What are you doing to keep people safe during coronavirus?
We continue to keep safety a top priority during COVID 19. We are still requiring adults to wear masks when in the facility. Children doing gymnastics do not have to wear a mask, as we do not want to put undue strain on their cardiovascular system. If you would like to voluntarily show us your vaccine card, we can give you a special band that will allow you to leave your mask at the door. As soon as we feel we can safely let go of these measures, we will do so.
We have a thermometer/temperature check at the entrance of the facility, and we require that anyone experiencing sick symptoms stay home. We use frequent hand sanitizer and have them strategically placed throughout the building. We also sanitize equipment following classes and at the end of each day.
We do require anyone with a direct exposure to COVID 19 to remain outside of our facility for 14 days to monitor for symptoms. We also promise to inform you of any direct exposure that you may have to a COVID 19 positive individual in our classes. If an exposure were to occur, we do require quarantine outside of our facility.
What makes you different than any other gym?
We offer gymnastics instruction, but we focus on coaching the entire person. We feel that we are helping to develop young people in mind, body and soul, not just sport. We focus on a family atmosphere, where we want everyone to feel welcome.
Do any of your coaches have special gymnastics experience?
Coach Santiago has over 25 years experience in the gymnastics world. He is originally from Dominican Republic, and has experience competing in World Gymnastics Championships, Central American Games, Pan American Games, and College Gymnastics. He was Athlete of the Year 5 years in a row for Dominican Republic.
Coach Katlyn reached and competed Level 9 before injury stopped her from continuing. She first met Coach Santiago training under him in the sport, and is now getting experience coaching with him.
Coach Nathalia competed in the Olympics for Colombia and is currently competing on Exatlon on Telemundo.
Why should we come to your gym?
You will not find a gym or a youth facility in the Central Florida area that cares more about your child or your family, than UFFG does. It is a family, and a home away from home.
