Gym Reopening

August 2020/December 2020/April 2021

Dear Member,

First of all we hope that you and your families have been safe and well during the lockdown. The affect of the pandemic on us all will be something no one will forget.


Adult classes will reopen from 17th May.

For anyone of any aged that is not able to join our sessions at the gym, we are still running a number of online classes.

Having not trained for many months within a controlled gym environment, the return to gym has to phased and we have to follow strict guidelines on cleaning, training and equipment use. Things that have been incorporated to show you our commitment to providing a Covid 19 secure facility are as follows:

  1. Cleaning – all equipment and matting will be cleaned by staff between users/sessions. The gym will undergo a deep clean by Allbrite Cleaners prior to opening and will be cleaned thoroughly at the end of each day by them also. A deep clean with further fogger use will also take place on a Sunday.
  2. Staff training – staff will be working within our new Covid 19 Risk assessment polices and procedures, as well as following guidance provided by British Gymnastic Step Forwards Toolkit
  3. Building – The gym will have a controlled entry and exit system, changing rooms will be closed and the gym areas will be made Covid 19 safe for training with floor markings and directional arrows to allow for social distancing. The toilets have been fitted with hot water and wall driers. Sanitiser stations have been placed on entry, exit, as well as around the gym, along with additional cleaning stations.
  4. Training – Please visit our Facebook page ( Swallows of Helston Gymnastics Club) to watch our video which highlights what to bring to gym, what to wear, what to expect etc. Hopefully we have covered everything. The training program itself has been built to steadily return gymnastics working in bubble systems with the same coach. Before your child will resume training in August, please email back to us a signed copy of the Return to Training form attached. We will not be able to allow any members back if we have not received the form.
  5. Booking system- in line with Track and Trace the gym will be returning with a new booking system. Please follow the link emailed to you and book your training sessions as advised by the Coaching Team. Once a session is booked, gymnasts will have that training day/time allocated and priority for booking training in the following month(s). This will allow us to monitor class numbers and provide an online register of attendance.

We are looking forwards to see everyone back in the gym!
