Planet Gymnastics is currently targeting Monday, June 15th for a return to the gym.  Based on the most recent guidelines provided by the governing state and local authorities, the experiences of gymnastics schools in other parts of the country as well as those of excellent industry consultants we regularly work with, we are confident that we can provide a safe environment for your children to get back to being more physically active and having FUN in the gym.

Planet Gymnastics will reopen with three (3) different options for your children. Each lesson option will allow you to utilize your credits or make ups as either full or a partial payment for the class type selected. There is nothing for you to do right now.  We are actively preparing the schedules and will communicate the process very soon. A brief overview of the four options follows below:

 

    1. Traditional Groups for Preschool and School age– 4 to 6 children per class with a teacher who has their mouth and nose covered.
      • Semester – NEW Spring / Summer semester that will take us to the end of August.
      • Daily Lessons – 10 lessons in 2 consecutive weeks.
      • Private Lessons – one child with one teacher who has their mouth and nose covered.
    2. New Offering – Parent & Child Only – one parent with one child.  Suitable for up to 5 years old.  There would be multiple parents and children in the gym doing the same lesson with the necessary space allowed between participants.
      • Semester – NEW Spring / Summer semester that will take us to the end of August.
      • Daily Lessons – 10 lessons in 2 consecutive weeks.
      • Private Lessons – one child with one parent in the water while instruction is provided from the pool deck.
    3. Additionally, you may self-form a group of 2, 4, or 6.  If you prefer to be in the gym with children of friends and families who you know, we can accommodate that request.  Please reach out to billing@planetgym.com for scheduling.  The families would have to self-form this group. 

Planet Gymnastics is making every effort to bring back all employees. There may be some who have moved back home from college or are unable to return for other reasons. In those cases, teachers will be replaced with equally skilled and well-trained instructors.

  • Please bring your own water bottles.  For the time being, Planet Gymnastics will no longer let children drink from common water fountains.   For your convenience, we will have water for sale in the vending machines.

  • My other child who is not in a gymnastics class, and I have no other option then to bring them- if your family has no other choice, bring the sibling and keep them close to you. 
  • My 2 children go to class one after another.  What can I do with them when not taking the class?  Keep them close to you and respect social distancing. 
  • If a Tiny Tumbler is with one parent, can the other parent attend?  We prefer one parent comes per child.  We understand there may be situations were 2 adults are needed.
