We are a non-profit society, and are grateful for the support of our families, our parents, our Board Members, and our sponsors!
We have a variety of classes for the young and old - Recreational, Competitive, Freestyle, Parkour, Special needs, Birthday Parties, Dry-land Training and more......
The gym is open Monday to Friday at variety of times for classes/programs - please see schedule.
Welcome and Welcome back to Gyminy Crickets and Kimberley Gymnastics!
By now everyone is aware of all the protocols in place by all businesses and schools and we are no exception. I just want to note a few things so everyone is aware and knows what we are doing when you send your kids to us. Without it being too much information (we did email everyone the restart plan back in June) plus by now everyone is aware of the “new normal”
We too have taken safety measures for extra cleaning with a product called vital oxide that is safe for kids, animals and equipment buts kills Covid and other viruses, we will be using that after every class - crickets and gymnastics and every night during the big clean. We will also be doing spot cleaning on all the hot spot areas, bathrooms etc. before, during and after each program.
Parents will have to do a self-assessment on their child every morning prior coming to the club. Do not send your child if they are sick, if a coach sees a child unwell, they will be sent home. I will send out reminder emails periodically.
Everyone (staff included) entering the building and staying for a class will be washing their hands once they remove their shoes and coats. Also during, if needed and before they leave. We also have hand/feet sanitizing stations throughout the gym at certain equipment when needed.
Coaches will be manning the door inside and only allowing 2-3 kids in at a time.
Please be on time for Dropoff and pickup and quick as you can.
Older kids can get dropped off outside and they come in alone and wait outside for pickup.
For younger kids, drop off can be done at the door inside.
For kids that are struggling with drop off, 1 parent will be allowed with a mask to come in with their child for a very short time in a designated area. This will mostly apply to Crickets since they are 3 and 4 yr old and it can be scary entering a place new for the first time.
We are capping class sizes in every program.
Staff will work from home when we can.
No drop ins or parent watching, and no birthday parties.
We always took attendance every class and now it can be used to track any outbreaks that we are made aware of, if needed.
Payment can be done by cc over the phone, etransfer to this email, post dated chqs leave in mailbox. Cash in an envelope handed to the coach at the door.
All Forms need to be filled out prior to class – there is 2 new forms from Gym BC that is required for all programs. I can use last year forms if you were here, otherwise new ones will have to be filled out and signed. If you haven’t done so, please go back to the email I would have responded back to you and print off the forms required, there is some in the mailbox now for pickup if needed.
Please remember to bring own filled water bottle.
For Crickets - at the start there will be lots of going outside and movement based games, so please have a snack and their coat in their backpacks. They are also going to look at staggering craft/snack times and see if that works.
As we all know sometimes things seem like it will work on paper but needs tweaking when hands on.
This is new for all.
We want to be able to keep running and not change a lot if/when we change back to a different phase from the BC government or Gym BC.
I hope this all makes sense and if you have any questions or concerns please reach out and all staff at the club is excited to get back to work and play, teach and coach your kids!
The gym is closed all Statutory Holidays, Christmas Break, Spring Break and July and August with the exception in summer for competitive summer skills training.
