We would like to take this time to recognize the HCC gymnastic program and its efforts to comply with the current regulations to help prevent the spread COVID-19.

Brandi Corbin Helton, head coach and director, and her team have set a great example for taking all the necessary steps to ensure the safety and health of the program participants is top priority. A detailed outline for opening the facility and restarting the program was presented to the board and has been followed without fail.

Gymnasts must wear a mask when arriving at the gym until their temperature has been taken. They are permitted to remove their mask during training, unless their parent/guardian has requested they keep it on. They are required to sanitize their hands when they enter the building and then go to their space on the floor for stretching.

Each gymnast is in a group they stay with during class. Gymnasts and coaches are required to sanitize their hands between each event rotation. At the end of their third rotation, gymnasts sanitize their hands and return to their original spot on the floor. They put on their mask and are dismissed in groups of five to limit congestion at the entrance. Coaches are always required to wear their mask during progressive classes. Compliance by the coaches, gymnasts and parents/guardians are what make this program successful and allow it to run smoothly. Thank you to everyone involved!
