Spirals “Zero Tolerance” Illness Policy

All individuals including gymnasts, coaches, administrative personnel, parents, and recreational class members shall perform a personal health evaluation prior to every entrance to any Spirals practice, class or event. Individuals should ask themselves about signs or symptoms of illness including but not limited to fever, shortness of breath, cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, nausea or vomiting, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, skin rash, generalized fatigue, enlarged lymph nodes, and muscle aches. 

Spirals policy states that individuals who have signs or symptoms of illness should stay at home and will not be allowed into the gymnasium or practice area until either the individual is symptom free for over 72 hours or the individual has written clearance to return to gym from a licensed medical professional such as a Physician, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician’s Assistant. 

Arrival

Spirals members can park in the parking lot at the corner of Phelps Rd and Mills Way, closest to the playground and Harriet Phillips Meadow (the field we will use). We will have a table set up at the field near the parking lot as our front desk. Markers will be placed on the ground at least 6 feet apart so that members can line up in a distanced manner. All members over the age of 2 years old should arrive with a face covering on. 

Front Desk

Every child must be accompanied by an adult to the front desk. At the front desk, members will be screened by asking:

  1. Have you, or anyone in your household, have had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 3 days? A symptom list from the CDC will be visible on the front desk.
  2. Has the participant had any known contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

If the answer is yes to either of these questions, the Spirals member will not be allowed to participate in the class until they can answer no to both questions. A full refund for the class will be issued at this time. 

We will have a no-contact thermometer available at the front desk, and may take temperatures as necessary for anyone entering onto the field. We define a fever as a temperature of 100.2°F or above. If a participant’s forehead measures a fever but we have reason to believe the surface of their skin is hotter than their internal temperature (i.e. they were standing in the sun for a period of time), a secondary temperature will be taken off of their neck, side of their arm or palm.

Members will be asked to use hand sanitizer (provided) before entering onto the field, and face coverings will be available for anyone who arrives without one. 

Entry onto the Field

Once participants have passed the screening, they will be directed onto a specific mat that they will remain on for the duration of the class. 

Exit Process

At the end of practice, members picking up their gymnast will line up on the same markers they did before the start of practice. Once class is over, participants will be dismissed one-by-one in the order of the parent/guardian line. The gymnast will bring their belongings off of the mat to the person picking them up; once they have cleared the area and the next member comes to the front desk, the next gymnast will be dismissed. There will be a 15 minute break in between classes to allow time for the entrance/egress protocols as well as for cleaning mats.

 

As per local guidelines, our worksite-specific plan and our RISE checklist are available upon request.


Covid-19 Virus Update

Dear Spirals Family:

UCSB has just informed us that in addition to transitioning to virtual instruction, they are cancelling all youth related programs on campus beginning tomorrow, March 13, 2020.

Spirals was already in discussions to furlough its Recreational Programs through the end of March and we fully support the decision by UCSB to cancel youth programs. Currently the closure is through April 6, 2020.  UCSB will re-evaluate on going closures on April 1, 2020.  Spirals will keep you informed of any updates.

For our RECREATIONAL families

For classes in April, Spirals will resume instruction as soon as practical after UCSB re-opens its facilities to youth groups.

Currently, we are hopeful that the Covid-19 community impact will be minimal and Spirals will be resuming Recreational classes in mid-April.

For our TEAM families

Due to uncertainty regarding COVID – 19, SoCal gymnastics has cancelled the Level 6-10 Optional State meet.  As it stands now,  every athlete who qualified for SoCal State will qualify for the Regional Meet, if held.  Regarding ongoing Team training:

The Spirals staff is currently looking into potential alternative training sites/options.  Also, to keep our gymnasts in the best shape, our coaches are also actively working on individualized land based workouts for the team athletes, possibly through Titan.

Going forward, there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and it’s impact on our community.  Spirals will continue monitor the situation and we are committed to keeping our Recreational and Team families informed on a regular basis.

Should you have any questions, please reach out to any our Coaches and/or Board members.   We will do our best to answer your questions.

 

Sincerely Yours,

Spirals
