Return To Sport
(We have adapted the BC Sport Cheer Protocols. Anything recommended is considered mandatory in our facility. Our policies are more strict than required for indoor sport, however, we have had success with our practices and will continue to protect our members by taking recommendations very seriously.)

Parents remain on site during Health Assessment and Attendance
Leave personal belongings in car where possible
Wear layers appropriate for temperature
Sanitize hands at entry, exit, and after contact
Wear CLEAN Indoor shoes only !
Spray bottoms of shoes at entry. Remove outdoor shoes before entry
Arrive at least 5 minutes early for drop off and pickup! Late pickups incur a charge.

- experienced new COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days
- are waiting on test results

If you answered yes to any of the above do not go to the gym or participate in any in person training activity. Self-isolate and follow the instructions on BC Thrive https://bc.thrive.health
Due to process delays with the public health contact tracing, we ask that If a participant has contracted COVID, and the participant has been in our facility within 14 days of developing symptoms, please inform us immediately so we can take action to protect our members.

In the event that a facility full closure is required, all regular classes will move to virtual programming and may include slight schedule changes. It is our intention to avoid any changes to the schedule wherever possible.
Cancelled Day Camps and single day workshops will be credited to accounts for future use.
Any programs that we can move to online in the event of a closure will be just so.
We understand that in these times, virtual alternatives are the best solution and thus remains our policy. We are happy to be able to offer continued activity to foster some level of normalcy for our members in the event of isolation/closure.
REOPENING AFTER A CLOSURE
Once given the green light to reopen, some time (1 to 2 weeks) may be required to prepare for reopening with any updates or changes to previous protocols to ensure the safety of all members and staff.
All changes will always be communicated by email or Band to our members. Please ensure your contact info is up to date.
