The Weather Forecast – Perfect Storm’s Weekly Newsletter

Weather Forecast – June 29, 2020

WE’RE OPEN! 
Today is the day that we re-open the gym after closing on March 13.  We are so excited to welcome you all back and have lots of protocols in place to ensure everyone is kept safe.

Please take a moment to watch our video on returning to the gym: https://youtu.be/k7pt_FT90Eo

COVID Screening Form
We have developed a screening form that must be filled out EVERY TIME an athlete comes to the gym.  This will be in effect until further notice.  Athletes whose forms are not filled out will not be permitted to enter the gym.  We suggest that you save the link to this form so that you have easy access to it each time you come to the gym.  All staff will also be required to fill this form out.  We have been having issues with the actual link being emailed but the form does work.  If the link does not work, please just copy the URL into a browser.  You can also access the link from our Storm Chasers page on Facebook.  Link to the form: https://forms.gle/j3zKsW9KNTUYzpsM7

New Policies Reminder

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Perfect Storm Athletics will have several new policies in place when we re-open in July.  These will include but are not limited to:

  1. Daily health screening of all participants and staff.  Anyone who has not completed the form or is ill/have any symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted in the gym.
  2. No spectators permitted in the gym.
  3. Athletes may not enter the gym more than 5 minutes before a class or lesson and must leave immediately following the conclusion of their class or lesson.
  4. Athletes must come to the gym dressed and ready. Do not bring extra bags, jackets, etc with you into the gym.
  5. Water bottles MUST be labelled with the athlete’s name.
  6. Athletes and coaches will remain 6 feet apart.
  7. Hand-washing and sanitizing processes will be in place along with additional cleaning of the gym and equipment.

We ask that everyone please be respectful of these new policies and remain diligent in following all protocols to ensure the health of all of our athletes and staff.

Private Lessons
Private lessons are open for booking.  Space is very limited.  Because athletes are not allowed in the gym prior to their scheduled lesson and cannot warm up in the gym before, we have a list of activities athletes can do in the grass (6 feet apart) before their lesson if they like.  Anyone in a 1 hour lesson should not need to warm up outside.

  1. Jumping jacks or cheer jacks
  2. Hollow body hops
  3. Pike walks
  4. Inch worms
  5. Grasshoppers
  6. Leg kicks
  7. Stretch wrists and ankles
