that will further support that focus. All of the renovations we've completed in the gym during this closure are real "Wow Factor" items that you will certainly notice right away upon returning to AcroSports!

AcroSports Reopening Update

The City of San Francisco has authorized the reopening of indoor fitness facilities as of this week, and a number of people have contacted us to see if AcroSports will be among those resuming programming.

Building Updates From the Executive Director

AcroSports has always been a major advocate for safety in the programs we offer to the community, and we have chosen to use this down time to make upgrades to our facility that will further support that focus. All of the renovations we've completed in the gym during this closure are real "Wow Factor" items that you will certainly notice right away upon returning to AcroSports!

Update on AcroSports’ Reopening – September 2020

I hope all our Acro family and friends are doing as well as can be expected during this wildly unpredictable time! Here at AcroSports, we are continually wondering how it can be that Friday, March 13th - the day we officially closed programming - simultaneously seems like only yesterday, and also a vast eternity ago.

PPP Loan Report

AcroSports was fortunate to receive a PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loan in mid-April. A component of the CARES Act passed by Congress, the PPP loans are fully “forgivable,” as long as their expenditure falls within certain parameters, with the emphasis being to employ as many people as possible, thus lessening the burden of the growing rolls of people on Unemployment. Your tax dollars at work!

August 2020 Zipline

Since closing our doors on March 13th, we have received an unprecedented amount of support from the AcroSports community! Many thanks to all of you who have given donations of both cash and existing class credit; this has made a significant impact on our ability to reopen, as well as our continued viability as a business overall.

Important Update Regarding Use of Class Credits Upon our Reopening

Many families currently have AcroSports class credit on file, both as a result of our COVID-related closure, as well as existing account credits from prior to the pandemic. Many thanks to all our students and families who were able to receive account credits instead of cash refunds due to the shutdown, as this has significantly helped to ensure our ability to reopen.

AcroSports and COVID-19

I hope that you and your families are safe and well during one of the worst pandemics in history. Along with the rest of the AcroSports staff, I for one am eagerly looking forward to the day when our gym becomes alive again.

Sweet Letters

I almost forgot about these sweet letters. I was rummaging through one of my drawers at home and stumbled upon a pile of notes from some of my former AcroSports students. I reread them. And then, I smiled.
