EVOLVEkids takes the safety of your child very seriously. As such, we have implemented the best practices of USA Gymnastics and the United States Tumbling & Trampoline Association, and followed guidelines from the IDPH and CDC, to maintain a safe gym environment.


Here are the rules we have implemented for the Fall/Spring 2020-21 schedule:

  • If your child is sick or not feeling well, do not bring them to class. We have no problem arranging a make up class. If we determine that a child appears to be ill (coughing, sneezing, fever, etc.) then we will be sending the child home in the interest of everyone's safety.

  • Entry in and out of the building is limited to the back door on Depot St. You can no longer enter via Logo Works or the front door of EVOLVEkids.

  • Classes are spaced so their is a 10 minute gap between classes so students can enter and exit socially distanced.

  • We ask that you do not drop off your child any earlier than 5 minutes prior to class.

  • At this time, we are not allowing parents (or any visitors) in the lobby during class. Our lobby is only for Drop Off & Pick Up of students. This applies to the lobby of the batting cages as well. If possible, do not bring siblings or friends with when dropping off or picking up your child.

  • You must wear a mask when entering and exiting EVOLVEkids. Students will remove their mask and store it in their cubby prior to entering the gym area. Masks are not worn during class.

  • Non-students (parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.) are not permitted in the gym area. If you have a question for the instructor, please message Heidi thru Facebook or call her at (815) 416-9580. Heidi will respond to your message or call ASAP.

  • Please have your child thoroughly wash their hands before class. The CDC recommends 20 seconds of washing with soap and water.

  • Please have your child bring their "gear" (masks, shoes, clothes, ponytail holder, etc.) with them in a bag which can be then stored in a cubby in our lobby during class.

  • Please have your child bring water with them to class. We are not providing water for sale as we usually do.

After using similar guidelines in June & July, we had great success with keeping all of you safe. With our clean gym and you following the above rules, we are confident that EVOLVEkids is a safe and healthy environment for your child.


If you have any questions about our COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan, please do not hesitate to call Heidi Lawless, EVOLVEkids Owner, at (815) 416-9580.
