Future changes in the athletic center


Over the last four years, numerous changes have been made to the athletic complex at Le Moyne, including the new turf field, locker rooms for athletes and an athlete only gym. Over the weekend, the new turf field was unveiled, a project that had been years in the making. Now the athletic department is setting its’ sights on new changes to come in the future, with each project staying true to the One Le Moyne vision.

The first hopeful project on the list is the building of new tennis courts on campus. In the fall of 2009, the college decided to pave over the old tennis courts to create room for more parking for the campus community. Currently, the men’s and women’s teams play their outdoor matches at Skytop and indoor matches at their home base at Gold’s Gym in Dewitt.

The second project would be giving the athletic center a “facelift” stated athletic director, Matt Bassett.

“We are hoping to take things that were built in the ‘50s and ‘60s and make them more modern experience for people to feel when they enter the building,” he explained. Remodeling the current gym would allow larger events to occur, therefore drawing in more members of the community.

The third, and most ambitious project would be the consideration of building an outdoor track.

“This would help further the development of programs and campus wellness,” said Bassett. This track would become another venue for all members of campus to workout on, including athletes, students and professors.

“The track would be an entryway to an exciting campus,” he added. “The entire campus can come together and join in.”

In making these changes, Bassett and the athletic department are focusing on the ideals of  Le Moyne as a community.

“Whenever we make any changes we make sure they align with the One Le Moyne Vision,” Bassett noted. “We want to create programs and facilities that strategically align with this vision and add to a vibrant and social campus community”.

Although many of these changes are in the future, Le Moyne Athletics has been following a trend of new additions each year since 2009. These changes are necessary to an ever-growing Le Moyne community, making each member feel welcome.

As stated by Bassett, these additions will help to “draw all members into one place, and will attract students, staff and athletes. They will be available for everyone.”
