CSBCC Updated COVID-19 Policies

In preparation for the Fall and kids starting their new school year off with the hybrid  model of learning, the Parks and Recreation Department reviewed and updated a few of the polices regarding COVID-19 at the Claremont Savings Bank Community Center (CSBCC) . 

Age Requirements for Entering CSBCC 
 
Patrons under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult unless you are in Middle School/High School and registered for a specific time slot for the gymnasium, pool or fitness room.  Students registered for these programs must meet age requirements for use of the pool and fitness center.  To help maintain social distancing and maximum capacity requirements, participants must stay in the area they registered for and not move from one program area to another. When their assigned time slot comes to an end, students will need to exit the CSBCC as tables, common areas and the exterior of the building are not available for gatherings.
 
Patrons Under the Age of 15 and above Age 10  
 
To help accommodate our younger members and to still adhere to COVID-19 policies and procedures, we have added time slots for this age group to utilize.  There is a limited number of time slots available for the gym, pool and fitness room.  Participants must sign up each week.  You can sign up for the Monday/Thursday Option (A) or the Tuesday/Friday Option (B).  Time slots are available from either 2:30-3:30 PM (1) or 3:45-4:45 PM (2).  There is no cost for members to sign up and the cost for non-members is $6 per week.  Participants will only be allowed to participate in the area they are registered for and must report to that area once they check into the Community Center.  You can register for these activities by visiting our website at Claremontparks.com or by calling (603) 542-7019. Keep an eye out for more activities to be added; kids will be able to register for them as they become available.  
*Participants must be 12 years or older to use the fitness room and must have completed the fitness orientation. 
** Programs begin September  10th  
 
Pool Parties and Room Rentals
 
Starting on October 3rd, pool parties will be allowed for no more than 10 children in the party.  Space is limited to only these specific time slots on Saturdays and Sundays from 3PM to 5 PM and will include one hour of pool time followed by one hour of time in the birthday room.  The pool will be closed to all others at this time. 
 
Room Rentals
 
Room rentals at the CSBCC are currently available during limited time slots on Saturdays and Sundays for two hour blocks.  The time slots are from 10AM-12PM and from 2PM-4PM. 
 
For more information on Pool Parties and Room Rentals, please call the CSBCC at (603) 542-7019.
