COVID-19 Policies

COVID-19 Policies

Please review the following policies before visiting CPA for your scheduled lesson/class.

Updated May 10, 2022

Anyone entering the CheerPride All-Stars facility will be consenting to the following:

  • The individual is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
    • difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; chest pain or pressure; loss of speech or movement; fever; dry cough; tiredness; aches and pains; sore throat; diarrhea; conjunctivitis; headache; loss of taste or smell; a rash on skin; or discolouration of fingers or toes
  • The individual has not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 to the best of their knowledge
  • The individual has not tested positive or are awaiting test results for COVID-19 within the past 5 days


Entering/Exiting CPA

  • Athletes will enter through the MAIN ENTRANCE.
    • Once entering the lobby, athletes will check in with a staff member to ensure their waivers have been handed in and athletes will sanitize their hands.
      • 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, if you would like your athlete to continue wearing one for all of their practices, please feel free to do so.


        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
        • Clean of the gym prior to the following days practices/classes
        • Anyone exhibiting any persistent signs and symptoms while practicing at the gym will be removed from their practice/class, masked, and asked to sit in our lobby.  Parents will be informed and asked to come get them immediately.


        Beginning Monday, March 21, 2022 masking will become optional when entering CPA. The choice to wear a mask is a personal choice and must be respected at all times. 
        Exceptions to this are:
        • If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 you will be required to wear a mask for the 10 days following that exposure.


        Athlete Positive Covid-19 Test

        Although our gym prides itself on its screening, cleaning, and safety protocols there is always a chance of exposure and contraction of any COVID-19 strain.  If an athlete in any one of our classes tests positive here is what you can expect from CPA:

        • Comprehensive discussion with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit in order to determine what athlete(s) will be deemed high risk exposure or low risk exposure athletes. SMDHU refers to “high risk” as individuals who have had close contact (under 6 feet) for an extended period of time (10-15+ minutes of constant or transient contact)
        • CPA keeps track of all stunt groups at all practices and can differentiate what should be considered high risk vs low risk athletes, BUT the health unit can deem whomever they wish high risk
        • Based on the number of athletes determined to be high risk at said exposure point, the next practice may be canceled or continue as scheduled and will be at the discretion of the CPA staff for what is the safest course of action for everyone within that practice, as well as the guidance of the SMDHU
