Glacier’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
– 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.
