DEAR FLIPTASTIC! FAMILIES:
We hope that all of our gym families are staying safe and healthy. In the meantime, we would like to share with you some of the things we are doing to be prepared to meet physical distancing requirements and to maintain high cleanliness standards. As always, the health and well being of our customers, students and staff will be our first priority.
*Staff will follow illness policy including temperature checks at the beginning of each shift and 24 hour wellness standards.
*The gym will supply and be responsible for cleaning and sanitizing of masks worn by our coaches. Staff will adhere to PPE requirements set by the Ohio Department of Health.
PRIOR TO CLASS:
*While in the viewing area, masks are required at this time.
*In order to adhere to physical distancing requirements, the viewing area will be limited. Therefore, only one parent or guardian will be allowed to enter the building with their child. Siblings not participating in class will not be allowed in the viewing area. We are encouraging drop off and pick up of students that are ages 6 years and older.
*We installed webcam viewing which will allow parents or guardians to view class on their phones or tablets from their car, home or other location. Detailed information is available at the gym.
*We will be staggering class start and end times to allow students to get in and out of the building safely, as well as allow staff to wipe down necessary equipment and wash their hands between each class.
*Gymnasts are not required to wear masks, but may do so.
*Parent/child classes have been reduced to 4 students per class to help maintain physical distancing in the Tumble Jungle. Intermediate classes will be limited to 8 per class. All other preschool and recreational classes will maintain their 6 per class ratio. Tumbling classes will maintain a 6 to 1 student to instructor ratio.
*Lesson plans have been modified to limit spotting and physical contact with the coach and gymnasts. We have omitted partner activities and will limit the use of props.
*Stations and activities will be modified to allow for safe distancing; there will be no waiting in line in preschool, vault and trampoline. Beam lesson plans will be modified to allow gymnasts appropriate distance while on that event.
*Stations will be wiped down between groups.
*Drinking fountains will remain closed. Gymnasts are encouraged to bring their own water bottle with their name clearly on it.
