Minor Policy

Minor Definition:
As defined by the Office of Campus Recreation, for the purpose of accessing the Campus Recreation Center, a minor is anyone 18 years of age or younger where a guardian and minor relationship exists. The maximum age for this relationship to exist for Campus Recreation Center membership purposes is 18 years of age, per Alabama State Law.
Everyone is allowed in during all hours of operation.

KidZone:
In order to provide the safest and highest quality program, we are adding child care facility personnel to our staff. These individuals are CPR, First Aid, and AED certified for children and infants. We believe this transition will allow for growth in youth programming areas and are very excited about this change. However, this transition will directly affect the hours of KidZone. Effective March 10, 2014, KidZone drop in service will only be available during the set hours below. With the change in hours, children are not limited to the 2 hour time limit, but will need to be picked up before the KidZone closes. The parent/guardian still must stay in the facility while their child is in KidZone. The price will continue to be $10 a month or $5 per visit. Attached you will find our waiver which states you assume all risk that may arise out of or result from the use of the equipment or facilities, and/or services of UAB Campus Recreation for your minor. In the event of an emergency within the facility while the minor is under KidZone supervision, you will hold sole responsibility of care for the minor. However, if an immediate emergency occurs, the Campus Recreation staff will proceed with care without consent until parent/guardian arrives. If you have any questions or concerns with the changing policy, please do not hesitate to contact Dominic DiMauro at 205-996-4938.
