Despite being closed for most programming over the past year, AcroSports has not been sitting idle! Much effort has gone into the preparations necessary to safely reinstitute group classes and camps, which we will implement in a phased and cautious manner in order to ensure maximum COVID safety.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Dearest Patrons, you better believe that you are sorely missed! Every shining face, every new skill learned or attempted is the true joy to our lives as coaches… and we miss every one of you. We consider you all a part of our Acrosports family and truly care about how you are all doing during …
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.
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.
