Entrance into the gym procedure...

Please have your child's hair pulled up in a tight fitting pony tail before they arrive

Have athlete leave all clothes and unnecessary items in your car


Please take them to the front entrance of either Main or North, and drop them off, an employee will be outside to supervise your child's entrance into the building

You may then drive to park and enter into the viewing area if you choose to watch class

Send your child in wearing shoes, leotard, and MASK, with their personal water bottle and hand sanitizer

             please label all items with your child's name

Your child will enter into the building, place shoes in cubbie, then enter onto the gym floor with their water bottle, mask and personal hand sanitizer

Once on the floor, your child will find an "X", and will take off his or her mask

Your child will remain there until the start of class


Parent Observation

We will have standing/sitting marks in all viewing areas, 6 ft apart


We will provide viewing times for one (1) parent or guardian per family - at this time we cannot allow other siblings to stay and watch


If for some reason there is not a spot available, we will ask that you will please wait in your car

Why no spot TV or other streaming options?

It has been brought to our attention that many families DO NOT want their child's practice streamed into other families homes for multiple reasons. We understand and respect this. We  have come up with this current viewing policy in response to this request and in effort to still allow parents to have access to their child

Practice Procedure and Risk Mitigation Outline 

Coaches will be in masks or face shields as much as possible

Children will be asked to wash hands properly after rotation, and should have their own hand sanitizer with them to use at their discretion, or per your family rules


Coaches will clean using Bioesque in between class times


There is time allotted for disinfecting in between each class time


Coaches will perform a "detailed" clean at the end of each day


Products that include bleach will not be used during training times, as that can be very dangerous to inhale for long periods of time, and especially dangerous to those with asthma or those who have an allergy to bleach

Bleach/harsh products will be used at the completion of each full day

Coaches temperatures will be taken before each practice 

If any child complains of feeling sick throughout practice he or she will be sent home

Class size/Occupancy/Make-up Policy

In the green phase, we have been asked by the governor to operate at 50% occupancy. We are choosing to open at a maximum occupancy of 50% 

All class sizes have been reduced to either 7:1, 6:1, or 4:1


We will be offering make-up times every 2nd Saturday of each month for preschool Ninja and every 3rd Saturday of each month for all other classes. Please call office to schedule (724)772-0055. 

Exiting the gym procedure

Children will again wash their hands, gather their mask, water bottle and hand sanitizer 

Your child will put their mask on before exiting the building 


If you are not in the building, please park and come to the entrance and a coach will dismiss your child.


The USAG has asked us to refrain from unnecessary spotting, therefore, we will be spotting if and when your child absolutely cannot learn or understand the concept without physical help, or if your child could get hurt - this extends to "being there" or "standing in".


Masks while spotting our coaches will reserve the right to remove their mask while spotting if they perceive that spotting spotting with a mask on could cause themselves or your child further harm


You are within your rights to ask that we wear a mask to spot your child no matter what the skill. There may be skills that we feel mask wearing is dangerous for the coaches and in this case as well, we will come up with drills and progressions, but his or her progression will be slower


What are the biggest changes you should expect...

Coaches may be sitting more often, due to the masks

Coaches will be doing less spotting 

Children will have far more accountability in terms of learning, listening , and progression

Your child will have to re-learn skills he or she used to be able to do with ease

All registration will now HAVE TO be online

All coach communication will HAVE to be done by phone, zoom, or email and cannot be conducted on the gym floor in any capacity
