Such groups are limited to use of the Schuneman Addition no more than twice a year unless other provisions have been made.

All recreational activities in which youth are not charged to attend will receive free use of the center for a time not to exceed 1 ½ hours per day and within starting and ending dates of the season as determined by each youth sports board. The security deposit will be waived for these events. Sponsor will be required to provide proof of insurance.
