FERRIS ATHLETIC CENTER
Central to all fitness and athletic programs is the Ferris Athletic Center, which houses many of the facilities used by students and athletes. These include the George A. Kellner Squash Center, which is a fitting home base for the top men's and women's squash programs in the country. It features 10 international-size courts, two of which are constructed with three glass walls for easy spectator viewing, as well as pyramid-style, amphitheater seating that enables up to 500 spectators to watch matches on all 10 courts simultaneously.
The Ferris Center is also home to the Ray Oosting Gymnasium, with seating for 2,100. It boasts two volleyball courts and two basketball courts and was the site of the men's NCAA Division III basketball regional playoffs in 1995.
Swimmers at Trinity work out in our Natatorium, which features a 37-meter, eight-lane stretch pool with a movable bulkhead. The Natatorium also features a diving well equipped with both one-meter and three-meter boards.
Trinity's rowing program takes advantage of both Hartford's proximity to the magnificent Connecticut River and an indoor rowing facility housed in the Ferris Athletic Center. During the spring and autumn, rowers work out on the river. Sculls are stored in the newly-renovated Friends of Trinity Rowing Boathouse in East Hartford. In the off-season, rowers also stay in shape using our 16-seat rowing tanks and 40 stationary ergometers.
Trinity's popular 5,400 square-foot Anne G. and Richard J. Hazelton Fitness Center offers the full complement of fitness machines and state-of-the-art equipment, including selectorized weight machines, treadmills, ellipticals, stairmasters, lifecycles, ergometers, and free weights. The fitness center, available to all students and all members of the faculty and staff, is open 16 hours a day, seven days a week.
Other indoor facilities include a multipurpose field house with a 1/10th-mile track and indoor tennis courts, wrestling and exercise rooms, and an auxiliary gymnasium. Ferris Athletic Center is open to the campus community Monday thru Friday 7 a.m. to 9:45 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., and Sunday Noon to 9:45p.m. Pool hours may differ from standard building hours.
The Jessee/Miller Field, named after two legendary Trinity football coaches, features the College's brand new football field with a state-of-the-art field turf playing surface and all-weather, six-lane (eight-lane straightaway), 400-meter track, and has stadium seating for 6,500.
The College also has a wide range of outdoor facilities, including Robin L. Sheppard Field, a state-of-the-art artificial turf field hockey and lacrosse field with lights, along with two Class A soccer/lacrosse fields, softball and baseball diamonds, eight tennis courts, and four recently renovated intramural fields. Additionally, Trinity makes use of a number of other high-quality athletic facilities throughout the Greater Hartford area.
KOEPPEL COMMUNITY SPORTS CENTER
The Koeppel Community Sports Center is a multi-use athletic facility on the southern edge of campus that will serve as home-ice for Trinity Men's and Women's Ice Hockey teams, and will provide opportunities for faculty, students, and staff to collaborate with the community through academic and athletic mentoring programs. Its centerpiece is Albert Creighton Williams '64 Ice Rink.
