How to Create a 7th Grade Initiative Membership:
Step One: Fill in Form
1. Fill in and submit the 7th Grade Initiative application form
Step Two: Parents/Guardians and 7th grader attend Zoom orientation
Before completing your 7th Grade Initiative registration process, all parents/guardians and their 7th grader are REQUIRED to attend a Zoom orientation (dates listed within the form). Both parents/guardians must have their camera on and be ready to participate in the Zoom orientation.
The orientation will cover all of the information about the program including code of conduct, 7th grader expectations, available amenities, and disciplinary actions/consequences. The Zoom orientation will provide the opportunity to meet and speak with the 7th Grade Leader at your respective branch.
Step Three: Students Read, Sign Member Code of Conduct

Students must read the Teen Strength and Fitness Orientation Guide, watch the Fitness Equipment Orientation Video and take the Teen Orientation Quiz.
