Note About Using the Glen Crest School Gym

For the teams that are using Glen Crest gyms here are the procedures for coming and going:  When using the lower gym, please enter through the lower double doors next to door #4.  These doors are around the south east backside of Glen Crest around the corner from where the maintenance building is.  Drop off and pick up should be in the lower parking area. Turning off the lights is not necessary - they are motion activated.  The custodial staff should have the doors open for us on the nights we practice.  If you run into trouble with locked doors then go to the main doors and try and find the custodial staff.  If you can't find them call TJ at (708) 601-3509 and he will try to get the doors opened for you. 

On days you use the upper gym, please enter and leave through the Front Doors.

Please make sure to leave the gym's clean and that the kids are respectful to the staff.  Please don't shoot around after practice for another 30 minutes as the staff will probably be leaving shortly after we depart. 


                                    Our Mission Statement
