In accordance with the updated State of NJ mask and social distance policies, members, employees and guests should observe the following protocols while in the facility.

As you know, Schafer Sports Center is a multi-purpose facility with an emphasis on activities for children and individuals with Special Needs. With vaccinations, currently not available for children; all children must continue to wear a mask while in the facility. Likewise, adults in all the areas of building where children are present must also wear a mask regardless of their personal vaccination status. This includes, the main entrance/exit of the building, lobby, hallways and restrooms. Fully vaccinated individuals are permitted to remove mask once in your workout area. Unvaccinated individuals are required to continue to follow the CDC guidelines, to wear a mask and maintain 6 feet distancing. With these new guidelines, we are now allowing up to 2 spectators per family to observe classes.

We truly appreciate your support and adherence to the safety protocols for the benefit of all. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. A list of guidelines is below.

Thank you, Schafer Management
