Beginning June 1st, we will be re-opening the Young Center with limited operations. This includes the fitness center areas only for member, staff, and community use. With the hard work of our university and facility services staff, we will be providing all appropriate supplies and procedures to ensure safety for all. The following information provides Young Center hours of operation, along with further details for what to expect.
• Young Center Hours of Operation
o Weekdays – 6am-6pm
o Weekends 8m-12pm

o Main entrance access only (by Lyle Hare Stadium)
o Hand sanitizer at front desk and fitness center entrances
o Restrooms open only – Locker rooms will remain closed
o All surrounding venues will remain closed

• Fitness Center Capacity

o Please, feel free to call ahead to check on capacity – 605-642-6096
o These numbers will be possibly be adjusted per recommendations through June
o If you do not wish to restart your membership, please let me know ASAP so I can ensure your membership dues/dates are not restarted
o All memberships will be prorated based on your previous expiration date and the Young Center closure duration. We will honor all punch passes, week passes, and certificates. Please, ensure you have your parking passes visible inside your vehicles.
o Prorate example #1: If member had an annual membership
Add 77 days to their membership end date (March 15 – June 1)
o Prorate example #2: If member had a random end-date
Add prorated amount of days to their membership end date
For example: If end-date was April 10th, take 16 days from March and 10 days from April for a total of 26 days, and add it to June, so the new end-date would be June 26th.
Thank you again for your patience during this time; we appreciate your attention to these details and are excited to see all of you again. And as always, please practice safe social-distancing to ensure safety for all.
