New Procedures & Protocols

While some things have changed, we promise that our commitment to you and your stars remains!  Below you will find some new changes/procedures we've put in place to keep everyone happy and healthy:

Building & Staff Changes
  • All Staff Members will have a temperature check before they enter the building.
  • All Staff Members will be wearing masks.
  • We have a newly constructed lobby that alleviates the bottleneck congestion by our Front Door.
  • We installed brand new floors in our lobby, viewing room, and hallways that can be cleaned more efficiently and effectively.
Cleaning Procedures
  • Staff will be sanitizing gym stations throughout the afternoon/evening.
  • The entire gym will be fogged with a disinfectant spray at least twice a day (usually more often!).
  • Common areas will be cleaned/disinfected throughout the afternoon/evening.
Class Changes
  • We are going to ask that everyone in the building over the age of 2, including athletes in our Baby Dippers Class and Up, wear masks before, during and after their practice/class/camp/etc. 
  • We ask that all of our students use our socially distanced cubbies for shoes, coats, and bags.  If you chose, wipes will be available for you to sanitize your cubby.  Staff members will also be routinely sanitizing the cubbies throughout the day. If parents prefer to keep shoes, coats, and bags with them rather than using our cubbies, please be sure to arrive on time for class pick up.
  • Downstairs students will bring their water bottle and hand sanitizer with them into the gym for class. We have partnered with 3330 Oak who has designed special Flying High hand sanitizer holders and Flying High face masks.  Both items can be personalized with your athlete's name!  Athletes will be able to hang their sanitizer from their water bottles and easily carry both items with them in the gym during class. Orders can be placed via our online shop. 
  • We will help all students sanitize hands and feet before starting class.
  • Toddler athletes will receive stickers instead of stamps at the end of class.
  • Water Fountains will be closed.  Please be sure your gymnast has enough water to last the entire practice.
Camp Changes
  • We are going to ask that everyone in the building, including all campers and athletes, wear masks before, during and after their practice/class/camp/etc.
    • Counselors will be giving 15 minute “mask breaks” every hour and a half for all campers.
    • Counselors will also be talking with all campers and encouraging campers to ask for a break if needed.Camp will run normally with the following exceptions:
    • Campers are asked to bring enough water to last the day as water fountains have been turned off. 



Party/Space Rental Changes
  • Flying High will require masks for everyone in the building (over the age of two). This policy covers all classes, practices, events, rentals, birthday parties, and spectators.  Masks are also required for all party attendants and building staff. 
  • The water fountains will also be closed.  Please be sure to bring enough water to last the entire party.
