Trix Acro Gym Announcements

November 21, 2020

Dear Trix Community!

As of Monday, November 23rd, all our classes will be cancelled until further notice. The last 5 months in the gym have been a real pleasure to work with your kids whether through summer camp or gymnastics classes. We look forward to once again being able to open our doors to everyone soon enough.

In the meantime, all accounts are on hold until Trix is able to resume the kids' training. Once we have a better idea of what the return will look like we will determine how to adjust the session calendar to make it all work out.

For those families interested we have our Zoomnastics classes available for registration. More information on these classes will be sent soon.

At this time we wish to express our sincere thanks to everyone for your ongoing support and trust in Trix Acro Gym. We love our Trix community and can't wait to share the gym space with our favorite people really soon.

Good news, Trixters! We return to our regular scheduling this Saturday, November 14th. We are so excited to be able to welcome our students back into our facility once again. We have taken the necessary precautions to ensure the kids safety and to abide by the City of Toronto guidelines for safe reopening given the current restrictions.

All the protocol from before the October 9th restrictions will be in place (screening, separate entrances, cleaning protocol etc.) IN ADDITION TO the following measures:

1. Our main gym space has been subdivided into three spaces to allow for maximum 10 participants per room. This new layout allows us to bring back our regular schedule.

2. All coaches will be wearing masks while coaching and will maintain social distance should they need to take a 'mask break'.

3. Should the parents of students require their child to wear masks during gymnastics activities they are permitted to do so by Gymnastics Ontario. Social distancing will be maintained throughout the gymnastics training by all students with the direction of the coach.
