Safety is a Top Priority at AGF

Provided below are COVID-19 Return to Play Guidelines and supporting documents for Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF) member clubs. These have been developed in accordance with Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services guidelines and public health orders. They include requirements that clubs must implement as part of their reopening strategy to ensure the safe, responsible, and low-risk delivery of operations, training, and programs. 
 
DISCLAIMER: The guidelines provided below can change at any time due to the ongoing and rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19. Changes may include cautious advancement or reversions based on advice from the Alberta Government, Alberta Health Services and/or Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer. We ask that clubs check back frequently and keep an eye out for email notifications from AGF. Clubs found to be in violation of public health orders are not only subject to fines imposed by law enforcement but will also be placed under administrative suspension by AGF.
