Currently under construction, the new James R. Wilkins Jr. Athletics and Events Center at Shenandoah University (SU) will serve both the community and the university — and help bring the school into the top tier of indoor athletic facilities in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
With a stage and seating capacity of 5,000, the finished complex will include practice and competition space for SU’s 21 athletic teams. The complex meets NCAA requirements for indoor track, basketball and volleyball.
The facility incorporates a satellite athletic training area, inclement weather practice space, and a curtain system that allows multiple sports teams to practice simultaneously. Also included is a 63,000 SF multipurpose field house with retractable seating for 1,600.
Located in a highly visible location just off Interstate 81, the center is expected to enhance recruiting for SU’s NCAA Division III teams. It is slated to be complete by the end of December.
