We know that health and safety are key for everyone right now, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure your experience is the best it can be. That said, things will look different when you visit. Reservations will be required to work out and to swim, face coverings will be required at all times while working out, and our facilities will be operating at decreased capacities, just to name a few changes.
Face coverings are required at all times except when drinking, showering or swimming in the pool
Modified facility hours to allow for increased cleaning during the day
Facility capacity limits established to assist with de-densification
Cardio and strength equipment have been moved to be 10 feet apart; selectorized and some cardio equipment can now be found on gymnasium courts in CCRB, IMSB and NCRB
Floors in strength, stretching and some racquetball areas have been marked with 10′ x 10′ orange boxes to allow for physically distanced activities for one individual at a time
No spotting in cardio and strength areas will be allowed at this time
Added plexi glass barriers to Welcome Center desks
Increased locations for disposable wipes for user cleaning
Touchless hand sanitizer stations

Indoor programming (Group‑X, Intramural Sports)
We will continue to evaluate when additional court activities and other traditional services will be allowed. This will be based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: Federal, State & University requirements, the status of campus operations, COVID data & trends, evaluation of current operations, operational needs and resources available.
UM Rec Sports App
We’re excited to share that we’ve created a new U‑M Rec Sports app to allow for contactless entry to the facilities, make facility and pool reservations, find building hours and more. Download the app by searching for “UM Rec Sports” in the iPhone App Store or the Google Play Store for Android.
Facility and pool lane reservations can be made via the webstore, the UM Rec Sports app, by calling the facility of your choosing, or in-person for your next visit. If you experience trouble making a reservation, email email@example.com.
If you are a member or student, log in as U‑M Affiliate using your Kerberos login. Do not make a new account if you are a current student, UM faculty, staff or alumni. Friends of the university, spouses or partners should sign in as a non-affiliate.
