The center features a Teen Room, Gymnasium, seven classrooms, computer lab, music room, art room, multi-purpose room and a snack bar.

Daily, weekly and monthly prices vary depending on membership length and daily activities.

Provided as part of the membership is access to the educational Youth Sports Programs offered by Sports Plus, which include basketball, cheerleading, soccer and fall/spring baseball.

With this equipment comes responsibility: all members must demonstrate good sportsmanship and practice safety.
