Recreation North Activities

NOTICE: As of 11:00pm, Monday, March 16, 2020, the Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre will be closed until further notice. 
The Northern Sport Centre Ltd. Board of Directors (a partnership between the City of Prince George and UNBC) has decided it is in the public interest to close the facility given the nature of activities that take place there and to promote social distancing in response to COVID-19. This decision aligns with the closure of a number of other recreational facilities in Prince George.  


NSC Male and Female Basketball playersWe are a busy, multi-sport and fitness facility. Priority bookings for the fieldhouse and three gymnasiums are reserved for local sports organizations such as the Northern United Football Club, Northern Adapted Sports, or events like our UNBC Timberwolves basketball games.

Space availability is subject to community bookings. Availability is updated via notices posted at the front desk at the NSC, the website, and on social media.


Upcoming Closure Dates

  • The facilities are shared by members and user groups - be respectful and courteous as per the rules outlined in the NSC Code of Conduct.
  • Outdoor shoes are not permitted in the fieldhouse or gyms.
  • We are a user-paid facility. If you are not a member, the drop-in fee must be paid.
  • Pickleball and badminton racquets can be rented for $2.00 + applicable taxes (limited availability).
