With the COVID-19 constraints all classes are now suspended until after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend at the earliest. We will continue to review the situation and we will then confirm whether we are able to resume classes or need to continue the suspension for a longer period. Further updates will be posted on the club website, Facebook page and communicated via email.
We are starting to develop a set of online training resources for Bluewave members and will make these available through the club website, www.bluewave.org.uk. You will need to login to your account to access these. If you do not know your username or password just send us an email and we will reset them for you. We hope these will support you in continuing some of your training at home.
We will look to resume regular training as soon as possible even if that continues to require adjustments to activities and an amended schedule. Once training resumes we will be providing additional opportunities for catch-up sessions.
If you need to suspend your training fees please contact your bank to suspend your standing order. As training fees are paid by standing order and not direct debit, unfortunately we are not able to do this for you. If you are in a position to continue to pay fees this would be really appreciated by the club. We are a not-for-profit club, and all our instructors are volunteers, but as it stands at the moment we do still need to pay the lease on our facility at Vickers Business Centre, though we are investigating options that may be available to us. Any fees that we receive during this period will help us be in a stronger position to be able to resume classes when the current restrictions are lifted.
We have had many messages of support from members and parents, this means a lot to the instructing team. The next few weeks and months will be very challenging for everyone and so we thank you for your continued support for Bluewave and look forward to having everyone back training together as soon as we can.

We also now have vacancies in both of KickStars classes, Fridays 5.30-6.15pm and Saturdays 9.30-10.30am. So please do let your friends and family know!
End to another fun year of training. We had a great turn out from across all ages and classes, with over 40 people at the final end of year training. Especially pleasing to see the turn out from the family class, with most of the regular attendees making it!
Following the hard training, we also a time to relax over some food and drink, discuss 2019 and look forward to how we continue to develop Bluewave into 2020 and beyond.
We hope everyone has a relaxing Christmas and New Year, and look forward to see you all in 2020.
Congratulations to the students who were promoted following the November grading. Well done! Next kup grading will be on Sunday 15th March 2020.
