Covid Re-opening Policies

Per the MN Department of Health (updated 3/14/2021) - all staff, participants and clients must wear a case mask at all times while in the building. If there is a safety concern related to wearing a mask during a specific skill or event, the gymnast may remove their mask at the direction of their coach.


  • All individuals entering Shooting Stars will have their temperature taken and will be asked a series of COVID symptom related questions. Shooting Stars reserves the right to ask individuals to leave the facility if they are running a fever and/or based on their response to the questionnaire.
  • Pursuant to Executive Order 20-81 only 1 spectator per participating child will be permitted.
  • We encourage parents to utilize curbside drop off if possible. We are not able to allow children out into the parking lot alone after dark as a safety precaution. They must wait inside until someone comes in to pick them up.
  • Lost and found items will no longer be kept. Any items left behind at the end of the night will be disposed of immediately.


  • There is a no touch policy in place at all times, except for coaches spotting.
  • Gymnasts need to bring their own labeled water bottle to class. 
  • Sanitizer for hands and/or hand washing will be utilized between every rotation as well as at the beginning and end of classes.
  • Training areas will be designated for each group to ensure appropriate social distancing.
  • If your child is currently being quarantined from school due to a positive COVID result from themselves, a classmate or staff, they should not return to Shooting Stars until the duration of the quarantine is over.
  • The MN Department of Health is currently recommending those that travel outside of the State of Minnesota to quarantine for 14 days upon their return.  Please review the potential shortened quarantine period here: If you have any questions, please ask!
  • We will be utilizing the MN Department of Health's decision tree for Covid related symptoms and clarification on individual's ability to participate. You can find the decision tree here:


  • All staff will complete a wellness check prior to their shift and will stay home if they are feeling ill.
  • Coaches will observe strict guidance on space limitations with their groups.
  • Hands are to be washed and/or sanitized after each rotation as well as at the start and end of their shift.
