January 2021 - back home: Holt Park Active 

The Defying Gravity Gymnastics Club trains from Holt Park Active. (Jan 2021) 

The format of our classes will be slightly different to keep in line with COVID-19 guidance given to us by the Government, World Health Organisation, Leeds City Council and British Gymnastics. 

Equipment contact is easily managed with cleaning measures in place, BUT human contact between the coach and student is difficult to manage. Gymnastics is a 'hands-on' sport- students need supporting. To mitigate the transmission of COVID 19 we are doing everything possible in order to avoid getting too close to students. As guidelines continue to change; our teaching methods will also change. 

  • Floorwork- including technique, skills, conditioning and the use of our fabulous air track. Students will adhere to 'boxed' zones meeting the requirement of social distancing. 
  • Safe-distance Bar work.
  • Safe-distance Vault work. 
  • Beam- we are currently using a vinyl cover on our beam so we can 'easy-clean' inbetween groups.

Please note- student safety would ALWAYS take priority over COVID practise i.e. if a child set off running towards a spring board and the flight was taking an unpredictable course, we have a duty of care to protect our students; therefore a member of staff would step in to support; ultimately to prevent injury.
