Sports & Recreation Complex

The Complex is currently open and now accepting reservations through 25Live

Our Sports & Recreation Complex (S&RC) opened in Winter of 2013. The Complex hosts one large synthetic grass multi-purpose field, two synthetic grass tennis courts (sand-filled, so they feel like a clay surface), one basketball court and a sand volleyball court. All courts and spaces are equipped with lights to be able to participate in evening recreation.

The large synthetic grass multi-purpose field is approximately 100,000 sq.ft and is equipped with a full sized soccer field and softball field. Bleacher seating surround the field for spectator viewing. The field has additional markings for flag football and ultimate frisbee.


Active UW Bothell and Cascadia College Students have access to the Sports & Recreation Complex. UW Bothell and Cascadia College Staff and Faculty can gain access by purchasing a Rec Pass that can be found through the web portal.

Open Recreation 

Allows students to independently participate in recreation at their leisure for fitness and fun as individuals or as a group. No reservation needed! This promotes a healthy, active, lifestyle through unstructured, drop-in use of the facility. The ARC Fitness Center desk  has various items that can be checked out for usage within the S&RC as well as lockers for temporary storage of personal items. 


Any individual or group wishing to use the S&RC must submit an online request through 25Live at least 72 hours in advance of the requested time. Submitting a request form does not guarantee approval. You will receive an email upon approval. Groups are limited to 6 hours weekly for Monday through Friday reservations and extends to 8 hours weekly if including Saturday or Sunday reservations.

Priority to requests is granted in the following order:

  1. Activities & Recreation Center programming
  2. UW Bothell and Cascadia College students and student organizations
  3. UW Bothell and Cascadia College affiliations (Academics Courses and Faculty Members for permitted student events)

Note: At this time, we cannot accept third party (non-University) reservations.

The Program Manager of Intramurals and Outside Facilities reviews all request. If there, any questions in regards to the Sports & Recreation Complex or approved activities please contact  All playing surfaces are available at any time the Sports and Recreation Complex is open. If needed, reservations can be made for nontraditional complex hours.


Lights will come on at dusk and will stay on for all S&RC facility hours. For the Soccer/ Softball field, all lights will come on automatically. For the Sand Volleyball, Basketball, and Tennis courts, the silver button must be pressed on the pole besides each court's entrance gate.
