COVID-19 Customer Agreement

I want to do my part to help Altius Gymnastics keep all students, coaches, and families safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. I have read, understood, and agree to follow the following policies and procedures.

I understand and agree that:

  • I should have my child(ren) use the restroom and wash their hands at home, before arriving at Altius Gymnastics.
  • I will drop my child(ren) off and pick them up at the designated door to the gym.
  • My contact information must be up to date, and that I remain reachable while my child is attending practice.
  • Only one parent or non-participating individual will be allowed to enter the building at the main entrance.
  • I will observe social distancing in the lobby area. Spectating is not encouraged, but Altius understands that it may be necessary for some.
  • Altius requires hand sanitizing for everyone who enters the building.
  • Masks are recommended for all spectators and non-participating individuals.
  • My child(ren) cannot leave any personal belongings in the lobby, including shoes, non-gymnastics clothes, and jackets. I will limit the number of items brought in to the gym. If you drop off your child, they must carry their belongings with them in a personal bag.
  • Practice start and end times have been adjusted and staggered to ensure a safe entrance and exit from the gym and to allow for cleaning between each class period.
  • Child(ren) will report to their designated warm-up area
  • My child(ren) will have frequent opportunities to sanitize their hands while inside the facility.
  • I will keep my child(ren) home if they or anyone in my family is coughing, has a temperature over 100, or other Covid-19 symptoms.
  • I will have my child(ren) wash hands and feet thoroughly upon arriving back home. Clean their bag upon arriving home, and again before bringing it back to the gym.
  • I understand that all Altius staff members will make a strong effort to socially distance, but that due to the nature of the sport, there will be times that contact or less than prescribed physical distancing will occur.
  • Spotting is sometimes necessary for safety and to prevent injury. Children will only be spotted as needed.
  • I am allowing my child to participate at Altius Gymnastics, knowing that it is impossible to keep them, myself, or any other individual inside the gym completely safe from COVID-19 exposure.
  • These procedures will evolve and change over time, and that I will follow any new standards required by the state and local government, and by Altius Gymnastics Academy.

Gym Bag Policy

All students are required to bring their own bag to practice.

We recommend a string bag, back pack, or gym bag. Bags should be large enough to zip / cinch easily with everything inside. Students will enter Altius and store their shoes and clothes in their bag. We recommend wearing only flip flops and a t-shirt over your leo if weather allows. Progressive and Ninja students will carry their bag from event to event and store them separately from each other. Kindergym students can leave their bags with their parents or store them separately in the Kindergym room. Sharing supplies and equipment is not allowed.

All items should be clearly labeled with your child’s name.

  • Gym bags should include:
  • Outside identification; luggage tag, unique ribbon, or name tag - something for your child to easily identify it by
  • Travel size hand sanitizer; Altius has multiple sanitizing options, pack an individual size for convenience and less contact
  • Band Aids and tape (can be purchased at Altius)
  • Filled water bottle; water only. Bubblers are closed, water will be available for purchase.
  • Pouch with extra hair ties, clips, brush, etc.
  • Tissues

Gym bag policy is expected to stay in effect through August 28. Thank you for your compliance.
