Sponsor Yourself In
All UAB are eligible for a one week trial period of the Rec Center upon becoming a member. Once the trial period has passed, said employees are eligible to sponsor themselves in with our $8 guest pass that lasts the entire day. With this guest pass they can enter the facility throughout the day with their receipt of purchase and be a member for the day. However, when said employees sponsor themselves in, they cannot sponsor any other people in until they become a member. In other words, only members can sponsor in other guests. So come and try it out or redeem your free trial and sign up today!
