Per the updated Alameda County Health Officer Order No. 20-14b issued on July 19th, WestCoast TC can continue to offer camps to our community following the guidelines to keep everyone safe and prevention against the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, camps are the only type of service we can offer right now. Gymnastic classes and other events such as Kids Night Out and birthday parties are still not allowed to be conducted.

The safety and health of all of our athletes and staff still remain mine and our staff’s biggest priority. We are making sure every day we are going above and beyond the safety and sanitizing requirements to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe. It’s been great to have the opportunity to re-open and provide safe camps to our community. We are grateful for all the support and seeing the many happy faces of the athletes. It's incredibly important to us to follow the guidelines and new updates, take those very seriously and do what’s best for our community. We will continue to make sure to communicate updates and make appropriate adjustments as instructed by the Alameda County Health Department as they become available. 

Starting Tuesday, September 1st, WestCoast Training Center will start offering Mini-Gym Camps. After a studious morning of virtual learning, gymnasts does a body good! In our 1 .5 hour camps, students will have an age-appropriate balance of instrucion to Open Gym play time.

Below are the guidelines we will implement along with the ACPHD guidelines and requirements to keep our Mini-Gym Camps safe for everyone while providing a fun, gymnastics-learning event for all our students:

  1. We will host our Mini-Gym Camps once a day Tuesday thru Saturday. Each evening, WestCoast will be cleaned following the CDC & ACPHD guidelines. 

  2. Our Mini-Gym Camps are allowed the maximum number of 3 stable groups of 12 or fewer students. Stable meaning that the same 12 or fewer athletes are in the same group each day. Groups will never mix with each other during a session.

  3. WestCoast staff will be assigned to a group and will remain solely with that group of students during the entire session.

  4. Our staff have been trained and are prepared to follow all appropriate protocols set forth by WCTC, ACPHD and the CDC. Our Safety Guidelines will be readily available for staff to review if a situation arises that needs specific attention regarding COVID-19, or any of our other new or existing safety procedures. 

    1. Four different sanitizing stations have been set-up throughout our facility. These are clearly marked by a sign and provide hand sanitizer through a hands-free automatic dispenser, sanitizer spray and paper towels. These four stations are located in the lobby, the gym near the restroom, the lobby hallway near the second restroom and right when you get upstairs before entering the multi-purpose room. Signs with the protocols set forth by the ACPHD and CDC for our facility are also posted at these stations.  

    2. When dropping off your student at our facility gym, everyone will wait in line on the social distancing markings in front of WestCoast Training Center. At the entrance of our building on the outside, a trained staff member will be taking each athlete’s temperature, making sure to ask them these necessary questions in person for verification they are cleared and answer any other questions the parent or athlete has. Here will be those steps:

      • Take their temperature with a contactless thermometer. If they have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, they will not be allowed to participate. 

      • Ask the following questions. If they answer yes to any of the following, they will not be allowed to participate. 

      • Do you have any shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?

      • Do you have a loss of taste or smell?

      • Do you have a sore throat, chills, or muscle pain?

      • Has anyone in your house been sick?

      • Have you been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 in the last two weeks?

    3. Parents must stay with their child until they are completely cleared. When cleared, we will mark them present that day for camp and they can enter the lobby. They will be asked to follow the pathway into the gym, and use hand sanitizer before entering the gym. We recommend arriving 10 minutes before their start time. Please try your very best to be between 10 minutes early to on-time.

    4. Regarding who enters the facility, we kindly request for everyone understands it important to take strict measures, so please no parents inside the lobby unless absolutely necessary. If necessary, only one parent will be allowed in the lobby at a time to drop off and escort them in. Parents must wear a mask inside the lobby. They will not be allowed to enter the gym, or stand in the lobby to watch the camp. 

    5. Staff will take attendance so parents do not need to sign-in and out their athletes.

    6. During the Mini-Gym Camps, anyone feeling or showing signs of sickness or a fever will be quarantined until they can leave, all other parents of the students in attendance will be informed someone left sick, and we have strict measures in place to sanitize the facility to be extra cautious.  

    7. Staff are required to wear a mask and are to maintain the 6-feet social distance at all times. 

    8. Coaches will be completely hands free and have no physical contact with any athletes unless necessary such as saving them from an unsafe situation. Parents of the student will be informed if contact was made in such events. 

    9. All doors, including the roll-up door in the gym will remain open during the summer camp to provide suitable airflow throughout the facility and to avoid unnecessary touching of door handles where appropriate. 

    10. In between each Mini-Gym Camp day, our facility will be cleaned by a professional company following the procedures in place by WCTC, ACPHD and the CDC. 

    11. If more than one group of 12 athletes are at one facility, each group will be in separate spaces/rooms. The gym has been divided into two different spaces using our big pipe & drape competition set-up. The pipe & drape reaches all the way from one wall to the other with just enough space from athletes & staff to walk around on each side. They also reach up to 16 feet in height. The drape fabric are extremely heavy and are pinned together in order to make this a very safe and more then adequate divider for the groups.   

    12. The groups will change spaces at the same time in a circular rotation so they do not pass each other. Before moving into the new space, that area where the group was prior will be cleaned. 

 

Important factors to please consider before signing up for our Mini-Gym Camp:

  • To honor the required group of 12 or less athletes, sign up is for an entire session. No one day sign-ups will be allowed. There are no refunds once signed up.  

  • In compliance with the ACPHD, we are not required to social distance the students within their controlled group of 12 or less along with their coach (as long as the coach is wearing a mask and 6-feet social distancing) during the Mini-Gym Camps including the students are not required them to wear masks and gloves. Those may be worn at the discretion of the parent. However, please keep in mind that activities such as jumping on a trampoline may make it very difficult to keep on a mask. 

  • All parents of students returning must sign our new liability waiver.

  • Groups are not required to use different restroom facilities but are required to use social distancing protocols going to and from, and while using the restroom. However, groups will be assigned to one specific bathroom and highly encouraged to only use their assigned restroom. 

  • We have a water fountain however, we will not be allowing the athletes to drink directly from the water fountain.Please make sure to bring a water bottle with them. They will only be allowed to use the contactless feature to refill their own water bottle with cold, filtered water.
