UTSA to build basketball, volleyball training facility for AAC competition
UTSA is inviting vendors to attend a virtual pre-submittal conference at 9 a.m. December 21 for architectural and engineering services for a new Basketball and Volleyball Training Facility (BVTF) to support the teams’ entry into the American Athletic Conference in Division 1.
The BVTF will be located adjacent to the recently completed Roadrunner Athletic Center of Excellence (RACE) on the west part of campus, and will house the daily operations of the men’s and women’s basketball and the women’s volleyball programs.
Preliminary plans call for a 50,000-square-foot, two-story facility that provides all practice facility amenities associated with top-tier NCAA Division 1 basketball and volleyball programs. Each program will have its own practice court, team locker room with shower space, film review room, team lounge area, and program office spaces for coaching staff.
Other features will include a sky bridge connecting the BVTF and RACE and tilt wall construction.
Following UTSA’s Campus Master Plan, the facility project will include the extension of the West Paseo and utility infrastructure.
The construction cost limit for this project is $20.5 million. Construction is scheduled from December 2022 to February 2024.
