IFAGG President`s greetings

15.1.2021

Dear members of the IFAGG family,

At the beginning of 2020, we could not imagine that our lives would change in so many ways. The Covid-19 crisis has a huge impact on public health, business, and social life globally. The far-reaching consequences have also been felt strongly in the AGG community. Nevertheless, we have seen how important sport is for physical and mental well-being.

You`ve been keeping on distance trainings via digital apps and make it possible to continue AGG at homes. It is still challenging times, and I am so proud of you how you have been tackling problems and you have found creative solutions with new techniques to practice AGG. Most of all it makes me happy how you`ve been working for positive AGG spirit in these particular times.

Currently, many IFAGG events are re-scheduled for calendar after the cancellation due to pandemic. Mindful of the health and safety concerns but also the need to offer athletes and their teams international competitions, the IFAGG, its members are doing their utmost to stage planned IFAGG events safely.

We also keep expanding the learning via webinars like we already had for our judges. Latest IFAGG have been started virtual competition tests. We aim to organize IFAGG sanctioned (live) virtual competitions and work on a solid track record of successful tests. These developments are not only helpful during the ongoing pandemic but also in the long run.

At this challenging time, we must be united because of the passion for our beautiful sport of AGG and the focus on getting back to the competitions and trainings when it is safe and possible to do so. We are looking forward to watching the inspiring performances of AGG teams around the world again.

IFAGG has published preliminary main competition calendar for 2021 in October 2020. The circumstances with Covid-19 might differ from country to country. We will continue to actively work to monitor and assess the situation together with LOCs. If coming changes we will communicate updates to you. This unfortune exceptional situation continues, and we hope IFAGG and its members can survive it with minor damage. We are waiting for light in the future and I am looking forward to meeting the AGG family again!

With my warmest regards,

Tatiana Miroshnychenko
IFAGG President
