DEAR FLIPTASTIC! FAMILIES:
We hope that all of our gym families are staying safe and healthy. We look forward to reconnecting with everyone and are optimistic that we will be able to reopen to cartwheel again soon. 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 encouraged but not 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 are installing 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 on on-line viewing will be released as we draw closer to an opening date.
*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 and tumbling classes will be limited to 8 per class. All other preschool and recreational classes will maintain their 6 per class 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.
We at Fliptastic! look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we are permitted to do so. Once we have a confirmed opening date, we will post our updated summer class schedule. If you were registered and paid for the Spring Session, you have a credit you can use for the summer session or any future session.
