Learn to Skate Covid-19 Update - 19-Mar-2020
The current Coronavirus requirements mean that non-essential gatherings indoors must be kept at less than 100 people. After consultation with Mt Warren Sports Centre and Skate Queensland, we are able to continue our Learn to Skate program with some modifications in place.
Commencing immediately, we will be adjusting our Learn to Skate program to fit within the 100 person guideline. This means that:
There will be no session / general skate time and cost for the classes will be reduced to $4 per attendance – half price.
These classes will take place on Court 1 and all participating skaters and instructor must keep 1 – 1.5m distance at all times. Spectating parents are asked to sit with this social distancing method in mind.
Skaters in the first group can arrive between 9.30am – 9.45am and must leave the building immediately following the end of their class. Skaters in the second group should arrive between 10.15am – 10.30am, but will be asked by Centre staff to wait outside until the first group have vacated the building. They should also vacate the building immediately following their class.
Skaters who require assistance for balance (particularly Level 0) will require a parent to assist them. Instructors will maintain a ‘hands off’ policy and will not be able to assist directly, but can coach the parent in providing the appropriate support.
Learn to Skate participants should bring only 1 parent with them to assist in limiting the numbers of extra people in the building.
Any skater / family who have been overseas in the past 14 days will not be able to participate. Any skater / family who have had contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19 will not be able to participate. We will be screening participants on arrival in relation to this.
