Equipment Checkout Policy:
When equipment is checked out from the Campus Recreation Center (CRC), it is the responsibility
of the patron who checked out equipment to return equipment that same day and in the
same condition as it was when checked out. If equipment is not returned within 48
hours of checkout, the patron who checked out the equipment will owe the Campus Recreation
Center the value of the equipment plus a processing fee before being granted further
access to the CRC. If equipment is not returned within 14 days, the missing equipment
fee will be charged to the student's account.
Disc Golf Course
Catamount Link is our on-campus disc golf course featuring 13 holes and 1 practice
basket. Check out discs at the CRC equipment cage, then start at Hole #1 directly
behind the CRC.
The Intramural Fields are located across the street/creek from the football stadium
and the Ramsey Center. Depending on the semester, they accommodate two flag football
fields, two softball fields, and one rugby field. These fields are typically reserved
for Intramural Sports and Club Sport practices/games, but they can also be used for
informal recreation on a first come, first serve basis. Groups wanting to reserve
the intramural fields must fill out a facility request form.
Reid Gym and Pool
Reid Gym is the building southwest of the Campus Recreation Center, which is managed
by the School of Teaching and Learning. Located within Reid are four gymnasiums and
a pool. While the facility is mainly used for health education classes and parks and
recreation management academic classes, Intramural Sports games are often held here
too. To access upstairs Reid before 9:00pm, you can enter through the Reid Fitness
area to take the stairwell upstairs. If after 9 p.m., you must walk around to the
backside of Reid and enter through a set of double doors at the bottom of a stair
well. To get to Reid Pool, you must first enter the locker rooms and through there
you may reach the pool.
WCU is home to one of the most extensive climbing programs in the East, and we have
the tallest collegiate wall in North Carolina. The Climbing wall typically opens on
weekdays at 4pm, with additional hours for clinics, family climbs, and kids climbs
Multi-Use Trail System
Our campus contains over six miles of single-track trail perfect for mountain bikers,
hikers, and trail runners.
