Facility Policies

<<Back to Important Info

It is the responsibility of the officer of a club (president, vice president, captain, etc) to communicate this information to club members, spectators, visiting teams, and other users of recreational/athletic facilities. Failure to adhere to these policies will result in disciplinary action.

A. Alcoholic Beverages: It is prohibited to consume, provide, or sell alcoholic beverages on University of Southern Indiana grounds in association with any club event or competition. Club members are prohibited from consuming alcoholic beverages before or during any club practice or competition on or off campus. Any club function off campus that involves alcohol requires clubs to abide by all state and University policies and laws. No alcoholic beverages or glass containers are permitted on or around recreational or athletic fields.

B. Tobacco: It is the policy of the University of Southern Indiana to promote and maintain a clean and healthy working and learning environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The University expects the cooperation and commitment of all students, faculty, staff, and visitors in maintaining a smoke-free environment and an environment free from smokeless tobacco waste. Smokeless tobacco consists of the use of snuff, chewing tobacco, smokeless pouches, or other forms of loose-leaf tobacco.

Effective July 1, 2011, the University of Southern Indiana prohibits smoking or the use of tobacco or tobacco products:

  • on university-owned, -operated, or -leased property.
  • in university-owned, -operated, or- leased vehicles.

The use of tobacco or tobacco products in personal vehicles on university-owned, -operated, or -leased property is allowable. This policy extends to all university property and all campus sports facilities.

C. Inclement Weather: The RFW will have the final decision on field conditions and weather-related decisions. The RFW staff will make decisions as to the condition of the fields when possible, but also will depend on each club when determining whether the scheduled practice/competition will destroy the field space. Clubs should utilize their best judgment when fields are wet and possibly unsafe. In the case of sudden inclement weather, it is the responsibility of the club to clear and stay off the fields. Clubs are responsible for any damage to any field/activity space. This should be kept in mind when deciding whether to use a wet field for practice or competition.

D. Clubs should inspect the fields prior to every use. It is the responsibility of the club to report field hazards to the Program Coordinator. If the field is unsafe, practices/competitions must be cancelled or moved to an alternate location until the problem is corrected. In case of emergency, contact USI's Office of Public Safety to determine if grounds personnel are available to help. Dial 911 if there is a life or death emergency or call 812-492-7777 for campus security.

E. For the safety of all participants, pets on a leash are permitted on recreational fields. Owners must clean up after their pet.

F. Vehicles must be parked in the designated parking areas. No vehicles are permitted on recreational/athletic fields.

G. Clubs are responsible for policing the facility and placing all trash in the containers provided.

H. Club Sports are not permitted to provide a game site for two non-University of Southern Indiana teams. Tournaments may be an exception to this policy when the tournament has been approved by the Program Coordinator and Director, and when facilities have been scheduled through Scheduling Services.
