Get Your Kids Active at the Wellness Center!
Ideas of things to do with children under age 14 at the Wellness Center
Anyone under the age of 14 is required to be directly supervised by someone 18 or older while in the facility. Those under 14 are allowed in the racquetball court, gymnasium, pool, group exercise classroom and on the walking/jogging track with direct adult supervision. We have a variety of equipment available for use. If you don’t see what they’d like to play with, just ask. We may have it!
This is a recent addition for children so there is an active option while parents are working out on the cardio/strength floor. Children may walk or jog on the track and need to be mindful of those around them. We typically say age 5 is a starting age for being able to walk or jog while caregivers work out on equipment, but you are the best judge of your child. Many members who use the track are unstable on their feet and you don’t want your child responsible for a fall. The track lines do act as the boundary. Children are not allowed on the black floor.

Hours for children age 14 – 18 years old at the WC
Children 14-18 may use the Wellness Center without adult supervision with parental approval. It is the parent’s responsibility to set up a time to get a keytag for the child that is of age on the family membership. If a keytag has not been set up, we will assume they do not have parental approval. There is not staff on duty at all times. If you do not trust your children to act as adults, they should not be granted access. Current hours for Fitness Center & Pool are listed below.
