Masks Requirement

In compliance with the University Mask policy, masks are required inside all IM-Rec facilities for all activities, except when actively swimming. 

Slaughter Rec Center

Slaughter Recreation Center, located next to first year housing, gives students the change to enjoy Intramural-Recreation Sports in their own backyard. Slaughter recreation is the home of the Outdoor Adventure program and Climbing Center, and houses a renovated functional fitness room with cardiovascular training equipment, three-courts gymnasium with indoor soccer rink, multi-purpose rooms and racquetball courts. Built in 1979, the Center is named for Edward Ratliff "Butch" Slaughter, Sr.

Facility Features

It is our intention to make as many healthy activities available without compromising the safety of students or staff. The continued success is a shared responsibility among all of us to be informed and work together for the safety of our community.

  • We are working hard to make recreational opportunities available and keep them available. University leadership determined this temporary mask policy was the best balance to mitigate risk while allowing most recreational opportunities. We understand masks limit certain forms of exercise, but we believe open buildings with masks are better than closed buildings. Though we cannot expect universal agreement on the policy, we thank you for your continued compliance, support and patience. And remember, it’s temporary! 
  • Hand sanitizers and fitness wipes are available throughout the centers to keep self and equipment sanitized.
  • Staff and Students/Members are not permitted if they have or show symptoms of COVID-19; please stay home if you show any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Face masks are required while in the recreation centers per UVA's policy SEC-045 on Face Masks, Physical Distancing, Social Gatherings, and Enforcement.
  • To keep the gyms open this fall, indoor, open-rec basketball is temporarily suspending due to the difficulty of maintaining compliance with the University’s Mask Policy. Outdoor basketball at MEM Gym, behind Copely’s softball field and supervised, Intramural basketball is available. 

As COVID restrictions change, we will modify our operations, as quickly as we can, to remain consistent with state and University decisions. We'll continue to keep you updated, so check back frequently to stay informed.
