Reopening of Gold Medal Gymnastics, Inc.

With Phase 1 in effect for June, we are opening up the gym to our team for limited use, to test out how our new guidelines will work. If things go well, we can begin classes perhaps later on during the month of June.

The Gym:

  • When rec classes resume, class times will be adjusted to allow for cleaning between classes
  • All shared props are removed for the time being
  • All high-touch areas and equipment are wiped down after each station rotation and after each class with cleaners effective against COVID-19
  • Gym is cleaned and also sanitized each evening with an Aquafog Atomizer™ using a hospital grade disinfectant (Peroxy HDox)
  • The drinking fountain is closed; students are required to bring their own water bottles
  • The party room/waiting room is closed, temporarily
  • The team room is closed, temporarily
  • All adults must wear masks
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided, both in the lobby and by each event, and the bathrooms will be monitored to make certain the soap dispensers are filled

Employees:

  • Employees must adhere to guidelines for wellness, including temperature checks
  • Employees shall sanitize or wash their hands before and after each class
  • Employees shall wear masks
  • Coaches shall limit their physical contact with students, however for safety some spotting will always be necessary
  • Coaches shall enforce physical distancing between students

Pick up and drop off:

  • An employee shall be stationed at the front door for both drop off of students and pick up afterwards
  • Please arrive on time for class, but no more than five minutes beforehand
  • Parents are asked to wait in your cars until given notice it is time let your children enter for their class
  • If your child is over five years of age, parents/guardians are not allowed to stay; your child can be picked up after class
  • Students temperatures will be checked upon arrival; any student with a temperature of 99.5 or higher or appears to be ill shall be sent home
  • Students required to sanitize or wash hands before and after class
  • Parents entering the building must sanitize their hands

Classes:

  • Non-porous markers shall be used to help with safe distancing, and shall be sanitized between classes
  • The chalk buckets will not be used. Each team girl will be given their own chalk and a container for it
  • Grips are to be kept in a sealed plastic bag with the gymnast’s name on it when not in use and shall stored in their personal bag
  • Students will sanitize their hands after each event rotation

Due to COVID-19, we have generated a new release form which must be signed by all new and returning families.
