Gymnastics Revolution continues to move forward with reopening, within the safety regulations and guidelines of both The State of Connecticut and the CDC. Following our outdoor classes (Stage One), we moved our programming back indoors. (Stage Two) On September 8, 2020 we began Stage Three of our reopening, and have now, as of May 1, 2021, moved to Stage Four.
When you are ready, we are ready for you!

AddiWhat we’ve learned from the Pandemic:
- Our time is limited.
- Relationships with family, friends, mentors, students, teammates and coworkers are fragile
- Family comes first.
- You must enjoy the journey.
- You must work relentlessly toward goals
- The world is ever-changing. We must change with it.
- Let go of the things that are no good for you.
- Hold tightly the things that are.
Over the past year, many things have become evident. As coaches, we know to find the good in every situation, and to learn from every experience. We teach it every day. The Pandemic has driven home some of these values, in a very real, very deep way, and we have determined to move forward with those lessons in mind.
“Just get back to what we used to do” is not an option. That would mean ignoring the silver linings the Pandemic delivered to us. Instead, we vow to “get better at what we used to do.” We vow to evolve. Find new ways. Embrace the things we learn. To be fluid.
There are those who want to simply erase the past months, and return to normal. There are those who look for a “new normal.” We find ourselves in a place where we must take the lessons we have been given, and apply them. We move forward. We forge ahead. We make the best decisions we can, always with the best of intentions, and we vow to continue teaching these same lessons. A cartwheel. A global lockdown. A flip. An economic meltdown. The children we work with every day recognize that each of these items are simply something to work through, to push through, to gather experience, and to overcome. We are reopening Gymnastics Revolution because this is what we do.
What happens next?
While we cannot both be open to the public and also prevent 100% of all germs from spreading, we are proud and confident in the policies and procedures we have put in place that meet or exceed all government recommendations and CDC guidelines. For these precautions to be as effective as possible, the support and participation of the entire Gymnastics Revolution community are required.
We are so excited to be unshuttering and back to doing what we do. Gymnastics Revolution has taken a stance that we describe as “aggressively conservative.”
During our Fourth Stage of reopening, we will be monitoring the health of our staff and students. Parents should take the temperature of their student before coming to class, and keep a close eye on their children. Our equipment is sanitized regularly, and students will use hand sanitizer. Additionally, we require students to arrive dressed for their class, with water bottles from home, and ready for action. Family members are asked to stay home, save for one spectator per participant. All people in the building must wear a mask.
