Birthday Parties

The Student Recreation Center has several spaces available for your child’s birthday party. Every birthday party requires a two-hour minimum block, signed waivers, and chaperones. All birthday parties are limited to 50 people, which includes both adults and children. Birthday parties are only available on weekends. Read about our different party selections and how to secure your spot today! Every event held through the Student Recreation Center must be requested using our Reservation Application. The link is shown under each type of birthday party. Please fill out the form and email it to src@southalabama.edu.

We thank you for choosing to celebrate with us!

▼   Outdoor Pool Party

Celebrate your birthday party or special event with us at the outdoor pool. The pool deck has swings, tables with chairs, and lounge chairs. There is a shallow water area for sunbathing or for small children to enjoy, volleyball nets, basketball goals, and water polo goals in the pool. Your guests can also enjoy other features such as the vortex and hot tub for anyone over 13 years of age. 

The outdoor pool is available for special events April 1st-October 31st (weather permitting.) You must be a member of the Student Recreation Center to reserve the outdoor pool. Pool parties cannot be combined with Rock Wall or other parties; you must register for those areas separately. Two parties can be booked per event date unless one of the parties has booked 76-100 guests, which would make it a private event.

Cost: $200 per party

▼   Rock Wall Party

Celebrate your birthday party or special event with us at the rock wall. The wall has a cushy floor, five auto belays, and plenty of routes. We have child-size climbing shoes and harnesses. There is a bouldering cave for older children and staff ready to belay weaker climbers. Everyone will have their chance to make it to the top. Every wall has an easy route with jugs (big, grippy holds) and extra footholds (for short climbers, like kids.) Rock wall birthday parties include the back deck, as food and drink are not permitted at the rock wall. A maximum of 20 people can be in the rock wall at a time. If you bring a larger number, they will need to rotate in/out from the back deck.

The rock wall is available year-round. You must be a member of the Student Recreation Center to reserve the rock wall. Rock wall parties cannot be combined with pool parties or other parties; you must register for those areas separately. Two parties can be booked per event date if the other slot is available.

Cost: $200 per party

▼   Sports Party

Celebrate your birthday party with a day full of sports. Sports themed birthday parties are held on the intramural fields, just left of the new football stadium. You can have your choice of flag football, soccer, ultimate frisbee, kickball, and more! Tents and a table will be provided to serve cake or keep coolers shaded. The intramural field house also has restrooms that are included with your rental. In the event of bad weather, sports parties can be moved to the indoor soccer court at the Student Recreation Center. Requests for sports parties must be submitted no later than seven business day before the event.

The intramural fields are available April 1st – October 31st (weather permitting.) You must be a member of the Student Recreation Center to reserve the intramural fields. Sports parties cannot be combined with pool parties or rock wall parties; you must register for those areas separately.

Cost: $200 per party
