It is a very challenging time for all, as we balance our lives, government regulations, safety and social responsibilities of Excel Gymnastics for you as our valued members. Our current circumstances only call for adaptability – strength and unity! We know this pandemic has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in sports can be a healthy way to cope with stress. It has been a difficult few months and we are looking forward to slowly re-opening. Our students/families and employees are our top priority. We remain deeply committed to the safety and health of our valued customers, teams and communities during our reopening and our planned opening date is July 14th, 2020.
Based on national, state, and local guidelines concerning COVID-19,
Excel gymnastics believes it is now possible with proper modifications and low occupancy levels for gymnasts to return to Gymnastics safely. Our goal is to gain the physical and mental benefits of Gymnastics while maintaining a safe training environment for our staff and you gymnast. With the size of our facility and adherence to our new protocols, we feel this is an attainable goal. You’re a gymnast and Her/his well being are of utmost importance to Excel.
The following are steps we plan to employ to protect our gymnast, their families as well as our staff and their families:
We will have zero tolerance for any illness. Gymnast and their families must be symptom-free. You’re a gymnast must not have a runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea to attend class.
While at Excel, if a gymnast develops any of those symptoms, she must cover her nose and mouth with a mask/face covering and wait in the designated area until a parent/guardian is called and arrives to pick up the gymnasts .
Contact your doctor concerning flu -like symptoms to determine if your child should test for COVID-19. Symptoms for corona virus for vest from “flu-like” to gastrointestinal issues.” DO NOT SEND YOUR GYMNAST TO CLASS IF SHE/HE OR ANYONE IN YOUR FAMILY HAS FLU OR COVID-19 SYMPTOMS!
If your gymnast has any illness(confirmed by her/his doctor) other than COVID-19, she/he must be symptom-free and fever-free for 24 hours. Fever-free means no fever for 24 hours while not using a fever reducer such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
If your gymnast has allergies or asthma, you will need to let us know on an event by event basis. If you have not informed us, we will assume she/he is ill and seclude her/him until we can contact you.
If anyone in your family living in your house test positive for COVID-19, your gymnast must wait at least 14 days and conform to the latest health department guidelines to start a resume class, or show proof of a negative test result and then they can return without waiting 14 days. The same rules apply to coaches and staff.
