DROP OFF/PICK UP
*Your child's coach or a staff member will be standing at the entrance of the gym to help with children getting to and from their cars to eliminate the need for parents to come in the gym to drop off or pick up.
Your child will be asked to keep their personal belongings with them until they place their items in their personal hanging bucket for the duration of their class. Buckets have been placed 6 feet apart. We ask that children bring minimal items to class.
The change room will not be open for use. We ask that your child come prepared for class in their class by already wearing their gym attire. Shoes will be left in the front hallway, however, parents may wish to keep outerwear with them.
LOBBY VIEWING AREA
The lobby area has been closed for eating purposed for our competitive team. The bathroom is in this area and all gymnasts travelling to the washroom must wear a mask to, from, and in the washroom. We will not close viewing for parents, however, we only have space for 4 people at one time to safely watch their children, and will be on a first come first serve basis. We strongly discourage viewing for children ages 5 and up.
All gym gatherings including recreational awards nights, halloween party, christmas party, movie nights, open gym, and Team Competitions will be postponed for the immediate future due to the difficulty in safely keeping physically distant from one another.
If a gymnast feels unwell ....
If a child is found to be unwell during class with suspected symptoms of covid 19 they will be immediately separated from their gym mates, and their parent/guardian, or emergency contact will be informed that they will need to come pick up their child from gym. A staff member will accompany your child at all times while both wear appropriate masks and stay 6 feet apart. Our staff member will ensure your person is made to feel welcome, comfortable while waiting for you to pick them up. We do not wish for them to feel sad, lonely, scared, or ostracised from their peers.
