REC ALLEY REOPENED MONDAY, 15 JUNE
We are pleased to announce Rec Alley will reopened on Monday 15, June. The Rec Alley team have worked pre-opening to ensure that our processes, systems, communications and the coaching team are prepared to run gymnastics classes in a Covid-Safe environment.
WE’RE GUIDED BY GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRY BODIES
Rec Alley is guided by Government, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), Gymnastics Australia, Gymnastics NSW, SafeWork Australia and the relevant health authorities providing assistance and support at this current time.
Rec Alley Gregory Hill’s reopening and Rec Alley Minto’s opening will be staged based on easing of restrictions and advice from the relevant Government and industry bodies.
CLASS SIZES AND AMENDED TIMETABLE
As per the current level of restriction easing (20 participants per class), Rec Alley Gregory Hill’s classes have up to TWELVE (12) participants with ONE (1) coach. For Kinder Gym classes requiring parent participation, the total parent participation number is SIXTEEN (16) PLUS the coach. Kinder Gym children (gymnasts) are not counted in the restrictions.
Additional parents are not allowed on the floor during the current phase of restriction easing.
Based on Rec Alley Gregory Hill’s facility size, we are not to exceed 1 person per 4 square metres at any given time. Based on our class schedule and visitations data, we DO NOT exceed or get close to the Covid capacity in the facility (including gymnasts, families, visitors and staff).
FEELING UNWELL? AVOID VISITING REC ALLEY
If you are feeling unwell, even slightly, the best course of action is to self-isolate and not attend Rec Alley Gymnastics. Rec Alley offers members and families make up classes and also, if you speak to your coach they may be able to offer you a home program to keep up with your gymnastics whilst away from the club.

WE ARE ENCOURAGING NO SPECTATORS
Rec Alley encourages parents and/or guardians to drop off and pick up their children (gymnasts) for after-school classes to ease any congestion and for better adherence to social distancing measures.
We fully understand some parents may want to be present, especially when there is a safety reason. If you do decide to stay, please ensure you maintain and follow our other advice on social distancing and hygiene.
‘GET IN, TRAIN, GET OUT’ – AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF SPORT (AIS)
Rec Alley has adopted the ‘Get in, train, get out’ AIS guide for training and community sports.
Essentially, the focus is on the following:
- Arrive dressed and ready to train
- Minimise use of bathrooms and change rooms
- Maintain a 1.5m distance when training or visiting
- Meetings and some training to be done from home (where practical)
CLEANING AND HYGIENE
At Rec Alley we’ve made changes to the way we operate to increase our capacity and capability to further provide a hygienic and clean environment for gymnasts, families, visitors and staff.
Here are some of the cleaning and hygiene changes:
- Increased cleaning schedules with clean of the equipment and surfaces occurring either before or after each AM and PM shift in addition to general cleaning checklists.
- Hygiene and cleaning measures to continue from Level B
- Increased time between classes allowing a quick spot clean of equipment used
- Allocated resource to assist with cleaning of common surfaces regularly (front desk staff)
- Deep clean once per week of all the equipment
- Commercial clean of all carpet areas every 10 weeks
- Adopted and adherence to Gymnastics Australia’s cleaning guidelines factsheet with information sourced from SafeWork Australia
