NOTICE MARCH 31, 2023 - The sauna is currently closed for repairs. Staff has identified that there are underground wires that need to be replaced. At this time, we are still determining the repairs needed, and are unable to estimate a timeframe for completion. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience! 

EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 28, 2022 - Due to the dramatic increase of youth disrespecting staff and patrons over the past several months, and large groups of them refusing to adhere to the rules of the Centennial Fitness Center, the following changes will be implemented beginning on February 28. After 6:30pm, Monday through Friday, Open Gym will be limited to patrons 16 years or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Currently, this only applies to open gym. Open Swim and use of the 2nd floor fitness area are not impacted.

Add-on: After the initial individual membership of a household, the rest of the household is eligible for add-on memberships. Add-on memberships vary in price based on age. Anyone 12 and under gets a reduced rate compared to 13 and over due to the fact that 12 and under can use the pool and gymnasium only. Please note that once a dependent turns 26 years old, they must have their own household and are not eligible for an add-on membership. 

Youth Individual: Children ages 12 and under with access to the indoor pool and gymnasium only. This is only available to households where no one over the age of 12 is an annual member.

Daylight Savings: Provides member with access Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 3:00pm. Daylight Savings members can upgrade to an individual membership at any time. Daylight Savings members must pay the daily visit rate if they wish to use the facility outside of the designated time.
