Member Survey results showed a higher desire to return to training compared to the recreational program.
Squad gymnasts train a higher number of hours so will require more time to get back to their post-COVID-19 fitness levels.
Ability to ensure compliance with these squads before adding other classes.
Squads use less hand apparatus and are able to remain on a single piece of equipment and work multiple skills with limited physical contact.
