SAFETY

YOUR CHILD'S SAFETY REMAINS OUR TOP PRIORITY

We have reinvented every single lesson plan to make them extraordinarily FUN with safety at the centre of all classes.


All classes are COVID-SAFE with enhanced sanitisation measures taking place before and after every class, restricted class numbers and safe-distancing to keep safety at the core of everything we do.

Please do not attend classes if anyone in your household is self-isolating, or has displayed symptoms of COVID19 in the last 7 days.


We take our responsibility to care for the safety and welfare of your children very seriously and during these uncertain times we want to offer you the reassurance that we have created an environment that is safe whilst remaining fun, creative and supportive for every single child who steps through our doors. Our mission remains the same, to build confident kids though the wonderful sport of gymnastics.


There are limits to the amount of children we can allow in each class, due to the new safe-distancing rules as I’m sure you understand and pre-booking into your chosen class will be necessary. 


Please take a look at our Safety FAQ’s which detail all covid-safe measures that we have put in place and we are on hand to answer any questions that you may have by phone or email.

Questions and Answers

SAFETY


We have introduced some very detailed safety measures with advice from the local authority, the national gymnastics governing body, and the NSPCC, as well as with all government guidelines.


The following outlines the various measures that we have put in place to help keep all of our members, guests and staff covid-safe whilst taking part in classes and camps.


We ask that you explain to your child and remind them before each of their classes and camps that they must follow the coaches instructions at all times and that safe-distancing will be in place inside the gym.


Please do not attend classes if anyone in your household is self-isolating, or has displayed symptoms of COVID19 in the last 7 days.



CLEANING & SANITISATION


The entire building and our sports hall/s has been deep cleaned with vigorous daily covid-safe cleaning protocol in place.  

Our gymnastics and trampolining apparatus are sanitised before every class by staff who have been trained in the correct covid-safe cleaning methods.

Staff and members must use the hand sanitiser when entering and reentering the sports hall.



SAFE DISTANCING


Safe-distance is followed at all classes with a one-way system for many of the activities.

Coloured discs are being used for members to stand on during static work such as warm-ups and cool-downs, to keep safe distancing.

The warm-up floor will have separated mats to keep safe-distancing.



LESSON STRUCTURE & COACHING


Classes and Camps will look and feel a little different. Our lesson plans have been reinvented to be covid-safe whilst remaining a lot of FUN and all staff trained in the operation of each lesson plan. Members will be guided in how each section of the class works and we have created a very simple to follow system without compromising on FUN & ADVENTURE where learning and building confidence will remain at the heart of our classes and camps.


  • There is a one-way system for most parts of the class to promote safe-distance at all times.
  • Coaches are not physically supporting (spotting) members for skills, so will be teaching skills that members do not need physical support for. However your child’s coach will always be standing close by the landing zones and tumble tracks, so rest assured that if they need to step in for any safety issues they will do so.
  • We won’t be giving our usual ‘high-fives’ to acknowledge effort, but will be using a lot of verbal feedback to coach and encourage.
  • We are concentrating on skill consolidation rather than learning lots of NEW skills so that hand supporting is not used.
  • Class times are different and do not overlap. This allows the team to sanitise all equipment in between each class.
  • Camps will not follow the usual themes since we are not encouraging dress-up or hall decoration.


Q: Does my child need to wear a face covering?

A: No. Face coverings should NOT be worn at class as this will hinder communication and breathing efficacy. This is in line with advice from the UK government and the gymnastics national governing body.
