SAN ANTONIO — Big things are coming to the University of Texas at San Antonio's athletics program.
The university recently broke ground on the Roadrunner Athletics Center of Excellence (RACE), a training facility that promises to elevate the school's athletics program.
The new $41.5 million facility will help the university draw world-class student-athletes to its Division I programs and will also provide recreational sports resources to San Antonio residents, according to a press release from the school.
The nearly 95,000 square-foot center will be located on 10.8 acres near the school's Main Campus. It will include practice fields, locker rooms, a sports medicine center, and strength and conditioning facilities.
The RACE center will also have a strong focus on academics with academic study spaces, a computer lab and meeting rooms.
AS UTSA is a community-engaged school, the center's facilities will be available for public use.
Construction is expected to be complete in the Summer of 2021.
