OUR SAFETY PROTOCOLS, DROP-OFF, PICK-UP, AND OTHER PROCEDURES HAVE CHANGED.
Please take a moment to read through these IMPORTANT UPDATES:
COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION We are looking forward to our 2020-21 session! We do have some safety changes this year that need your support. We know that we need to do our part to keep everyone safe. No facility can guarantee they are 100% virus and bacteria free, but Five-Star is doing all we can to lower the risk of exposure. The following guidelines apply to our recreation students. Team families please continue to follow guidelines already set in motion over the summer. Thank you! GENERAL GUIDELINES
We ask that you please drop off and wait in your car during your athlete’s class time. If you need to come in, only one parent or non-participating adult will be permitted to enter the building.
You must enter the building through the FRONT party room entrance ALWAYS and must exit through the REAR door to our REAR parking lot area ALWAYS. If you step out (leave the building) to your car, CVS, etc. at any time, you must re-enter through the FRONT party room entrance and have your temperature re-taken before entering the gym area. THERE IS NO RE-ENTRY THROUGH THE REAR DOOR AT ANY TIME JUST AS THERE IS NO EXIT THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR AT ANY TIME.
Everyone must wear a mask or facial covering when entering the gym.
Students will be required to wear face coverings while entering and moving throughout the gym but have the option to remove the mask while training on the apparatus. Masks can be dangerous to participants should they slip and cover the student’s eyes mid-skill.
Everyone (parent/guardians, students, and staff) entering the building will have their temperature taken with a touchless thermometer. Individuals with temperatures above 100.0 degrees will NOT be permitted into the building. We humbly ask that all families cooperate with this mandate and use make-ups where applicable if not permitted to enter.
All mats, equipment, and lobby areas have been thoroughly cleaned/sanitized.
Hand-sanitizer stations will be available throughout the gym and lobby areas. Participants will be reminded to use them frequently.
Students will need to use hand sanitizer after each rotation (except bars – before and after bars, athletes will wash their hands).
Lobby areas will be cleaned and sanitized frequently during our hours of operation.
Specific apparatus areas will be cleaned and sanitized with a Virus Fogger after use by each group.
Please have athletes bring a LABELED pre-filled bottle of water. All water bottles should have tightly fitting tops to prevent spilling. Only water will be allowed in the gym. Water bottles can be refilled by any individual in the facility but water fountains will not be available for public use other than for this purpose. Parents/adults who choose to stay for the duration of classes are encouraged to bring their own water bottles as well.
Instructors will wear masks or facial coverings and wash their hands prior to, at the conclusion of, and between classes. Instructors will also sanitize their hands after each rotation.
Recreation Class-Specific Guidelines
Class scheduled rotations will be adjusted to maintain proper physical distancing and occupancy requirements.
Our staff has been working on creating lesson plans that limit the need for staff contact. Skill spotting will be done as needed only. While this is not what we all know as “normal”, this approach will provide increased opportunity for independent learning.
Every athlete will be required to purchase a Five-Star string bag upon registration (if they do not already have one). This bag should be used exclusively for Five-Star class attendance. Please LABEL your string bag and do your part to the keep the bag clean and intact. Replacement bags are available for $5.00 per bag.
We will not be using the cubbies for the near-term. Instead athletes will be using FIVE-STAR “String Bags” to carry necessary items. All athletes will be required to use their string bag to carry their water bottle, mask, sneakers, jacket, grips, and all personal items. Each athlete will carry their string bag from apparatus to apparatus.
Class participants who are unable to follow pre-arranged social distancing guidelines will be removed from class.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE YOUR HOME
Please be sure to print, fill out, and bring a signed “Five-Star” Covid-19 Intake form. The PDF link can be found HERE.
Only one parent or non-participating adult will be permitted to enter the facility with their child(ren).
All adults must wear a mask while in the facility and children must wear masks or facial coverings when entering the facility but are encouraged to remove them for class. Masks can be dangerous to participants should they slip and cover the student’s eyes mid-skill.
Water fountains throughout the facility are to be used to fill water bottles ONLY. Drinking from facility water fountains is absolutely PROHIBITED.
PLEASE make sure that all athletes have their own LABELED water bottle pre-filled before arrival. Bottles should have tight closures to avoid spilling. Only water will be allowed in the facility. Adults who choose to remain in the gym should bring their own water bottles as well.
We encourage everyone to use a restroom at home prior to entering Five-Star. Adults may use our lobby restroom ONLY. All athletes will have restrooms available in each training zone.
Athletes must thoroughly wash their hands and feet prior to arriving to Five-Star.
Athletes should stay home if they or a household member has had onset of illness with symptoms typical of COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Symptoms include fever (>100.0), cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell.
If your family chooses to travel to a location included on the quarantine list, we are relying on you to adhere to quarantine guidelines to keep your family as well as our other Five-Star families safe.
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled class/training time.

Exit pattern is noted on the walls through the main recreational gym. Adults must stay against the white concrete wall as they walk to the exit at the rear of the gym.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ALL ATHLETES BE PICKED UP ON TIME.
