Hours

Our plan to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our facilities includes a newly-implemented policy of pre-registering for exercise timeslots at McComas Hall.

Update

September 2, 2020: 6:00 a.m.

Beginning September 7, pre-registration will be required at all times for exercise at McComas Gym. 

Beginning September 7, McComas Hall Gym will require pre-registration for exercise throughout the entirety of its open hours. Extending pre-registration to the entire day will continue Rec Sports’ commitment to minimizing excessive lines and congestion.

Patrons can pre-register for a time slot up to three days in advance. 75 exercise time slots are available every 30 minutes throughout the entirety of the facility’s open hours. Time slots dictate check-in times and do not require patrons to leave at a predetermined time. Rec Sports staff will continue to monitor occupancy to ensure adequate physical distancing.

If schedule conflicts arise and participants cannot fulfil their reservation, cancelation of pre-registered timeslots are allowed and encouraged. Walk-in opportunities still exist and will be available if blocks of exercise times do not fill.

Other areas impacted by updated policies include:

McComas Pool

Patrons who wish to swim should pre-register for a timeslot in the portal created specifically for McComas Pool. 8 spots will open every 30 minutes during the pool’s operational hours. Cancelations are allowed up to 15 minutes prior to check-in. 

Group Exercise

Group Exercise members pre-register for classes up to three days in advance and check in at the entrance of their respective studio. Members can register as late as 30 minutes prior to the class’ start. Cancelations are available and encouraged if the member has decided not to attend a class in which they pre-registered for.
