What is a Youth Add-On?
A Youth Add-On is a child currently in the seventh or eighth grade that is added to his/her parent's account. A Youth Add-On can go on the fitness floor, to group fitness classes or in the indoor pool or gymnasium and racquetball courts, so long as he/she is accompanied by a parent at all times. The parent must be in the same area as the Youth Add-On. The Youth Add-On is not permitted in the locker rooms.
Once the Youth Add-On reaches the age of 15 or enters the ninth grade, he/she can use the facility on his/her own.
Becoming A Youth Member
Any youth second to sixth grade is eligible to become a Youth Member. Each Youth Member will fill out an application and Fitness Screening Questionnaire prior to joining. Upon acceptance, the Youth Member will receive a new membership card and have his/her picture taken for the personal account.
The Youth Member Difference
The Youth Membership is not a regular Wellness Center membership. Youth Memberswill be given limited access to the facility through participation in age-specific group fitness classes or extracuricular clubs. Each group fitness class is taught by a certified personal trainer or group fitness instructor to encourage proper technique and help with injury prevention.
Youth Members will be divided into two groups, ages 7 to 10 and 11 to 14 to ensure that the teachings and activities are engaging and appealing to the participants.
