Split Court Use

When 2 courts are available for either basketball or volleyball, 1 court will be designated as an adult court (ages 16 and older) and the other will be designated as a youth court (ages 15 and under).

There will be a sign in sheet at both courts. If pick-up games are being played, teams will be formed according to the sign-up sheet. Winners will stay on the court and will play the next team on the sign in sheet. Once a team loses and those players wish to play again, participants are required to place their name back on the sign in sheet.

If you want to use the court for casual practice, and others are waiting, then you will have 20 minutes once you have signed in.

Adults can use the youth court if no one is using it but once a youth user comes to use the court then all adults must move off of the court. The same rule will also apply for if youth are using the adult side.

Adults (Ages 18+)

Children (ages 17 and under) are not allowed to participate or be in the gym during Adult Open Gym time. Please do not bring children during this designated time.
