Athletics/Alumni Center

Cougar student-athletes practice, compete, work out, rehabilitate, study, meet and relax in the finest collegiate athletics training facility in the country. The opening of the UH Athletics/Alumni Center

in May 1995 ushered in a new era for the University of Houston athletics program, and the results from the Cougars' new den have been easy to see. Since joining Conference USA in 1996, the Cougars have accumulated 37 conference titles.

Funds to build the $29.1 million, 220,000-square foot facility were donated by alumni John and Rebecca Moores, who believed that Cougar student-athletes deserved a top-notch facility. Thanks to the Moores', everything in the facility is top-notch from the impressive Hall of Fame at the entrance of the building, to the 120-yard AstroTurf indoor practice field, which covers an indoor track, a hardwood basketball/volleyball court and two SportCourts, to the locker rooms for nine Cougar athletics teams, to the 16,500-square foot weight room, to the state-of-the-art athletic training room, to the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) to the meeting rooms and athletics department offices.

Here's a brief overview of a few of the facilities outstanding features.

Academic Center for Excellence ACE is the finest academic support facility in the country. In addition to classrooms, group study rooms and private study rooms, the area houses a 24-station computer lab, a career resource center and library, and offices for the UH Student-Athlete Services Support Staff.

Sports Medicine Center The state-of-the-art area comes complete with 12 treatment and 12 taping tables, offices for the professional training staff and team physician, examination rooms, rehabilitation equipment and a hydrotherapy center which contains a sauna, whirlpools, a spa and a Swimex pool for rehabilitation.

Strength & Conditioning Center The Elmer Redd Strength & Conditioning Center contains free and machine weights designed to accommodate both the largest and smallest student-athletes. This area also houses stair machines, treadmills and exercise bikes.

Auditorium A 200-seat multi-purpose room with video capability will be used as a team meeting room, academic meeting area and for special events.

Batting Cages When the weather is bad, two 70-foot batting cages can be dropped from the ceiling for indoor hitting practice by the baseball and softball teams.

Volleyball and Basketball Courts One permanent wood floor sits at one end of the indoor practice area for use as the primary practice court for the Cougar volleyball team. Two additional adjacent multipurpose surface areas can be used as a practice court for varsity volleyball and basketball practice if needed.

Indoor Track and Tennis Courts The six-lane, NCAA competition track is made of Mondo, widely regarded as the fastest surface in the world. It features sprint lanes on both sides, jump runways on both sides and two high jump areas, one on each side.

Indoor Practice Field The air-conditioned, 120-yard AstroTurf practice field retracts to reveal an indoor track, plus one hardwood and two multi-purpose surface practice courts.

Video Production Laboratory The video area includes editing rooms with decks to dub tapes of practices and games, production rooms for highlight videos, extensive video storage units and a set for live interviews.

Cougar Hall of Fame Memorabilia of Houston's athletics highlights, including its most famous former athletes and best teams, is attractively displayed near the entrance of the facility. The Hall of Fame features a Hall of Honor wall.
