Youth Opportunities

Please see our Club Rules for Minors and how ARC’s youth can enjoy and/or utilize their membership

Club Rules for Minors 

If you have children that are coming to the club with you, please take the time to read this and be aware of our club policies regarding minors.  This is a reminder for all members about where our ARC children are permitted to be and where they are not permitted to be at certain ages.

  • Children ages 6 weeks – 13 years old
    • Are permitted in our ARC childcare facilities and around the club with a supervising adult at all times.
  • Children 13 to 15
    • If the membership type allows, children 13 to 15 and up may use the pool, tennis courts, pickleball courts, and racquetball courts unsupervised by an adult as long as they are following club rules.   This age group may also take group fitness classes that are marked as “kid-friendly” if accompanied by a parent or guardian that is 16 years old.
    • Check the Group fitness schedules to see which classes are KF “Kid Friendly”

 

  • Children 13 to 15 and up may be on the fitness floor with an adult-only after completing a certification class with an ARC trainer.
  • Children under the age of 16 may NOT be on the fitness floor without an adult at any time.  If the child is with an adult, he/she needs to be wearing an ARC lanyard showing that they completed the certification class
  • If you are interested in having your child get certified by an ARC trainer, please email Kenneth Miller at kmiller@ashevilleracquetclub.com. 
  • Children 16 years and up may use all facilities unsupervised according to their membership terms.

Important Takeaways

  • Our #1 priority is the safety of our ARC members.  Being in a “gym” can be dangerous if the child does not know how the equipment is used or which machines are safe for children.  The danger is there for the child as well as other members around the child. 
  • Children who complete the certification class will be given a lanyard to wear when they are on our fitness floors so that ARC staff knows they have completed the course and are permitted to be on the fitness floor with an adult. They need to have it on at all times when on the fitness floor.

Fitness Floor Supervisors

ARC has fitness floor supervisors who are also personal trainers on staff 40 hours per week during peak hours.  These trainers are there to welcome you to our clubs, make you feel comfortable, and answer questions you have about equipment and/or workouts.

Their schedule can be found on the group fitness schedule located on the website or at either front desk.
