Covid-19 Guidelines – Dec 2020 Update

Dear Pioneer Gymnastics Families:

We are humbled by the continued support of our families during this time. The new normal is here to stay for the foreseeable future so we ask that you assist us in doing your part to keep other families and our employees safe as you come into the facility. Our staff continues to be committed to social distancing, hygiene, health checks, cleaning, as well as Pioneer specific COVID19 control policies. In addition, Pioneer has implemented strict regulations for our staff in regards to their ability to be on the premises if they are feeling unwell. Please take a few minutes to read requirements below, and follow them to ensure that Pioneer remains a safe facility during this time. The state continues to refine guidelines and add/lift new restrictions so please stay tuned for any changes, as any of this is subject to change without much notice.

We continue to have limited capacity. Our business has been built on a foundation of safety and caring and we will continue to make decisions that deliver against that responsibility.

ALL classes and programs are running at a very limited capacity.


Social Distancing

  • All athletes and parents must remain at least six feet apart from others for the greatest extent possible.
  • Customers are asked to not enter the Pioneer Office. All interactions should be done phone or email. Cash and check payments should be limited. Please email us if this is the only form of payment, otherwise everything should be done on members.pioneergymnastics.com
  • All athletes over the age of 5 must wear a mask at all times in the facility. A mask break will be provided safely when needed. 
  • Any athletes under the age of 5 are strongly encouraged to wear a mask but it is not mandatory.
