Volpe Martial Arts Training Guidelines

(during Yellow/Orange/Red Levels of Ontario Covid-19 Framework)

  • Please only attend classes if you are completely healthy and free of COVID-19 symptoms and have not knowingly come in contact with someone who has been exposed to COVID-19.

  • As of July 13, 2020 the Region of Waterloo face covering by-law came into effect and every person over the age of 5 years old must wear a face covering when entering the academy. 

  • Face coverings will not be required during physical training.  Students wishing to wear a mask while training may do so provided they understand the challenges. Some of those challenges include but are not limited to: increased touching of the face to adjust masks, difficultly breathing and communication difficulties.

  • Please arrive right before the class start time and leave immediately after class has ended. Please arrive on time!

  • Whenever possible, we will be holding classes outdoors. Always come prepared to train outside for each class. This includes bringing appropriate footwear for training outside (please not “flip flop” style shoes). If the weather is poor, we will of course train inside while maintaining proper social distancing.

  • We will be using our main entry door to enter the academy and our back door (with the stairs) as an exit. Signs will be posted to help direct you.

  • Please come fully changed in your uniform or training clothes (the change rooms will be temporarily closed).

  • Upon entering the academy, all persons must sanitize their hands (using hand sanitizer).

  • Washrooms will continue to be available for emergency use only.

  • There will be no sharing of training equipment.

  • There will be no physical contact between students during classes.

  • Individuals in the academy must maintain a physical distance of 2 meters at all times. Students must maintain a physical distance of 3 meters while training.

  • A maximum of one parent/guardian per student under the age of 18 will be permitted to be inside the building.

  • Use of water fountains will temporarily not be available, please bring your own water bottle(s) from home.

  • Water bottles are to be filled at home and not shared.

Together and by taking the above measures we can work together to continue to learn and stay active during this time.
