UPDATE - JUNE 1, 2021
We are currently under Covid-19 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and the Governor of Virginia. AS OF MAY 15TH PERSONS WHO ARE TWO WEEKS OUT AFTER HAVING THEIR FINAL COVID-19 VACCINE, NO LONGER NEED TO WEAR A MASK OR PHYSICALLY DISTANCE. ALL STUDENTS 5 TO 11 YEARS OF AGE MUST CONTINUE WEARING A MASK WHILE PARTICIPATING IN CLASSES AS WELL AS THE NORMAL WEARING WHILE ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE BUILDING. This may take a little getting used to, or not be an issue at all for your child. You may have noticed that our competitive teams have been wearing their masks during the last year. They even competed in their masks all season. So we have a great deal of experience with the issue of wearing masks while doing gymnastics. We don't feel the intensity level of our class program presents a hardship to a child wearing a proper fitting mask. Please help us help your family, others in the community and our instructors to end this Covid-19 pandemic by explaining to your child the necessity and good they are doing by wearing their mask in class. Everyone here at VIGS wants to keep providing a fun escape each week for your child. We also want to continue to provide employment for our staff, who rely on their jobs to pay their bills. Everyone at VIGS - staff, athletes, students and parents - have been incredible since the pandemic arrived in March 2020. Thank you for that and please help us take this small but necessary step to fully open soon.
The staff at VIGS has been very busy teaching our students 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. 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 "fog" the equipment as well. We have removed certain water fountains and replaced them with hand washing stations. We have installed touchless faucets in the restrooms. Restrooms are cleaned regularly. 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. All of this can change and even more could be done depending on day to day changes in the Covid-19 environment
MASKS MUST STILL BE WORN AT ALL TIMES IN THE BUILDING FOR STUDENTS AND ATHLETES 5 TO 11 YEARS OF AGE. THIS MEANS DURING CLASS AND PRACTICES AS WELL.
Students must bring their own bottled water as our communal water fountains will not be available.
The Covid-19 pandemic was unprecedented. We want to thank all of our customers for supporting us in the last fourteen months. Your phone calls attendance and other encouragement have been uplifting! The prospect of returning to "normal" again and being able to provide you with the fun of gymnastics kept us motivated. To our staff at VIGS, we appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm during the past year! You're the best! The one certain thing we can all look forward to is that "this too, will pass".
Please continue to sanitize, practice good hygiene and be safe. We're almost there!
