Non-Member Aide Access

Rec Sports members with disabilities are welcome to bring a non-member aide to assist with gym equipment and facilities access. When checking in, you must inform the Front Desk staff that a non-member aide accompanies you so they can be given access. Non-member aides are not permitted to use gym equipment or facilities except as required to assist the member. If the aide does want to use the gym equipment, they can speak to the front desk about membership. If non-member aides are using equipment, they will be asked to leave.
