Covid Re-opening Policies

Effective June 25th, 2020: Masks are required to be warn at Shooting Stars Gymnastics pursuant to Executive Order 20-81. Gymnasts may remove their masks during their class time. Children 5 and under are not required to wear a mask per the Order. Coaches may remove their mask when the level of exertion makes it difficult to wear a mask or causes the mask to get wet. If you have an underlying condition that makes wearing a mask difficult you are not required to wear a mask per the Order.


  • 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.

  • We will reduce the number of spectators in the viewing area for social distancing purposes.
