by Yard Athletics – June 2nd, 2020
We owe you an apology.
To be honest, we have been wrapped up in our renovation and re-opening. We are so excited to offer you a space where you will feel safe, strong, and supported.
However, that excitement directly reflects our privilege as a white gym owner and white coaches. Our privilege allows us the freedom to decide where to put our focus.
We are still learning and educating ourselves on how to create and hold space for all individuals. We are aware that as a company, we have a lot to learn and improve upon and are open to suggestions and feedback to ensure that all voices are heard.
Yard Athletics understands that actions speak louder than words. All proceeds from our sessions on Saturday, June 6th will be donated to Black Lives Matter (blacklivesmatter.com).
We are also choosing to self mute June 1-7 to #amplifymelanatedvoices.
