Kroc Center Senior SPORTS
Member: FREE, Non-Member: $7
Are you a Baby Boomer or beyond? If so, join us each weekday morning for active FUN! Participate in many of the activities played at The State and National Senior Games or just enjoy a game of cards with your friends. We walk, swim, play, visit and just plain laugh a lot. The FUN is geared for those 50 years of age and older; however, anyone can join in the FUN and give it a try.

Fit 'n 50 Clubs
Free for ages 50+!
Clubs are meant for older adults, 50 years and up, and are offered at the Kroc Center as outreach programs to the community. Older adults that are non-members are allowed to attend a “club” for free but must sign the roster at the Club Check-in table prior to participation. Attendance is based on a first come, first served basis with limited space so please plan accordingly. For more information, contact 905-3573.
Functional Fitness Club
FREE Fridays Club
Participate each week and receive free bread!
Mondays & Fridays - 8:15am
A class intended to improve everyday function and range of motion in older adults (carrying groceries, gardening, lifting boxes, cleaning house, etc.) These instructor lead classes will be for older adults looking to stay mobile and keep their independence. Strengthen your muscles to help improve your balance and prevent falls.
Walking is a healthy, fun way to exercise and socialize at the same time. Join us Monday - Friday to get in shape at the Kroc Center! All are welcome to walk together in small groups or on your own using one of four designated paths within and around the Center. Stop by the Fitness Desk today to get more details and receive your free program and tracking record.
Wednesdays - 8:15am
A gentler form of Yoga targeting older adults and those that can comfortably get up and down off the floor.
As part of the Kroc Center’s community outreach program anyone 50 and older can sign up for a Free Fridays Card!
Stop by the Club Check-in table located at the entrance of the building, Monday through Friday, 7:30am-12pm, to get a tracking card. Take the card to any qualifying activity indicated on the current fitness schedule (available at the Check-in table) and have your instructor initial it - please note that fees apply to non-members for most activities.
Participants must attend 3 of the approved activities each week to be eligible to take home free bread, which will be available that same Friday from 9-11am. Bread will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Sample activities may include:
