SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – With the summer months approaching, construction on a number of Seton Hall Athletics projects is already heating up.
As previously noted, the Field House in the Richie Regan Recreation Center will be closed until further notice as renovations related to the new Fitness Center ramp up during the coming weeks.
The three-tier modeled facility has already begun to take shape as the existing exterior wall has been removed and extensive preliminary work related to the planned addition has been completed. When completed, the facility will include all-new men’s and women’s locker rooms, and a multi-level workout space featuring state-of-the-art equipment as well as an area devoted to dance and fitness classes.
As can be seen in the attached updated photo album; the process of removing the floor of the Field House is also underway, making way for the installation of the new composite surface. The basketball courts will be given a classic hardwood look and will again be encircled by a traditional track area.
Another initiative, a remodeling and extension of the Varsity Training Room, is nearing completion the area remains on schedule to be operational by mid-June. The plumbing for the three tubs in the brand-new hydro therapy area is steadily progressing and much of the necessary equipment for the facility and the associated offices has been delivered and/or installed. For more information on the full breadth of the renovations that have taken place in the training room and the coming upgrades to the fitness center, please CLICK HERE.
As a part of the Pride & Excellence Capital Campaign, you too, can play a role in the funding of such essential student-athlete facility projects and renovations. Projects scheduled to break ground in the near future include locker rooms for each sport, a dedicated space for the Seton Hall Athletics Hall of Fame, a new team video room and enhancements to Historic Walsh Gymnasium.
These projects are only a small part of a major athletic facilities overhaul currently in the works at the University, as Seton Hall remains dedicated to enhancing the student-athlete experience and positioning all 14 varsity programs to be leaders in the new BIG EAST Conference and on a national level.
