In the interest of public safety, DTSB made the decision to cancel their signature events from now until the July 3rd First Fridays. This decision was made in close collaboration with the St. Joseph County Department of Health, following their input and recommendations. DTSB plans to remain in contact with public health officials and is prepared for the possibility of canceling future events if advised to do so. Once events resume, DTSB will make sure to adhere to any new event safety guidelines that may be in place due to continued COVID-19 preventative measures.

Important information regarding changes to the Summer Fitness Series for 2020!

In an effort to make DTSB events as safe as possible during the pandemic, the following changes have been made to this year's Summer Fitness Series:

  • Class size will be limited to 50 participants a class, and advanced registration will be required for guaranteed participation.

  • 10-foot circles will be marked on the Gridiron, 6 feet apart from each other.

  • These 50 circles will be available to registered participants, first-come, first serve.

  • Check-in for registered participants will begin 10 minutes prior to each class, and those who do not arrive at the start time of the class will forfeit their spot to walk-up participants.

  • Walk-up participants will not be guaranteed a spot, and no one is permitted to exercise in a non-circle area.

  • Masks are encouraged, but not required.

  • Participants experiencing any symptom of illness such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell should not attend this event.

  • Registration will open every Monday at noon for the Saturday classes taking place that week.

  • Participants will need to register for each class they wish to participate in. Registration is free and can be done online using the link below.

  • Participants will sign a waiver during the online registration process to make the in-person check-in as contactless as possible.

  • In the event of rain, classes will be canceled instead of moving to the garage as there is not enough space there to distance the 50 registered participants. Cancellations for rain will be announced on the DTSB Facebook page.

  • Mat rentals will not be available this summer.

  • Hand sanitizer and bottled water will be made available.

  • Any questions can be directed to Kylie at
