THE GYMNASTICS ACADEMY
UPDATED COVID-19 PROTOCOL
Thanks to everyone for attending SWEET TEA CLASSIC! This is the fourth meet we have done during the pandemic. With that being said, we learn at each meet and try to make improvements along the way. The Gymnastics Academy of Atlanta along with LakePoint have come up with safety guidelines to keep all of our spectators and gymnast as safe as possible. As most of you are aware LakePoint is a large venue the will allow for lots of Social Distancing. We ask that all gymnast and spectators adhere to these guidelines to allow everyone to have a safe experience.
There will be no charge for parking. HOWEVER THE GATE WILL BE CASHLESS-YOU MUST HAVE A CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD FOR PAYMENT.
Each gymnast will only be allowed two spectators per gymnast. SPECTATORS MUST ENTER WITH THIER GYMNAST, THIS WAY WE CAN CONTROL THE CROWD. Unfortunately, last meet many spectators did not abide by the protocol so we had to implement this policy. NO ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED WITHOUT A GYMNAST.
Temperature checks will be done for everyone entering the building. If you have a fever, you will not be allowed to enter.
ALL SPECTATORS, COACHES AND JUDGES MUST WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES IN THE VENUE.
Gymnast will also be required to wear a mask during down times as well as at awards. They will not be required to wear it at warm up or competition.
Gymnast need to bring their own water bottles and chalk in their own personal bins.
Make sure your gymnast arrives dressed and ready for competition. The bathrooms will not be open to do hair and change clothes.
PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO STRETCH,SO NOT ARRIVE EARLIER THAN THAT. The building must be cleared and disinfected prior between sessions.
The bleachers will be marked, and team spectators will sit in their assigned area with their team. Those areas will also allow for Social Distancing. You will be allowed to move and take a photo of your child, but we ask you to be respectful to others and try to maintain Social Distance.
Awards will be done differently than in the past few meets. Gymnast will remain at their last event and, awards will be called from there. We will only call 1-3rd for each age group. We will also call team awards from there. THERE WILL BE AN AWARDS TABLE AT EACH GYM, A COACH FROM EACH GYM WILL BE REQUIRED TO PICK UP THIER TEAMS MEDALS. IF COACHES DOES NOT PICK UP THIER MEDALS FROM THE AWARDS TABLE, AND THEY HAVE TO BE MAILED, YOUR GYM WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR SHIPPING OF THE MEADALS.
At the end of awards, we ask that the spectators remain seated. We will call your gyms name, at that time, you may pick your child up and exit the venue. WE ASK THAT YOU NOT LOITER IN THE VENUE, WE NEED TO DISSINFECT THE VENUE PRIOR TO THE NEXT SESSION COMING IN.
Entrance and exits will be clearly marked and kept to one way, as to prevent cross contamination.
We will not be passing out score sheets or rotation sheets. They will be posted here the week of the meet and you can print them off. There will be QR codes at gymnast check in so parents can follow the rotation.
Playsight, Live streaming will be available through LakePoint Champions Center at a small fee.
Hospitality will be provided for coaches in back to back sessions. We want to feed all the coaches but due to Covid this has become a hard process. We will also have snacks out the entire weekend.
If the event is cancelled refunds will be issued as close to 100% as possible.
Please note these procedures may change as CDC and local guidelines are updated, please check back for updates closer to the meet.
It is The Gymnastics Academy of Atlanta's top priority to keep competitors, spectators, coaches, judges and staff as safe as possible while still allowing the Best Gymnastics Experience Possible!
