STEP 3 - INDOOR TRAINING - Beginning  July 19, 2021

Entering/Exiting CPA

  • A screening form must be completed before each training session. This form can be found on our website (see above), the Season 16 APC Facebook Group, or scanned from the QR code at the Staff Door.
  • If this is your first practice/class for Season 16, we require the following waivers to be completed:
  • Athletes will enter through the MAIN ENTRANCE with masks on. Please arrive ready to practice with cheer shoes on.
    • Once entering the lobby, athletes will check in with a staff member to ensure their screening form is complete, any other waivers have been handed in and athletes will sanitize their hands.
    • The LOBBY will unfortunately remain closed for parent viewing at this time. We are doing our best to minimize congestion with athletes coming in and out.
      • When the training session is over athletes will walk through the gym and exit out the STAFF ENTRANCE.


        During Practices/Classes

        • Whenever possible athletes will be separated by 2 meters. While practicing the sport (stunting and at times tumbling), physical distance no longer needs to be maintained.
        • Masks do not have to be worn during training, HOWEVER, for the first couple of weeks we will be asking our athletes to wear masks only while stunting. We will be moving athletes around to find the best stunt groups and positions for everyone, so we would like to keep athletes as protected as possible.


        For your protection we are doing the following to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

        • Limiting the number of people in the gym according to the current government guidelines
        • Sectioning training areas to ensure physical distancing is met whenever possible
        • Cleaning all high touch surfaces regularly
        • Sanitizing equipment after use

            Athletes will continue to wear masks while entering and exiting the gym. Athletes are not required to wear masks while participating in sport.
