Limited Occupancy/Smaller Class Sizes

Athletic groups are limited to a maximum of 10-12 participants. Parents or caregivers are not allowed in the facility. You may walk your child through health checks and check-in, but then must exit immediately afterward.

Physical Distancing

Classes will take place outside, weather permitting. Participants are encouraged and positioned to physically distance themselves during classes.

Health Checks

Health screening questions and a temperature check is required for all participants prior to entry. Out of an abundance of caution, you may be asked questions more than once if you are participating in different programs. We appreciate your understanding. Members are asked to remain home if they are ill or have been exposed to COVID-19.
