**GreatKids at GreatLIFE

GreatLIFE’s mission is “To Enrich the lives of families and individuals through golf, fitness, and healthy lifestyles.” Our goal is to enrich the lives of children. We encourage families to use our facilities and spend time together. If you are looking at going to the bowling alley, going golfing, or using the fitness centers, here are a few tips before you find your activity!


Welcome to the beginning of your GreatLIFE! Please refrain from bringing little ones into a GreatLIFE facility until 2 months of age for safety purposes.


At this age, kids are able to use GreatKids childcare! It is included in our family memberships! Childcare staff* are able to feed bottles and play with your child as you remain in the building, but we will notify you if your child needs their diaper changed. Children are allowed in childcare for up to 2 intermittent hours per day in any GreatLIFE facility. Children this age are also welcome to use the pool during family swim hours and basketball courts during open gym with direct supervision. Please refrain from using equipment or being near free weights at ages 2 months – 9 years with or without a parent due to safety concerns. *Background checked


Our PLAY Everything Program offers sports-related camps and clinics for kids ages 8-13. Please ask a Team Member for the next upcoming event.


10,11,12,&13 year olds are welcome to workout at our fitness locations under DIRECT supervision of their parents or guardian (except the Yankton location on Capital). They may also attend group fitness classes** with their parent or guardian. 

10,11,12,&13 year olds are also welcome to take our Youth Certification* class to be able to use the cardio equipment, weight machines, and attend group fitness classes** on their own at either Woodlake, Harrisburg, 41st & Sertoma, or the Performance Center. Parents or guardians must be on-site while their children are exercising until age 13. If you are looking for a more structured fitness option for your children, please consider Personal Training as they would then be able to utilize all the fitness equipment and be able to use our turf areas. *Additional Cost 

**Must be 14 for Hot Studio Classes and 16 for BodyPump

AGES 14 and UP

Children are now welcome to use all fitness equipment! Group Fitness classes are offered to youth of this age. Our satellite locations may be used at 14 for their convenience. They will be able to receive an access card at this time. 14-year olds are also now welcome to use our hot tub and may swim during designated adult swim times. They may also now enter the strength room and use all the cardio equipment and book a tennis court. Children who are 13, can use the fitness equipment only at Woodlake, Harrisburg, 41st and Sertoma and the Performance Center while they are staffed by GreatLIFE Team Members. No child under the age of 10 can enter our other 24/7 satellite locations with or without a parent due to safety concerns. Children 10-13 must be under direct supervision by a parent
