Wilmington College’s $10.2 million Center for Sport Sciences represents a unique blend of academic, athletic, recreational, medical and commercial elements rarely seen on the NCAA Division III level.
The 41,000 square-foot facility is not only home to WC’s nationally prominent athletic training program and other sport sciences, but also accommodates training for essentially all of the College’s 21 sports teams, in addition to giving students additional options for recreational activities. Furthermore, the Center hosts a one-stop shop for the area’s sports medicine needs as world class orthopaedic, physical therapy, chiropractic and hospital imaging services are all under one roof and available to the campus and greater communities.
Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, CMH Regional Health System, Chiropractic Care and Drayer Physical Therapy Institute each have satellite branches at the facility. In addition to providing medical services available to the community, these health entities will work closely with WC student-athletes that have sustained injuries and with athletic training students eager to gain hands-on, clinical experience without leaving the campus.
The 3,000-square-foot, athletic training facility features state- of-the-art classrooms and labs, and is located within easy access of WC’s contiguous sports venues. It offers such amenities as two in-ground hydrotherapy pools, electrical muscle stimulators, and cryo-compression and ultrasound units. The Center’s 17,400 square- foot sport training facility provides for an all-indoor area with an artificial turf surface. The complex’s west end opens to an outdoor, lighted training field with an artificial turf surface for multiple sports, recreational activities and intramurals.
The physical address for the Center for Sport Sciences is 720 Elm Street, Wilmington, OH 45177
