COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY

Effective June 1st 2020

 

Island Elite Cheerleading Health & Safety Protocols:

 

Drop off & pick up only, viewing area/lobby will be closed until further notice. Only athletes & coaches permitted inside the gym.

 

Athletes may only enter through the front door and may only exit through the rear door (near the bay door facing the parking lot).

 

Athletes must sign in with a coach upon arrival at the front door, then complete a verbal health survey, and use hand sanitizer before entering gym. Athletes may wear a mask if they choose to but they are not required at this time.

 

If you or anyone in your family is sick, please do not come to the gym. Send us an email ahead of time to cancel. Unfortunately, No refunds will be permitted.

 

Contactless payment ONLY. If you have a credit card on file, your account will be charged for each lesson/class. If you do not have an account on file an e-transfer for the class cost including GST must be emailed to islandelitecheerleading@gmail.com BEFORE your class.

 

You may line up outside 15 minutes ahead of time at the most. Coaches will allow athletes inside the gym 5 minutes before class begins. Please maintain 6 feet apart while lined up outside & entering the gym. Safe distance markings will be in place.

 

Athletes will be assigned a personal practice area at least 6 feet away from other athletes on the floor. Please only bring a water bottle, phone, and keys inside the gym. Personal belongings should only be stored inside your bin in your personal practice space. Bins will be sanitized after every class.

 

No stunting, spotting, or contact with others. 6 feet physical distance will always be maintained unless emergency first aid is required. Coaches will use masks & gloves to perform emergency first aid if needed.

 

Athletes will not perform new skills that require a spotter. Focus of lessons will be on maintenance of skills, regaining physical fitness, building strength, and performing tumbling drills and skills that can be safely executed with use of equipment and sprung floor. 

 

All equipment will be sanitized between use from one athlete to another during a class. Athletes may be asked to wipe down their equipment and the expectation is that they cooperate with all health & safety guidelines. All equipment and high touch surfaces such as door handles, light switches, taps will be sanitized after each class. All mats & floors will be deep cleaned each night with a chemical sprayer using Lysol Multi Surface Cleaner (included on Health Canada’s list of disinfectants with evidence for use against Covid-19).
