Southwest Michigan's only tennis, fitness and swimming club.

Child Care/Youth Programs

Your children will have fun so you can, too.

It’s tough to make fitness a priority when you have children to care for, so bring them with you to South Shore. We offer one of the safest, most fun-filled childcare facilities in Southwest Michigan. Our staff will gain you and your child’s confidence almost instantly. And remember, our youth program doesn’t stop with childcare. We also offer some of the most popular summer sports camps for boys and girls ages 5 to 12 years old. And when it comes to parties (for any occasion or age), you’ll create wonderful memories when you let us help you plan and host your next celebration.  

Nursery Services 

Our staff cares for children 6 weeks to 6 years old, Monday through Saturday, in a fun-filled, secure room. There’s no charge for Full Family Members and others will pay a nominal fee. Please check the nursery door for this week’s schedule. Pre-registration is required each day. You may register up to a week in advance at South Shore or by calling 429-2101

A word of caution to parents and grandparents. Most children have such a good time while they are here that they do NOT want to leave when you’re ready to take them home.
