USE OF THE MARJCC
The MARJCC, a membership-based organization, provides programs and services to both its membership and the community-at-large. Programs open only to MARJCC members are noted in the Program Guide and other promotional materials.
During these unprecedented times, the following MARJCC Guidelines relative to COVID-19 supersede the standard MARJCC guidelines detailed below:
- Parent Drop-off/Pick-up: Parents are asked not to remain in the building when dropping off children ages seven and older.
- Temperature checks: Members and staff are required to have temperatures taken using a noninvasive thermal scanning thermometer before entering the JCC. Per CDC guidelines, individuals with a body temperature higher than 100.4° will not be permitted to enter the facility.
- Waiver: Members and staff are required to sign a mandatory Health Declaration waiver confirming they are neither experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 nor have come in contact with someone who is experiencing symptoms.
- No Guests Permitted: Only MARJCC members are allowed on campus. No members can bring guests at this time.
- Zoom Class Policy: Please refer to your program section.
- Face masks: Members and staff are required to wear a face mask at all times.
Every member, ages 12 and older, is required to carry a MARJCC photo membership card. To facilitate entry into the building, please present your membership card, non-member card or government-issued ID to the Welcome Desk or Tennis Desk staff member. Though we make every effort to recognize our members, we ask everyone to carry his/her membership card at all times. If your membership card is lost or stolen, please notify Membership Services to prevent unauthorized use of the card. A $10 fee will be charged for the replacement Membership card. Membership cards are non-transferable, and MARJCC membership may be revoked upon violation of MARJCC policies.
Once guests are permitted to use MARJCC facilities, the Welcome Desk will collect guest access fees to the Feldenkreis-Feig-Hanono Athletic Field, Fitness Center, Scheck Family Gymnasium and Edith & Saul Schmidt Aquatic Center. When playing tennis, these fees will be collected at the Soffer Family Tennis Center.
All guests must check-in with a government-issued picture ID and pay each time they visit. All guests will sign a waiver to be kept on file. There is no maximum number of guest visits as long as the guest presents a valid ID every visit, signs the waiver, and pays the fee. Guests must abide by all MARJCC rules and policies.
- Junior Fee: $10 Age 13 and under
- Adult Fee: $20 Ages 14 – 69
- Senior Fee: $10 Age 70+
Out-of-town guests who belong to another JCC outside of Miami-Dade or Broward Counties receive complimentary guest privileges for up to two weeks per year upon presenting their valid JCC membership card to the Membership Services staff. MARJCC members are eligible to receive two complimentary guest passes per year.
As a licensed childcare facility concerned about hygiene with sensitivity for those who suffer from allergies or a fear of animals, pets are not permitted at the MARJCC, with the exception of service animals.
All members are encouraged to provide their Sun Pass number to the Membership Office to expedite entry into the MARJCC using the “member lane.” An active and current MARJCC membership is required.
The MARJCC reserves the right to tow—at the driver’s expense—any vehicle parked in an unauthorized/undesignated area. Parking privileges are extended only to MARJCC constituents attending activities at the MARJCC.
No vehicle may be left unattended and with the engine running anywhere on the MARJCC premises. The MARJCC is not responsible for any damage or theft to your vehicle. Only authorized vehicles may remain on campus overnight.

Please observe the campus speed limit of 5 mph.
To expedite the exiting of vehicles during school/camp dismissal, please follow the direction given by MARJCC personnel. Only right-hand turns allowed out of the MARJCC parking lot during carpool hours.
The safety and security of our members and guests remain our highest priorities at the MARJCC. Trunks and vehicles may be searched by staff for security purposes. MARJCC also reserves the right to search backpacks, lunch boxes, and other types of sealed or closed containers without prior notice. No weapons are permitted on campus unless authorized by the MARJCC.
A photo ID is required to enter the MARJCC—access to the MARJCC may be denied if an appropriate ID is not available. Our goal is to ensure a high level of security that prompts quick action in the event of any sign of danger. The MARJCC reserves the right to deny access to any person at any time.
The MARJCC is not liable for the theft, loss or damage to any personal belongings or property. Do not store any valuables in parked vehicles or lockers. You may bring a lock to secure your belongings in a “daily locker.” The lock must be removed by the end of each day, or MARJCC staff will remove it. Permanent lockers in the men’s and women’s locker rooms are available for an annual fee of $65, please see Membership Services for more information.
The MARJCC reserves the right to remove a participant/family member from any program or activity or general use of the facility at any time. No refunds will be given for any unused portion of the program, class, or activity.
Unsportsmanlike conduct by participants, coaches, or spectators will not be tolerated and may be cause for “ejection” from the campus, suspension from the MARJCC, or termination of membership.
Cell phones may not be used in any MARJCC bathroom or locker room facilities, or when operating a vehicle on campus—texting while driving is strictly prohibited.
SUSPENSION/REVOCATION OF MEMBERSHIP
