In early March 2020 the nation, the world, faced unprecedented times when the novel virus, Covid-19, entered our daily lives. Businesses were closed, families began to shelter in place, and the world united to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of the virus that does not yet have a cure or vaccine. Over the course of several months, families adjusted their lives and businesses were propelled into developing new ways to serve their clients, maintain their business, and, above all, keep people safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.
GymStars, Inc. is proud to report that we continue to do our part to curb the spread of the virus. It hasn't been easy for anyone. We have had to make difficult decisions quickly. Within weeks we had converted our in-gym classes to live, on-line courses for kids to participate, learn, stay active, and engage with their coaches. These classes were also recorded and made available to those unable to attend the live classes or for kids to take class multiple times a week to supplement physical education classes they were no longer to attend in school. Over the course of time, and always in adherence to the State's orders and CDC guidelines, we were simultaneously learning of the best practices our business should adopt to continue our part in reducing the spread of the virus and to remain safe for employees and customers.
As the nation continues to be vigilant in putting safety first while balancing the importance of phasing into opening our country, so does GymStars. Again, in accordance to the Governor of California's orders, aligned with the CDC's guidelines, and after implementing new health and safety protocols, we have taken the Stockton Healthy Pledge and are ready to reopen in a phased manner.
As of June 18, 2020, as ordered by the Governor of California, masks are required inside public buildings. Physical distancing while performing recreational class skills will allow for unmasking for proper breathing.
As of July 14, 2020, as ordered by the Governor of California and the San Joaquin County Health Department, GymStars classes needed to re-close, but week and day camps are still allowable and in-session.
For more information, please view our Instructional Program Standards and Day Camp Standards and our Phased Opening by Classes below:
Phase 1 We have opened to provide Competitive Camps and Summer Day Camps for the Summer. These camps are open to our existing competitive kids for. Comp Camp and the Summer Day Camps are open to the general public, not required to be a member of GymStars to attend. Camps will be open with limited occupancy.

The camp link will direct you to a form to complete. Please list any specific date, time, hours needed and we will adjust billing appropriately. All camp submissions are reviewed daily by our staff. You will be notified of camp entrance by phone or email.
Phase 2 includes an opening to all recreational classes. At this time we are not in a Phase 2 opening. When this time comes, we will take a cautious and purposeful approach to opening. At the time that we do open as part of Phase 2, we will encourage all members to visit the Parent Portal to view times and dates for in-gym classes.
Phase 3 TBA. We will notify members by email and will keep the general public aware via this website as well as our social media pages. Phase 3 includes opening all our enrichment activities such as Teddy Bear Picnics, Funtaculars, Kids' Play Nights and are well-loved Birthday Parties and Special Events.
