Glacier’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

Updated Aug 24, 2021

This page reflects recently communicated (Aug 20, 2021) requirements of the Interior Health Authority (available here). As well as previously communicated (July 2021) Return To Sport Plan – Step 3/4 that relaxed operating restrictions the PHO, viaSport and Gymnastics BC.

Glacier’s Original COVID-19 Safety document no longer attempts to keep up with changes, though it outlines the protocols we operated under during the pandemic. We have transitioned to a work safe approved Communicable Disease Plan.

We are currently following the practices outlined below:

Our Sickness Policy is enforced: please do NOT send your children to gymnastics if they are sick.

No Spectators

  • Indoor sports activities are currently not allowed to be open to spectators.
  • Our viewing area remains closed.
  • We have a protocol in place for PreSchool programs starting in the Fall. Parents will enter the facility (masks required) to help their preschooler at the start of class. Parents will then leave the gym, and return at the end of class for pic up.

Mask Requirements

  • MASKS REQUIRED: When entering and exiting the facility and during non-gymnastics activities such as snack breaks. This applies to all persons ages 12 & up (we recommended masks for younger ages).
  • MASKS REQUIRED: Staff are required to wear masks at all times while inside the facility (including coaches while instructing their classes).
  • MASKS REQUIRED: Parents and all non-participants must wear a mask at all times when inside the facility. There are no exceptions. We are currently discouraging parents from entering the facility. There is no viewing of classes. Parents should try to conduct administrative needs over the phone or email.
  • NOT REQUIRED: Masks are not required for participants, during gymnastics activities / training / classes. Masks compromise vision/safety and are prohibited from use during gymnastics activities.

Physical Distancing

  • Glacier Gymnastics continues to operate under reduced capacity and smaller than normal class sizes. We are currently observing social distancing practices during all activities.
  • All types of spotting are allowed. However coaches are not currently working skills that require extensive spotting.

 Daily Screening is No Longer Required

 Hand Sanitizing

  • Is no longer required.
  • Sanitizer continues to be available. 
  • Frequent handwashing will be encouraged.

No Changes – the Following Are Still in Effect

No spectators allowed at this time. Our summer class schedules make use of the viewing area and we will not be implementing any changes to allow spectators into this space at this time.

Access to Locker Rooms and Bathrooms continues to be restricted. Use of these spaces will continue to be minimized until janitorial needs can be addressed.

Daily cleaning & disinfecting protocols remain in place.

Entrance and exit protocols remain in place.

What to Expect at Gymnastics – Recreational

Declaration Agreement (updated June 2021) – In order to participate members must agree to abide by Glacier’s Safety Plan. This agreement is to be completed online as part of the registration process.

Glacier Gymnastics Club’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

Declaration of Agreement
Participation and registration for gymnastics requires parents/guardians to agree to abide by the Club’s Safety Plan. In order to register, you will need to electronically sign a Declaration of Agreement (via the online registration software). This agreement will be periodically updated, which will require that you log in to your account and sign a new Declaration. (This will happen any time the Safety Plan receives a significant amendment).

Daily Screening

  • An electronic screening form must be completed by a parents/guardians each day their unaccompanied child will be entering the facility.
  • Parent/guardians must complete the form on behalf of their Child Participant.
  • Adults entering the facility as participants, to view classes or for administrative reasons must complete a paper screening form at the door.

Mask Requirements
At this time, we do NOT have the ability to make exceptions to any of the listed masking requirements in our safety plan. These requirements have very little application to child participants. We can not accommodate adults requiring masking exceptions. Please call us to clarify questions & requirements.

Highlights of the current Safety Plan include:

  • Social interaction elimination.
  • Increased physical distancing at all times.
  • Mandatory mask use for specific individuals.
  • Travel restrictions (except for when members access their own club).
  • Suspension of all group adult programming.
  • Special considerations for adults helping with active start and adaptive programs.

Updated Dec 3, 2020

Classes to Resume for Friday Dec 4th

Today, the Provincial Health Officer issued an Order on Gatherings and Events. As a result of this Order, youth sports (including gymnastics) are permitted to resume activities, provided that specific requirements are followed.

Some of the revised requirements which clubs must adhere to are in the areas of:

  • Social interaction elimination
  • Increased physical distancing
  • Mandatory mask use for specific individuals
  • Travel restrictions (except for when members access their own club)
  • Suspension of all group adult programming
  • Special considerations for adults helping with active start and adaptive programs

GBC’s Return to Sport Plan has been updated with revised guidelines, and all clubs must closely review the revised plan. Clubs must then revise their own COVID-19 Club Safety Plans and have them approved by their board or other appropriate personnel.

Glacier Gymnastics Club’s own Safety Plan has been updated to meet the new restrictions. New procedures are in place for all classes.


Updated Nov 20, 2020

In accordance with the new Provincial Health Orders (Nov 19), Glacier Gymnastics Club has adjusted our COVID-19 Safety Plan (linked below).

Gymnastics is an individual non-contact sport where social distancing can be maintained; our facility is able to remain open and classes will continue to run.

The Glacier Gymnastics Return-to-Sport Plan has been updated with the following changes becoming effective immediately:

  1. All persons entering the facility must wear a mask. 
  2. Parents and/or guardians that are in a parent participation parent-tot class are also required to wear a mask while in the facility and while participating in the class.
  3. The parent/guardian waiting room that was open for preschool classes will be closed until December 7, 2020. Parents will wear a mask while escorting and waiting with their child before the class begins. Parents/guardians will then exit the facility, returning to the pick-up room 5 minutes before the end of class.
  4. All staff are required to wear a mask during the check-in procedures at the start of the class, and while assisting with dismissal. Masks are also required for any engagement with parents while not coaching.
  5. Coaching must be performed hands-free (no spotting). However, if a participant’s safety is at risk, the coach should not hesitate to spot. Additionally, coaches must wear masks when standing in for safety.
  6. Participants are not required to wear a mask, and coaches are also not required to wear masks while coaching in the gym unless physical distancing is unable to be maintained.

We are continuing with our strict cleaning protocols and the daily screening health checks are being done for any individual entering our facility. 

We will continue to update you if there are any other changes. Thank you for your ongoing trust and understanding while we navigate through these uncertain times. The health and safety of our members and staff is top priority and we will continue to work at ensuring we are doing everything we can to reduce the risk. Call us at 352-2227 if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Return to Gym – What to Expect
  • Glacier Gymnastics Club’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

Updated Sep 2, 2020

BC’s Sports Sector is moving to Phase 3 and in turn Gymnastics BC has revised their Return to Sport Plan. Accordingly Glacier Gymnastics Club’s COVID-19 Safety Plan has been updated (see below). We are currently preparing for Fall registration.

And the facility is also receiving a high efficiency LED lighting upgrade.

The start of Fall Session will be delayed until October 1st. We are planning to offer most of our previous class schedule (with smaller class sizes, and less classes in the gym), many class times have been changed to reduce the numbers of kids in the gym at the same time. The schedule is available here.

As we prepare to welcome back our recreational students; parents will want to take the time to learn about all the changes at Glacier.

Here’s the Info You Need to Know

  • Return to Gym – What to Expect
  • Glacier Gymnastics Club’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

– Updated July 1

Glacier Gymnastics Club’s COVID-19 Safety Plan was approved by our Board of Directors on June 15, and we have been given the green light to start running classes. We are in compliance with all safety requirements outlined by the Province (BC Health, ViaSport BC, Gymnastics BC).

We’re excited to get back to sport!

(Updated July 1st) – We started with Step 1 with the older and more experienced gymnasts June 17-25. All protocols are working well and we are moving on to our 2nd step. Additional staff have been trained on the procedures and the program schedule is being expanded starting on July 2nd. Once we are satisfied that we can run an expanded schedule safely we will look at reinstating some Recreational Summer Camps. A rough estimate for these classes is an August start date.

Our number one priority is the safety and well being of the children and our community. We will progress our plan only if & when we can safely do so.

All participating members will be required to understand and follow all new safety measures.

Important Changes To Know

Our Safety Plan is very detailed and contains every safety measure we are following. If you haven’t read it yet, be aware that coming to Club and Communicating with staff will be very different.

  • The Club’s Office will remain closed for now.
  • Entrance to the facility is only open to class participants and only just prior to the start of their class.
  • Club Administration will be minimized as much as possible, as we try to cope with the increased costs of running classes under significantly reduced capacity and social distancing requirements.
  • Communications should be conducted via email and telephone as much as possible. “In person” communications will need to be scheduled in advance – completion of the screening checklist is required upon each visit.

Updates on our progress and summer scheduling will be published once we are able to progress to the next stage of our Safety Plan (hopefully by the end of June). Watch our Facebook page @glaciergym.
