We humbly ask for your patience as we navigate our new normal. We realize that our current situation is fluid and as a result we are expecting to make changes to our plan as needed.
While we cannot open to the public and simultaneously prevent 100% of all germs from spreading, we are proud and confident in the policies and procedures that meet or exceed all recommendations and guidelines.
Maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all of our students and families is going to take work and cooperation from our employees, athletes and parents. We need every family to do their part to practice good hygiene and follow our guidelines and procedures. We ask for your patience and support during this challenging time.
We will maintain all social distancing guidelines, as we are allowed more children into the gym.
Please have your child use the restroom and wash their hands prior to leaving home.
No touch rule is in effect. No high fives, huddles or close contact occurring before, during and after classes.
If a child needs a spot the coach will be wearing a mask. . Our number one concern remains your children’s safety.
Coaches and children will be using hand sanitizer before each rotation (event).

Self evaluate your family before coming to the gym. If your child is sick or anyone in your family has been exposed to COVID-19 DO NOT BRING THEM TO THE GYM. We have a very flexible make up schedule and would be happy to see them when they are feeling better.
Anyone exhibiting symptoms will be asked to leave the facility.
Please do not arrive more than 5 -10 minutes early. Be prompt for pick-up.
We ask your child to wear his/her mask into and out of the building. They will not wear them during class as we feel it is a safety hazard.

Everything about this disease, it’s spread, guidelines, social responses, the needs of our families, community and the financial environment have been in a constant flux. Our plan and procedures for how we address all of these things must be adaptable, purposeful and effective. In order to be all of these things, we must continue to evaluate our policies and procedures, seek out new and sound information and adjust our responses accordingly.
