Covid Procedures in the Gym 

Class size: 

We are trying to limit our classes to no more than 10 students in a class.  Parent-tot classes (Bitty Bugs/Baby Bugs) will be capped at 4-6 students to allow parents to attend class with their child.  Only one parent per child until further notice.  

Warm-ups: 

Recreational gymnasts will be broken into groups with no more than 10 kids in a particular area at a time while doing our best to keep each kid 6 feet apart at all times.  Gymnasts will warm up in various areas of the facility, and designated waiting areas are established by each coach.  

 

Individual Events:  

There will be no more than 10 students at an event and each will be spread out to have her own balance beam, bar station, etc.  We will attempt to rotate so that at least two stations are open at a time (to dry and alternate use).  There will be sanitizing area of the gym, gymnasts will be required to help sanitize their station/piece of equipment.  Gymnasts will help wipe down/sanitize equipment after their event has concluded, coaches will instruct when it is safe to do so.  In addition, gymnasts will be asked to wash their hands/use hand sanitizer upon rotating to another event/station/etc.  

 

Water:  

Students MUST have their own water bottles.  Water will be available for purchase if gymnasts forget and will be charged $1.00 to the family account.

Wildcard does not have drinking fountains available for use or refill at this time regardless of personal presences.

Washing Hands:  

Students will be encouraged to wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer at every stations change and drink break.  Sanitizer stations will be set up around the gym.  Coaches will do their best to enforce each student to wash their hands after each event and to reiterate personal space to the children in order to do our best to social distance

 

Masks:  

Masks will be worn by all parents, siblings, athlete participates at all times when in the facility.  Spotting will be done only when necessary for the safety of the gymnast, coach will sanitize before and after spotting each child.    

 

Apparel:  

Gymnasts should be dressed in their leotards, ready for practice. We encourage gymnasts to leave all other clothing with parents in the car as not to clutter or bring in outside germs.  All team gymnasts should have their grips, personal tape and a labeled box (closable tupperware container) with their names on it for chalk.   After that, additional chalk will be available for purchase for $5 a block. 

Ventilation: 

Dock doors will be open during all practice times (except in inclement weather) to help ensure active air flow throughout the gym. 

 

Drop Off:  

Parents are asked to bring their gymnasts to the front desk and wait until the gymnast’s temperature has been tested and he/she is checked in and allowed to enter the building.   We ask that all parents wear masks in common areas and sanitize when entering the facility.  Seating will be reduced to approximately 50% capacity allowing for chairs to be 6 feet apart in the two viewing rooms.  Please, no food in the viewings area and if you bring a drink, please dispose of it when you are done. 

Between Class Procedures:  

Coaches will be helping to sanitize equipment, common areas, and themselves between each group of kids entering the gym.

 

Nightly Procedures:  

Coaches and gymnasts will help sanitize the equipment and common areas that are used each day.  The gym will be sprayed nightly with disinfectant and cleaned diligently by staff and management.
