The camps will be held in the Costello Athletic Center at UMass Lowell.
Built in 1964, the CAC underwent many renovations over the summer of 2006, including the installation of a new hardwood playing surface; new collapsible bleachers in several areas, including the east end of the court; and new banners at either end of the court celebrating the University’s many championships.
Additionally, a new sound system was installed with speakers to be added above the balcony level as well as attractive acoustic panels on the ceiling to improve sound.
Among the minor changes has been a new curtain separating the main floor and the auxiliary gymnasium, as well as new blinds on the windows above the balcony level. Along with the main and auxiliary basketball courts, this three-floor facility also contains a swimming pool, training facilities and the main offices for the athletic department staff.
The weight room, located in the basement, contains the latest equipment and a wide variety of free weights suitable for training and is exclusive to UML student-athletes.
The Campus Recreation Center is a sparkling 65,000-square-foot two-story building of brick, glass and steel on Aiken Street across from LeLacheur Baseball Park on the University’s East Campus. It houses:
- A 6,500-foot fitness area
