Syracuse Lacrosse' $17 million, 102,250 Square-Foot Indoor Practice Facility is in Design Phase

The momentum continues to build for the Syracuse Athletics program as the University and Athletics Department are in the design phase for the Indoor Practice Center. The progress in this project comes on the heels of Syracuse’s most successful athletics season in school history, the move to the Atlantic Coast Conference on July 1 and the announcement of the generous ‘I’m in’ campaign gift from Jean and Dick Thompson. The design phase includes renderings of the facility and public discussion.

The design phase of the project is an exciting one for Syracuse athletics. The indoor facility is coming closer to fruition daily as the hard work and dedication of all involved will result in a beautiful facility for our coaches and student-athletes, which will create a unifying effect for all associated with Syracuse,” said Director of Athletics Dr. Daryl Gross. “From four teams reaching the Final Four in their sports, to a steady rise in the NACDA Directors’ and Capital One Cups and our historic move to the ACC, it marks a time of unprecedented success and growth. Now, to experience the generosity last week from the Thompson family and this week see the transformational indoor facility moving we can all feel this incredible sense of momentum at precisely the right time.”

The project, which was announced in February, will be introduced to the public in an open meeting hosted by Syracuse University on July 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Goldstein Student Center (located on South Campus), Room 201. Free parking is available for the meeting.

All Syracuse fans are invited to join ‘Orangenation Rising,’ a state of mind where passion, tradition and die-hard loyalty intersect, by renewing their season tickets or purchasing new 2013 season tickets. Fans can use the internet (, telephone (888-DOME-TIX), or visit the Carrier Dome Box Office (Gate B). Season tickets start at just $99 each. Individual game tickets go on sale on August 1.
