Woodland Gym Available to LRD Members


We are pleased to announce that Woodland School has graciously agreed to allow the new gym to be available to LRD members on Monday evenings from 6pm to 9pm and Sundays from 3pm to 9pm. We are very lucky to have this opportunity.


The ground rules:

The gym is not open for random access. We have arranged recurring time slots and a few LRD members have agreed to be trained and approved to be supervisors. We hope and expect to have supervisors available for all time slots, but that may not always be possible. Also, Woodland School always has priority for any time slots and will notify us if they need the gym.


We are working out the best way to notify the membership of available (or cancelled) time slots and expect to have an online calendar soon. Until then, you can see which slots currently have supervision at this link �


Schedule Spreadsheet



The gym will be open to LRD members and guests under the same guest policy as posted on the LRD website at this link: LRD guest policy 


We've pasted in the guest policy at the end of this message. We will be asking people to sign in so we can keep track of how many people are using the gym and can also track guests. Use of the gym is a privilege and supervisors will ask anyone not behaving appropriately to leave. We ask that children under 10 be accompanied by parents at all times. You will need to bring your own equipment (basketballs etc.).


The Gym will be open to LRD members

Sunday 3pm - 9pm

Monday 6pm - 9pm

We will need to be out promptly at 9pm each night.


Sunday 3pm - 9pm:

         3pm-4pm Half Gym is open gym and other half Pre-school/kinder basketball

No food or drink in the gym.


At the moment we're setting up the gym for basketball on both sides but would like to assess interest in other sports including badminton, dodgeball and volleyball. Soccer is not allowed in the gym. The gym is being used other evenings for AAU basketball and/or Woodland School activities. Days and hours may change in the future.


Questions may be sent to the lead supervisor
