Message from our Director

I hope this message finds you, your family, and all the people you hold dear doing well.

The decision of when to reopen AcroSports is, in large part, a public health decision. We continue to reference www.sfdph.org or www.sf72.org and the CDC’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov as they are authorities in this matter.  AcroSports is taking the decision of when and how to open our doors very seriously.  You can be assured that we will have taken all the precautionary measures needed to ensure our community will be returning to a thoroughly safe environment before we reinstitute regular programs.

What AcroSports is doing to prepare for reopening:

·   Extensive cleaning and power washing of the main gym, including the application of two fresh coats of paint on the walls.

·   Replacing the foam in both the upstairs and downstairs pits.

·   Installing several industrial AIR Scrubbers to draw in air from the surrounding environment and pass it through filters, effectively scrubbing the air and removing any contaminants. As an added plus, these scrubbers also clean and deodorize areas where unpleasant odors may linger.

·   Increasing the number of accessible hand sanitizers throughout the building, in the office, and at the front desk. 

·  Installing Equipment Cleaning Stations on both floors, stocked with disinfectant wipes to wipe down equipment between uses.

· Regularly disinfecting and deodorizing equipment and carpet-bonded foam via recently purchased commercial disinfectant sprayers. 

See the Safety Standard Guidelines we are following here.

During this most critical phase of shelter in place, and as the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 continues to rise, students and families are urged to keep practicing the guidance provided by public health officers including:

  • Staying home and limiting essential activities where possible

  • Washing hands often with soap and water

  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

  • Contacting your healthcare provider if you experience any symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing

  • Wearing face coverings (but not medical-grade masks)

  • Adhering closely to social distancing guidelines

These are challenging and uncertain times, but I feel confident that as an organization and community, we can get through this together.

Update on AcroSports’ Reopening – September 2020

I hope all our Acro family and friends are doing as well as can be expected during this wildly unpredictable time! Here at AcroSports, we are continually wondering how it can be that Friday, March 13th - the day we officially closed programming - simultaneously seems like only yesterday, and also a vast eternity ago.

PPP Loan Report

AcroSports was fortunate to receive a PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loan in mid-April. A component of the CARES Act passed by Congress, the PPP loans are fully “forgivable,” as long as their expenditure falls within certain parameters, with the emphasis being to employ as many people as possible, thus lessening the burden of the growing rolls of people on Unemployment. Your tax dollars at work!

August 2020 Zipline

Since closing our doors on March 13th, we have received an unprecedented amount of support from the AcroSports community! Many thanks to all of you who have given donations of both cash and existing class credit; this has made a significant impact on our ability to reopen, as well as our continued viability as a business overall.

Important Update Regarding Use of Class Credits Upon our Reopening

Many families currently have AcroSports class credit on file, both as a result of our COVID-related closure, as well as existing account credits from prior to the pandemic. Many thanks to all our students and families who were able to receive account credits instead of cash refunds due to the shutdown, as this has significantly helped to ensure our ability to reopen.

Sweet Letters

I almost forgot about these sweet letters. I was rummaging through one of my drawers at home and stumbled upon a pile of notes from some of my former AcroSports students. I reread them. And then, I smiled.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

All AcroSports classes, camps and events have been canceled through the end of summer 2020. We are continually tracking news and information about the spread of COVID-19 in our region and adhering to recommended public safety guidelines. Please check this page regularly for updated information about the status of AcroSports programming.

Did you know you can donate your class credit?

Your donations reduce our outstanding credits, which total over $100,000, and offer much needed support during these unprecedented times.
