COVID Guidelines

Please make sure to update your information on our online registration page.  Login and and check all contact information and updated policies.
ALL ATHLETES

We are excited to welcome everyone back to the gym.

We will begin our gradual reopening around July 1st, or when the state has deemed its safe to do so and our facility is ready.

Following USA Gymnastics Guidelines, we will open in phases, beginning with our team programs and gradually adding classes over time. 

Please review our new guidelines, policies and procedures put in place to keep our athletes, coaches, and families safe.  Please sign our updated policies and procedures form found on your online account for class registration.

Please be aware that class sizes will be smaller to adhere to capacity limits.  Class times may change, and some classes may not be offered at this time.

General

Please review the importance of social distancing and everyone’s role and helping to stop the spread of illness.

Do not send your athlete to class if he/she has any signs or symptoms of illness.

Coaches will be required to stay home if they have any signs or symptoms of illness.

Anyone entering the building must be wearing a face covering.

Athletes will be required to wear a face covering.  Please be prepared to provide one for your child.  Make sure that it will remain secure during all aspects of a gymnastics class.

Athletes are asked to maintain social distancing upon entering and leaving facility.  Do not enter/leave in groups.

Everyone must sanitize hands upon entering the building.

Drop off/ Pickup is preferred during this time.  Only one parent per athlete is allowed in the gym.  There will be limited seating available.  Parents must wear face coverings and maintain 6 feet social distancing.

During Class

Stations will be spaced 6 feet apart.

Athletes will be required to sanitize hands before and after each rotation.

Provide your athlete with their own water bottle.  Water fountain will be available for FILLING BOTTLES ONLY.

Coaching

Coaches will be required to wear a face covering.

Coaches will sanitize hands frequently, before and after each rotation and anytime contact with an athlete occurs.

Coaches will be allowed to “hands on” spot to protect an athlete from injury, or guide in learning a new skill.  This will be kept to a minimum.  Alternative coaching methods will be used.

Building Safety

All high contact areas will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each class.

Hand sanitizer will be available at entry door and throughout the gym.

All low contact areas will be cleaned and sanitized daily.

Please consider contactless payments.  Online payment is available on our website.  Cash and checks will still be accepted.


TEAM MEMBERS ONLY

We have put together new Team Member Guidelines to assist you in preparing to come back to the gym.  These guidelines are in addition to the new policies and procedures outlined for all BG members.

Team members will be placed in small groups.  Practice schedules and groups will be available in the coming weeks.  Upper Level Team Members can expect to start first.  We will gradually add more groups over the course of several weeks.  Please be patient as this is all new to everyone.  We want to make sure the policies and procedures we have put in place are appropriate and safe for our athletes in our facility. 

Please be aware, there will be limited space and time for parents to watch practice.    


There will be absolutely no sharing of any personal items.

Items to include in Gym Bag

All Team Members will be required to have their own personal gym bag.  Gym bags will travel with the gymnast to each event and should contain all necessary items for practice.

Chalk, small storage container and water spray bottle.  There will be no “community” chalk bucket.  Each team member must have their own chalk container.
