New COVID-19 Proceedures
All City of Airdrie facilities, including Genesis Place, have made the decision to be a part of the restrictions exemption program as of September 20th, 2021. The government has decided though, that youth activity is exempt from showing proof of vaccination for entry - as long as they are at the facility to engage in youth sport.
What this means for us:
-ALL coaches need to have proof of at least their first vaccination to be able to participate in class. As of October 25th, 2021, proof of both doses of vaccine need to be shown in order to access the building. The exceptions to this are a negative PCR test or an official medical exception.
-Athletes under 18 will not have to show proof of vaccination and just need to let the staff member know that they are attending baton practice.
-With that being said, we have found that some athletes are still being asked to show vaccination cards - so migt be best to have the along with you in case.
-Entrances that will be open are ONLY the fitness and aquatic doors for now - please enter at one of these entrances.
DayBreak Commuity Church:
The church has decided NOT o do the restriction exemption program. Even if thy had chosen this program, our athletes under 18 would be exempt due to them attending a youth activity.
What this means for us:
-Classes will be restricted to 1/3 capacity of the space - which all of our classes comply with.
-Self-screen for symptoms before attending - much like you do for school.
-Maintain 2 m distancing, except youth while engaged in physical activity.
-Wear a mask, except youth while engaged in physical activity.
We completely understand that this is a tricky issue. Since ASHT rents from facilities in order to train our athletes, in order to continue training, we must each follow each facility's guidelines. If your personal family choice does not align with the decision made at your athlete's given facility, please let us know as soon as possible.

Q. How old does my child have to be to twirl?
A. We can accommodate all ages 3 and up!
Q. Where do I buy a baton?
A. Jeanette at East Side Sports is a pro at measuring and fitting your child with the correct baton for them.
Q. Can I try it out to see if my child likes it prior to committing to a season?
A. The 8 week program is a perfect fit for athletes who want to give it a try!
Q. Why are the monthly fees the same even for months with fewer classes?
A. Fees are calculated for the entire year and then divided monthly for ease of payment therefore some months will have fewer classes (e.g. Sept. and Dec.) and some will have more!
COVID-19 has changed our world, and the sport of baton twirling is no exception.
ASHT will be following the government guidelines along with our venues’ rules with regard to COVID19. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be on hand. Masks are to be worn in and out of our venues and your twirler is welcome (but it is not mandatory) to wear one while twirling if they chose.
