SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Groundbreaking for the state-of-the-art Stephen C. and Patricia A. Schott Athletic Excellence Center is set for Monday.
Made possible by lead funding of $15 million from Stephen C. '60 and Patricia A. Schott, and $10 million from Mary '84 and Mark Stevens, the Athletic Excellence Center (AEC) will provide dedicated space for Broncos student-athletes to train, practice, eat and study together while also opening up Davey Court for campus events and for all students participating in club and intramural sports.
The 50,000-square-foot facility, which was announced in November and approved by the school's Board of Trustees in February, features the 4,200-square-foot Stevens Academic Center, the 9,000-square-foot Bronco Bench Foundation Sports Performance Center, an 8,000-square-foot sports medicine center, a nutrition station and two practice gymnasiums - Dick Davey Court and Carroll Williams Court.
The two-story building will be located adjacent to Leavey Center and Degheri Tennis Center.
With a targeted completion of the summer of 2020, the AEC triples the amount of space student-athletes currently have for practice, academics, training, nutrition and medical care.
The groundbreaking ceremony, which is open to the public, will begin at 11 a.m. in Degheri Tennis Center.
The Leavey Center lot, located on Accolti Way off El Camino Real, will be available. Any other parking facility on campus will be subject to normal daily rates or restrictions, including the main structure, located on Palm Drive. Click here for a campus map and parking restrictions.
