June 1st - Aug 13th: Summer Session
NOW - Open Registration Online
Aug 31st: First Day of Fall Session
Welcome to Mercury Gymnastics
Hello to all my Mercury Families,
The health and well- being of our students and families continues to be our FIRST priority, and NOW that we have learned of all the processes for fall classes in school - it is NOW time for our Fall gymnastic session to begin. We look forward to reconnecting with everyone that attended the summer session and all our new gymnasts enrolling this Fall.
I would like to share our guidelines for our preschool, school age boys and girls, tumbling, cheer, tramp & tumbling, our pre-competitive programs and our team boys and girls.
Listed below are just a few of the many things we have done to reach our goals for reopening in the summer. These guidelines will also follow us into the fall session. The health and safety of our gymnasts and staff will always be number one. Clean gym, Clean staff, Clean gymnasts.
On the Preschool side starting August 31st - ONE family member or family friend will be allowed into the gym with their preschooler ages 5 and under. We have added a few more Mini Moon classes and one Mini Mini Moon class. One family or friend member will be allowed in our Mini Moon programs also.
On the School age, tramp & tumbling, cheer and pre-competitive side families will participate in our drop off/pick up car loop. This will be monitored by a Mercury staff member making sure that when your gymnast exits the car they will be guided safely into Mercury front foyer doors. Please try to be 5 minutes early to drop off your gymnast before their class.
Competitive teams will follow the same drop off and pick up procedures from the summer session.
Upon entering, your gymnast will check in,-take off shoes, hand sanitize and be guided to their coaches table for class.
All boys and girls will need to bring a labeled water bottle. The drinking fountains will be closed for safety at this time.
Unfortunately our concession stand will remain closed until more restrictions are lifted.
All our Mercury coaches and staff will wear masks at all times. Gymnasts will not be required to wear a mask unless you as parent feel that it is in your child’s best interest to wear one during class time.
Our lesson plans have been modified for individual stations. Each gymnast will work at his or her station for 1 minute or longer and then switch to their next station. Coaches will continue to assist our gymnasts with any challenging stations whenever needed. There will be all kinds of fun squares and dots and activities to SAFELY guide our gymnasts around the gym. All classes have been organized so that there is no waiting in line.
Hand washing and hand sanitizing will be done at the beginning of class, after each event and at the end of night before exiting the building. All soap and hand sanitizers are EDC approved for children.
All families will be asked to accept our updated waiver which includes a COVID-19 section recommendation. Along with all our coaches and staff, we agree not to enter the building within 24 hours of a fever, a cough, adhering to the 14 day quarantine period if someone in your household has or had COVID 19, and acknowledging that even with our BEST intentions, there will be times when incidental contact breaks the 6 foot separation recommendation.
At the end of practice, coaches will check them out, hand sanitize and release them to families at the exit door. The exit door for all our gymnasts will be located at the Southwest door. Again, the coach will make sure your gymnast is safely guided to your family. There are purple stars along the sidewalks for you to wait for your child. As our Fall session gets closer all procedures will be outlined in greater detail.
Each coach will have tissues, hand sanitizer and a bottle of EDC disinfectant that they will be responsible for cleaning equipment and mats before moving to their next event. As a team, we are still working on the best possible night time sanitizing after everyone has exited the building. All our disinfectants are EDC approved to kill not only the Covid virus but any other virus out there. We will also have our nightly cleaning crew each night.
We know that these changes will take some getting used to. In the meantime, we hope that we can remain an important part of your family’s schedule and provide a positive, supportive and healthy learning environment.
Now, for the FUN part – let’s get REGISTERED FOR FALL CLASSES! WE ARE BACK TO THE GYM AND READY TO DISCOVER THE “SUPER” IN ALL OF US! Your support and kind thoughts have been so important moving forward and so appreciated.
PRIORITY registration for families enrolled in the summer session will begin Monday, July 27th at 9:00 AM.
Registration will be open to the public beginning Thursday, July 30th at 9:00 AM
Fall schedules will be available for preview the weekend before priority registration. Please check your emails and our website for further information.
Make sure you log into your parent portal since it has changed. This will allow you to make sure all your family information is up to date and your credit card is current. Search for classes by your student. This will let you know if age requirements are met for the classes. There will be a cart timer set for 10 minutes. Watch this time because it will time out after 10 minutes and you will lose your spot if your transaction is not complete.
Remember, at this time, there will be limited spots in each class until our ratio limits are increased – if you do not get into the class you want – DEFINITELY put your child on the wait list and we will adjust classes and times as needed..
I will continue to send out any updates as changes will happen. All of us at Mercury Gymnastics have been working diligently to make sure when we open for FALL, Monday, August 31st, we will be clean, we will be safe and we will have a plan in place to make sure our gymnasts are well cared for, having fun and learning the BEST gymnastic skills out there.
As always, if you have any questions please email or for personal questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I may not have the right answer, but I will work hard to figure it out.
It is time for our Fall session. Cannot wait to see all our gymnasts participating in our beautiful sport.
Mercury Gymnastics opened its doors in 1998 with the mission of providing a positive environment where young people can enhance their gymnastic, trampoline & tumbling, cheerleading skills and fitness in a safe and fun manner in our 25,000 square foot facility. We encourage and challenge every young person to achieve their "personal best" by strengthening their bodies, their self-esteem and their confidence. Mercury offers you and your children a clean, safe, and fun environment and the highest quality coaching staff in the Kansas City area.
Mercury Gymnastics also offers Shining Stars Academic Preschool. Our goal is to provide your child with an enjoyable educational experience, equip them with the skills they need for future schooling, encourage their individual learning style, and offer an inviting atmosphere where your child feels at ease. Our learning approach is a hands-on investigative learning program where children explore academics through various themes and projects. When children can recognize for themselves when and how to apply numerous skills - it fosters independence, builds confidence, allows them the ability to make decisions and problem solve.
