Privileges For Teens And Pre-teen Members

Teens, tweens, and everyone in between are welcome at the Y. Your membership is the first step to meeting new friends, playing sports, getting in shape to feel great and reaching athletic goals. We’ve created the following guidelines to ensure a safe, fun and successful environment for all Y members.

Middle School Members (Grades 6-8)

When you are with a parent or guardian, middle school members can be anywhere in the Y (including Wellness Center, gymnasium, pool, racquetball courts and track). If you are ready for a little independence, this Middle School Orientation and two uFit appointments will help you feel more comfortable in the building and help you reach your wellness goals. The Middle School Orientation and two uFit follow-up sessions allow you to use the Wellness Center without your parents, as well as participate in Group Exercise Classes where no weighted equipment is used.
