If a member does not have a mask but would like to use one while at our facility, the front desk staff will give them one free of charge.
2. What is the cleaning regimen at The Kroc?
The Center will be disinfected twice a day–end of the business and right before The Center opens. Additionally, sanitizing efforts will be happening throughout the day, in every department and space in The Center. Restrooms and other high traffic areas will be cleaned every hour. You can also help by ensuring that you use cleaning products provided to wipe down any equipment you use.
3. Will the group exercise schedules be the same as before the closure?
We have adjusted our schedules for land classes and new schedules will be posted online. The aquatic class schedule will be released in July for Phase 2. We will continue to offer virtual classes from our sister Kroc in Coeur d’Alene through the summer.
4. Why aren’t the Locker Rooms open and how will I change to get ready for my day?
The family locker room/cabana will be available. Access will be very limited in the family locker room/cabana area. We encourage you to come to The Kroc dressed for your activity to help avoid the need to change at this time. Additionally, for the first phase, please do your best to go home and get ready for your day following your workout.
5. Is there a limit to how long I can stay at The Kroc once I arrive?
We are asking people to try and complete their visits within 90 minutes. This is a recommendation to help keep the flow of people coming and going during the first phase.

8/3: Walmart and The Salvation Army are teaming up to provide new school supplies to local children in need during the “Stuff the Bus” campaign event at Walmart at Southern Ave and 35th Ave on Friday, August 7.
For kids preparing for the upcoming school year, school supplies remain critical to their success. In light of COVID-19, The Salvation Army has adapted its services to ensure that children in every community can continue receiving the educational support they deserve. This year, the “Stuff the Bus” campaign event in Phoenix is one of more than 4,500 similar events taking place at Walmart stores across the country. When shoppers visit Walmart, Friday, August 7, they can purchase and drop off requested items at Salvation Army collection bins at the front of each store.
“There are children in phoenix whose parents will have to make the tough choice between school supplies, groceries, the electric bill, or insurance,” said our Corps Officer from The Salvation Army. “We anticipate this number will increase significantly this year due to the novel coronavirus.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic, The Salvation Army has provided more than 65 million meals nationwide through a combination of prepared meals and food boxes, 1.45 million nights of safe shelter, and emotional and spiritual support to more than 778,000 people, in addition to the financial assistance, hygiene kits, and youth programs the organization provides in almost every zip code in America.
For those unable to make it to Walmart Friday, August 7, there is a searchable online registry listing all the items needed; each item requires just one click to purchase.
Walmart and The Salvation Army have collaborated for more than 30 years to meet local community needs. Supporters like Walmart help The Salvation Army serve more than 23 million Americans each year through a range of social services that help them overcome poverty and economic hardships.
All donations made at “Stuff the Bus” campaign events will remain in the community to help The Salvation Army provide back-to-school support to local children in need.
