Parents/caregiver will not have access to the facility (except preschool parents who may have 1 adult attending) Parents please drop your children off no more than 5 minutes prior to their training session.

Parents participating in Preschool programs need to be wearing a mask while inside the facility. Please have your CVC ready on arrival.

We encourage our gymnasts that have the app to sign in on entry. We will also have QR codes available on the exterior of the building for parents/caregivers wishing to sign in. There will be a staff member recording athlete attendance on arrival.
