622.5 Athletics Facilities
The Athletics Building (Alley Gym), Lay Physical Activities Center, Mickel Tennis Center, golf course, stadiums, track, practice fields, and playing fields are Furman's primary facilities for intercollegiate athletics and recreational purposes. Because of internal use and frequent requests for use by "outside" groups, it is necessary to have policies and procedures governing their control, supervision, and utilization.
The athletics facilities at Furman University are primarily for intercollegiate athletics practice and competition. Secondly, they are for student and faculty recreation. They are available to non-university groups only under certain conditions.
1. Supervisory control of all athletics facilities except the Lay Physical Activities Center and the golf course is by the Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics.
2. The Lay Physical Activities Center is the responsibility of the Chair of the Health and Exercise Science Department. The administrative management of the golf course is the responsibility of the Director of Administrative Services.
3. Direct control of the athletics facilities under the Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics is by the vice president or by the appropriate coach. The specific responsibilities are as follows:
4. Any use of the athletics facilities under the control of the Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics by outside groups must be scheduled by the vice president. Before approving a request for use of one of the facilities, the vice president will consult the appropriate coach concerning his or her needs for the facility. Outside groups will be allowed to use these facilities only when they are not in use by intercollegiate teams, University organizations, students, or faculty.
5. While considering the request from an outside group to use an athletics facility, the Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics will take into account scheduled Furman and outside group activities elsewhere on campus, parking, impact of noise on scheduled activities, restroom facilities, etc.
6. A financial charge will be made for use of athletic facilities by non-Furman persons.
7. All users of the athletics facilities are expected to honor the university's desire to preserve the facilities in good order and condition. It is also expected that parking and traffic regulations will be followed.
8. Requests for use of an athletics facility by an outside group must be in writing and include information such as name of group, size of group, intended purpose for use of space, duration of usage, person to be responsible, and specific description of space to be used.
9. If an athletics facility is to be used for a music event, the university must be provided with a copy of a signed agreement stating that the group has made arrangements for payment of copyright royalties. (See File 365.5.)
10. When approved, a letter must be issued to the requesting group which will serve as the permit to use the facility. Copies of the letter will be sent to Public Safety, Facilities Services, the Marketing and Public Relations Office, the switchboard, Pala Den, and dining hall for their information and in the event special assistance is needed by the approved group.
