Each team that schedules gym time will be sent a monthly calendar.  Please look at it very closely because there will also be days the gym will be closed to groups during holidays and school functions.  The gym will be closed on all snow days, all staff in-service days, and school vacations.  


Each team that uses the gyms for practices must consist of at least 50% of their players living in the Bennington School District or attending Bennington Public Schools.  You must submit a roster along with the players home addresses and your head and assistant coaches names with your gym usage paperwork.


While using the gym the sponsor is responsible for keeping everyone associated with the group in the designated area and will be responsible for damage/vandalism that occurs in the school.


Groups that neglect the school building or do not follow the above procedures will be reported to the district office and run the risk of losing their gym access or other disciplinary actions.
