Public Use of BTCS Facilities

The Department coordinates the use of BTCS facilities by the public. Any member of the public wishing to use a BTCS facility should contact the department. Public use of the facilities is governed by Bristol Tennessee Board of Education Policy Number 5.105 . The Facility Use Guidelines, required by the policy, govern the public use of BTCS facilities. All users must read, understand, and comply with the Facility Use Guidelines. For more information about using our facilities, please visit www.btcs.org. Once there, click on the "Resources" tab, then click on "Public Use of Facilities."

For large group events, such as tournaments, dinners, etc., BTCS requires that a day porter be present at the event to open and close the facility, provide day porter duties, and assist with event clean-up. Our subcontract cleaning service will provide the day porter and the after event clean up. The user will pay for this service.
