Rosary Academy’s newest addition on campus is the strength and conditioning center, completed just a few weeks ago. In partnership with the Diocese, Rosary received a grant for $240,000 to help fund two vital campus renovation projects. The strength and conditioning center is the first of these projects to be completed, with a Learning and Enrichment Center due to be completed this fall.
Primarily used by the sports teams, the strength and conditioning center is available to the entire student body to use for supervised workouts and training. Athletic Director Tom Tice says he is impressed with the opportunities this affords his athletes.
“This new space perfectly fits the needs of our student body and athletic teams,” said Tice. “This is a first-class facility that matches many of the other amazing improvements that we have made on campus.”
The center includes free weights, stationary bikes, various workout apparatus found in membership gyms, and a private shower room.
With this facility available to all students, the school anticipates health benefits for everyone, but especially athletic teams.
“Having this center on campus will lead to increased strength and flexibility, which will lead to more efficient performances. More importantly, it will help prevent injury,” said Tice.
Assistant Head of School Dana Vasquez added: “Our community is blessed to have a space dedicated to the physical development and strength of our Forward Thinking Women. We are grateful to Bishop Vann for his unwavering faith in Rosary Academy.”
