To Our Valued Membership,
We know these times have been challenging to say the least, and our staff and executive have been working diligently to put together a return to gym protocol document that will allow our staff, coaches, athletes and parents to feel confident in returning to the gym. Our mission statement has always defined our club, and was the basis for this document.
Twisters Gymnastics and Trampoline Club exists to provide effective gymnastics and trampoline programs for the growth and development of all athletes up to the provincial level.
Our goal is to provide athletes with a safe, yet challenging program where each individual has the opportunity to reach their potential. This is accomplished by employing professional certified staff who instruct, encourage and monitor the progress of each athlete on a regular basis.
Coaching development and training is ongoing and encouraged at Twisters continually. This is to ensure that our staff are confident and competent. The success of the club and its athletes is a result of a combined effort of athletes, parents, coaches and executive members. It is important that we all work together to achieve our common goal.
The health and safety of our students, their families and our staff are of the utmost importance. As we return to play after the disruption of the COVID-19 outbreak, every decision, policy, and procedure are made in the interest of all participant’s safety and health, both physical and mental.
Everything about this disease, its spread, government guidelines, social responses, the needs of our families, and the economic impact have been in constant change. Our plans and procedures for how we address these issues must be adaptable. We will constantly evaluate our policies and procedures; and adjust our responses accordingly.
We will do everything we can to meet and exceed, provincial, federal and our sport’s governing bodies guidelines, while also minimizing interruption of ‘normal life’ as much as possible. We understand that certain solutions and policies will not be the most appropriate for each family. While we try our best to create the optimum environment for everyone to safely participate, we of course will respect those families who have had to make the difficult decision to delay their return.
Given the above statements, and in the interest of protecting the health and safety of our students entrusted to our care, their families, and our staff, we will be enforcing all policies and procedures listed within the RTPH. If a student, their family, or a staff member is unwilling to abide by these policies and procedures they will not be allowed to participate until their willingness to do so has changed.
