  • Parents and children over the age of 10 wear a mask upon entering the building. 
  • Instructors and parents (if staying to watch) will need to wear a masks the entire program
  • Kids use hand sanitizer upon entering the room 
  • No equipment will be shared and students will remain socially distanced through out the programming 
  • All students will be required to sanitize hands when dismissed back to the parents
