Gymnasium Policies

  • Since all games are self-monitored, good sportsmanship and proper conduct are expected.
  • Black-sole shoes and other marking shoes are not permitted on the playing floor. Clemente
    Center staff will make a discretionary decision in some special cases. 
  • For your safety, shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Grabbing or hanging on the net or rim is prohibited. Violators will be escorted from the building.
  • Baseball, football, soccer and other activities, or equipment deemed unsafe in the gymnasium
    environment, are prohibited unless special permission is obtained from the Clemente Center Director. 
  • In the event of crowded courts and waiting players, the facility supervisor has the authority to modify games.
  • Chewing gum, food and drinks are not permitted in the gyms.  
  • Scheduled activities in the gymnasium may take priority over open recreation. Changes in the schedule
    will be posted on the daily facility schedule.
  • Shirts are required unless shirts/skins team designation is needed.

Court Usage Guidelines - NO PICK-UP GAMES

  • Scheduled activities have priority (please check the daily facility schedule).
  • When the gymnasium is crowded, courts may be broken down into half-court games in order to accommodate
    more people. This decision will be made by Clemente Center staff and will be based on participant need.
  • Open Recreation: 
    • For a volleyball game to take place, there must be at least 6 people present for the net to be set up.
    • For a badminton game to take place, there must be at least 2 people present for the net to be set up.
    • There must be no event on the daily schedule or any other groups using the space for this to take place.
