Restricted Sports

Based on the quality of the flooring within the facility and the cost of ongoing maintenance, it is important to establish acceptable use of the gymnasium floor. Considerations for determining if a sport should be restricted are:

Potential for damage to floors
Potential for damage to walls, score clocks or other amenities
Requirement for on-site storage
Requirement for netting, caging or other paraphernalia to be raised into the building rafters.
  • Set up and take down requirements
  • Disruption to other users
  • Lining requirements (absolutely no tape of any kind to be used on the floors or walls)
Based on these criteria, the following sports are restricted from use:
  • Indoor Soccer/Futsal
  • Floor/Field Hockey
  • Dancing - tap dance or other dances that have a distinctive wear pattern
  • Lacrosse
  • Handball
  • Wheelchair Rugby
  • Rugby/football* 
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Cricket
  • Broomball
  • Any sport with music which could disruptions to other user groups
For any other sports, that are outside of the realm of (normalĂ· court sports, the information will be provided to the Facility Manager for their review and approval.

*Would depend on the type of training, dry land training with no balls would be okay
