Member & Guest Policies Membership Cards When you come to The J, please bring your membership card with you every time. It’s your passkey into the building, and your ticket past the reception desk. Membership cards are nontransferable. If yours is lost or stolen, please call us at 330-8677850 right away. We can provide replacement cards for $15/adult card and $5/child card (ages 5-12). Members may be charged for a replacement card if unable to present their card after three visits in a row. Thank you for helping us keep The J safe and secure for all of our members!

Be Our Guest! To ensure that our members have the best possible experience at The J, our Board of Directors has approved these guest policies: •

Guest pass fees are $10 for adults 18 and over; $7 for teens ages 13-17; $5 for children ages 5-12; and free for children ages 4 and under.

We welcome any local guest at The J three times each calendar year. A member must always accompany guests.

It’s good when family and friends come to visit! We don’t have any restrictions for out-of-town guests; our fees are $25 per week per individual or $35 per week for a family, or the daily guest pass rate.

Guest passes are available on Saturday and can be purchased by completing a credit card transaction sheet. We can process your guest pass transaction by completing a credit card slip.

Lockers & Towel Service

We’re pleased to offer full and half lockers for daily use at Member Guest Policies no charge. If& you’d like to borrow a lock for day use, please

show your card at the Fitness Desk. You can rent a locker for the year for $75 for a half locker and $150 for a full locker; the senior adult rate is $50.04 for a half locker and $100.08 for a full locker. However, if locks are left on overnight, we must remove the locks and empty the locker. We cannot be responsible for valuables removed from lockers. Towels are available at the Fitness Desk for $3.75 monthly per person (up to $15 monthly for a family of four or more). This service fee may be added to your monthly draft.

Family & Accessible Changing Rooms You’ll find family changing rooms available to those who cannot use the stairs from the lower level locker rooms to the indoor pool and to families who would like a private place to change together before and after swimming. Please ask our member service staff for more information and directions to the family changing rooms.be responsible for valuables removed from lockers.

Supervision Policy & Age Restrictions The J is the family place for people of all ages. Therefore, we require that an adult accompany a child under the age of 13 at all times. We ask parents of children ages 13-18 to use good discretion to determine the level of adult supervision required by their child. For the safety of our members, the whirlpool, steam room and sauna, are for the use of members ages 16 and over. To safeguard our members’ privacy, we ask that children six years of age and older use the appropriate locker room for their gender. If your child of the opposite gender needs some help from you in the locker room, we invite you to use the family locker rooms located off the main lobby.

Attire For our members to feel comfortable at The J, please wear appropriate attire in our facility. Shirts and shoes are required in all areas except the locker room and the pools, and, for safety reasons, proper footwear must be worn in physical activity spaces. We cannot allow outdoor shoes in the gymnasium. The J reserves the right to determine what is appropriate clothing.

Keeping it Kosher! All food served by the Shaw JCC must be kosher, and we ask that all food brought in to the building and outdoor pool be respectful of the laws of kashrut and those who keep kosher. What does that mean? Jewish tradition dictates that meat and milk be kept separate from one another in the kitchen, on the table, and in our stomachs. Because Jewish law also dictates certain rules about meat types and preparation, we ask that you leave meat at home and, when you’re bringing food to The J, pack cheese sandwiches, tuna fish, peanut butter and jelly, and all of the other wonderful treats you can imagine that don’t include meat!

Shabbat (Saturday) Policy Jewish law and tradition embrace the Sabbath—Saturday, a day of rest, when no work is done and no money changes hands. To respect that tradition, we do not sell goods or services at The J on Saturdays. Please remember to buy guest passes ahead of time. We cannot charge member accounts for guest passes or Shabbat cards.

Loss of Privileges The use of physical force against another person or with the intent of damaging Shaw JCC property may result in suspension or loss of privileges. Verbal abuse will be handled in the same way as physical force and may also result in suspension or loss of membership privileges.

For any questions regarding Member & Guest policies, please call 330-867-7850.
