INFORMAL RECREATION POLICY

 

The Rec Sports Complex is an outdoor facility consisting of nine fields, 15 tennis courts, fast and slow-pitch batting cages and the Oconee Forest.  This facility is intended for the use of UGA students, faculty and staff.

 

Informal recreation opportunities are available for UGA-affiliated patrons, schedule permitting, on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Rec Sports Complex.  Individuals may not use it for personal coaching or instructional purposes. Organized activities other than those approved by the Department of Recreational Sports are prohibited. 

 

Informal recreation is not permitted for community and non-UGA affiliated individuals and groups.  The Rec Sports Staff will monitor activity and reserve the right to ask for University identification, i.e., checking the individual's UGACard.  The UGACard is non-transferable, and any individual who uses the ID card of another person or who allows his or her card to be used by someone else is subject to disciplinary action and could forfeit recreational privileges at the Rec Sports Complex. Upon request, the UGACard must be shown to University officials. Giving false or incomplete information on the ID request form by a student and/or witness is a violation of University policy and subject to disciplinary action.

 

Informal recreation opportunities may be limited to due to scheduled special events, intramural sports program, academic classes and maintenance projects.  Semester schedules for the fields and tennis courts can be found at http://www.recsports.uga.edu/fields_tennis.php.

Groups interested in reserving an activity area should contact the Senior Coordinator for Facility Reservations at rsreserv@uga.edu. Click here for a Facility Request Form.

 

Modification of Recreational Sports Facilities and equipment is not permitted.  Patrons are not authorized to move any outdoor equipment, such as goals, due to the risk of injury.

 

Fields are subject to closure under the following conditions:

  • Inclement weather, i.e. rain, ice, etc.
  • Rest and/or rotation of the fields, in an effort to prolong playing conditions and activity
  • Field repair and maintenance

 

The Rec Sports Staff will notify patrons of field closures and will direct patrons to available recreation spaces.  Notification of the temporary closing of a field for more than one week will be posted on the Rec Sports Web site.
