Avant Coeur Gymnastics Voluntary Closure

Yesterday, we let you know that we we’re trying to navigate these uncharted waters as best we could, and that we we’re planning to stay open until our scheduled Spring Break starting on March 30th.
However, we have now concluded, following our school district announcements, that it is best for our community and our gym to follow their guidance. Therefore, all classes and activities will be suspended beginning Monday, March 16th – April 5th.

We know that you will have many questions about what this means for you. We thank you in advance for your patience and graciousness while we are working through this unprecedented event.

What does this mean for families enrolled in classes and paying tuition?

Any classes missed will be able to be made up. When we re-open, we will have both regular class make-ups and some exciting, creative alternative make-up solutions for students. Our commitment to your family is that we will completely deliver everything we promise with your tuition dollars.

What does this mean for families attending drop-in activities (Open Indoor Playground, Super Saturdays, Flip Flop Shops and the Jam)?

All drop-in programs will be suspended until we re-open. We will work individually with any currently scheduled Birthday Parties.

What does this mean for gymnasts in competitive programs?

All team practices will be suspended until we reopen. Our team program leaders are working through this situation, in conjunction with USA gymnastics, and will have further information for our competitive families specifically, which we will communicate directly to you as soon as we are able.

Please understand that this was a very difficult decision for us to come to, and was not made lightly, but one that was made in the best interest of both our staff and customers. We have a responsibility, as a company who works with hundreds of children and adults, to comply with social distancing guidelines in order to ensure a safer and healthier community for all. It is impossible to conduct progressive and safe gymnastics if we are unable to spot our kids, and keep everyone separated by at least six feet at all times. We cannot put our vulnerable populations or medical professionals at greater risk by continuing the spread of this virus. The most responsible thing we can do is to take greater action now. As always, thank you for your support. We are hopeful that this action allows us to get back to normal soon so we can be back to serving our community stronger than ever!

Your Avant Coeur Crew will be meeting very soon to create some creative ideas for your gymnasts to have some ‘at home classes’ by video to work on strength, flexibility and balance even while they are out of the gym.

It is currently our intention to re-open from this, 'Early Spring Break' with any necessary schedule changes following recommended guidelines.

Also, we know that talking about COVID-19 can be scary for your child. Please follow these links for some good suggestions for those conversations from some of our trusted resources.

Dear Avant Coeur Gymnastics Families

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. As it becomes more of a public health issue in our area, we will continue to look to our community, state and national leaders for guidance. We will take this day by day, because the safety of your family is of the utmost importance to us. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we make these challenging decisions. As usual, we will be closed for Spring Break. This year it will be March 30th - April 4th - No Classes, Team Practices, Open Indoor Playgrounds or Special Events. We will be looking at a multitude of scenarios as to how to run make-up classes, clinics or events that will most benefit our customers if a longer closure becomes necessary. We are doing, and we will continue to do everything possible to take care of our customers and employees. We are constantly processing information, and we strongly believe that being creative is the key to solving problems. Again, we thank you for your loyalty to Avant Coeur Gymnastics and for your continued support.

A message from Avant Coeur Gymnastics

At Avant Coeur Gymnastics the health and well-being of our students, staff and community are our highest priority. In response to the Coronavirus we want you to know that… We urge our students and staff to stay home if they experience flu-like symptoms. We support this by providing sick days for our staff and make-ups for our students. We disinfect all mats and non-porous surfaces before our students arrive and disinfect hard surfaces, such as tables, multiple times a day. We provide hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap and wipes in multiple locations in the gym, waiting areas, bathrooms, and offices. Also remember! Active kids are healthy kids! In addition to good hygiene keeping kids active and moving will help them fight any virus they come in contact with. We will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our customers and the community as needs arise. Thank you and take care!
Lisa Adlard, Owner
