Covid-19 Arena Guidelines
We have been working with our Primary User Groups to coordinate how we may run programing in the arena during this season. We believe this will provide all users the opportunity to run the activities as we phase in opening the fall-winter schedules. However it will not be ‘business as usual’ as we will have some restrictions in place and we may need to adjust regulations and timelines as we procced.

In order to safely and effectively utilize the Sportsplex we are immediately implementing the following:

2020 – COVID-19 Arena Guidelines and Information for bookings

1. Face coverings must be worn upon entering, removal only when participating in physical activity on the surface.  Children under age 9, a mask is recommended. 

2.  Participants are recommended to come dressed and ready for their activity.  Rooms will be provided for participants. 

3. Arrival Time:  do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your expected booking time and please leave the area within 15 minutes after your booking time to exit the building. Do not use the showers.
