ON-SITE ISSUES– Any issues should be brought to the Alodia supervisor's attention including issues with your coach. If it cannot be resolved, e-mail a description of the incident, and I will review if needed. Hopefully, we don’t have to use the process but there is one in place just in case.


FACILITIES – Salem Community Center along with nearby area facilities are arguably some of the nicest gym facilities in the city. Please help us keep them clean and looking great! General rule...leave the gym nicer than when you arrived. Please help us with picking up trash, throwing it away and cleaning up. We are always one bad mess away from having to move locations. We appreciate your help! NOTE: outdoor basketball pavilion at Salem is not available for public use.
