(Windsor, Ontario) – Students, staff and the community gathered today to witness the ground breaking ceremony for the new St. Clair College Sports Park. This exciting project will provide students and the community with state-of-the-art facilities for soccer, softball, beach volleyball courts, and indoor tennis courts.
The multi-year project will see the complete rejuvenation of the College’s current outdoor sports facilities at the south end of the campus.
The Sports Park will boast 1,500 seat soccer field complete with artificial turf, digital score board and press box, a 400 seat softball diamond with artificial field, team rooms and scoreboard, concession stands, and four lighted beach volleyball courts with a lounge. Indoor tennis courts will be developed in the later part of the project.
The project will be overseen by the Student Representative Council (SRC) and the Student Athletic Association. Support from the community has been unparalleled thanks to the generous sponsorship from the Barry and Stephanie Zekelman Foundation, and Michael Schlater, CEO of Dominos Canada. In addition the College also is grateful to the WFCU Credit Union, Fortis Group, Architecturra Inc., the City of Windsor and Town of Tecumseh for their continued support.
