  6. Gymnasts are then provided with a pair of CGC grippy socks which are to be worn during their class to avoid skin contact with equipment. Competitive gymnasts may occasionally need to remove their socks for certain skills, they will need to spray their feet with sanitiser before starting work on a new area of equipment. 
     

  7. Earring tape and hair bands cannot be provided by the gym. You must ensure your child is ready for gymnastics and unfortunately, if hair is loose or earrings are not covered or removed, your child will not be allowed into their class. A catch-up session may be provided depending availability.
     

  8. Toilets will be allocated to groups of gymnasts (yellow, orange, green) to limit cross contamination as much as possible. Gymnasts will only use their allocated colour toilet.  Gymnasts should try and go to the toilet before leaving the house to limit the use of our toilets as much as possible. Gymnasts will wash their hands for 20 seconds and use a paper towel to dry which will then be put into an open top bin. A spare coach will ensure that the flusher, toilet seat, door handle and taps are wiped before anyone else enters.  
     

  9. Gymnasts will be asked to re-sanitise their hands before they move to a different area or new piece of equipment to prevent cross contamination.

Our coaches have up to date first aid certificates and know how to provide effective treatment curing COVID-19, whilst also keeping both the gymnasts and themselves safe.
