Junior membership review
Since the introduction of the bookable junior supervised sessions and following feedback received from parents we have reviewed our junior membership entitlements to enhance the provisions for our junior members.
We are committed to providing a safe and effective exercise space for juniors in our facility. As an organisation and a member of UKActive, we follow their guidance on Young People in Leisure Facilities and have adjusted our membership entitlements to align to their new guidance.
We are confident that the improvements made enhances the member offering and provides additional opportunities to support young people to exercise safely and effectively at Guildford Spectrum.
Detailed information regarding further changes to junior fitness entitlements and improvements to our offering at Guildford Spectrum are provided below.
Changes are effective from Friday 10th November 2023.
In addition to the improved entitlements to our existing junior memberships for 12-15yr olds, we have introduced a new membership for juniors aged 10-11 years old.
ALL new junior members 10-15 years must complete an induction and complete a junior PAR-Q under the supervision of their parent or legal guardian prior to using the fitness facilities.
The induction and exercise prescription will follow UKActive guidance on exercise prescription for children and young people.
Under 16s are not permitted to use free weights greater than 10kg as per this guidance and are not permitted to use the saunas or spa facilities under CIMSPA guidelines.
