A post on the the Make it or Break it thread got me wondering. How much cleaning of the gym & equipment, does your gym require the gymnasts do(if any)? It's just always been accepted practice at our gym, like chores at home. The last practice group of the night sets up the equipment for the morning classes. This can be time consuming & it's late at night. Then in the summer they do deep cleaning(mat washing, etc), including cleaning out the foam pit! Now that was digusting let me tell you! Do other gyms require this of their gymnasts? I've never complained, but when it's getting close to 10pm & the girls all have school the next day I do get annoyed. And the pit thing...well that was just plain gross. I think they should hire a biohazard company to clean that out! Interested to hear how other gyms handle these situations.
