Watkins Field House

Watkins Field House—a 30,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, $12 million athletic center—was built in 2016 and echoes the design of our historic Main Building and other nearby buildings. 

The gymnasium space includes one college regulation court that runs the length of the building. Two more courts—both high school regulation—run perpendicular to that court. Multiple courts allow for more court time for both teams and individual students, enabling us to provide more practice time for our indoor sports. 
This fitness center is more than 3,000 square feet and efficiently meets the needs of our large and diverse community. The Watkins Field House has space for weight and strength training, as well as group exercise.

The facility includes locker rooms for faculty, officials, visiting teams, and boys’ and girls’ home teams.
