COVID-19 SPECIAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Drop-Off and Pick Up: We ask that parents drop off at the front entrance and pick up at the garage exit to reduce contact between those leaving the gym and the next group arriving.
Social Distancing- Gymnasts: 6’, or 36 sq. ft. per gymnast (6x6), is the physical distancing standard for Illinois. AGI’s facility is more than able to meet these standards and even increase these standards to 10’ or 100 sq. ft. per gymnast and still have most of the gym space to spare. Even so, we will be altering our team schedules to reduce overlapping schedules.
Wherever possible we have scheduled 30 minutes between groups leaving the gym and the next group arriving and staggered the start times of overlapping groups. This will greatly help us avoid crowding at the entrances, and in the restroom.
Every AGI gymnast must bring a bag containing a water bottle, hand sanitizer, and a block of chalk in a sturdy plastic box or heavy duty gallon-sized ziplock bag with the gymnast’s name on it, and their own training accessories.
The communal chalk trays will not be in use, except to catch excess chalk. These will be cleaned and sanitized regularly. We will continue to provide filtered cool water at the north corner of the gym.
Gymnasts may elect to wear a face mask while training.
Social Distancing- Parents: 6’ is the standard. We will continue to offer parent viewing in-gym but it will be limited to a capacity of 12 until further notice. We are looking into options to add additional seating (bleachers), but for now this is the best we can do while ensuring a safe training environment. We are asking that when you do want to watch that only one parent watches. Parents must wear face masks and observe all necessary social distancing measures. Siblings will not be allowed.
AGI is also exploring cost-efficient virtual viewing options.
Customer Service: The front desk will be completely removed, and all customer service, including the Pro Shop and Snack Shop will be conducted between classes via coach, on a self-serve basis, online, or by text or phone. More details to come.
Social Distancing - Coaches: Our coaches will be required to wear masks and wash their hands before spotting. Coaches will be allowed to wear face masks at all times.
Spotting: Physically manipulating (spotting) a gymnast is a crucial aspect in training gymnastics. It increases the physical safety of the athletes, puts the gymnasts in the right position to help the learning process, and it prevents injury. While we will actively seek to reduce the amount of spotting by increasing the use of drills and progressions, spotting will remain part of what we do.
Hyper Attention to disinfecting and cleaning surfaces and the gym in general: As you may recall, we had a particularly hard-hitting winter flu season, and we were already doing this before the threat of COVID-19 became our new reality. We will continue to do so.
Time between classes and practices will be used, in part, to wipe down equipment and for the coaches to thoroughly wash their hands. In addition, we strongly urge the gymnasts to wash their hands thoroughly before leaving for the gym.
We also urge a thorough washing after the gymnasts get home. The single most concerning chokepoint in the gym is the restroom: we only have one unisex restroom and two sinks. We cannot insist on frequent washing if we only have two sinks. Instead we will rely on you to get those hands washed before and after practice.
During practice we will give the athletes time to use their hand sanitizer between each event and we will have plenty of hand sanitizer available throughout the gym.
Athletes and Coaches will have their temperature taken daily.
-Any athlete or coach with fever registering 99.0 degrees or higher will not be allowed to participate
Symptomatic Coaches and Athletes:
- any coach or athlete exhibiting frequent COUGH will not be allowed to participate
- any coach or athlete experiencing shortness of breath will not be allowed to participate
- if any coach or athlete with a family member or close contact are exhibiting any of the above constellation of symptoms and who suspects or is being evaluated for Coronavirus, we ask that you and your athlete remain at home
