COVID-19: Health and Safety Plan

Athletics

Revised January 6, 2021

Arcadia is currently offering limited use access to select University facilities such as Kuch Center. 

Athletic facilities available for student usage in the Kuch Center and fields include the Alumni Gymnasium, Indoor Track (closed for renovation until January), Fitness Center, Aerobics room, Lenox Pool, Jean Lenox West Field, Weiss Tennis Courts (seasonal),  the Dome (seasonal), and Blankley Field, with limited access to locker rooms; the Sports Training Center will be accessible to student-athletes only. 

For the spring 2021 semester, access to the Kuch Center and related athletic facilities will be limited to student-athletes (resident or commuter), residential students, and commuter students that are approved for campus access. Residential or commuter students (regardless of whether or not they are a student-athlete) must comply with all guidelines with Athletics and the University to be considered for access to the athletic facilities. Faculty and staff outside of Athletics will not be permitted to use the workout facilities though their access might change as the semester progresses. Student usage is being prioritized at the start of the calendar year.

Given the special risks associated with athletics and recreation programs, the University is continually accessing its ability to safely support these programs. Athletics will work in conjunction with the NCAA, Middle Atlantic Conference, and related sports organizations to develop guidance for varsity sports. We will update the community on the status of winter sports when information is available. Similarly, Athletics continues to review guidelines and recommendations regarding intramural, fitness, and recreational activities.
