Track & Field

The Fowler Family Baseball and Track Training Center provides an expansive check in and warm up area for track meets and will allow all indoor meet throwing events to be held on site.

The weight throw and discus practice/competition area is separate from the baseball training area allowing for dual training in the facility. For track competition, this facility will allow for all throwing events to be held at the Fowler Family Baseball and Track Training Center instead of the Walker Pavilion.

The facility also includes four (4) 60 meter sprint lanes for track meet warm-up prior to events.

With addition of this venue adjacent to Tyson Indoor Track Facility, track events will conduct clerking/warm-up here and make existing warm-up space in Tyson Indoor being converted to a shared strength and conditioning space and satellite training room.

Baseball

The practice infield is suitable for live hitting with nets ensuring safe activity/observation outside the infield space and protective measures toward the facility structure.

The facility includes four (4) Batting cages with a drop down and raise up netting system that allows for baseball training and available surface space during track events.
