Athletic offerings at Detroit Country Day’s Upper School campus now include a new indoor practice facility, gymnasium and fitness center for this private school’s students and alumni. Community members and neighbors were involved in planning for this challenging site that includes rolling hills and residential neighbors. Inside the new expansive, 120,000 SF facility is a full sized synthetic football field. The field itself is also striped for lacrosse, soccer and field hockey practices. Team locker rooms, storage spaces and public restrooms are located along a central corridor. The 14,000 SF gymnasium, along with related storage areas, concessions, a 2-story mezzanine and new locker rooms, are primarily for the middle school students’ use. The fitness center, however, is intended for use by the entire upper school campus, as well as DCD alumni. With weights and cardio equipment, the center includes a sprung wood floor, and is used for cheerleading practice, yoga classes and other events.
