What is the fitness class schedule?

The fitness class schedule will be available by mid-November and will include classes that we currently offer and new classes.  ‚Äč Your FitPass and PlusPass will grant access to land based classes at ARC, Camelot, Pioneer, and Recreation.  There are specialized land based classes that do require registration.  Those classes are not included with the FitPass and PlusPass and are listed in our seasonal program guide.

Can you explain how pickle ball admissions will work?

Drop in pickle ball will be available at set times on some days and evenings.  Drop in pickle ball at ARC and Pioneer is included as a value in your SplashPass, FitPass, or PlusPass.  You can also pay the daily drop fee of $3 for a resident or $5 for a non-resident.  Drop in pickle ball is not included in the $24 per year track/gym pass.  Leagues and instruction classes will be available for an additional fee.

I'm curious about childcare. What can you tell me about the service, staff, and hours?

Child care is available for 4 weeks to 11 year olds. Childcare is included as an added value to your membership. If you are not a member, you can pay a daily fee of $3 per hour. Parent/guardian must remain on-site. 2 hours max.

Hours are:

Monday – Thursday        9am-1pm & 5:00-8:00pm

Friday                              9am-1pm

Saturday                          8am-12:30pm

Childcare staff will be college age staff or older.  Staff will be CPR certified.  There will be a minimum of two staff in the room at a time.  The service is designed to allow for a parent to get in a workout and allow from their child to be in a safe comfortable space with opportunities to watch TV, play games, make crafts, and socialize with other children.  Drop off and pick up is very fluid and staff need to be present in the room to control the in and out of children.  Children will not go outside or into the gym.  The room has an electronic lock on the door that can be released from the main desk which is across the lobby or from inside the room.  There is a small drop off pick up area that is separated from the childcare room by a half door that is locked.  Staff will open and close the half door to allow for children to come in and leave.  There will be check in and check out procedures.  Staff will not change diapers.  If that is needed, one of the staff will find the parent and ask them to come back to room to change their child.

A family PlusPass includes all the SplashPass and FitPlus amenities which includes open gym and track.  Open gym would include drop in pickle ball.

However, without this pass yes, there are daily fees for open gym, pickleball, swimming, fitness, and track.

Does the FITpass include all of the adult fitness classes currently included in the Gold PlayPass membership? The FITpass seems like a cheaper option ($23/mo vs $35/mo) but I want to ensure all of my current classes will be included.Thank you.

Yes.  We are happy to offer this great value to our residents.

What ages can use the ARC? For example, I know my 3 and 5 year old can use the facilities covered by a SplashPass, but I don't know whether they could use the FitPass amenities, and whether our family could/would use a PLUSPass or not.

Ridge Fitness Center will be open to those 14 and over and will be available for those 11 to 13 year olds who are supervisor by a parent/guardian and also have taken an orientation session with a parent/guardian.  Children under 10 and under will have access to open gym with Plus, Fit, or SpalshPasses and will have access to swimming with Plus or SplashPass options.

My daughter is 18 and will be away at college 32 weeks/year. I want a family membership, but it looks like we could not have three >18 family members. Would you consider including >18 with student ID in family membership or adding a college rate?

Yes.  That is an override we can do at our desk with proof of college enrollment.  A valid college ID is perfect.
