The safety and health of all of our athletes and staff still remain 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 gymnastics 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. 

WestCoast Training Center is offering recreational classes per the day camp guidelines  After a studious morning of virtual learning, gymnasts does a body good! Also, PE has never been such a necessary combination for both school credit and physical health. Below are the guidelines we will implement along with the ACPHD guidelines and requirements to keep our our students and staff safe for everyone while providing fun gymnastics for all our students:​

 

  1. WestCoast Training Center is allowed the maximum number of 4 stable groups of 15 or fewer students. Stable meaning that the same 15 or fewer athletes are in the same group each day. Groups will never mix with each other during a session. One of those groups will be our Tiny Tumblers that are held upstairs in their own space. 

  2. In order for the class to get the fullest out of their training, we are splitting the 15 person group into two classes and keeping the ratio to 7 students per 1 coach.

  3. WestCoast staff will be assigned to a class and will remain solely with that group of students.

  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?

  5. Parents must stay with their child until they are completely cleared. When cleared, we will mark them present that day for class and they can enter the lobby through the one-way entrance door. 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.

  6. Regarding who enters the facility, we kindly request for only one parent per student view in our lobby or our upstairs viewing room at a time. Social distance markers have been placed around those areas for the parents to simplify the process. Parents must wear a face covering and social distance inside the facility at all times. They will not be allowed to enter the gym, or upstairs in our Preschool Room where the students and staff are training. 

  7. During class, if anyone is 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.  

  8. Staff are required to wear a mask and are to maintain the 6-feet social distance unless spotting gymnastics skills that necessary for the safety of the student. Please email us if you do not want your student(s) spotted while learning gymnastics skills. 

  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 class, staff will clean the areas used by the students. Every evening, 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 15 athletes are at one facility, each group will be in separate spaces/rooms. The gym has been divided into 4 different spaces using our big pipe & drape competition set-up including one room upstairs solely for ours Tiny Tumblers. 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. 

  13. When leaving the facility, all students will exit through the exit door following the one-way exit path. We ask all parents wait outside at the entrance of WestCoast Training Center following social distancing guidelines. The coaches and staff will make sure they are safely returned to their parents. 

 

Important factors to please consider before signing up for our classes:

  • To honor the required group of 15 or less athletes, sign up is for an entire month. No one day sign-ups will be allowed. There are no refunds once signed up including if a class is missed for any reason.  

  • In compliance with the ACPHD, we are not required to social distance the students within their controlled group of 15 or less along with their coach (as long as the coach is wearing a mask) during the classes 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 and wear gloves.

  • 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. 

  • 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.
