“Premier Division 1 Athletics Training and Human Performance Facility”

With an overall indoor footprint of 164,000 square feet, the Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex (SJAC) has emerged as one of the premier training and human performance facilities in Division 1 athletics. The SJAC boasts an eight-lane, 300-meter track with dedicated areas for field events and seating for 1,000 spectators. A 100-yard synthetic field with a clear height of 61-feet 8-inches at midfield allows for field sports to train year-round. The project also includes a new weight room, hydrotherapy room, and athletic training space.

The SJAC absolutely brought me here. To train and compete in a premier facility excites me in my quest to get better as an athlete.
