Don't just do it; do it right!
2500 Cedardale Rd. Mt Vernon, WA
We are very happy to announce that Skagit County has opened to Phase 2! With that being said, Morrison Gymnastics Academy is reintroducing team athletes starting this week. Over the next couple of weeks our recreational programs will slowly be integrated into the gym within particular safety guidelines. Our staff will be in touch with families who were enrolled prior to COVID-19 with new class schedules/opportunities. We can’t wait to see everyone—we’ve miss all that we do and your kiddos bouncing off our walls!
Note: Morrison Gymnastics runs on a four week schedule. There are no recreational classes on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of any month.
Free Registration for the Month of July!
Call: 316.655.3014 for class times.
New COVID Gym Policies
We are looking forward to servicing our families soon. Here’s a list of what you should expect as we look forward to implementing procedures with a “re-start” for the near future.
Covid-19 Safety Procedures for Starting Back up sometimes in June. Phase 2 of Governor Inslee’s startup plan allows us to run at 30% occupancy and hopefully will be in effect in June for Skagit County.
Morrison Gymnastics will be following the guidelines listed below until the CDC or Governor Inslee removes some of their safety recommendations.
Per Governor’s request participants will need a signed a waiver of risk for Covid-19 in order for your child to attend any practices during Phase 2 and Phase 3.
Parents, please take your child’s temperature every day prior to practice. Keep your gymnast home for any temp > 100.00 for at least 48 hours. In addition, your child should stay home until their temp is <= 100.00 for 48 hours. Please keep your child home for any cough, shortness of breath, fever, sore throat, headache, muscle aches that are not related to exercise, loss of smell/taste, pink eye, vomiting or diarrhea.
Student should be dressed for class and hair up/done if needed prior to arriving to gym. We want to remind parents and students that there is a limit for the bathroom—one at a time (unless your family member/child needs your assistance). Due to the small area outside the bathroom, socially distance markers will be available as necessary for a wait line.
Students can wear socks, gymnastics shoes, or go bare feet. However, socks without traction will need to be removed prior to going on any high beams.
Athletes electing to use chalk will be required to sanitize bar areas immediately following their bar workout.
We suggest students bring their own personal water bottle, filled at home and using a water bottle that does not require hands/fingers to come into contact with the drinking opening to open/close the water bottle.
During Phase 2 we will adhere to a maximum of 5 students per recreational class. Most team students will train earlier in the day and not at the same time as the recreational students. We will have more windows and doors open to facilitate extra air flow.
Only 1 parent per student will be allowed to watch classes from our viewing area for a maximum of 60 minutes per class. There are 7 socially marked designations for seating. We will also provide socially marked areas outside one garage door for additional viewing.
The Governor suggest adult visitors wear a mask and maintain 6’ from others.
Our class schedule has been changed to stagger the start times so that only 1-3 classes will be in the gym at one time.
All parents and students will enter from the main entrance where one of our front desk staff or coaches will do a covid-19 symptom check and possibly a temperature check. Students will be required to wash hands upon entering the gym. One of our staff will escort students to the marked designations on the blue gym prior to starting class.
We will have staff on hand to clean various surfaces throughout the day.
Coaches will wash their hands between classes and will wear masks as needed when spotting athletes for their safety.
All staff members are to agree to adhere to a 72-hour wellness standard. Should they feel fatigued, or obtain a fever, within 72 hours of a shift, they are required to call-out from the shift.
Upon any information that a staff member or visitor should test positive for Covid-19 we will immediately notify all family members and personnel who may have been exposed and require a 14 day quarantine. We recommend you contact your doctor.
We ask that families register, pay, and make all their class changes over the phone during our transition, until we get to phase 4 of the Governor’s plan. Our office will be available if you are able to maintain 6’ from one another (wearing a mask is suggested). We ask that students leave their personal items with their parents during class as to avoid lack of social distancing when class is dismissed.
Open gyms: Phase 3 with maximum of 20 participants (Start date and times to be announced).
Birthday Parties: Phase 3 with limited participation.
Phase 4 back to regular schedule.
