CHICO, Calif. -- Gymnasts are jumping back on the beam at Athletic Horizons Gymnastics Center.

“I was very sad. I even had dreams of gymnastics for a little bit and it was weird because I was used to being so active and it’s hard to get motivation when you don’t have a coach to tell you to go for it,” said gymnast Larissa Robinson

In order to bring gymnasts like Larissa back the Center had to rewrite 38 years of lesson plans.

“We were closed starting in March and we just reopened last week so it’s really important that everyone follows these guidelines so everybody can stay healthy and we can stay open,” said manager and Coach Kelsey Bughao

Because of the coronavirus, its plans include temperature checks, face masks, one way traffic, social distancing and more.

“While the kids are actually taking their turns. We’re not requiring them to wear a mask because they are apart from everyone,” said Bughao. “We want to follow those guidelines, but also keep kids safe [during this heat wave.]”

The center is operating at a limited capacity and is only allowing three classes at one time and only six students in each. They're wiping down every piece of equipment, every time it’s used.

“They were very organized when I came back and I didn’t know what to expect. They put markers out on the floor, we’re 6 feet apart, they were very prepared and I feel safe,” said Robinson.

The Center says it follows local, state and U-S-A Gymnastic guidelines. At least a hundred gymnasts signed up and there is still open spaces available, including private lessons.
