Our Plan

Good hygiene and surface cleaning is one of the most affective methods of preventing the spread of COVID-19. 

In addition to regular and thorough surface cleaning of all common areas (doors, tables etc.), gymnastics clubs will also need to ensure the regular cleaning of gymnastics equipment, per manufacturers guidelines. 

Gymnastics NSW encourage the regular hand sanitising and cleaning of athletes hands before and after they participate on gymnastics equipment. 

Gymnastics NSW acknowledge that our sport utilises a wide variety of diverse equipment, with their own unique cleaning needs.

Gymnastics NSW will follow the cleaning recommendations of equipment set by the manufacturers.
