13 Athletics. TJAGLCS has a small gym room with some cardio, free weights, and machines on-site. However, we have a contract with Gold’s Gym (about 5 min away) which allows all staff and faculty and their families to have access free of charge. We are allocated 50 slots per day. All you need to do is bring your military ID card or your military dependant card to the gym and sign-in. There is childcare on site, but you must pay for this option out of your pocket. Since TJAGLCS is located on the University of Virginia campus, we have an agreement with UVA which allows our faculty and family members to have access to their numerous athletic facilities. You will have to pay for the membership ($345/year) – the same as UVA faculty. See the G1 section for more information and the memorandum to present to UVA. Youth Activities. There are many activities for children in the Charlottesville area. The graduate course runs a soccer program for children ages 2 through 12 years of age twice a year (Fall and Spring).
