Phase One of our return to activity plan began on the 27th July, and we are now accepting bookings for Gymnastics classes from that date through to the 8th August.
In Phase One, classes will include floor gymnastics, tumble skills and trampolining. There will not be any other large apparatus to limit the number of surfaces and therefore lower the risk of transmission of the virus.
Gymnastics classes will last for 45 minutes and will have a maximum of 3 groups of 4 children in the designated gymnastics area of the gym. As per the British Gymnastics Guidelines, to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus in our facility, we need to minimise the number of other participants each athlete encounters. We are therefore inviting members to book into a class with a pre-determined group made up of siblings or friends that you are already in a bubble with outside of our facility, up to a total of 4 participants where possible. This allows us to distance all participants safely socially (even when in a bubble, all individuals will be kept 2m apart). Unfortunately, the British Gymnastics guidance we must follow does not allow us to ensure we can fill our classes to the maximum of 12 made up of individual bookings, so please help us by booking as a group wherever possible.
Of course, we understand it may not always be possible to arrange a group bubble booking and so we will obviously accept individual participants who will then be put into a group with one other individual, but still kept 2m apart from each other at all times.
Please note that the group coach will be able to give verbal instruction, visual demonstrations, set up drill stations, breakdown of skill progressions and give both verbal and visual feedback but will not be able to provide hands on spotting.
The fees for a Gymnastics class is £8.00 per person.
Fees can be deducted from any credit you have accrued with us or charged to your direct debit account. Please note, that if you have deactivated your Casablanca direct debit, it will need to be reinstated to attend.
To book a Gymnastics class during Phase One of our return to activity plan (27th July – 8th August) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred dates and preferences for morning/afternoon/evening. We will be open for Gymnastics classes 6 days per week between 9:00am and 9:00pm (excluding Sundays). To begin with, Gymnastics classes are limited to one class per person per week. Any additional availability will be advertised via our social media for those who wish to attend more often.
Members who wish to participate in Gymnastics classes must abide by the new health and safety rules detailed in the YouTube video we sent you last month (a link to this is below). This includes our viewing gallery being closed and the gym being open to athletes only, temperature checks on entry, hand sanitising, social distancing, using the main door for entry and the roller shutters to exit and only bringing personal items that are absolutely necessary, limited to a water bottle, phone and keys.
If you are unwell, or have any of the following symptoms, please do not attend high temperature above 37.8 degrees, a new or persistent cough, loss of taste or sense of smell.
Please note that if you book in for an evening session after 6:00pm, the Casablanca Car Park will be closed to allow for our Car Park Fitness Classes that have been hugely popular for all ages (including parents!) whilst the gym has been closed and will continue during Phase One of our return to activity plan. There is parking available on the road and public car park free of charge.
Casablanca has been working hard to ensure our facility is safe for your return. The gym has had an antiviral fogging sanitisation treatment, our staff have been up skilled in our new ways of working, and our already stringent health and hygiene measures have been made even more robust.
Other options for activities in the Casablanca Gym as part of Phase One of our return to activity plan will be sent out in the coming days, so if Gymnastics lessons are not for you, keep posted for further updates.
We look forward to welcoming you back into the Gym soon!
