    • With reduced numbers in our upstairs viewing area (18) we are asking that one parent/guardian per family attend. We also ask that if your child is 10 or over you bring them into Gymnastics, drop them off and return to collect them to help limit numbers in the viewing area.
    • Gymnasts will be collected from upstairs and taken back up at the conclusion of class. You can collect your child from the gymnastics hall, however please do not gather in the hallway.
    • Gymnasts will not be warming up together, they will remain in their group of up to 10 for the duration of their session.
    • Changes to Balance Play:
      • To make sure we are not gathering in groups larger than 10, mat time will be modified with many opportunities to still interact with the coach and participate in activities through the session instead of all at the same time.
