*If you paid for the Spring Session, and did not participate in our Summer Session, a full credit has been applied to your account.
*ALL GYMNASTS AND PARENTS MUST WEAR A MASK ON THE PREMISES.* Gymnasts will be allowed to remove their mask when their class begins. They should wait for the instructions from their coach. When class ends, they must put on the mask again.
Female gymnasts will need to wear a leotard with or without tight-fitting shorts, they should not wear anything that bares their midriff, and male gymnasts will need to wear athletic shorts and a t-shirt that can be tucked in.
The "New Normal" at the Gym The health and wellbeing of our gymnasts and the communities in which they live are of the utmost importance to all of us here at Ingrid's Gymnastics. For re-opening, the following guidelines from USA Gymnastics will be implemented:
We are continuing to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting the gym to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as we navigate forward in this unprecedented time. We are cleaning every day, before, after and during each class.
Classes will be scheduled to minimize the number of people in the gym at any given time. We will stagger the start of classes, so that there are fewer children and families arriving and leaving at one time. Classes will be smaller than before to ensure we can maintain distancing at each event.
Only one gymnast/family will be allowed to enter at a time. Those waiting to enter should maintain a 6-foot distance from each other. All gymnasts and any parents who come into the building to drop off their child will be checked with a touchless thermometer upon arrival. Any gymnast with a fever will not be allowed to participate in class that day, and she will need to be picked up immediately. Any parent with a fever will be asked to leave immediately with their gymnast. Gymnasts will be allowed to return to class after they have been fever-free for at least 48 hours.
Parents, guardians or siblings will not be allowed to watch their gymnasts from inside the gym at this time. You will need to either wait in the car for the duration of class, or you can leave and come back. We will have some seating outside the office and outside the Pre-K room at the back (weather permitting) where parents may sit, as long as they follow social distancing guidelines.
Gymnasts will be required to wash/sanitize their hands before beginning class.
We will require that each gymnast bring their own backpack, clearly marked with their name. In their backpack, they should have hand sanitizer or hand soap, a clearly marked water bottle, socks, a face mask and a small towel. *PLEASE NOTE: The water fountains will not be functional during this time.*
Each class will have a specific area to keep their backpacks during class. Their things should be clearly marked on the outside with their name, so there is no confusion between them and their classmates.
During class, gymnasts must maintain a 6-foot distance from their teammates at all times. Distances will be clearly marked for the gymnasts. Please remind them of this before practice, and our coaches will continue to remind and enforce throughout practice.
The gymnasts will not be allowed to share equipment. All large equipment will be sanitized after each rotation.
For the safety of our gymnasts, our coaches will continue the practice of spotting. Our coaches will wear face masks, and they will be given the option to wear gloves.
Gymnasts must wear socks. They may wear sticky socks like these, if they wish, and we also have regular socks and small sticky socks available for purchase here at the gym. Unless they have the rubber "sticky" pieces on the bottom, the socks must be taken off for their rotation at beam. Like the other belongings, the socks should be clearly marked.
Parents will have a specific pick-up and drop-off location for their child. Please check the signs outside the building for guidance when you drop off your gymnast.
If you need to meet with Ingrid, your child's coach, or ask the front desk a question, you will need to call ahead to make an appointment. Only one family will be allowed in the office or at the front desk at a time.
Coaches and staff will sanitize the entry and exit areas before and after each practice. They will also wash their hands before and after each class, as well as during water breaks. In addition, all coaches and staff agree to adhere to a 24-hour wellness standard: should they feel fatigued or obtain a fever within 24 hours of a shift, they are required to call out from their shift.
If you, your gymnast or another member of your household are exhibiting any signs of illness, please let us know and stay home. In addition, please let us know if your child begins showing any signs of illness after attending class so we can notify the other gymnasts and coaches with whom she came into contact.
We will be accepting donations of hand sanitizer, hand soap, cleaning products (such as wipes and disinfecting spray) and masks. If you would like a credit to your account for these items, please bring your receipt.
We will be offering private lessons again, but they must be outside of all regular practice and class hours. To set up, please contact the coach directly, if possible.
