CURRENT Projects Upgraded facilities and other capital projects provide our coaches and student-athletes with the necessary resources to compete at the highest level on a national stage. Donors can contribute to the Seton Hall Athletics Capital Campaign with a lead gift for a new project or through a naming opportunity for a current facility. In the fall of 2012, we embarked on what will be nearly 20 million dollars in new athletic facility projects.
Fitness Center Part of a comprehensive modernization of the The Richard and Sheila Regan Field House, the new fitness center will provide first-rate exercise opportunities. The two-tiered facility will offer expanded fitness and programming options while featuring an augmented space dedicated specifically for SHU students, faculty, staff and recreation center members. Both the first and second floor will be lined with brand new cardio equipment – treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes – each equipped with individual viewing screens. The cardio stations will be oriented to allow the SHU community to take full advantage of the building’s revamped exterior, looking out onto Seton Hall’s historic South Orange campus. The first floor will also include a variety of circuit weight training options and a new reception and office area designed to enhance member relations. In addition to the second cardio station, the top floor will contain a space designed for free weight training and a pair of dance and fitness studio multi-purpose rooms, each slated to be in excess of 1,100 square feet.
Athletic training room Scheduled for completion in May 2013, the new training room will serve as a cutting-edge, on-site medical facility exclusively for intercollegiate student-athletes. An expansion of the old training center will add state-of-theart equipment, including three 14-foot, in-ground Hydro Worx tubs – including an underwater treadmill – that will supplement and greatly enhance rehabilitation efforts. New treatment areas, tables and taping stations will also be installed in a room that will prominently feature Seton Hall athletic branding. In an effort to make first-class care as accessible as possible, offices for the Pirates’ physicians are also in development.
