COVID-19 UPDATES

REOPENING

Based on the recent AHS guidelines we are in Phase 2 of opening.

Premier Academy is closely monitoring all federal and provincial guidelines. We are committed to meeting or exceeding them. 

This information is only current at the time of writing and can change daily. For the most up-to-date information about COVID-19, please visit the Government of Canada and Alberta Health websites.

This is a dynamic situation, and we will continue following the recommendations of Alberta Health Services to make the best decisions to ensure the safety and health of our participants and staff.

SAFETY & CLEANING PRACTICES

  • All Premier Academy facilities will undergo an intensive, deep clean, before reopening.
  • We have invested in a spray and AHS Approved disinfectant for each facility to be used in the gym at the end of each day. When combined with our increased touchpoint disinfection and our cleaning program, this will ensure all our facilities receive a comprehensive, thorough cleaning every day.
  • We have an AHS approved disinfectant and contact sanitizer that will be used for frequent touchpoint cleaning throughout our clubs.
  • Our staff have adopted a “constantly cleaning” mind-set, ensuring special attention is always given to high-touch surfaces.
  • Staff and athletes are required to wipe down equipment AFTER each use. To make this convenient, additional spray bottles are strategically placed throughout the facilities.
  • Additional hand sanitizer has been made available at strategic locations throughout the facilities.
  • Closed Amenities:
    • Closure of the lobby and viewing area to parents to minimize capacity in the facilities.
    • Water fountains are only being used for water bottle fill-up stations. Members are encouraged to bring filled water bottles. Each facility will also have bottled water available to purchase.

CLASSES & TRAINING

  • All members are required to complete the Screening Questionaire EVERY DAY prior to attending a class or practice.
  • Athletes will enter through a specified door and exit through a different one to minimize contact between others.
  • Athletes will arrive no more than 10 minutes before their start time before entering the gym (and will only enter when signaled by the coach)
  • Athletes will not be permitted to “hang around” after class – it is up to the parents to be prompt on pick up times
  • All athletes will be required to wash and/or sanitize their hands upon entry into the facility and after participating before exiting the facility.
  • Classes: Social distancing will be maintained between athletes, and equipment will be sanitized before they are used by another athlete.
  • Teams: Social distancing and no stunting will be maintained until cohorts are established.
  • All Premier Academy coaches will be required to wear masks while spotting skills.

MANDATED FACILITY CLOSURES

In the event that Premier Academy is forced to close its facilities by way of a government mandate, Premier Academy will provide virtual training at the same monthly tuition fee during that period that Premier Academy’s facilities are mandated to close. Alternatively, Premier Academy will provide you the option to suspend your membership during a government-mandated closure of its facilities until the mandated closure is lifted, provided that a fee of $15 per month will be charged as an administrative fee. If you decide to cancel during a mandated closure, a cancellation fee equivalent to one month’s tuition will be charged, and any monthly tuition fee paid for the current month will be non-refundable.
