Our Athletic Building was completely gutted with an extensive $3.25 million renovation in October 2013. The locker rooms were refurbished with new steam showers, saunas, jacuzzis, lounge areas and updated decor. A new multi-purpose exercise room was added, as well as a new family changing area and a new childcare room. The fatball and racquetball/smallball courts were consolidated and refurbished.
