Hi Gym East Families,
As many of you may have seen, our state will have a new set of guidelines going into effect at 11:59 pm on Monday evening. Youth sports fall under these restrictions, so this email is to address the changes that will go into effect immediately.
For classes that run on Monday, November 16th, we will be running as usual. Masks will be required for athletes at all times, which will be the only change! As usual, all of our stations will be socially distanced, we will perform temperature checks upon arrival, and we will respect the occupancy numbers we have been following.
Beginning Tuesday, November 17th, all of our classes will move to Zoom. Our staff has been prepared to move to Zoom in case of an emergency, and we are spending today and tomorrow setting up those classes on our accounts. We will be sending links out from the gym tomorrow and these classes will be at your normal time with your regular instructor.
All of our 45 Minute Classes (Parent-Tot, Grasshopper, Cricket, Bumblebee, and Ninja 1) will be 30 minutes via Zoom. All hour-long and hour-fifteen-minute classes (Hummingbird, Ninja 2, Mini Bounder/Bounder, Mini Flip/Flip, Aerials, Springers, Mini Eagle/Eagle, and Falcons) will be 40 minutes. All of our hour-thirty-minute classes (Middle School) will be one hour. Our two-hour high school class will be an hour and fifteen minutes.
Parents, we are giving everyone the option to attend two classes per week since we are shortening the times to work with Zoom time limits and screen-time attention spans! This will be your normal class time and one other class of the same level/type from the list on our website. If you are interested in doing a second class each week, please email your request for your second class to email@example.com. You will need to email the office each week with which second virtual class you would like to do that week.
For now, these changes will be through December 14th, but as we all know this is a changing situation. This may continue on or be shortened, and we will do our best to keep everyone in the loop. Please note that we do have some scheduled closures coming up, and there will be no classes via zoom on these dates:
Thanksgiving Weekend: Thursday, Nov. 26-Sat Nov. 29
Winter Break: Tuesday, December 22nd-Sunday January 3rd
Thanks, everyone for your patience and grace as we go through this together. We feel so grateful for the opportunity to coach your kids and we love our time with them.
