Outdoor Classes at Girsh Park

Sign up for a trial, enroll, or waitlist for the class you're interested in below. Each child will get their own mats and equipment, set up in a socially distant manner, that we will disinfect in between classes. All class tuition is per month.

Sign Up

Spirals Members: Use the Parent Portal to sign up.


Classes will be held at the Harriet Phillips Meadow at Girsh Park. Members can park at the parking lot at the corner of Phelps Rd and Mills Way (see red circle in image below). Our front desk and class will be visible from the parking lot. Please line up in a socially-distant manner when you arrive.

What to Wear/Bring

Have your child wear what they would normally wear to a class - either a leotard or athletic clothes they are comfortable going upside down in. We will be on mats, so they can have bare feet in the class if they would like, or they can wear shoes if they prefer. Please also bring a water bottle for your child.


Please print and bring our Spirals COVID-19 waiver to your first class. We will also have waivers and clean pens available at the front desk if needed.

Safety Precautions

We will be maintaining social distancing throughout our class, and following all local, state, and federal guidelines. Each child will get their own mats and equipment that will be set up at least 6 feet away from other children. To maintain distancing, coaches will not be spotting, but will also not be asking children to do any skills they would want to spot (choosing proper progressions instead). Mats will be disinfected in between classes.

To follow local guidelines, we ask that all members over the age of 2 arrive with a mask on (we will have masks available to anyone who needs them). Children will be permitted to take masks off during exercise because we are maintaining a minimum 6 ft distance outdoors.

All participants will be asked if anyone in their household has had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 3 days, or if the participant has had any known contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If the answer is yes to either of these questions, a refund will be issued immediately and the member will not be allowed to participate in classes until they can answer no to both questions.

You can read our full COVID-19 precautions and the procedures for arrival/exit on our COVID Safety Page.

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,
