University of California San Diego (UCSD) gymnasiums
RIMAC & Rec Gym
The UCSD Rec Gym is near the southwest corner of UCSD campus, it’s #7 on the campus map: UCSD map of Sports Facilities
Sometimes we even get to practice at the UCSD RIMAC Center, pictured above!
Directions to Rec Gym at UCSD:
From North Torrey Pines Road (driving north from La Jolla), turn onto UCSD campus at La Jolla Shores Drive, then take an immediate left onto Scholars Drive South. The large grass field (Muir Field) will be on your right. Turn right onto Scholars Lane at the tennis courts. Follow Scholars Lane (short drive) to a small metered parking area (P201) to drop off your daughter. From this small parking area, walk southward between the Main Gym and Natatorium to get the the REC GYM (UCSD Recreation Gymnasium).
We recommend DROP-OFF, since parking is tricky with the college pay lots/meters.
For your convenience, we will have one of our La Jolla Volleyball coaches or parents available at the P201 parking lot to walk your daughter to the gym if you prefer to drop off.
If you will be parking on the UCSD campus you will need to purchase a permit or use the parking meters. Hourly permits can be purchased at the permit-dispensing machine in lot P303 (E-6 area on map). Parking rate is $1 per hour. There are 15-minute meters in a small lot near the entrance to the Rec Gym (P201); only use this if you will be dropping off since you cannot re-load these meters.
You may find free parking along streets to the west of campus, but crossing Torrey Pines Road on foot isn’t easy.
We will be out of the gym by the end of practice and will escort all players to the drop-off/pick-up parking lot (P201). Coaches will not leave your daughter(s) at UCSD, so please be on time for drop-off and pick-up.
Additional practice locations may be added as well.
As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
