New Policies - Effective February 1, 2015

The Park District will be enforcing two new policies starting February 1, 2015. 

Policy #1 – 17 years and Younger Waiver Policy:
Any person, 17 years old and under that is not a member, must have a parent signed waiver on file with the Park District prior to utilizing non-scheduled open gym or the fitness centers. This is a requirement from our Risk Management agency, PDRMA. The parent-signed waiver will be good for 1 year. 
Example:  A high school student fitness member (without a parent) wants to bring a friend that is 17 years old to exercise with him/her; the friend can only exercise with member if we have a parent-signed waiver on file. 
Example:  A 13 year old member wants to bring his/her 13 year old friend. The friend has to have a parent-signed waiver on file.  The member’s parent can’t sign the waiver for the child’s friend.  

Policy #2 – Unattended Children in Rakow Center or Randall Oaks Recreation Center:
Any child under 12 years old cannot be unattended in our facilities. The 12-13 year old fitness members require a parent or someone over 18 years old to be with them while exercising. An adult member can NOT pay for their children to be in the gym while they exercise in the fitness centers.
