Chase Center Announces Availability of Wellness and Sensory Room

Tuesday December 24, 2019

The Golden State Warriors and Chase Center, the Warriors new 18,064-seat privately financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, announced today that its new Wellness and Sensory Room is now open and available for use, which is the first of its kind in the San Francisco area. The room was developed as part of the arena’s partnership with leading sensory inclusion training non-profit, KultureCity, and highlights Chase Center’s commitment to acceptance and inclusion for all individuals. Beginning immediately, the room will be available for all Warriors home games, Chase Center concerts and special events.

Elements of the Wellness and Sensory Room include:

Bubble tubes to stimulate the visual and auditory senses
Tactile wall panels that have various activities that stimulate the visual and tactile senses
Bean bags to provide proprioceptive and vestibular regulation
Room color recommendations to promote overall calming visual environment
In addition to having a dedicated Wellness and Sensory Room, Chase Center provides sensory bags equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads to help with guests experiencing a sensory overload situation. The sensory bags are located at the guest experience kiosks located on the main concourse by Portal 13 and the upper concourse by Portal 52.

To recognize and help with a guest experiencing sensory needs, all full-time Chase Center staff and a majority of part-time staff were trained by KultureCity on how to create the best experience to handle a sensory overload situation. As a result of the training, Chase Center became a Certified Sensory Inclusive venue.

KultureCity is a leading non-profit recognized nationwide for using their resources to revolutionize and effect change in the community for those with sensory needs; not just those with Autism. Since the program’s inception, KultureCity has created over 450 sensory inclusive venues in four countries.
