Student-Athlete Performance Center

The Shepherd University student-athletes currently train in a facility that was built to house teams with much different roster sizes than today. While this facility has served the Rams adequately, it can no longer effectively meet the needs of our 346 student-athletes. Therefore, it is essential we provide a modern and enhanced facility to train the next generation of Ram varsity athletes.

This facility will send a powerful message—to student-athletes, to prospective student-athletes and their families, to coaches, to the surrounding community, and to alumni—about the commitment of Shepherd University athletics to transforming the overall student-athlete experience.

The Student-Athlete Performance Center, much like the campus Wellness Center, will be a signature facility that demonstrates Shepherd University’s commitment to the health and wellness of our student-athletes. This facility will send a powerful message—to student-athletes, to prospective student-athletes and their families, to coaches, to the surrounding community, and to alumni—about the commitment of Shepherd University athletics to transforming the overall student-athlete experience. As an institution that is considered an elite school in the region, all of Shepherd’s facilities should match that reputation. Across the Mountain East Conference, Shepherd’s facilities are among the best—with the exception of where our student-athletes train. In order to remain an elite program, a transformational investment is required from our 1,500 proud alumni athletes and countless friends who believe in Shepherd University athletics.

With your support, Shepherd can continue to recruit, educate and train the best and brightest student-athletes. The reward comes in knowing you’ve supported the Rams in our mission of excellence and outstanding representation of Shepherd University to the nation.
