IMPORTANT UPDATE | Masks Must Be Worn Indoors

Following updated health advice from the Western Australian Government and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Gymnastics WA would like to clarify the requirements regarding mask wearing, especially within an indoor facility.

The Government has confirmed late this afternoon that it will be mandatory as a Condition of Entry for all people, excluding primary and preschool age children, to wear masks at all times whilst indoors, unless eating, drinking or swimming. These measures are in place across the Perth and Peel regions for the period of 12:01am Saturday 1st May - 12:01am 8th Saturday 8th May 2021.

This updated advice requires all athletes, coaches and administration staff to wear masks indoors whilst training or competing, which may not be feasible for Gymnastics Clubs.

Gymnastics WA understands the difficulty this may present within a club environment and we urge for the community to follow common sense, keeping the athlete's safety at the forefront of all activities and decisions. Please adapt lesson plans to ensure athletes are training in a safe environment whilst following all government requirements.
