Just like you, your child needs some form of exercise to keep them healthy and in shape physically, mentally, and emotionally. To help your child embrace an active lifestyle, it’s a good idea to get a family membership to Midlothian Athletic Club. We don’t just offer individual memberships, but memberships that everyone in your family may enjoy. With the increasing child obesity epidemic in the United States, encouraging your child to be active will not only help them be healthy during this segment of their life, but throughout the years as they age. With so many kids sitting at desks in school all day, surrounded by homework at night, and tempted by video games, it’s important that your child gets a healthy dose of physical activity every day. Recess and gym at school aren’t enough, which is why a gym membership to a versatile athletic club like MAC will be just the trick for everyone in the family to be healthy. Read below to learn about all the active opportunities for MAC kids.
YouthKids of all ages love the MAC, particularlyour Kids' Club and youth activities.
About our Youth Programs
MAC supports and encourages an active lifestyle for the children of our members. We offer a variety of programs and events designed especially for our younger members.

For Parents’ Morning Out and Parents’ Night Out, parents may check their children into Kids’ Club and leave the gym! This service is perfect for date night, grocery shopping or holiday preparation!
Use of Kids’ Club is complimentary with family membership. Otherwise, nominal fees apply.
All Kids’ Club staff members hold current CPR/AED/First Aid certification.
Also, we have a page detailing what you need to know before you go.

Group And Private Swim Lessons and Swimming Clinics
Youth swimming lessons are important because they can set the foundation for proper swim technique and safety. Our lessons are designed for swimmers of all ages and experience. MAC offers group and private lessons for youth and group swim clinics for youth. MAC also hosts Poseidon Swimming, a year round youth competitive swim team. Please visit the aquatics section of our website to learn all about our many swimming programs.
Whether you are celebrating a 3rd or 13th birthday, a party at the MAC is fun for any age. We handle the set up, clean up and all the fun in between. All parties are two hours and include a personal party coordinator, paper products, ice cream cups, lemonade and balloons. We can customize your party to meet your individual needs.
MAC Summer Camp 2019
MAC Summer Camp keeps children ages 5-13 active and engaged through various team sports and team building activities. Each day will focus on a different sport, like soccer, basketball, tennis, golf and swimming, as well as spend time with favorite playground games like Kickball and Capture the Flag. Campers will receive tennis instruction from a MAC Tennis Pro as well as a yoga class by one of MAC’s Group Exercise Instructors. Campers will also visit Sky Zone Trampoline Park. QUESTIONS about All Sports Camp should be directed to Jill Stansfield, email@example.com.
High Performance Tennis Camp
Each summer, MAC offers several sessions of High Performance Tennis Camp. Summer 2019 dates and information coming soon!
Youth members aged 9-12 are welcome to participate in our group exercise classes along with a parent. Children ages 13-15 may take classes independently with a parent also on the premises. Children ages 16 and up are invited to all classes without restriction.
For indoor cycling classes in our Spinning® studio, participants need to be at least five feet tall in order to use the Spinner® bikes safely.
Fun and Developmental
Our MAC youth programs focus on two main themes. The first priority is for fitness and physical activity to be fun. The more a child enjoys fitness, the more likely the child will continue to participate. The second priority is skill development. Not only do our programs advance a child’s skill set within a sport, they also improve coordination and gross motor skills.
Our Kids’ Club hosts social and child-minding events throughout the year. These events include holiday parties and movie nights. For Parents’ Morning Out and Parents’ Night Out, parents may check their children into Kids’ Club and leave the gym!
