Facilities and Rentals

The Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre features a variety of sporting, educational and commercial facilities and services. 

As we adapt to the Covid-19 reality, our facility will operate very different. Spaces will have enforceable capacity maximums.

Other changes include:

  • Closed change rooms
  • Increased cleaning measures between bookings
  • Single direction traffic control
  • Closed water fountains

Local sports organizations must adhere to the new facility health and safety protocols as well as those established by their provincial sporting associations. 

All other bookings must also adhere to the facility health and safety protocols. Booking requests will be carefully reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure they meet our guidelines.

If you would like to book a space, please complete the Reservation Request Form. Our Booking and Event Coordinator will follow up within three business days to discuss.

If you have any questions about making a booking, please email alicia.smith@unbc.ca

The safety of staff and patrons is our #1 priority. Some of the changes to the facility are temporary while some may become permanent.

As the Covid-19 situation evolves, so will our response. Your cooperation is key to the Northern Sport Centre’s successful re-open.

We will only accept 100% compliance. User groups must ensure their participants follow our guidelines. If they fail to do so, they will asked to leave the facility and may not be welcome to return.
