Time Too Constraints Crowded

Parking Availability


We closed the survey January 3 with 641 individuals completing the surveys. We have been reviewing these results and would like share with our campus what we have learned. The resounding feedback on our survey indicates that we need expanded space and opportunities. We are seeing very crowded areas within the weight room, on the basketball courts, and at our outdoor field spaces. Your continued input and survey participation is essential as the department actively pursues facility and program expansion.

Facility Survey Report

Last fall the Recreation Center distributed a survey all across campus. We hosted table sessions, we emailed, we posted on facebook––we even offered prize incentives to encourage our campus community’s input regarding the Recreation Center and the programs within University Recreation.

Remember, it was students just like you who built the current Recreation Center. It is up to you to get involved to help improve and expand what we have. Please utilize the comment cards available at the front desk, and seek involvement with or on the Recreation Center advisory board. We’re looking to our members to help define the future of University Recreation.

COLLEGIATE SPORT CLUBS Corey Sinclair • 509-963-3516 • corey.sinclair@cwu.edu www.cwu.edu/rec/sportclubs

The Collegiate Sport Clubs program provides students with the chance to participate in competitive sporting activities and abundant leadership opportunities. Previous experience is not required. Each club is initiated, maintained and managed by its student members. Although the program is partially funded by Services and Activities fees, fundraising is also an essential component of every club. The degree of competition varies. Some clubs compete nationally, which may require rigorous training multiple times per week throughout the year. Other clubs are more interested in the opportunity to compete, and may meet just once or twice per week. Regardless of each club’s individual goals, our intention is to ensure these opportunities are available; to provide support that fosters leadership, organization and communication; and to manage the risk involved. The Collegiate Sport Clubs staff has the privilege of meeting regularly with club officers to discuss their needs and the specific challenges each club is facing. Club membership is not limited just to CWU students. CWU faculty, staff and community members are eligible to participate in the functions of the club; however, competition is restricted to CWU students only.

WATCH THE GAMES ON CHANNEL 15

Recent matches will be aired for several days after each event. View the schedule at www.kcwutv.org.

CHALLENGE COURSE challenge@cwu.edu • 509-963-3539 • www.cwu.edu/rec/challengecourse

Perfect for clubs, teams, coaches, businesses, community and youth groups, CWU’s Challenge Course offers opportunities to accomplish both individual and group goals on low-ropes elements and a state-of-the-art high Challenge Course. This unique learning opportunity allows groups or individuals to face challenges in a controlled environment while enhancing team-building, problem solving, communication, decision-making and leadership skills.

What is it? The course consists of two main entities, the high elements and the ground initiatives. The high elements include the 50-foot Alpine Tower, a mix between a rock wall and a jungle gym; the Odyssey, a two-level group ropes course with a zip-line descent; and the Giant Swing, a three-story rise from which participants swing across the giant expanse. All elements are Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) certified. We look forward to providing you an exciting and unforgettable experience!

CLIMBING WALL Ryan Hopkins • 509-963-3536 • ryan.hopkins@cwu.edu www.cwu.edu rec/opr

The Recreation Center Climbing Wall stands 50-feet at its highest point and offers climbers an excellent mental and physical workout. Three types of climbing are offered at the Climbing Wall. 1. Bouldering is un-roped climbing below the 14-foot designated bouldering height. 2. Top-rope climbing is a format of climbing in which a climber’s rope runs through an anchor at the top of the wall, with one end of the rope tied off to the climber and the other controlled by a belayer (who controls the climber’s rope to avoid him/her from falling) at the base. 3. Lead climbing is a more advanced form of climbing also offered here at Central. *Please check in with Climbing Wall staff for further details about all of these climbing formats.

Frequently Answered Questions Do I have to pay to use the Climbing Wall? NO! The use of the Climbing Wall is a part of your Recreation Center membership. The only potential costs are the optional amenities of the wall, such as shoe rentals, classes and certifications.

Do I have to be experienced to use the Climbing Wall? NO! This is an awesome opportunity to get into climbing for the first time. People of all experience levels use the Climbing Wall. Whether you have climbed for years or are trying for the first time, our staff is available to provide support for all ability levels.
