SOUTH DAVIS RECREATION CENTER TO OPEN WITH LIMITED CAPACITY AND AMENITIES
The South Davis Recreation District will be reopening the South Davis Recreation Center on May 21st. The District Board decided to reopen the facility in consultation with public health officials and in accordance with the Utah Leads 4.4 phased guidelines. To ensure the safety of our patrons and employees, use of the facility will be limited in accordance with the guidelines contained in the Low Risk Phase of the Utah Leads 4.4 phased guidelines. Due to those guidelines, and direction from our District Board, our operations and programming will be different and we will outline those changes throughout our South Davis Recreation Center Low Risk Plan 1.0 document.
This plan could change depending on direction we may receive from health officials, as well as adjustments we may need to make operationally once we are open. We ask that you continue to remain patient with us during this time as we all become accustomed to these new changes.
Also, please make sure to follow all posted rules and guidelines when at the facility. Patrons who do not follow the facility guidelines will be asked to leave. If you notice other patrons not following guidelines, please talk to SDRC staff and do not confront the other patron. Please remember to sanitize and wash your hands, practice proper social distancing, and to disinfect equipment and other used items after use.
SDRC Re-Opening FAQ’s – Low Phase
How is your Low Risk Phase plan different than your Moderate Risk Phase Plan?
Our plan will remain relatively the same as our Moderate Risk Phase plan. Things can change while we are in the Low Risk Phase, and we will submit updates as soon as that happens. We will be looking at opportunities to increase the number of patrons we can allow each session, and are evaluating the possibility of open plunge and open skate sessions. More information regarding those areas will be known after our board meeting on June 1st, 2020.
Will your facility hours be the same?
Our facility hours will be slightly different than usual. We will be open Monday – Friday from 6am – 9pm, Saturday from 6am – 7:30pm, and Sunday from 12pm – 4pm.
What SDRC amenities will be open on Thursday, May 21st?
The SDRC will be open in a limited capacity offering Lap Swimming, Water Walking, Aquatic Programs, Weight and Cardio Workouts, Fitness Classes, Cycling Classes, Track, Figure Skating, and Racquetball. Please see details regarding our opening and our amenities found in our South Davis Recreation Center Low Risk Phase Plan here.
How do I access the facility on May 21st?
All patrons currently will have to register via our online web registration portal found at https://sdrd.activityreg.com/ClientPage_t2.wcs to register for a specific time and activity. Time slots are for 1 hour only. There will be limited spaces available for each time and activity, but more so than in our Moderate Risk Phase Plan. Members of the facility will have the option to register up to two days in advance for the activity, date and time they would like to participate in. For example, on May 19th members can start reserving for May 21st. All non-members to the facility would be able to register starting at noon the day before the activity takes place. For example, on May 20th by noon, non-members can start reserving for May 21st.
Patrons are asked to stay in their vehicles until 15 minutes before their activity to minimize interactions with other patrons. During the Low Risk phase, patrons who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 should not access the facility. Patrons experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms (cough, trouble breathing, sore throat, sudden change in taste or smell, fever, or muscle aches or pains), have a temperature of 100.4 or greater, have traveled out of state within the last 14 days, or who have had known contact with someone who has acquired COVID-19 should not utilize the facility.
Patrons will enter the facility in a queue line to come inside. All patrons will be required to use hand sanitizer or to wash their hands upon entering the facility and often during their time in the facility. It is also encouraged and recommended that all patrons wear face masks while entering and utilizing the facility, other than in the pool.
All reservation payments should occur on our online web registration portal. If a payment must be made at the facility, cashless payment options will be preferred. Registrations for memberships and programs will be encouraged to be done through our web portal, and all payments should be done through the web portal unless otherwise directed by staff.
Will I receive any discounts on my membership since all the facility amenities are not available?
Pass holders who are not ready to come back to the facility can tell us they want the option to defer their memberships for an additional month at this time. If a pass holder chooses not to defer, their Annual Passes will start back on May 21st, and will have an additional month added to the end of their pass on top of the 67 days already being added to their pass for the time we have been closed. Monthly EFT Pass holders who choose not to defer their pass will receive a 50% discount on their next monthly withdrawal. Please click here to review your options.
Do I need to take a cleansing shower before swimming?
Yes, before lap swimming, water walking, or aquatic classes you must take a cleansing shower. The locker rooms will be available for showers and restrooms, but lockers will not be available for use. We ask that after you are done in the pool, you exit the facility as soon as possible.
What are the rules for the Fitness Areas?
All patrons must maintain a 10 ft space with other patrons when exercising. Equipment must be cleaned after each use, and staff is on hand to monitor social distancing and for additional cleaning. Please bring your own mats for stretching if needed.
Do I need to wear a face mask while working out?
The Health Department highly recommends the use of face masks for the public. We encourage everyone to wear a mask when in the facility, other than in the pool.
Are extra steps being taken to keep the SDRC sanitized?
Yes. During this Low Risk Phase, we have changed our hours and have implemented a 30 minute cleaning time between each time slot. Patrons are being required to be vigilant about cleaning used equipment, and extra staff will be on hand to clean equipment and high contact surfaces throughout the facility regularly throughout the day. We also will have a janitorial crew cleaning the facility each night.
Will the outdoor pool or open plunge be opening Memorial weekend?
No. There will be no outdoor pool access or open plunge time in the leisure pool area. We will be discussing these items at our next board meeting on June 1st, 2020. We are hoping that things continue to trend positively, and we can start to allow these activities on a limited basis
After my hour reservation is over, can I change and get ready for work before I leave?
We ask that you leave the facility as soon as possible after your hour. This allows staff to prepare and clean for the next round of reservations. Please end your work-out earlier than your hour if you need to get ready at the facility. Once your reserved time expires, you will be asked to leave to accommodate other patrons.
To our patrons,
This afternoon, the South Davis Recreation District held a board meeting where it was decided the South Davis Recreation Center will re-open on May 21st , 2020. This date was determined by taking many factors into account, but the main concern in mind was the safety of our patrons and employees. Due to guidelines and direction we have been given from our state and local health departments, our operations will for the time being need to change to accommodate social distancing between customers and make sure we are providing the safest environment possible. Please be patient as we prepare to welcome customers back, and in the mean time we will continue to get our facility ready for your safe return while following the State of Utah’s Risk Phase guidelines. We will be providing more details about our re-opening over the next few weeks, so please keep checking our website and social media for updates. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We understand it is disappointing that the Recreation Center is still closed at this time. While the phased guidelines, from the Governor’s Office and Health Department, does address gyms and fitness centers, we know you understand that the Recreation Center is so much more than that. The recommendation from the Governor and the Health Department is for gyms and fitness centers to remain closed during the moderate risk phase; should a facility decide to open strict distancing and cleaning guidance should be adhered to. District Management is assessing how the Recreation Center could open, while adhering to the safety criteria and guidelines provided by the Health Department and be as responsible as we can be for the District and the community of South Davis County. Please be patient and watch our website and social media pages for the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your support.
“Currently, the South Davis Recreation Center remains closed to the public. We are continuing to review and evaluate the guidelines presented by our governmental leaders to prepare for when we open in the future.

“The South Davis Recreation District Board voted on 3/30/20 to continue to keep the South Davis Recreation Center closed indefinitely, extending past the prior April 6th reopening date, due to the updated developments regarding COVID-19. It was also decided that all Spring sports would be canceled as well. The board will continue to monitor all developments regarding COVID-19, will continue to meet going forward, and take into account all health department guidelines and recommendations to help determine when the recreation center and our programs will be open and ready for our customers. We are continuing our efforts to clean, update, and sanitize the South Davis Recreation Center during this time to make sure the facility is ready when we reopen. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions M-F from 8am-4pm., as well as our social media pages for continued updates regarding the South Davis Recreation District during this closure.

On March 16th, 2020, the South Davis Recreation District Board voted to close the South Davis Recreation Center along with programs and classes until April 6, 2020. The decision was based on available information regarding the COVID-19 virus and the concerns regarding the virus spreading in our community. The board also weighed heavily the recommendations provided by the Governor’s Utah Coronavirus Task Force as well as the Federal Government’s most recent recommendation for keeping gatherings of people to 10 or less. The board will continue to evaluate all the data and information regarding COVID-19 and its spread over the next few weeks to determine when the facility, programs and classes can reopen and begin again. In the meantime, all current programs and classes slated to start April 6th or later have not been canceled but their start will be pushed back one week later. We will continue to evaluate these programs as more data and information is received.
Through the information that has been provided regarding the coronavirus we want to help limit the spread as much as we can. We will be taking steps to clean and sanitize the facility so when we do open, our patrons can feel doubly comfortable that they are in a safe and sanitized environment. We appreciate your understanding and your patience through this challenging time.
The South Davis Recreation District takes the safety of our patrons very seriously, and we value each of our patrons and their health. We will continue to be in contact with our members and those who signed up for classes and programs that have been canceled while continuing to look at how we can help our valued members at the South Davis Recreation Center during this time. Please continue to follow us on our website at www.southdavisrecreation.com and social media sites for information and updates about the closure as well as to be made aware of other avenues we can help provide fitness in our community during these times. Please be safe, and we look forward to serving you again in the near future.
Our office hours will be Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:00pm to answer phone calls if you have questions.
The Coordinators for each department will contact participants to let them know what will happen going forward. Please make sure we have your correct email. This will be how you will be contacted. You may call and check with the front desk. Please be patient as we are receiving many calls.
