Coaches,

As many of you are aware the Dow James Building has become a very busy facility.  We want to make sure that we are getting as many users into the facility as we can. This includes sports teams, clubs, community events, and individual family events. Each of these groups provide amazing programs to youth and our community.  It is through the cooperation of all participants that we will all be able to accomplish our individual needs for the Dow James Facility.

                 We are pleased to announce that all sport league block reservations for the Dow James can be made online at //tooelecity.activityreg.com/selectfacility_t2.wcs. You can also reach the reservation site through tooelecity.org, select Parks & Recreation department. In the “Quick Links Menu” select “Online Registrations & Reservations”, select Reserve a Park or Facility, then select Dow James Building. At receipt of this email would be a great time to make sure that you have your login and password for our online reservation and registration. Login to your account before you select your day of week and time slot. Please note reservations will only be scheduled for two-month blocks at a time.  You will still only select one day and hour that you would like to practice on. This date is the first date you would like your practice to begin, the remainder of the days will be scheduled by Parks staff, but will be the same day and time that is requested.  All reservations will open the month prior to requested block. For example…

Reservations for November-December 2022 will start October 1, 2022
Reservations for January-February 2023 will start December 1, 2022

We have included some instructions for you to select your day and time.  All spots will be scheduled on the hour.

CONTRACT: We will need your roster and liability insurance certificate emailed to parksandrec@tooelecity.org before your request will be approved. No exceptions!!

  1. CONFLICTS: Block reservation is not a guarantee that you will get each requested day of those months, a resident might already have an event or family party scheduled on one of the block weekdays that you selected. You will receive a copy of your schedule, please follow the days assigned. The Dow James building is designed for basketball use and all basketball teams will have priority for reservations over other sports.
  2. EQUITABLE USE: In an attempt to make sure the general public can still reserve the building for birthday parties and other family/community events we are asking that you do not reserve Friday 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM and Saturday 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM.
  3. WHO: Only the head coach of each team is allowed to make the reservation, please do not have assistant coaches or a parent of the team members make a reservation for the team. This will help us in making sure each of the teams get a time to practice. Duplicate reservations will result in all of the team’s reservations being canceled.
  4. PAYMENT: Cost is a $50.00 deposit + $5.00 per participant. The system is set up for a minimum of 5 participants. You will then need to enter your total participants by using the “Sports Team ONLY” drop down menu to select the number of players on your roster. We will verify this with your email submitted roster and make sure that you are charged correctly. You will be required to enter your payment at the time of reservation. Payment will not process until we approve your block request. When your block request is approved you will receive an email with your receipt. We will also send you a copy of the transaction when we email you your completed contract.

Thank you,
Tooele City Parks and Recreation
