Whilst we apologise for any disruption, we trust you understand our decisions and role in supporting public health.

What precautions are we taking?
We have installed additional hand sanitiser stations throughout our venues as well as increased cleaning and more regular disinfecting of surfaces.
Signage has been placed throughout our venues to help communicate the importance of hand washing, covering your sneezes or coughs, and staying home if unwell.

Certain activities have been modified where possible and without compromising safety to ensure social distancing is practised.

Our cleaners have response kits ready in the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at our venue, and are using the latest hospital grade cleaning materials.
Increased cleaning protocols for gymnastics are in place including deliberate handwashing of all participants at the commencement of lessons; modification of certain physical activities to minimise social distancing; wiping and cleaning of equipment between classes and after lessons.
