Covid-19 Protocol

New protocol to attend our classes. We ask all our clients (member and parents/guardians) to adhere to this actions.


a) We will Take the temperature of gymnasts and parents/guardian prior to entry to the venue (a temperature of above 37.9 degrees is a high temperature). Anyone displaying any symptoms or a temperature of 37.9 or higher will not be able to enter the sport hall. If this occurs the child will be able to recover the missed class in the future.


b) Face masks:  Both British Gymnastics and the government do not recommend the use of masks/face coverings during sports activities. All forms of face coverings may restrict breathing efficiency and should not be used during exercise except on specific advice from a physician. 

Gymnasts can wear masks during the times between the apparatus rotation, between time in apparatus, if they so wish, but masks should not be worn whilst on equipment or performing any form of gymnastics elements, including warm ups/cool downs.


c) Only one adult (guardian or parent) per house hold is permitted when arriving and leaving the class. It will help to keep social distancing at the start and the end of the lessons and prevent crowd.

Parents are advised not to gather 


d) Arrive on time. Some venues will not permit the parents to go inside the premises. A head coach will be waiting outside before the starting time. We recommend to arrive 5 minutes earlier. Registers will be carried out only by the head coach. Parents will not need to fill the sign in/out.

e) Changing rooms out of use: It is not allowed to use the changing roomsAttendees are advised to arrive already dressed with the gymnastics uniform. Only toilets are permitted to be used.


f) Hand sanitiser: We will have marked a station for hand sanitising. Each child must wash their hands/use hand sanitiser before entering the sport hall. During the lessons the participants will also have to use hand sanitiser when rotating apparatus.


g) Bubbles: Each participant will be allocated in the same group during each session. Siblings will train in the same group whenever possible.


h) End of lessons. The lessons will finish 5 minutes earlier or start 5 minutes later to maintain social distancing.


i) No assisting/holding is permitted. Social distancing must be adhered to at all times and no contact is permitted between coaches and gymnasts, or gymnasts and gymnasts until the relevant government removes/reviews social distancing.  

    However in an extreme situation our coaches will prioritise the safety of our gymnasts above social distancing, so we will hold/assist/support our gymnasts in case they do a skill incorrectly and lose their balance or fall badly. The coaches will hold, support or assist the gymnasts in order to prevent an injury as far as they can. 

j) All attendance and guardians will be asked to follow the one way system from each venue. Parents can not stay in the School's car parks waiting for their children during the lesson.


k) Rhythmic apparatus: Each gymnast should have their own rhythmic apparatus. No sharing is permitted (except by siblings).

A full description of sizes and measurements is display on our Uniforms Page. Please check the size carefully before placing an order.
