- Try to stay at least six feet apart from other players. Do not make physical contact with them (such as shaking hands or a high five).

USE FOUR BALLS OR SIX BALLS
- Although unlikely, it’s possible that a tennis ball can transmit the COVID-19 virus, as virtually any hard surface can transmit the disease. So here is an extra precaution you can take to keep safe when playing tennis:
- Open two cans of tennis balls that do not share the same number on the ball.
- Take one set of numbered balls, and have your playing partner take a set of balls from the other can.
- Proceed with play, making sure to pick up your set of numbered balls only. Should a ball with the other number wind up on your side of the court, do not touch the ball with your hands. Use your racquet head or feet to advance the ball to the other side of the court.

Can I suspend my monthly dues? Members can freeze their membership for a minimum of one month at a time, for any number of consecutive months, for $15/month.

If such notice is received at least three (3) business days prior to the end of the month, the membership will be terminated as of the last day of that month. If such notice is not received at least three (3) business days prior to the end of the month, the membership will be terminated as of the end of the following month. Memberships that are terminated will be required to pay an enrollment fee upon rejoining the club.

If a member fails to abide by the Club’s policies and rules, or conduct themselves in a manner that the Club, in its sole discretion, determines is inappropriate, Club Fit may immediately terminate membership without refund for the full month in which the membership is terminated as well as any additional charges incurred through the membership termination date.
How am I informed of membership rate changes? Membership dues are subject to change with 60 days written notice. Other charges and fees are subject to change without prior notification. Membership dues are not dependent on the availability of all Club Fit facilities at all times or on frequency of use. Club Fit, in its sole discretion, may from time to time, (i) need to do equipment or maintenance repairs and that certain equipment or facilities may not be available at all times; and (ii) have shortened hours or reduced facilities because of occurrences including but not limited to holidays, staff development days, fundraising events, parties, and the like.

Water Safety Rules
All children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult (at least 18 years of age) in the Aquatics Center. The adult must be in the pool with the child, and within an arm’s reach, unless the child has passed the Program Pool Swim Test. Children under the age of 10 who have passed the swim test still must have an adult supervising from the pool deck.
Children that are 11 years old who have not passed the Program Pool Swim Test must have an adult with them in the Aquatics Center. Children that are 11 years old and have passed the Program Pool Swim Test do not require an adult on the pool deck, however they must have an adult supervisor in the building.
Children ages 12+ have regular member access to the Aquatics Center Program Pool. If they cannot demonstrate an ability to swim safely, they will be asked to wear appropriate safety vests. Children still must have an adult supervising from the pool deck.
Program Pool Swim Test
Program Pool Swim Test will be administered by a lifeguard of Water Safety Instructor (WSI). The names of those who have passed the Program Pool swim test are written down and kept on record on the pool deck. The Program Pool Swim Test consists of:
- Swim two freestyle lengths of the Program Pool, demonstrating the child’s ability to put their face in and out of the water while swimming.
- Tread water for 30 seconds.
- Retrieve a dive ring from 4 1/2 feet of water.
Lap Pool Swim Test
Children under the age of 14 years old may swim in the Lap Pool if they have passed the Lap Pool Swim Test. The names of those who have passed the Lap Pool swim test are written down and kept on record on the pool deck. The Lap Pool Swim Test consists of:
- Swim 50 yards freestyle or breaststroke, demonstrating rhythmic breathing.
- Tread water for 1 minute.
- Retrieve a dive ring from 7 feet of water (at 7 ft marker of the lap pool).
Aquatics Exercise Classes
While Aquatic Exercise classes are in session, we ask that you please walk around the class, and not behind the instructor teaching the class, as it distracts participants in the class. For this reason, you will notice signs on the pool deck during class.
Approved Aquatic Equipment Only
Club Fit provides equipment for member use, and we encourage you to utilize it, as we only permit the use of US Coast Guard approved equipment. Fins are only permitted for use in our lap pool, or in the lap swimming section of our program pool. We do not permit the use of mermaid fins, and inflatables are not allowed, as they pose a risk of popping.
Please rinse off before entering either of the pools or whirlpool. This helps maintain ideal chemical balance in our pools. When perfumes, soaps, residues and dyes from clothes and skin react with the pool water, chemical reactions occur that can cause imbalance.
The Aquatics Center closes for 30 minutes from the last sound of thunder or sighting of lightning, which on some days may be reoccurring. To inquire if the pool is open or if your class has been cancelled due to thunder or poor road conditions, please contact the Service Desk at (914) 762-3444 for the most up-to-date information.
Session registration opens approximately four (4) weeks prior to the session start date. All classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis. All session payments must be completed no less than 24 hours prior to the first class day in enrolled session. Payment guarantees a spot within the class. Held spots that have not been paid 24 hours prior to the class will be considered open spots and sold out on a first come, first serve basis.
All participants are required to check in at the reception desk before each class.
Instructors Are Not Guaranteed
If you are signing up with a particular instructor for a session of group lessons, and that instructor has requested absence for the day or has become ill, you will be given a substitute instructor. Make-up lessons will not be offered for alternate instructors placed in group classes.
Students are not automatically progressed to the next level. In order for a participant to be graduated to the next skill level, students will have to meet the exit skill criteria for the previous level.
