  • No Food, Beverages (other than water) or Gum are allowed on the Turf (within the fenced area).
  • No Dogs are allowed on the Turf (within the fenced area).
  • No Smoking is permitted on Campus, except in designated Gazebos.
  • Alcohol is not permitted in the Recreation Facilities areas at any time
  • No metal cleats
  • No items may be spiked/pressed into field (e.g tent stakes, corner flags, etc). Tents should not go on the field unless previously approved and appropriate tie down arrangements have been discussed.
  • All groups must be pre-booked
  • Participants/spectators must not access Field Area (fenced area) prior to the start of the booking time and must be out of the fenced area by the end of your booking time. The booked user is responsible or any user within the Fenced area during their time as well as for their spectator conduct and spectator area cleanliness.
  • Nets must be stored off play area in their appropriate spots
  • Lights will come on a few minutes prior to contracted times for pre-booked times that require the use of lighting. Lights go off 10 minutes following the end of a contracted time.
  • In the event of an injury/incident wherein bodily fluids are on the field the activity must stop and the user is required to remove any contaminants and clean the area using soap and water. Any wounds must be treated/cleaned immediately.
  • The rentor must provide for their own first aid coverage and must insure that their onsite representative is aware of  UBCO's Emergency procedures (click here for copy of), prior to using the field
  • Do not use the field whenever field lines are not visible due to snow or frost coverage.
  • During times when snow may be an issue: due to rapidly changing conditions it is the bookings/users responsibility to determine if the field conditions are suitable for their activity. Any funds paid for times when the conditions are not suitable will be credited/refunded. Do not use the field if unsure or when it is signed/locked as closed.
  • Do not use the field when there is any pooling water on it (from rain, snow melt, etc.)
  • During times when thunder/lightning may occur it is ultimately the responsibility of the booking to safeguard their participants. The general rule of thumb is that play should stop and players should leave the field when the “Flash-to-Bang” (when you see lightning and then hear it) count is 30 secs or less.  Just because it’s not raining doesn’t mean there’s no danger.  Players should go inside a building or, if unable to do so, to cars (be inside and grounded with doors/windows closed). Do not stand near the light standards, poles, player areas, bleachers, etc…  Outdoor activity should not resume until 30 mins following the last thunder.

The field is monitored. Failure to follow the above rules may result in loss of use for the group booked on the field and possible fines/charges.
