SAFE PASSAGE POLICY & AUTHORIZATION

For members under the age of 12, a parent, guardian or other pre-authorized adult must retrieve the member from the Club. 

Members age 12 and older may leave the Club unescorted with written permission from a parent or guardian. Members 12 and older may also escort other members of their household from the Club.

No member, regardless of age, will be allowed to return to the Club once they leave the premises for the day. The primary reason is to encourage members to stay at the Club for as long as possible, rather than leave the premises unsupervised where they may be exposed to dangers that are beyond the control of our staff. 

The Club will not physically restrain a member that insists on leaving the Club, nor block the facility’s exits. 

  • Only pre-authorized adults will be allowed to pick up children from the Club.  All authorized adults will be listed on the membership application.

  • Parents/guardians/authorized adults are asked to enter and exit through the main door to drop off or pick up children. Staff will not respond to phone calls requesting a member to be dismissed unescorted.

  • Parents/guardians/authorized adults should be prepared to show ID at all times.

  • The Club will not physically restrain a member that insists on leaving the Club, nor block the facility’s exits. Therefore it is each parent’s responsibility to discuss the Club’s Safe Passage Policy with his or her child and ensure that he or she complies. The Club will not accept responsibility for members that leave the Club unsupervised and in breach of this policy.

  • The Club reserves the right to suspend or discontinue services for violation of the above procedures by an adult or child.

Therefore, it is each parent’s responsibility to discuss the Club’s Safe Passage Policy with his or her child and ensure that he or she complies. The Club will not accept responsibility for members that leave the Club unsupervised and in breach of this policy. The Club does, however, reserve the right to discipline members that leave unescorted without written permission, up to and including suspension and termination of membership.
