The safety of our athletes, campers and staff is paramount. We will be following the guidelines set out by Gymnastics Ontario as listed below:
Entering & Exiting Facility • Limit carpooling among club participants, only members of the same family should be in a vehicle together • Utilize the physical distancing lines outside facility for parents and gymnasts to line up before entering • Ensure physical distancing requirements are met • All persons must properly wash with soap and water or sanitize hands upon entering facility • A staff member will escort the gymnasts inside the facility • Families are responsible for administering screening process about illnesses in youth or their household members & completing online assessment form every time they attend the gym • Parents must drop-off and pick-up as opposed to entering facility to watch the class, a senior staff member will walk child into and out of building
• Anyone feeling unwell MUST STAY HOME • Once classes are over athletes and parents need to leave the gym, no lingering around and chatting permitted as Requirements for Health & Safety • Pick-up and drop-off of camp participants will happen outside the program setting unless it is determined that there is a need for the parent/guardian to enter the setting. • Pick-up and drop-off procedures will support physical distancing and cohorting using strategies such as, but not limited to: avoiding group transportation (carpooling), separate cohort entrances, having one designated parent/guardian pick-up and drop-off each camp participant & staggering entry. • Alcohol based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content will be available at all screening stations and entrances to the program. • Staff will do their best to insure physical distancing requirements are met • Heightened cleaning of entire facility, especially high touch, and high traffic areas (e.g. entrance, washrooms, etc.) • Ensure respiratory etiquette is followed by advising individuals to cough or sneeze into one’s arm or a tissue • Limiting the number of participants to allow physical distancing and prevent crowding • Clean a minimum of twice per day, or more frequently when possible the washrooms (high traffic area) • Provide hand sanitizing stations throughout facility • Provide additional hand washing stations (e.g. kitchen sink), or hand sanitizing • Clean/disinfect gymnastics equipment between classes, where possible, and at the end of the day • Once classes are over for the day and all athletes have left, all additional surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected (mats, floors, counters, bathrooms, office space, door handles, light switches, railings, etc.) • There will not be any public water fountains in the gym that athletes can drink directly from. Gymnasts will need to provide their own water and there will be no sharing. • Use of personal chalk containers rather than open chalk bucket and wash hands after using equipment • Athletes are not permitted to share personal training equipment (e.g. grips, slippers, wrist bands, wrist supports, ankle braces, tape, etc.) for the individual’s cohort (group/class) and should not be handled by individuals from other cohorts (groups/classes). . • Ensure each camp participant has their own drink bottle that is labeled, kept with them during the day, and not shared. • Ensure each camp participant has their own individual meal or snack with no common food items (e.g., salt/pepper shaker, condiments). • Physical distancing will be maintained while eating.
