Youth Policies

University Recreation has established specific youth policies for each area of the facility to ensure safety and organization for our patrons and staff. Youth participants must adhere to the following rules as well as the overall rules and guidelines for UREC.

  • Dependents or minors are defined as those under the age of 18.
  • Dependents are allowed in SRC during scheduled family hours.
  • All dependents entering the SRC must have an assumption of risk form on file.  Forms must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. The assumption of risk and release form is good for one calendar year.
  • An SRC member/pass user can purchase a pass that allows dependents (age 17 and younger) to use the SRC during family hours.  An SRC member/day pass user may sponsor up to five minors, including their own dependents.  All minors must have a current assumption of risk waiver on file to utilize the SRC.  Youth under age two are not required to purchase a pass to enter the facility.
  • Dependents under 14 may only participate in recreation facilities under the direct supervision of the sponsoring adult, which is defined as utilizing the same court, competing in the same game, or present in the same activity area.
  • Dependents must be at least 14 years old and accompanied by their sponsoring adult to enter the weight, cardio, or functional training areas.  Those 14 or older must attend a Weight/Cardio Orientation prior to use of the area and equipment.  (SRC members ages 16-17 may utilize the areas without adult accompaniment upon completion of the orientation).
  • Parents with small children may utilize the pool and racquetball cardio areas during family hours as long as children are confined to a car seat or stroller.
  • Children over the age of four may not be in the locker room with an opposite sex parent/guardian.  Please see the UREC Service Counter for assistance to the single occupancy/family changing room or supervision in the locker room.
  • The sponsoring adult is responsible for the behavior of their dependents.  Failure to comply may result in removal from the facility and/or the loss of future privileges for the minor and/or sponsoring adult.
