  • The following precautions were taken to help with physical distancing:

    • The TumblTrak was moved away from the wall & additional floor space was added (in main gym).
    • A class vault was removed to allow for more space in the preschool gym.
    • The floor exercise area was torn down, reinforced, and moved slightly to allow for more space.


What we will do once we re-open:

  • The following disinfection & sanitation practices will be done daily:

    • Continue to clean & disinfect mats, blocks, & barrels
    • Continue to clean & disinfect restrooms
    • Continue to clean & disinfect door handles
    • Continue to clean & disinfect all seating areas

 

  • The following disinfection & sanitation practices will be done weekly:
    • UV-C lights used for sterilization (especially near foam pit area)
    • Steaming of balance beams
    • Steaming of bars

 

  • The following precautions will be implemented to help with physical distancing & sanitation:
      • The number of students in the gym at one time will be temporarily reduced to adhere to government regulations. CDC Guidance recommends 50% capacity in the Green phase. We will be around 40%-50%.
        • Class start/end times will stagger to alleviate congestion at the entrance.
        • Cones/markers will be used to help children with distancing.
        • Mats will be placed over the foam pit for easier cleaning.
      Viewing will be restricted to one spectator per child. (The less people viewing, the more kids that can participate. If possible, please consider waiting or watching from outside.)
        • When possible, garage doors and side doors will be open to allow for fresh air circulation.
        • Class structures will allow for sanitation/washing breaks.
        • When possible, children will enter and exit through different doors.
        • Instructors will walk children to their parents who choose to wait outside.
        • Instructors will limit spotting, when possible, keeping your child’s safety a priority.
    • The use of masks:

      • Children are encouraged to wear a mask upon entering & exiting the building.
      • Masks will be worn by staff at the front desk.
      • Masks will NOT be required for coaches & athletes in the gym. This is for their safety! With warm weather & physical exertion, wearing a mask could make breathing difficult and cause over-heating. Also, with possible vision impairments, spotting, grabbing equipment, and simply being upside down with a mask on could lead to injury.
      • You definitely have the option for your child to wear a mask, however, for safety reasons, he/she may not be able to participate fully.

     

    What we need YOU to do once we re-open:

    • Children will be required to purchase or bring their own drinks. Water fountains will be available for bottle refills only.
    • When possible, children should be escorted to the door, but enter the gym alone.
    • Parents who feel comfortable are encouraged to remain out of the gym during their child’s class.
    • All adults entering the gym are encouraged to wear a mask.
    • If staying to watch a class, one spectator per child is permitted.
    • Please allow the previous class to exit the building prior to entering, especially in the ninja gym.
    • If your child is not feeling well, please keep her/him home.
    • Please send your child to the gym with hygiene in mind, especially clean hands & feet.
    • Students will need to wash their hands prior to entering the gym area.
