Facility Update

The Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre (NSC) will re-open to the public on Friday, Aug. 18.

For the remainder of August, the NSC will be open:

  • Monday – Friday, 5:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Weekends from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.

In September, the hours will be:

  • Monday – Friday 5:30 a.m. – 11 p.m.
  • Weekends from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Members can continue to get their refunds for July and August at the reception desk from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Non-members can utilize the facility at the regular drop-in rate.

The NSC had been closed since July 10 while it was being used as a group lodging site for evacuees from the Cariboo region that were under evacuation order due to wildfires affecting a large portion of the province.

In early August, the remainder of the evacuees who were still under an evacuation order were relocated to commercial lodging in Prince George.

The demobilization of the NSC began on Aug. 10 as crews removed cots and the plywood flooring from the field house. Thorough cleaning and maintenance followed.
