On this page, we provide answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding our procedures for COVID-19. If you have further questions regarding our procedures, please contact Coach Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in reading the complete set of guidelines applicable to our facility, we follow the Connecticut state Sector Rules for the Reopening of Sports Clubs and Fitness Complexes, which are published here in addition to the November 9, 2020 Guidance for the Operation of Interscholastic, Youth, and other Amateur Sport Activities published here.
What are the procedures for entering and leaving the facility? Please do not allow your child to enter the facility if they are not feeling well or are experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms. Please arrive to your child's class approximately 5 minutes before the class starts, and drop your child off near the entrance. Please have your child wear a mask and bring their own water bottle. Children will wear masks and use hand sanitizer when entering the facility. We ask that you not enter the facility with your child unless you need to use the restroom or in case you want to watch for a limited time. If you enter the facility, you must wear a mask. Per the Connecticut state requirements for amateur sports activities, as of November 9, 2020, your child will be required to keep their mask on throughout the entire gymnastics class (this rule does not apply to toddlers in parent and tot classes - parents may choose to have their toddler wear a mask or not). Please be on time when picking your child up from class.
What happens if my child doesn't feel well during their class? If your child starts to feel unwell during their class, we will call you to pick them up. Please keep your phones on so that we can reach you.
Will my child wear a mask? Yes, as of November 9, 2020, the state of Connecticut requires that all children (other than toddlers under the age of 3 in our parent and tot classes) wear a mask for the duration of their gymnastics class.
Will the coaches wear masks? Coaches wear masks while they are coaching.
Do the coaches spot the children? Yes, our coaches do spot the children. Remember, the coaches wear masks!
How do you social distance? We have limited the number of classes and the number of children in each class in order to abide by the Connecticut sector rules for Sports Clubs and Fitness Complexes. We keep the children at least 6 feet apart while they are inside the facility. Coaches wear masks while working with your children.
What are your cleaning procedures? Each child who enters the facility is required to use hand sanitizer before entering the facility and before leaving the facility. We have 9 hand sanitizing stations throughout the gym. The equipment is cleaned throughout the day as required by the Connecticut sector rules. We clean all equipment and mats at the end of each day.
How do you clean the foam pit? The foam pits are covered and unfortunately, they are not available during this time.
Can I watch my child while he or she is practicing? We would prefer that you watch your child from the outside windows. Unfortunately, the waiting area cannot be open at this time. We have made significant upgrades to our wifi, so you should be able to access the web anywhere in the parking lot. If you do decide to watch your child from inside the facility, you are required to wear a mask, and we can only have one parent in the lobby at a time. Because of this limitation, we ask that you be mindful of other parents who may want to watch their child in the gym, and please keep your time in the lobby limited to 10 minutes.
