CENTER FOR HEALTH AND FITNESS
Boylan Catholic High School's Center for Health and Fitness will be built in two phases so that current use of the Auxiliary Gym by Physical Education classes and boys' and girls' team practices will not be interrupted. Currently, 65% of Boylan Catholic's students are involved in one of 23 girls' and boys' sports.
The Center for Health and Fitness will benefit every student-athlete and non-athlete alike-who seeks to enhance personal fitness.
Phase One: New Construction
An addition will be built west of the Cafeteria and will be attached to the south wall of the existing Auxiliary Gym by a new corridor. This addition, which will double the amount of practice space, will house:
The courts will have the appropriate ceiling clearance and surrounding space required for competition. Baseball nets will allow for practice hitting while other activities take place. The courts will have wood floors.
These locker rooms are situated between the existing Auxiliary Gym and the new practice courts for ease of access to outdoor and indoor sports and PE activities.
Deliveries will be made to the south side instead of the west side of the Cafeteria. The parking lot will be reconfigured to allow for delivery.
Phase Two: Repurposing/Renovation
The Auxiliary Gym, built in 1971, will be repurposed. The existing Boys' Locker Room and Weight Room will be renovated.
Rehabilitation, training and physical therapy needs will be met in a space three times the current size. Staff will have access to ice machines, taping areas, massage tables, whirlpools and associated equipment.
Boys' Locker Room, Weight Room:
A Donor Wall will be framed by the existing main gym doors and the concession hallway near the student entrance. There, Boylan Catholic's students, staff, alumni, and friends will be reminded of those benefactors whose dedication built the Center for Health and Fitness.
