HIGHLAND PARK RECREATION CENTER
Recreation Center Usage and Dates: Due to the demand by various groups for use of the Recreation Center Gymnasium at Highland Park for indoor sports, the following criteria has been developed. Application procedure: Organizations requesting gym time must completely fill out the Facility Agreement. Agreement must list first and second choices for specific dates and times requested. Time allotments: League play - No limit Team play - 1 1/2 hours Practice sessions - 1 1/2 hours. Requests must be received by the Parks and Recreation Department no later than September 1st. Notification of facility applicants will be made the week of September 21st. Incomplete Facility Agreement forms will be returned and may jeopardize your selection. Confirmed users must submit rosters and insurance certificates at least two weeks prior to use of the facility. No play will occur until these are received! NOTE: User selection will be based on a random selection process maximizing the use of the facility. Town of Union Parks & Recreation programs have priority. To assist us in scheduling, please indicate your group’s priority number on the upper right corner of the Facility Agreement Form using the numbers listed. The usage priorities will be as follows: 1. Town of Union based leagues comprised exclusively of Town residents* 2. Town of Union based leagues comprised of a majority of Town residents* 3. Town of Union based teams comprised exclusively of Town residents* 4. Town of Union based teams comprised of a majority of Town residents* 5. All others * Addresses will be verified.
ADDITIONAL NOTES: Leagues will be given priority to maximize the number of players utilizing the facility. Prior usage will not be a determining factor in selection process in order to assure every organization a fair chance to be allotted gym time.
