Can I bring my own trainer to your facility?

Private trainers, coaches, or instructors in the SCSC for Court Sports (excluding tennis) during drop-in public time is not allowed. Trainers, coaches, or instructors who have rented available facility space via a written contract for this purpose are welcome. The intent is to re-direct those who are deriving personal profit from conducting personal business in the Saville Community Sports Centre during the public drop-in time to conducting their business appropriately through the rental of the facility.

Does the U of A OneCard allow free access to the SCSC, like North Campus?

The Saville Community Sports Centre has a discount for University of Alberta Students and Staff but the Onecard does not provide free access to the facility at any time.
