Annually, Recreational Sports works diligently during the summer to improve and care for your facilities.
Throughout the summer we repair and improve your facilities. Rather than interrupt students and member throughout the academic year, we have identified the lowest-use time within Recreational Sports in the summer to accomplish our work.
