WITH MITIGATIONs IN PLACE
WE ARE BACK!
Tuition and Classes
Anyone that placed a temporary account freeze will resume classes on June 8th, 2020. Do not forget, this is a tuition cycle date. Tuition for this cycle will be charged on that day.
Due to concerns regarding the current spike in COVID cases, we will be automatically moving all currently frozen accounts to a partial freeze status. This will not guarantee your time/day/coach but will allow for your make up classes to be retained once you return. If you would like to unfreeze your account for July 6th, please contact the front desk ASAP.
We are currently planning to service materials from the Olympics and credit the difference to accounts. Please lookout for more details as they become available.
Families who were charged in March 2020 for recreational tuition:
Recreational Make Up Classes will be available for classes missed during March tuition. August membership fee (for 2020-2021 Membership) will be pro-rated by one month due to closure during 2019-2020 membership. To receive your benefits you must register by clicking the “Register for Your Benefits” button below.
Families who stayed enrolled and supported G.USA March-May:
These recreational families will receive double classes during June, July, and August (this so to not have to register weekly for make-up classes). August membership fee (for 2020-2021 Membership) will be pro-rated by 3 months due to closure during 2019-2020 membership. Also these members will pay the Bronze bracket but as a thank you, we will be upgrading these to Gold. To receive your benefits you must register by clicking the “Register for Your Benefits” button below.
*Membership benefits apply to recreational and team families
COVID EXPOSURE UPDATE
As COVID positive results continue to rise across our community and country, we want to bring assurance that any student or coach that has direct exposure or has tested positive, will refrain from coming to the facility until cleared, following the local, state, and CDC guidelines.
At G.USA, and virtually every place where there are people, there have been individuals exposed to this virus during what is being called the second wave. Some have tested positive, including some staff on the recreational side of the facility. However, none were severely ill and some lacked symptoms entirely. There will continue to be more exposures and positive tests throughout our community as this goes on throughout the year, that likely won’t change for a long time. If there is a case that we discover within close proximity of time from exposure, we will inform parents who had contact with that individual. Thus far, this has not occurred as cases were from people who have not been in the facility for some time or not with confirmed contact with our clients and members while positive.
We will still keep the facility clean and sanitized daily with FCDP protocols.
We will also still follow local, state, and CDC guidelines.
SOME MITIGATION, SUCH AS LIMITED RATIOS AND LIMITED SPOTTING, WILL PHASE OUT AS NEW DATA IS RELEASED.
Gymnastics USA has completed a total transformation of the facility. Including a disinfecting process of the highest level utilizing Certified Specialists in Environmental Decontamination.
These professionals utilized Ultrasonic Spraying Devices to fog every inch of the facility with an advanced antimicrobial solution. With this disinfecting process, coupled with our already in-place Facility Cleaning Disinfecting Program, we are confident and excited about our healthy and clean status.
We have also reformatted the recreational areas to ensure maximum use of space, allowing for open areas and clear individual training stations.
