GELFresco - undercover outdoor training at GESAC

We are very excited to be able to announce the opening of our three Glen Eira Leisure Sites. As these announcements have been made by the State Government with capacity restrictions, we will be opening our sites in stages to allow for staff to regain their qualifications and COVID safe practices to be established to adhere to these new COVID-19 requirements. 

To help train outdoors, two dedicated outdoor undercover areas will be set up in front of GESAC called GELFresco. The classes will commence Wednesday 4 November with a maximum of 10 participants per session, plus the instructor. 

If you are not currently a member you can become a GELFresco member in order to access these classes. GELFresco membership is a $9.95 one off fee which allows you to book into outdoor training sessions. Bookings are not guaranteed and casual prices are applicableClick here to become a GELFresco member.
