The President’s Council original 15 day closure of gyms, restaurants, etc. ends on March 31st. Cobb County has now also provided guidelines to be followed through April 15th which do not specifically address gyms. They do say restaurants may be open for takeout or delivery only to limit exposure and all “non-essential businesses” should only operate from 6am – 9pm and practice social distancing protocols.

Obviously, we cannot run practices and maintain distancing. Some wrestling facilities are running private sessions or small groups, but I do not want to put myself and Wysmark in a situation where we are making contact with multiple people and potentially spreading the virus.
However since the goal is to limit exposure, starting April 1st through April 15th, I am going to allow one or two people at a time to book the gym for 1hr increments. This will be available 6 days a week (closed on Saturday) from 10am – 7pm. They can wrestle on the mats or use the equipment. How this will work:
  • You must book ahead of time online to use the gym on the calendar at http://levelupwrestling.com/schedule/. You must give at least an hour notice to make sure we are there. These will be 1 hour time-slots. 45 min + a 15 min gap in between to prevent exposure to others and give us time to clean and disinfectant.
  • You can come as many days a week as you want. If you pre-book a time and cannot make it, please let me know ASAP via text at 404-259-7372 so I can open the spot for others.
  • Myself or Wysmark will be there to have the gym open, but will maintain safe distance. We can provide coaching from a far, but will not be officially running the sessions or making contact. We will have a suggested format and practice schedule if you need it. So basically, you get the benefit of a coach helping, but with social distancing.
  • Will it cost anything?
    • This will be included free if you have active membership
    • If you have 6 pack drop-in credits already, each session will use a credit just like a practice
    • Non-member Drop ins will be $20 like any other class
  • Parents should ideally remain in the car or at least maintain social distancing
  • Obviously you will not be allowed in if you are showing symptoms or were recently in contact with someone diagnosed with the COVID-19.
  • If you have any issues booking time, please text me at 404-259-7372
These things change daily and I am always open for suggestions. I will continue to do my best to make facilities, coaching and mentoring available to keep your children engaged and healthy.

Starting April 16th (unless the COVID-19 situation dictates otherwise), the following will be our schedule:

Open Sessions: Mon & Wed 6 – 7:30pm; Tues & Thurs 6:30 – 8:15; Sun 3 – 4:30pm
