Membership Policy

MEMBERSHIP POLICY & PROCEDURE

YIM South Shore reserves the right to cancel a class and to make schedule changes and fee changes when necessary. Classes may be canceled or combined due to low enrollment.

No refunds will be issued after classes start. Credits will be issued for youth sports and fitness classes after classes start only when accompanied by a doctor’s note dated within the current session. YIM South Shore reserves the right to cancel programs, credits or refunds will be issued accordingly. If credit is requested prior to the start of a class, full credit will be given toward a later program. Credits may be used toward other programs, membership or merchandise. Credits are valid for one year from date of issue. Please allow 3 weeks for credits or refunds to be processed.

Non-Sufficient Fund Fee (NSF)

Returned membership drafts (Bank, Credit, or Debit) will incur a $10 service charge.

Membership cards are not transferable. If a card is lost, a $5.00 fee will be charged to replace it. Membership cards MUST be scanned upon entering the facility.

Facility members may freeze their membership one time during the calendar year. Requests to freeze or cancel membership must be made either in writing, or by filling out a Freeze/Cancellation Form at the Front Desk.

Youth age 7 and under:
Must be directly supervised by a parent/guardian whenever they are at YIM South Shore Center

Youth ages 8-11:
May be unaccompanied by parent/guardian in specifically designated areas of the facility that are monitored by YIM staff. However, the parent/guardian must be physically present somewhere in the facility.

Youth 12-14:
Years old may use the facility on their own except for the Fitness room.

Youth 15+:
May use the fitness center, equipment, and group exercise classes.
Drop-in childcare program is available for children ages 6 weeks to 11 years, while their parents utilize the facility. Please understand children are served on a first-come, first-served basis. For safety purposes, we are limited to the number of children that can be served at one time.

While YIM will make every attempt to open or remain open in inclement weather, it reserves the right to delay opening, close early, or remain closed if the weather is serious enough to put our staff and members at risk. Further, if a paid program is canceled because of a closure, the class will typically be offered at a make-up day and time. If circumstances prohibit a make-up class from being held, YIM may prorate a program registrant’s class rate to reflect the actual classes offered for that session, if requested.

Due to the advances in cell phone and video/picture technology and for the privacy of our members and guests: Cell phones may not be used in locker rooms, bathrooms, or childcare rooms. Use of cameras and other video/picture capturing devices is also restricted. Posting of images taken at YIM is prohibited without permission of the Executive Director.

If you must utilize a cell phone, please be courteous and keep your phone on “vibrate” or a very quiet ring tone, and keep your conversations short and as quiet as possible. If family or friends need to contact you due to an emergency, they may call the Center’s main number and a representative will page you or make every effort to locate you immediately. If a call must be answered, please do so discreetly and move to a designated area to complete the call.

Again, in an effort to protect the privacy of our members and guests, anyone who violates this policy will be asked to move to the lobby or designated area. If a member or guest continues to violate this policy or posts images, their privileges and/or membership may be revoked.

As YIM members, it is important to remember that we share our facilities with young children, teens, and people of all backgrounds. We can make YIM a positive place for all by demonstrating YIM core values of Education, Fitness, and Friendship. Members are expected to exhibit appropriate behaviors at all times:

Respect all members, visitors, and staff.
Appropriate language should be used at all times.
Fitness equipment should be wiped down after each use.
Members should not rest on the equipment between sets and allow others to work-in while you work out.

All YIM facilities and equipment should be used for their appropriate purpose at all times.
YIM South Shore Center reserves the right to suspend or cancel a membership if a member’s behavior or language is judged to be in conflict with the welfare of other members or staff, or in conflict with Youth in Motion’s mission

YIM reserves the right to deny access or membership to any person who has been convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse, is or has been a registered sex offender, has ever been convicted of any offense relating to the use, sale, possession, or transportation of narcotics or habit forming and/or dangerous drugs, chemicals, narcotics, or intoxicating beverages. YIM also reserves the right to suspend access or membership to any person accused of the items list above pending the outcome of any charges or court proceedings.

If you must utilize a cell phone, please be courteous and keep your phone on “vibrate” or a very quiet ring tone, and keep your conversations short and as quiet as possible. If family or friends need to contact you due to an emergency, they may call the Center’s main number and a representative will page you or make every effort to locate you immediately.
