AMKM Announcements 8/30

Good Afternoon!


Please be sure to read thoroughly!

The School Year Session begins tonight at The Avenue & The Farm!! Please be sure you are registered online at www.amkmgymnastics.com before class!!


We do still have some openings in classes at The Avenue! Enroll Today!

2021-22 Class Protocol: Class Protocol: As we kick off the new session, due to raising transmission rates of COVID and in following the recommendation of local health officials, we are once again asking that our gymnasts (and guardians) plan to wear a properly fitting mask for practice and spectating for those 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status.

In addition to masks, other key steps we are taking at the gym to keep everyone safe include requiring anyone who is ill or exhibiting symptoms to stay home, requiring frequent hand cleansing and good hygiene practices, wearing face coverings, engaging in enhanced cleaning efforts at the facility, and class and facility adaptations to encourage social distancing and limited contact. Mitigation strategies are especially important as we once again are seeing a rise in cases in our region, so we ask the following:

  1. Only bring one spectator to class. During this time, we ask that children not enrolled in a class not be in the spectator area.

  2. Anyone entering the facility and all gymnasts must wear a face covering.

  3. Any gymnast exhibiting signs of illness is not permitted at practice, and we ask that anyone showing signs of illness not enter the facility.

  4. To limit capacity in the building, we ask that gymnasts come prepared and dressed for class.

  5. Please do not enter more than five minutes prior to class to help avoid congestion in the spectator area.


These efforts were successful last year at helping us prevent COVID transmissions at the gym. As cases are rising and many of our students are returning to in-person school, we feel it is important to return to these policies. As our COVID guidelines have stated from the beginning, we adjust our COVID mitigation strategies to meet our community standards and will monitor and adjust as needed throughout the session. Our number one priority is making sure we are doing our part to keep our gymnasts, families, and community safe while doing gymnastics. We appreciate our gym families in helping us to make this possible. You will find a complete 2021-22 Class Protocol below. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

While we generally do not offer make-ups, due to our early closure last week, we are offering a make-up night on Friday, September 3rd for gymnasts from both the Avenue & the Farm. Make-up sessions are limited to 20 students for each time slot and are first come, first serve. We are opening these makeups for students who missed their final class last week or who have had to miss class throughout the summer due to COVID/illness.
