Throughout the pandemic, Advantage Gymnastics Academy has adapted to ever-changing guidance to help keep our community as safe as possible.   Effective October 25th, we will continue to do so by following King County’s Vaccine Verification Order.   We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we implement this new step in our safety protocols.

Beginning on October 25th, all Advantage customers who are 12-years and older will be asked to show verification that they are fully vaccinated prior to participating in any gym activities.  Alternatively, customers may show documentation of a negative PCR test within 72-hours of entering the facility.  This is a requirement for our business, along with all other indoor youth sports facilities in King County.

Please see the following details for more information.

ATHLETES 12-YEARS AND OLDER

Parents or athletes are asked to present documentation of their completed vaccine series on or before October 25th.  Anyone who has not been vaccinated, or does not wish to present information pertaining to vaccination, may opt to show a negative PCR test taken within 3 days of each visit.

PARENTS, SIBLING AND GUESTS

Parents, siblings, and any other guests who are 12-years or older that wish to remain in the building to participate in activities, or view classes, team practices, or events, must also present proof of vaccination or a negative test result.  This includes parents and caregivers who are attending our drop-in events, such as Tumble Tots or Indoor Playground.

Adults who enter the building briefly to drop off or pick up their children, or shop in our store, are not required to present proof of vaccination.  If you wish to stay in the facility for any other purpose, please have your verification information available.

Outdoor viewing is available for parents who do not wish to present either form of documentation.

PROOF OF VACCINATION OR NEGATIVE TEST RESULT

Please submit one of the following:

·       CDC vaccination card or photo of the card

·       Documentation of proof of vaccine from your medical provider or vaccine administrator

·       Printed certificate or QR code from MyIRmobile

Proof of vaccination can be emailed to info@advantagegym.com or presented in person.  The requirement begins on October 25th, but you may submit your information prior to that date.  Customers enrolled in any recreational class or team program will only need to provide their vaccination information once.

As an alternative to proof of vaccination, customers may present documentation of a negative test result within the previous 72 hours.  This must be presented at each visit.
