Athletics and Recreation

Open Recreation

All of our Open Recreation opportunities occur in the Clark Athletic Center on the lower level.  Our staff is dedicated to maintaining open recreation space for all UMB students, faculty and staff (with current ID) to engage in various recreational activities without prior reservations. Players are encouraged to be inclusive of others during open recreation hours. Unreserved open recreation activities such as Basketball and Skating are available on a first come, first serve basis. UMB recognized groups and/or clubs are not allowed to utilize open recreation spaces or times for their activities (these groups must reserve in advance only). Times are subject to change due to special events and facility maintenance.
