What is the rule regarding access to facilities for student-athletes versus the regular student-body?
The issue with student-athletes using institutional facilities during a rest period is an issue of access. If the regular student body has access to athletic facilities at any time, then student-athletes may use those same facilities during a rest period. Even if the regular student body has to pay to use those facilities, student-athletes DO NOT have to pay to use those same facilities during a rest period; they just have to be available to anyone. In addition, the facilities should not be reserved for a block of time for a varsity team to use.
