The Governor of Virginia has announced the enactment of "Phase Three" of re-opening beginning July 1st. This allows us to open more enrollment options.

The staff at VIGS has been very busy teaching our returning students and campers and keeping the gym safe. We have been deep cleaning, we put a fresh coat of paint on, we disinfect all surfaces and matting constantly and disassembled and disinfected our pit area before covering it for ease of cleaning. Staff wears masks. Hand sanitizer is being required of students before taking turns on certain equipment and instructors are using hand sanitizer strategically to keep everyone safe. We have removed certain water fountains and replaced them with hand washing stations. We have installed touchless faucets in the restrooms. Restrooms are cleaned every thirty minutes. The registration desk has a plexiglass barrier to give you and our office staff a higher level of protection and comfort as they help you get your children enrolled again. All of this can change and even more could be done depending on day to day changes in the Covid-19 environment.
The current Covid-19 pandemic is unprecedented. We want to thank all of our customers for supporting us in this difficult time. Your phone calls and other encouragement have been uplifting! The prospect of seeing everyone again and to be able to provide you with the fun of gymnastics has kept us motivated to prepare for your return. To our staff at VIGS, we appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm during this period! You're the best! The one certain thing we can all look forward to is that this will pass with time and we'll be back to a "new normal".
Please continue to practice good hygiene, distancing and be safe. Just as important, look out for each other, family, friends and those not so fortunate that may need our help and compassion right now.

Here's a huge THANK YOU to all the Nurses and Doctors working to save and protect us and eliminate this Covid-19. Please know this includes the dozens and dozens of current and former VIGS parents and athletes who are in those professions now. We are infinitely proud and thankful you do what you do. Please be safe!
Along with the rest of the country, Virginia International Gymnastics Schools has been paying close attention to the ongoing health concerns related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and has spent the last several months learning about Coronavirus and how to minimize its impact on our staff, students and families here at VIGS.
Our overriding concern has been and will continue to be keeping you, your child and our employees safe. At this point, we are following all recommendations from State and Federal authorities to help mitigate this virus.
Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly (for 20 seconds) during practice or classes, after using the restroom or after any sneeze/cough.
If soap and water are unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
Additional recommendations and resources from Chesterfield County Schools information:
Once we reopen, if your child has symptoms of illness that would prevent participation at school, then please keep your child at home and call the school (VIGS) to report that your child is sick. Returning to school (VIGS) too soon may delay recovery from illness and may potentially expose others.
