The Alliston Gymnastics Club is open for recreational gymnastics with limited classes and a small athlete to coach ratio. Our board of director's have put in place extra sanitizing and disinfecting procedures. Vicki Iddison Head Coach of Recreation has put together new programs with strict social distancing guidelines.
Unfortunately, parents will need to drop off their athlete at the door where their coach will greet them and bring them into the facility. We can not allow parents into the building as it will greatly reduce the number of athletes that can participate in our classes.
The Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit has announced that all indoor spaces require face coverings to be worn. We have reached out to them to clarify if it applies to our business and they have requested that our athletes wear face coverings when entering the building and in between physical activity. For this reason, we will ask that your athlete comes with a face covering if they do not have one, one will be provided for them.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office.
