Athletics Excellence Center

Project Description

The Stephen C. and Patricia A. Schott Athletic Excellence Center will be built adjacent to the Leavey Center and the Degheri Tennis Center. The 50,000 square foot, two-story Athletic Excellence Center will provide dedicated space for SCU’s Division I student-athletes to work out, train, practice, eat, and study together. It will also provide additional facility options for events and for all students participating in club and intramural sports. It will feature two practice gymnasiums; a 9,000-square-foot Bronco Bench Foundation Sports Performance Center; a 4,200-square-foot Stevens Academic Center with study rooms and computer space; a nutrition station; and an 8,000-square-foot sports medicine center.
