COVID-19 Safety

We have been hard at work over the past year cleaning, sanitizing, and preparing important guidelines for our gym. You and your family’s health is of the utmost importance to us. We have always taken pride in the cleanliness of our gym and have significantly increased our cleaning over and above our normal procedures. We are excited to safely welcome back ALL ATHLETES, our parent/toddler, pre-k, k2, Big Shots, tumblers, team and private lessons.  Below please find our safety guidelines and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
