Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus Construction Update
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The University of Michigan and Granger Construction Company have begun construction on the South Competition and Performance Project.
The most recent initiative within the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus, as previously approved by the regents, will be the future home of men’s and women’s track and field, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s lacrosse, women’s rowing and men’s and women’s soccer.
Men’s and women’s lacrosse will have a new 2,000-seat stadium with a turf field. The stadium lobby will house the lacrosse hall of fame and each program will have their own locker room, lounge and film rooms along with offices for the coaching staff within a new performance center.
Men’s and women’s track and field and cross country will have both an indoor and outdoor track. The outdoor stadium will have a capacity of 500, while the indoor track will have a capacity of 2,000 and feature a 200-meter hydraulic track up to international meet standards and a 300-meter training track. It will be the only facility in the country with both tracks. The teams will have their own locker room and lounge along with offices for the coaching staff.
The rowing team will have an indoor rowing tank to allow the team to practice during winter months. There will also be an erg room, locker room, team lounge and offices for the coaching staff.
Also a part of the facility will be a new sport performance center. A 20,000 square foot strength and conditioning facility with a plyometric hill and cardio space, this area will also have areas for sports medicine and a nutrition center. The men’s and women’s soccer coaching staff will also have offices in this area to be closer to their stadium and practice fields.
Throughout the construction process, U-M Athletics will provide updates, profiles and more on the progress of the facility here.
Information on the Richard L. Postma Family Golf Course Clubhouse is also available on this website as that facility project is also underway.
The Athletics South Competition and Performance Project is expected to be completed in the winter of 2018.
