Bronco Recreation Intramural Complex members will soon be subject to new policies as outlined in its membership agreement presented to Associated Students, Incorporated during its senate meeting on Thursday.
Changes to the document which every student must sign prior to becoming an official BRIC member range from minor logistical changes such as the language within the document.
In addition to policy formatting adjustments and actual policies that will impact current BRIC users, such as attire requirements.
“This is the most significant revision this policy document has undergone since its inception for the opening of the building,” said Krista Smith, director of recreation for the BRIC.
One of the most notable changes is who is permitted into the BRIC to use the facility.
“We are no longer recommending anyone under the age of 18 be eligible for a membership or guest pass unless they are a student at Cal Poly Pomona,” Smith said.
Smith clarified that the BRIC will continue to offer special programming and special services specifically for youth, however, under the new policy, BRIC membership will not be an option for this group.
A change that will greatly benefit campus clubs that utilize the amenities of the BRIC is an increase in time allowed on a daily and weekly basis.
Smith said she was excited to announce that “student clubs will now have the option to request additional weekly or daily hours with director approval”.
The increase changes the available times to qualifying clubs from 10 hours per week to a total of 12 hours each week, with additional hours available for exceptions.
Many campus clubs are eligible to reserve facilities in the BRIC for practices, meetings and other programs without paying fees in several instances.
However, there are exceptions which would cause a cost to incur, and clubs are encouraged to review these instances as outlines in the current facility use manual.
The use of chalk in the assistance of exercises is no longer listed as a restriction, and changes to the smoking and vaping policy section have been made to reflect that CPP is now a smoke-free campus.
Anatomically specific regions are now listed as requirements that must be covered while utilizing the BRIC for purposes of modesty and cleanliness, such as the “majority” of skin on the chest, back and abdomen that must be covered by a shirt.
Smith noted that, though this policy change is the most significant change made yet, the changes are a reflection of the current BRIC policies.
