Open Recreation Nights at the Dome Offered on Mondays
The Loud House is about to get louder … on Monday nights, that is.
Every Monday in April (9, 16, 23, 30), the Dome will be open to students for Recreation Nights at the Dome from 8 p.m.-midnight.
At Recreation Nights at the Dome, the turf area will be available to students for open recreation play. To bring the fun, students can check out footballs, soccer balls and Frisbees for free to use on the turf. In addition to open recreation opportunities, there will be special tournaments.
Currently, there are two tournaments planned. On Monday, April 23, Recreation Services is hosting an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament. For more information and to register, access the Recreation Services intramurals website. On Monday, April 30, there will be a Knockerball inflatable sphere soccer tournament. There is no registration required for this tournament; students are invited to stop in and play. While tournament play is occurring, students are still able to use the turf for open recreation.
Recreation Nights at the Dome started as an idea from James Franco ’18, president of Student Association. Through collaboration between Student Association, Carrier Dome staff, Recreation Services and the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience, this idea is now reality.
“Student Association is beyond excited that the University listened to our idea that will help create an unsurpassed student experience and make SU unique,” says Franco. “As our long winter continues, Recreation Nights at the Dome will essentially provide an indoor park environment for students to participate in a wide range of activities or just hang out with others in a spectacular space.”
“With the great support from the Carrier Dome staff, we are excited to be able to work with Student Association and other campus partners to help provide students with a fun and uniquely Syracuse recreational opportunity,” says Matt Hackett, director of Recreation Services.
Students coming to Recreation Nights at the Dome must bring their valid SU I.D. and enter through Stadium Control at the Dome, which is at Gate B across from Sadler Hall. Students must wear tennis shoes and cannot bring in food or drink.
