Boomerang Program:

  • Gemini has adopted the “Boomerang” program. This is a program where families are asked to bring all their garbage home with them. This includes all packaging, food waste, and diapers.
  • Our facility is not set up to sort organic matter or even recycle as fully as we can at home, the garbage can be disposed of in a more environmentally friendly manner. By initiating a waste-free, boomerang program, we can work together to support the environment. It significantly reduces food and packaging waste. Uneaten food and waste can become a pest hazard. With the Boomerang Program, organic waste can be returned home and added to the household "green bin".

Driving & Parking:

  • Please drive slowly and carefully on Stevenson Road; it is a residential/school area at 40km/hr, and on our road/driveway the speed limit is MAX 20km/hr. If your gymnast is late, please don't worry; safety is of utmost importance for our families!
  • Please follow the direction of the one-way signs coming into the facility.
  • Parking is available in the south lot. If all the spaces in the South lot are full, there is additional parking available in the lot west of our facility (across the road). Please do not park anywhere but in the designated, labelled parking spots.
    • Do not park along the curb or along the fence; it limits visibility and creates dangerous situations for the children and parents coming and going from our facility.
    • Do not park in front of the airport gates.
    • Do not park in handicap spots unless you have a handicap parking permit displayed on your vehicle.
    • There is NO PARKING on the driveway (other than in designated parking spots).

Everyone can help recognize a possible concussion if they know what to look for.

A person with a concussion might have any of the signs or symptoms listed below. They might show up right away or hours, or even days later. Just one sign or symptom is enough to suspect a concussion. Most people with a concussion do not lose consciousness.

About the Concussion Awareness Resources

On July 1, 2019, new rules came into effect through Rowan’s Law, to improve concussion safety in amateur competitive sport.

If you are an athlete under 26 years of age*, parent of an athlete under 18, coach, team trainer or official and your sports organization has advised that you need to follow the rules of Rowan’s Law you need to:

  • review any one of Ontario's official concussion awareness resources before registering or serving with your sport organization
  • review your sports organization’s Concussion Code of Conduct that they will provide to you; and confirm that you have reviewed both of these resources every year with your sports organization(s)

* Exception: A sport organization that is a University, College of Applied Arts and Technology or other Post-Secondary Institution will be advising athletes of any age that they need to follow the rules of Rowan’s Law.

 If you are involved in more than one sport

No matter how many sports organizations you register within a given year, you are only required to review a concussion awareness resource once within that year. You are however required to confirm your review of a Concussion Awareness

Resource with each sports organization with which you register.

You are also required to both review and confirm your review of the Concussion Code of Conduct for each sports organization with which you register.

Additional rules will come into effect on July 1, 2020, that require sports organizations to put into place Removal-from-Sport and Return-to-Sport protocols, to improve concussion safety. You may wish to follow-up with your sports organization about their plans for implementing their protocols.

Concussion Awareness Resources for you to review

Under Rowan’s Law, if your sports organization has requested it, you are required to review one format each year. All three formats contain similar information. Choose the format that suits your learning style. Currently, only the e-booklet is available for your review.

Government of Ontario Concussion Awareness Resource E-Booklet

This e-booklet will help you learn more about concussions so you can keep yourself and others active and safe — whether you’re an athlete, student, parent, coach, official or educator.

You can download and print a copy for reference.
