    2. Feasibility Study
  1. New Business
    1. Ashley’s Announcement
      1. After school started, tri exec offered Ashley a position on their committee ( position: neighborhood and city relations)
        1. She has chosen to take the position and will have to resign from the Rec Board according to the bylaws, but she will try to attend rec board meetings as much as she can.
    2. New member recruitment
      1. We need 2 members
        1. One vice president
    3.  Feasibility study update
      1. Met with student affairs leadership team
        1. The need is obvious
        2. Need more detail with the master plan
        3. Need to bring in a consultant
      2. Not moving as fast as we would like
      3. Tom Goodhew (tri exec) informed us that one of the vice chancellors are behind us on the feasibility study and would like to have it done by the spring referendum
        1. Can be done in 3-4 months but it is not recommend & might not be the best thing to do
      4. If we don’t get it to pass it is going to be harder in the future to get it passed
    4. Diane’s facility requests
      1. Tabled for Tuesday
    5. NIRSA/Big 12 Conference
    6. Swim Team proposal
      1. Objective is to obtain lanes 1-8 of the competition pool for CU swim and dive practice, Monday-Friday 3:30-5:30pm
      2. Numbers are up – 90 people have already paid dues
        1. Last year had 75 swimmers paid dues on time
      3. 4 lanes in Clare Small
        1. 2 large lanes, 2 small end lanes
        2. Typically there are 12 swimmers in each lane
      4. The idea is to have recreation swimmers use Clare Small while the swim team uses the competition pool
      5. 8.5 recreational swimmers on average during 3:30-5:30 in the competition pool
      6. CU swim team wants to provide a successful opportunity for swimmers to have optimal practice space
        1. If the swim team moves to the competition pool, there will be 8 swimmers per lane
      7. We have given the CU swim team 2 lanes in the competition pool since 2003
      8. CU swim team would consider using only 7 lanes instead of 8 lanes in the competition pool
        1. Leave the handicap lane open
      9. Barb: if we switch recreation swimmers over to the Clare Small pool, then we have 3 pools that we need to have guarded, which would mean that we need to increase the number of lifeguards on staff
        1. As far as the handicap lane goes, the ramp is very difficult to take in and out of the pool
        2. Suggested to switch shifts (times)
        3. Safety issue – swim coach is “on guard” during practice but there have been recent accidents at other schools and we want to make sure that we are providing a safe environment, so we would need to look deeper into hiring more guards
      10. CU swim team would consider changing their requested times
        1. Anything after 5:30pm Clare Smalls is booked for classes and Masters have the pool in the morning, therefore there is no other good time for the CU swim team to use the comp pool      
      11. Colin: Swimmers arrange their school schedule around swim practice, so it would be hard to change practice times mid-season
        1. The numbers that the CU swim team has given us is based on the first 2 and a half weeks of school
      12. Herb: is concerned about the numbers
        1. The counts were done a random time during the hours of 3:30-5:30pm
          1. A count could have been taken at a time when the whole swim team was doing drills in Clare Smalls
      13. There are days when the swim team crams all 60 swimmers into Clare Small to do drills together so the numbers are skewed in the aspect that some days only a few CU swimmers are using the comp lanes on a given day
      14. Ashley: An issue that should be discussed is the number of lifeguards
        1. One lifeguard can legally only watch 25 people…so if there is 40 people in the comp pool, we are going to need more guards
      15. Cheryl: this is not an all or nothing issue. What about giving them a few days a week
        1. Cheryl wants to help the CU club team lower their drop rate
      16. The lanes in the comp pool are significantly larger than the lanes in Clare Small
        1. Also there is no wake
      17. Ashley: Try out their proposal for a week and see how it works and the feedback we receive. Then try giving them only 7 lanes or a few days week
      18. Jessica spoke with swimmers during the spring about the issue.
        1. One man told her that he would be less satisfied but he would swim in Clare Small if that was his only option
        2. Jessica wants to make sure that recreation swimmers know that there are other options
          1. Most do not know about the Clare Small pool
      19. Colin: we have the built in flexibility to give the CU Swim team a two week trial and if it does not work out, we can deny their request
        1. Our main goal is to Serve the Students
          1. If it means losing 2 rec members to make 80 students happy, then it would be worth it
          2. We are already dissatisfying students in intramurals, instructional program, etc… because we have limited facility space
      20. Tim: there is no win here. Somebody is going to lose
        1. What about giving the swim team 2 lanes in the comp pool and let them use it for the month of September. Then reassess this issue in October and look at the numbers and the reactions of rec swimmers 
      21. Since two pools are being used, it cuts their coaching time in half because Lynn is running in between both pools
        1. It also takes away some unity of the team because the comp pool swimmers finish before the swimmers in Clare Small
      22. Theresa: cannot see giving peak hours to the CU swim team
        1. Why is swim team different from other club sports? Many club sports are dealing with facility issues too.
          1. Most club sports are only allowed to have a certain number of participants at a time. As for swimming, you are allowed to enter as many swimmers as you want in a meet.
            1. They allow every individual to compete at whatever level they would like
        2. Does not want this proposal to limit students who are full paying and use the comp pool during the peak hours
          1. The CU swim team does not cut anyone; everyone can swim at any level that they want
      23. Herb: thinks that it is an arrogant attitude to only accept an all or nothing proposal. He thinks that they should try out Tim’s suggestion to a trial run of 2 comp lanes during the month of September
      24. Eric suggested to raise the dues so that the CU swim team can afford to have an assistant coach. That way they will not be running from one pool to the other
      25. The rec center offers a lot of programs to teach people to swim
      26. Tyler: Hockey and lacrosse club pay close to $2,000. The CU swim team pays only $200. He would like them to come back to us with what it would cost to raise a new coach.
      27. John: master swim was based on the time frame – there are not too many rec swimmers at that time. John thinks that it is time to make a motion and vote on it.
      28. Eric thinks that the lanes for handicaps should always be open

Eric made a motion to allow the CU swim team to have 7 lanes in the comp pool for 2 weeks and to have a follow up with the numbers to hire another coach.
No one seconded it.

Tyler made a motion to give the CU swim team 7 lanes in the comp pool but only on MWF, then to reassess the proposal. Also to come back to us with numbers for hiring another coach.
Eric seconds the motion.

  1. Diane asks that we wait till Wednesday to start so that we can inform rec swimmers with signs about the change going on.
  2. It will start next Wednesday, September, 16th and go till the 25th
  3. Herb: there needs to be a formal way for rec swimmers to give us feedback

Recreation Board Meeting 9-15-09

Attendance:

  1. Call to Order 5:40pm
    1. Minutes are approved
  1. Chair’s Report
    1. Feasibility study status
      1. Tom: We want to wait till after the regent meeting (tomorrow)
      2. We are waiting to gather feedback from several areas
      3. Meeting to draw up a Strategic plan to get the 25% student vote that we need
        1. This is a big deal & very hard to achieve
  2. New Business
    1. Diane’s Facility Requests
      1. Reservation requests: the rec center has the right to schedule all recreation fields (sewall, franklin, kitt, will vill, & business), anything in the rec center, and Carlson in the evenings M-F & weekends.
      2. Our programs come first! (club sports, intramurals, instruction programs, etc…)
      3. Anything that would interfere with the rec center’s general usage must go through the rec board
      4. See Sheet: Red shows areas increase over the years
        1. With the economy we need to keep people to come back
        2. Diane is proposing a 5% increase across the boards except with the ice rink.
          1. We have a very low price for the ice rink
          2. 7% increase for the ice rink
        3. Diane is looking into making a campus rate vs an off campus rate
          1. or seasonal
        4. If a student group is doing a function that is sponsored by their group, they are not charged anything but a maintenance fee.
        5. This 5% increase is to help with the inflation over the past few years
        6. Now that we have night time custodian crew, there is also going to be a custodian fee
        7. What if it is a student-affiliated club?
          1. This will be looked into
        8. Parking is an issue. You have to pay to park here.
          1. Ice Rink users (hockey parents) have to pay to park and watch their kids. So when you incorporate the amount they are paying to park, their rental is very close to the market price.
          2. Reoccuring rental groups are charged the ice rink fee rather they show up or not.

Tyler moves to approve Diane’s Proposal.
Theresa Seconds.
Motion passes 6-0

Diane will come back to the rec board with information about seasonal charge

Special permission requests

      1. Boulder Emergency Squad
        1. Dive well – Sat. 26th 2-6pm
        2. Semi Annual Request – we do not charge them
          1. The only one for free for an outside group on the list of facility requests
          2. This is becoming a precedence & Colin thinks that we need to start getting away from this 
          3. A sub committee would be a good step in the direction of getting rid of precedence
          4. We are the only facility with a deep water well to be used
          5. We do not need guards on stand because they have their instructors on deck
          6. Suggested that this will be the last semester they will be given the deep tank for free           
            1. Next semester they will get a discount

          1. Rec swimmers would have to be moved
          2. There is no day during the week that this request would work
          3. Unfortunately the department has already printed their dates
        5. Issue: a Department trying to schedule facility time vs Student group trying to schedule facility time
          1. How can you prove that the department is scheduling for a student group
          2. Student group – must be RUN by students  
        6. Theresa – tell the group that we can only offer them a weekend to do this event – not our fault that they printed their dates
        7. Bruce – maybe only give them two hours (8-10pm) instead
        8. The only thing that would interfere with the students is the use of the pool – so what if we charge them a % of the comp. pool
        9. They will be charged for the guards on stand
        10. The rec center is open for 119 hours per week – they are only asking for 4 hours
          1. If we let swimmers know a head of time that this event is going on they can rearrange their schedule

Theresa: Motion to approve the proposal, with the exception of only 2 conference rooms and letting them know that this is the last semester that this will be given to them for free. They should expect to get charged a fee next time.

        5. Cheryl wants to know where the reluctance comes from to have a large student event while still being able to offer other open rec center facilities
          1. Ex. Another gym to move recreational users to
          2. The rec center is currently not built to be a conference center or concert venue 
        6. Tom is curious what their risk management plan is for this event
          1. We have a safety committee that they have to meet with and have their plans approved (you need police, extra support, etc…)
        7. Colin wants this to be only open to students, not the public
        8. We will have the expansion gym open for regular rec users

          1. One vice president
      3.  Feasibility study update
        1. Met with student affairs leadership team
          1. The need is obvious
          2. Need more detail with the master plan
          3. Need to bring in a consultant
        2. Not moving as fast as we would like
        3. Tom Goodhew (tri exec) informed us that one of the vice chancellors are behind us on the feasibility study and would like to have it done by the spring referendum
          1. Can be done in 3-4 months but it is not recommend & might not be the best thing to do
        4. If we don’t get it to pass it is going to be harder in the future to get it passed
      4. Diane’s facility requests
        1. Tabled for Tuesday
      5. NIRSA/Big 12 Conference
      6. Swim Team proposal
        1. Objective is to obtain lanes 1-8 of the competition pool for CU swim and dive practice, Monday-Friday 3:30-5:30pm
        2. Numbers are up – 90 people have already paid dues
          1. Last year had 75 swimmers paid dues on time
        3. 4 lanes in Clare Small
          1. 2 large lanes, 2 small end lanes
          2. Typically there are 12 swimmers in each lane
        4. The idea is to have recreation swimmers use Clare Small while the swim team uses the competition pool
        5. 8.5 recreational swimmers on average during 3:30-5:30 in the competition pool
        6. CU swim team wants to provide a successful opportunity for swimmers to have optimal practice space
          1. If the swim team moves to the competition pool, there will be 8 swimmers per lane
        7. We have given the CU swim team 2 lanes in the competition pool since 2003
        8. CU swim team would consider using only 7 lanes instead of 8 lanes in the competition pool
          1. Leave the handicap lane open
        9. Barb: if we switch recreation swimmers over to the Clare Small pool, then we have 3 pools that we need to have guarded, which would mean that we need to increase the number of lifeguards on staff
          1. As far as the handicap lane goes, the ramp is very difficult to take in and out of the pool
          2. Suggested to switch shifts (times)
          3. Safety issue – swim coach is “on guard” during practice but there have been recent accidents at other schools and we want to make sure that we are providing a safe environment, so we would need to look deeper into hiring more guards
        10. CU swim team would consider changing their requested times
          1. Anything after 5:30pm Clare Smalls is booked for classes and Masters have the pool in the morning, therefore there is no other good time for the CU swim team to use the comp pool      
        11. Colin: Swimmers arrange their school schedule around swim practice, so it would be hard to change practice times mid-season
          1. The numbers that the CU swim team has given us is based on the first 2 and a half weeks of school
        12. Herb: is concerned about the numbers
          1. The counts were done a random time during the hours of 3:30-5:30pm
            1. A count could have been taken at a time when the whole swim team was doing drills in Clare Smalls
        13. There are days when the swim team crams all 60 swimmers into Clare Small to do drills together so the numbers are skewed in the aspect that some days only a few CU swimmers are using the comp lanes on a given day
        14. Ashley: An issue that should be discussed is the number of lifeguards
          1. One lifeguard can legally only watch 25 people…so if there is 40 people in the comp pool, we are going to need more guards
        15. Cheryl: this is not an all or nothing issue. What about giving them a few days a week
          1. Cheryl wants to help the CU club team lower their drop rate
        16. The lanes in the comp pool are significantly larger than the lanes in Clare Small
          1. Also there is no wake
        17. Ashley: Try out their proposal for a week and see how it works and the feedback we receive. Then try giving them only 7 lanes or a few days week
        18. Jessica spoke with swimmers during the spring about the issue.
          1. One man told her that he would be less satisfied but he would swim in Clare Small if that was his only option
          2. Jessica wants to make sure that recreation swimmers know that there are other options
            1. Most do not know about the Clare Small pool
        19. Colin: we have the built in flexibility to give the CU Swim team a two week trial and if it does not work out, we can deny their request
          1. Our main goal is to Serve the Students
            1. If it means losing 2 rec members to make 80 students happy, then it would be worth it
            2. We are already dissatisfying students in intramurals, instructional program, etc… because we have limited facility space
        20. Tim: there is no win here. Somebody is going to lose
          1. What about giving the swim team 2 lanes in the comp pool and let them use it for the month of September. Then reassess this issue in October and look at the numbers and the reactions of rec swimmers 
        21. Since two pools are being used, it cuts their coaching time in half because Lynn is running in between both pools
          1. It also takes away some unity of the team because the comp pool swimmers finish before the swimmers in Clare Small
        22. Theresa: cannot see giving peak hours to the CU swim team
          1. Why is swim team different from other club sports? Many club sports are dealing with facility issues too.
            1. Most club sports are only allowed to have a certain number of participants at a time. As for swimming, you are allowed to enter as many swimmers as you want in a meet.
              1. They allow every individual to compete at whatever level they would like
          2. Does not want this proposal to limit students who are full paying and use the comp pool during the peak hours
            1. The CU swim team does not cut anyone; everyone can swim at any level that they want
        23. Herb: thinks that it is an arrogant attitude to only accept an all or nothing proposal. He thinks that they should try out Tim’s suggestion to a trial run of 2 comp lanes during the month of September
        24. Eric suggested to raise the dues so that the CU swim team can afford to have an assistant coach. That way they will not be running from one pool to the other
        25. The rec center offers a lot of programs to teach people to swim
        26. Tyler: Hockey and lacrosse club pay close to $2,000. The CU swim team pays only $200. He would like them to come back to us with what it would cost to raise a new coach.
        27. John: master swim was based on the time frame – there are not too many rec swimmers at that time. John thinks that it is time to make a motion and vote on it.
        28. Eric thinks that the lanes for handicaps should always be open

     

    Eric made a motion to allow the CU swim team to have 7 lanes in the comp pool for 2 weeks and to have a follow up with the numbers to hire another coach.
    No one seconded it.

    Tyler made a motion to give the CU swim team 7 lanes in the comp pool but only on MWF, then to reassess the proposal. Also to come back to us with numbers for hiring another coach.
    Eric seconds the motion.

    1. Diane asks that we wait till Wednesday to start so that we can inform rec swimmers with signs about the change going on.
    2. It will start next Wednesday, September, 16th and go till the 25th
    3. Herb: there needs to be a formal way for rec swimmers to give us feedback

     

    Motion Passes 5-0
