Phases continue with Youth Classes

This week brought a slow stream of Adult members back into the gym and we had so much fun moving together. We are continuing our internal phases of Re-Opening by incorporating Youth Level 1 classes back on the schedule, as well as changes to our Training Time service! Continue reading to learn more.

Training Time changes:

  • Available to all Members ages 15+
  • Online advanced reservation required
  • Minors must be walked in by parent or legal guardian
  • Health Screen must be completed and passed before walking in the door on the day of your reservation

Service participation is being limited to new members or members who have not altered their payments. This now includes Adult Open Gym Memberships! If you have an active membership that applies, we have added Training Time access and you are now able to pre-enroll. Online reservations are required and no walk-ins will be permitted. Contact us if you’d like to re-activate your membership to access Training Time.

Youth Level 1 Classes:

  • Ages 10+
  • Available for members or $20 single visit Drop-Ins
  • Online advanced reservation required. No walk ins permitted at this time.
  • Classes capped at 5 students for now while we get our bearings. We will expand to 10 spaces in the future.
  • Minors must be walked in by parent or legal guardian each day
  • All forms and Health Screen must be completed and passed before walking in the door on the day of your reservation, otherwise class participation will not be permitted.
  • Please limit family members present during student drop off/pick up. Loitering in our lobby/lounge during class is not an option at this time due to occupancy limitations put on by our health department.

What is Training Time?

Given the complications that surround movement based indoor activities and social distancing requirements, we’ve created something like what Open Gym was, but with more structure. We want to bring Open Gym back as quickly as possible, but since we don’t have a time frame as to when that will be, we’re excited to introduce Training Time!

During Training Time hours, members may sign up for available spots in hour long brackets. Due to space restrictions, we are asking members to only sign up for a maximum of 2 back-to-back slots per day to ensure access to as many other members as possible.

The gym will be segmented into 5 movement zones, each with their own borders, movement obstacles, and participant volumes. Zones will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Travel between zones will be overseen by the gym supervisor, and at times, not permitted.

See you soon!

We are re-evaluating, planning, and implementing each and every day. Operating a business through Covid times is an always developing challenge. Thanks for sticking with us as we continue to navigate and adapt.

Re-Opening Update

To the Rochester Parkour Community

Dear RocPK Community,

After a very long hibernation, we are excited to share that RocPK will be reopening its doors soon!  Full credit of this accomplishment goes to the members and families that have chosen to maintain either partial or full monthly payments during this crisis. Quite literally, we would not be able to issue this statement today without them and we are forever grateful.

With that said, after parsing through the data and guidelines presented to us by NYS and Monroe County, the gym will be targeting a tentative reopening on August 1st. This date is still subject to change based on information provided to us from NYS. Still, we’ve been hard at work during this pause investing back into the space. You will be walking into a wonderfully updated gym when you and your family return! We’ll be sharing pictures of the new space soon!

This is exciting for sure, but there are still many new policies and procedures that must be followed in order to ensure that our reopening is responsible and calculated. As we are writing this press release, our parkour colleagues and other gym owners in California are drafting their notices to their members about their second mandated shut down. We are heavily invested in ensuring that their experience does not become ours.

New Policies

Our new policies are in the process of being finalized. We will be sending out that information once it is complete. Keep an eye on your inbox and our social media pages for updates! In the meantime, here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve received in the last couple of weeks:

  • Masks will be required by all persons within the RocPK Gym at all times until further notice
  • Classes will be shortened to 45 minutes to allow for a 15 minute intermission
  • Hand washing will be required prior to entry and periodically throughout services
  • Class participants or their parents will be required to complete a short screening survey before attending each class
  • There will be a limit of 1 parent or supervisor allowed in the lounge during a class service.  All other family members will be required to wait outside

Many of these policies have been mandated by NYS and Monroe County and adherence to them will be required in order to participate in any RocPK service.

Re-Opening Survey

Additionally, your voice can help ensure that our re-opening serves you and your family better by answering our short survey found here. Your answers to these questions will be used to nail down what classes fall on what days, how many classes we initially offer, what times fit your schedules best, as well as helping us ensure that our new policies are working to make you and your family feel safe. We cannot express enough how valuable your participation in this survey is!

Re-Opening Phases

The gym’s re-opening will be undergoing its own phased process. Initially, we are looking at starting back up our Adult and Youth programs, followed by our Kids program, and then finally our Tinies. The time-table of these phases has not been solidified, but is being implemented to ensure that our re-opening complies with local and State mandated procedures. We are waiting, in particular, on the scheduled release of school guidance in late July/ early August to develop our Kids and Tinies phase-in.

Our Summer Camps are still in flux. At the time of this writing, we’re looking at the possibility of offering at least one week of camp (or not at all) depending on the information we receive from the above survey. If you would value a camp offering, please let us know in the survey so we can solidify this asap!

We know that this is a lot to take in. We also know that it feels a little anticlimactic to have to do our own phased re-opening within a phased re-opening, but the outpouring of information we’ve received (especially in the last two weeks) is proving that this crisis is still serious and must be treated seriously. Despite the Governor’s phrasing of “New York on Pause”, it’s been made plainly obvious by our colleagues in California and elsewhere that we cannot just “push play” and resume like nothing happened. You, your family’s, and our community’s safety is our top-priority.

See You Soon!

To wrap this letter up, as we’ve said before: none of this could be done without you and none of this is worth it without you. We cannot wait to have you all back in the gym, moving your bodies, bettering your health and fitness, and playing again!

If you have any further questions about the information in this letter, please reach out to us and we will get back to you as quickly as we are able.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for your continued and ongoing support!

– The RocPK Team
