Texas A&M’s new Football Indoor Performance Center will be complete by fall camp
Texas A&M continues to renovate its athletics department to maintain its status as a premier facility among the SEC ranks. Ross Bjork answered on the Yell & Review that multiple facilities that are part of the Centennial Campaign will be completed over the next year.
Below is what Bjork told the audience when highlighting the progress of the indoor football center.
“The indoor performance center, that’ll be done by the 1st of August in time for training camp” he said. “The Slocum-Bright Football complex, this year we’re only renovating the second floor. We moved out nutrition, we moved out academics. The second floor is going to be all of our individual breakout rooms for positions–quarterback, offensive line, all the different position rooms. We’ll have an individual team meeting room for offense and another team meeting room for defense, and then we’ll have a walk-through room for offense and defense that’ll attach to all of those breakout rooms. That has to be done by the 1st of August. We report on August 1st and start practice on August 2nd.”
The new 160-yard Football Indoor Performance Center will be integral to the changing landscape of college recruiting and wellness. In the age of NIL and a very active transfer portal getting an athlete on campus is only a third of the battle, while the other two-thirds keep them on campus after year one. Outside of playing time and championships, modern facilities go a long way in helping keep players around or to bring in transfers looking to play in the SEC. Here are the highlights of the new performance center:
160-yard practice field
Elevated observation area
Dedicated space for sports medicine and strength & conditioning
Direct access to the Bright Football Complex and Coolidge Outdoor Practice Fields
Outdoor plaza facing Kyle Field
The school might be out, but plenty of business is happening at the University this summer. You can visit the official website for more information about the Centennial Campaign.
