Getting back to training in the gym

We have been eagerly awaiting news on when we will be able to get back to training in the gym. As yet, there is still no clarification regarding children 12-15 years, which will obviously have a massive impact on our teams training. We expect more information will become available to us once NSW gets closer to the 70% double vaccination target.

The current guidelines from the government’s Reopening NSW roadmap are as follows: Stay-at-home orders for adults who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be lifted the Monday after NSW passes the 70% double vaccination target. The roadmap may change if circumstances change drastically or if cases within a designated area remain too high.

  • Only those who are fully vaccinated and those with medical exemptions will have access to the freedoms allowed under the Reopening NSW roadmap.

  • Gyms and indoor recreation facilities can open under the 1 person per 4sqm rule and can offer classes for up to 20 people.

  • Children aged under 12 will not need to wear a mask indoors.

What does this mean for Shire Elite?

Once we get an official date that we can re-open we will let you know as soon as possible. This is looking likely to be mid October. Please keep in mind that in regards to vaccination, we will be required to follow the rules set by the NSW government and it is not our decision whether those who are or are not vaccinated be allowed in the gym. To follow the 1 person per 4sqm rule, we will be running our team and tumble classes to begin with. For the size of our gym we will be able to run multiple classes at one time whilst keeping the class numbers to a max of 20 athletes. A timetable will be released once we have more information about re-opening.

After a partial return to the gym, we will continue our Fitness, Stretch and Flyers classes online until further restrictions are lifted.

We will of course also be following Covid Safe Guidelines for our coaches and athletes. If you have any further questions please get in touch. Be sure to keep an eye out for our Oct blog which will have more information on what’s coming up. It’s not too much longer until we’ll be back in the gym and we cannot wait to see everyone when the time comes! Kind Regards, The Shire Elite Team
