Athletics, Fitness, and Outdoor Programs

This fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic many places in our facilities will be closed until we can safely open them to meet the mandates by the state of Oregon. We will offer a wide variety of socially distanced and remote PE courses, programs and activities to meet the current guidelines and restrictions we must operate under.

We are allowing access to the Sports Center for currently enrolled STUDENTS ONLY, please understand the college emphasis on ensuring students have as many resources as possible to create their personal health and wellness plan for student success.

Procedures/details for using the gym Fall 2020:

Hours of operation are: Monday - Friday 7am-8pm / Saturday - Sunday 12pm-4pm

Open Gym hours will be on a 1-hour reservation system for each space within the Sports Center. Use of the weight room (group A) and cardio room (group B) will be staggered by 15 minutes and allow patrons 45 minutes in each for use. Staggering areas allows staff to begin cleaning while the other area is being used, then move to the second area as new patrons enter the cleaned spaces.

Reservations for specific areas to use in the sports center will be scheduled via the website/app Schedulicity. Reservations can be made beginning on Sunday 9/20 for facility use beginning on Monday 9/21. Reservations can be made for up to two weeks in advance. We ask that no more than two (2) reservations be made per student per day. Log in details was sent to the Reed Community. Please reach out to Will Symms or Cyrus Monsef for log in assistance.
