Activ8 is our brand new membership for young people aged 8-17, which we’ll be launching in the next couple of months. This will replace the current Futures scheme and other junior options currently available across Lifestyles.
Our aim is to encourage youngsters to come along and enjoy a workout after school or at the weekend and we’ll soon be launching the Activ8 website so you can check times of swims, classes, activities and gym sessions.
If you currently pay for a junior Total, Plus, Class or Aqua Plus membership you’ll automatically transfer to Activ8 and your Direct Debit will be reduced to £10 per month. If you are a junior Aqua member, you’ll still pay £10 per month, but you’ll get a whole lot more for your money. Once launched, you’ll just need to collect your digital wristband, which will be your new memberhip ID.
If you currently have a Futures membership, you won’t automatically transfer to Activ8, but you can sign up at any Lifestyles centre and choose to pay by Direct Debit or pay as you go.
Please note that swimming will continue to be free for children under 8.
