Track & Fitness Center

Please visit the Elementary office to apply for track and fitness membership. The office is open weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. 

All members (18+) must pay a $10 application fee (per person), which is non-refundable, and a $10 refundable deposit for an access key card, which is needed to enter the fitness area and/or track. This $10 key deposit will be refunded when the key card is returned in good condition to the district. If a member loses their key card, it will cost $50 to replace it. Access card must be returned with 10 days of termination of membership. If access card is not returned a $50 fee will be assessed.

Potential members will need to bring driver's license and proof of residency. Applications will only be processed when accompanied by application fee.

Because the fitness center is located within a school, all members are required to undergo a background check. All members will be screened using iCHAT, Michigan's criminal history background check system. All information will be kept confidential.

Memberships take 24 – 48 hours to activate. You will be notified via e-mail when your application is complete and your access card is available for pick-up.

Effective October 2020, and until notice is provided in writing of revocation, the following COVID-19 Safety Protocols are also in place for all track and fitness center members:


  • Participation Limitations: Participants are limited to 10 at one time in the Fitness Center and 10 for track use. If you plan to use both areas during your allotted work out time, please reserve both spaces. You must leave promptly at the end of your one-hour timeframe to allow Dansville Schools to adhere to these limits and ensure the safe use of these areas by all.


  • Safety Measures: All participants will need to complete a screening, including taking and recording your temperature, upon entrance to the Track and Fitness Center. All members must also wear a mask at all times while using either area. Participants must sanitize equipment following every use, as has been the expectation previously. Hand sanitizer has been provided in both areas for use. Participants are also required to physically distance while exercising. Dansville Schools’ custodial service, CleanTeamUSA, will help ensure both areas are cleaned regularly.


  • Closure Periods/Access Limits: Please also watch for notifications via your email for dates and times when the facility will be closed for scheduled school events. We will not be able to keep the fitness center open when are events are happening in the gym, as we need to calculate capacity numbers based solely upon participants in those scheduled events. Members are not allowed to be on the gym floor or in the gym locker rooms at any time, for any reason. 

Members understand that use of the fitness center or track is at their own risk and assume full responsibility for any injuries in any way related to the member’s use of the fitness center or track. Members agree to release the District, its Board members, agents, and employees from any and all claims that they may have for any injuries in any way related to the member’s use of the fitness center or track. Members acknowledge these statements about assumption of risk were read and understood and agree to the terms and conditions listed.


The District is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. Each member is solely responsible for determining whether the member is physically fit and/or adequately skilled for using the fitness center or track. Before beginning an exercise program, it is recommended that each member visit his/her medical provider to develop a plan that best fits each member. It is always advisable, especially if the member is pregnant, suffers from an underlining medical condition, takes medication, uses tobacco products, has a family history of coronary disease, or has recently suffered an illness, injury or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any activity at the fitness center or track. Aerobic and other fitness activities such as passive/resistive weight training, use of stair machines, jogging, free weights and other training devices are intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental and emotional resources of the member. Despite careful and proper preparation, instructions, medical advice, conditioning, and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury. All hazards and dangers cannot be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, certain risks, dangers and injuries due to overexertion, improper technique, ignoring safety precautions, failing to follow instructions, slips and falls, unfamiliarity with the equipment and/or exercise, equipment failure, failure in supervision/instruction, premises defects and other risks inherent to the particular activity exist. The District does not guarantee safety. Dependent upon the member’s physical condition, age and/or skill level, fitness activities can involve a risk of injury.
