Sports and Recreation Center
The 45,000-square-foot Sports and Recreation Center is a multi-purpose facility that houses a 200-meter, six-lane track, two batting cages, six tennis courts and four basketball floors.
The balcony/walkway that stretches around half of the facility, allows for over 600 spectators to watch tennis and track competitions. Baseball and softball use the facility for preseason workouts, while football and soccer use the facility during dangerous weather conditions in the fall. The SRC has plenty of space to run full workouts for all of the above-mentioned teams. Thanks to the multi-purpose netting system, the facility can also be set up to allow two or more teams to practice at the same time.
The softball facility features an irrigated ballpark with a scenic background of the Oneota Valley. A new stadium with a press box was built the summer of 2016 equipped with internet access that will allow the sports information office to video stream home games. Wind screen covers the outfield fence with dimensions of 190 feet down the lines and 225 feet to straight-away center field. Two-walk out dugouts, two separate bullpens, and two batting cages complete the softball complex.
During the preseason and times of inclement weather, the Norse practice indoors in the Regents Center and the 45,000 square foot sports and recreation center equipped with two batting cages.
