• Head coaches must submit their practice schedule to the Athletic Director prior to the start of their season. Fall sports by July 1, winter sports by September 1 and Spring sports by November 1.
• Once your schedule is completed, send a copy to every opposing team with the common match highlighted. This will serve as a final check for accuracy of times, dates and sites.

FIELD HOUSE (Recreation Center)
Athletics: Exclusive use of the field house should be kept to a minimum. When possible portions of all activity areas should be available for open recreation (i.e. one court).
Intramural: scheduling will be in the evenings, Sunday to Thursday between 6pm-11pm. Open recreation space will be maintained during IM activities.
Club Sports: Team practices and competition will take place in the evening Sunday-Thursday in the evening between 6pm-11pm. Weekend use is restricted to off-peak hours. Open recreation space will be maintained during Club activities.
Once schedules have been approved, any changes must go through the Mikki Showers at the Recreation Center. She will notify the trainers, security, custodial services and the shop of any change in the regular schedule. Requests for change will not be automatically approved but are subject to priority and availability of facilities (i.e. varsity practice change when another group has already scheduled the facility).
