Closure Policy:

In general we will cancel all non-athletic programs and activities when the local public schools close for emergency and weather conditions.

Please check our website for the most up-to-date hours, programs, and services.The decision to cancel an athletic event will be made by 3 pm the afternoon of the event. Check with the team coach or our website for updated athletic program information.

 Membership Cards:

We encourage members to bring their membership card everyday they attend. This is our way to identify youth and it aids in equipment check-out and use.

Reaching Your Child:

We encourage parents to provide updated emergency contact numbers in case we need to reach them while their child is attending Clubhouse programs. We have improved our paging system, and will attempt to page your child in an emergency situation. We have between 300 and 350 youth participating each day. We encourage you and your child to setup a check-in system. There is a phone available for members to make local phone calls to reach you.

If a member appears to have symptoms of having head lice, a private screening may be performed by a trained staff member. If live head lice or nits are found, the member will be moved away from others to avoid direct head-to-head contact and the parent/guardian will be called to pick them up.

  • The member’s parent or guardian will be notified that prompt, effective treatment is necessary.  See attachment from CSD.
  • The member will be allowed to return to the Club 24 hours after being treated and there is no live lice found on inspection.
