SARC adds supervised weight room time for teens

Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center, 610 N. Fifth Ave., is now offering teen weight room hours from 1-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, for teens 13-15 who have completed a free weight room orientation, and others 16 and older.

Normally SARC only offers weight room usage for ages 13-15 who have completed an orientation, but now offer these times for working parents where the room will be monitored by a weight room staff member.

SARC’s goal with this program is to give youth, students and families safe and healthy activities this summer, said director Scott Deschenes. Besides the weight room, youth have access to the pool, gymnasium and racquetball courts.

Upcoming orientations are at 11 a.m. June 19, 4 p.m. June 25 and 9 a.m. July 3. Each orientation is between 90 minutes to two hours. Youths not available for orientations may hire SARC-approved personal trainers to complete the orientations.
