Scheduling of Youth Sport Activities

During the academic year, availability of GVSU’s athletic & recreation facilities are very limited for non-GVSU groups.  Any external requests must be made by the youth sport organization, not by the individual teams for the request to be reviewed.  All activities will be required to provide the proper paperwork; to include a facility contract, insurance waiver, and tax exempt form (when applicable).
