Sports & Wellness Complex

The College is dedicated to ensuring the citizens of our district a collegiate presentation of its buildings and grounds as well as providing outstanding athletic and intramural programs. One of the College’s major initiatives is to provide a wellness program for all students, staff, faculty, and the community. The sport and wellness complex will provide the first stages towards those programs.

Programs that will benefit from this facility will include physical education classes for both credit and non-credit, recruitment opportunities through camps for children and teens, public and private athletic events, and state of the art training facility. Phase I was completed in the spring of 2007. This included the construction of the restrooms and concession building, baseball field modifications, construction of a softball field north of the baseball field, and the construction of a commons area to include a service drive and pedestrian sidewalks.

Phase I of the complex has been completed, with the installation of site lighting along the commons drive and bollard lighting leading to the restrooms and concession building, which was completed in fall 08.

An NCAA-regulation-sized soccer field was constructed that will further enhance and diversify the offerings and opportunities available through the Sports and Wellness Complex. It has a score board and a wireless public address system.

Phase II of the complex include construction of locker/dressing room facilities, conference room, office space, and a multi-purpose room that will contain a storage area and batting cages. Additional outdoor improvements include additional parking at the south end of the west parking lot, basketball goals, field lighting, putting green, tennis courts, soccer field and a walking track, and additional entrance leading from the Shattuc Road to the West Parking Lot.

Phase III of the Complex was developed and includes an expanded fitness center. The 10,000 square foot fitness facility was recommended as Phase III of the College’s current Sports & Wellness Complex Project and is currently constructed in the area of the gymnasium. The completed project will consist of a new concession and restroom area, new softball field, renovated baseball field, spectator seating, press boxes, accessible parking, a lighted commons area, locker rooms and indoor hitting facility, lighting for baseball & softball fields, a soccer field, four tennis courts, and an outdoor walking track. The addition of the fitness facility to the Sports & Wellness Project plans will enhance the wellness component. This addition will also boost campaign efforts by opening additional doors for grant funding opportunities and widen donor base.

When complete, the Sports and Wellness Complex will make a positive and professional reflection showing that Kaskaskia College is an institution of higher learning that cares about quality facilities as it serves its students and the residents of our district.
