Thomas College Sukeforth Family Sports Center
The Sukeforth Family Sports Center is the new home of Thomas College Athletics and plays an important role in recruiting and retaining athletes, students and coaches.
The 16,590-square-foot sports center is the keystone element of the first phase of a proposed larger facility, which would feature an attached gymnasium and field house.
The upper-level spaces include a reception and viewing area, athletic department offices, a meeting/film room, public restrooms, and a strength and conditioning center. Lower-level spaces include locker rooms for home and visiting teams, officials rooms, trainer’s room/facilities, laundry, and uniform/equipment storage.
In addition to serving the traditional student-athlete population, the sports center also houses Thomas’ Varsity eSports Arena. This venue provides a competitive edge in this exciting, emerging gaming genre and provides a huge “wow” factor for prospective students in the college’s recruitment efforts.
The new Athletic Center aims to be one of the highlights of campus tours.
