All the fun you can stand in one awesome cage!

Field House

With the highest collegiate indoor track in the nation, we make champions out of thin air.  Our NCAA indoor track is home to Western’s national champion track and cross-country teams.   Boasting three multipurpose courts for basketball, volleyball, pickle-ball, and more, and a throwing cage and jump pit for field events, our advanced netting system makes this one of the most versatile spaces on campus.  65,201 sq. ft.

Foam Pit

Our students spoke and we listened when we installed a trampoline and foam pit in our new field house.  Mountain Sports Team athletes can up their game as they practice aerials, body position, and all the skills they will need to perform at their best for winter and summer competitions. And when it comes right down to it, who doesn’t like jumping on a trampoline and launching into a foam pit?
