Physical Education Center (PEC)


The Charles R. Eilber Physical Education Center (PEC) houses a gymnasium, racquetball courts, dance studio, fitness center, wrestling area, training room, and a classroom. Areas of the Center can be reserved in advance by using Room Reservations in Focus. General operating hours are posted on the doors, and special events and closings are publicized through the NCSSM Web site. Members of the School community holding a current NCSSM identification card are eligible to use the facility and to check out athletic and recreational equipment. Visitors and guests of students or staff are not allowed to use the activity areas of the PEC. Exceptions are made for special events, alumni, and immediate family members of currently enrolled students and staff. The NCSSM student host must accompany the guest at all times in the PEC. The activity areas are the fitness center, dance studio, racquetball courts, training room, wrestling area, and main gymnasium.

The facility is supervised by adult staff during all hours of operation, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. 

Although an adult supervises the PEC during all operating hours, facility users must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury due to the strenuous nature of exercise and sports participation. It is strongly recommended that all facility users have a current physical examination, discuss their exercise plan with their physician, obtain instruction in the activity and carry medical insurance in the event an accidental injury occurs. Any injured person should notify the staff supervisor on duty without delay. NCSSM will not assume any financial responsibility for injuries occurring in the PEC or on the surrounding playing fields.

Available Facilities:

Fitness Center--Aerobic machines: Elliptical, Treadmill and Stationary Bike, includes free weights, a Universal machine and various exercise balls

*Access to the fitness center during non traditional hours is via staff FOB to get into the building and security code for the room available from the PA staff. Note that for liability purposes students are not permitted in the PEC without supervision by a PA staff member. All other parts of the PEC are locked when the building is closed and not available to staff.
