DAHLBERG ARENA RECORDS

First opened in 1953 as the Harry Adams Field House and named after famed atheletic director, head track and field coach, and assistant football coach, the field house had a two-year renovation in 1999, opening as the Adams Events Center. Along with being the home of The University of Montana Athletic Department, the Adams Center also hosts concerts with such famous acts as Elton John, Sting, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Pearl Jam, and Wilco; the University and local high school graduations; trade shows, among other activities. Dahlberg Arena, the home of the Griz and Lady Griz, has a capacity of 7,321. Along with an expansion of facilities, concessions and rest rooms, theather style seating was added. Two new practice gyms (WAG and EAG) were added to the venue along with a 7,000 square foot weight room, 4,500 square foot athletic treatment center, academic center and meeting rooms. The women’s locker room was expanded along with the equipment room. In 2004 a wide screen Griz Vision TV was added on the north end of the arena and a central scoreboard was added above the floor. The University of Montana also replaced its portable sports floor with a new permanent state of the art maple sports floor. The new floor is 15,000 square feet. The floor is called the FOCUS and is manufactured by Connor Sports Floors and was installed by Northern Hardwood of Deer Park, Wash. The floor is a fixed

resilient sectional channel system with a plywood panel subfloor and a continuous recessed lineal padding, featuring Nike grind material. The floor is 2001 DIN compliant, which means it meets or exceeds all athletic performance qualities as measured by DIN. DIN testing measures the floors performance in some specific categories: • Ball rebound: Measures the basketball’s response off the sports floor system as compared to the ball’s response of concrete (Fast play and quick response). • Shock Absorption: Measures the flooring system’s ability to absorb impact forces normally absorbed by the athlete when landing on a hard surface (User friendly and comfortable).

Intercollegiate Athletics New Academic Center

With support from the university administration and private donors, the athletic facility improvement plan includes the following: • Construct an academic center, meeting rooms and additional offices in the open space between the current athletic complex and the student recreation center. (See artist rendition on left.) Lower level will remain a lobby to accommodate fire code restrictions and the Adams Center. • Relocate the current weight room to a site to be finalized. The new strength and conditioning center would feature approximately 10,000 square feet of training space to serve all student-athletes.
