Q: What is The Bridge? A: The Bridge is recreation center for 7th-12th grade students. It provides you with a fun, safe place to hang out. The opportunities are endless—we offer a wide range of activities and programs. You have access to our skatepark, gymnasium, rock climbing wall, game room, and a café. We also offer organized sports, tutoring, and often host special events and concerts.
Q: Does it cost anything to join The Bridge? A: NOPE! It doesn’t cost you a thing! The only extra charges that will incur will be sports leagues and clinics, some events and concerts, taekwondo, and the food and drinks in the café (offered at a minimal price).
Q: Do I need to fill out a Release Form? A: Yes! If you are under the age of 18 your parent or legal guardian must fill the form out for you but does not have to be present when you visit the facility. If you are over 18, you may fill out and sign the form yourself. The form may be printed, filled out, and returned to the check-in area or you may complete the form online. Release Form
Q. How does the Release Form work if I bring a friend? A. Release Forms MUST be signed by your friend’s legal parent or guardian. Parents can download the form online, print it, and sign it. Your friend can bring it with him/her when you visit The Bridge. Parents can also submit the form online. Release Form
Q: Why do I need a photo ID to check in? A: It helps us know who is on campus and provides information in the case of an accident or emergency. After you’ve submitted the Release Form, you will be given a photo ID. Each time you visit The Bridge, we will scan it to check in and when you leave, you scan it to check out.
Q: How will you know if I have checked in or not? A: We will give you a colored wrist band after you check in at the front desk. We have monitors at each activity location who will look for that band. If you do not have one on, you will be asked to go check in.
Q: Do my parents or guardian have to stay while I’m at The Bridge? A: No…if you are in 7th grade or higher and have submitted your signed Release Form. During Saturday’s family time (9:00 AM – 2:00 PM) and for special events, anyone 6th grade or younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Q: Can I use the whole facility (i.e., gym, rock wall, skate park)? A: Only if you have a signed Release Form and photo ID on file. If your parents do not give you permission to use the skatepark or the rock wall, you can use the gym and game room – but you still need a photo ID at check-in.
