The Northern Sport Centre is the largest multi-sports complex in northern BC. We provide professional facilities for a variety of activities and sports.
Effective December 3, 2020, all indoor and outdoor team sports for people 19 years of age and older are cancelled as ordered by the Provincial Health Officer.
As we adapt to the Covid-19 reality, our facility will operate very different. Spaces will have enforceable capacity maximums.
Other changes include:
- Increased cleaning measures between bookings
- Closed change rooms
- 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.
The Province's website lists a number of sports as examples, and it is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list. All team sports must follow these restrictions.
Indoor and outdoor sport for people under 22 years of age can continue (see section B18 of the Order) but:
- Participants must maintain a physical distance of three metres from one another
- Activities should be low risk of transmitting the virus eg. individual activities, group training that maintains physical distance
- Games, tournaments and competitions for teams are not allowed
All other bookings and events 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 our 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 email@example.com
The safety of staff and patrons is our #1 priority. Some of the changes to the facility are temporary while some may become permanent. 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.
The Northern Sport Centre is located at the entrance to the UNBC campus. We are a quick drive from downtown and the airport.
