About the project
King's Eagles Athletics program has grown in popularity over the years and our home games now boast of some of the largest fan numbers in the league. Additionally, we have seen increases in high school and club teams, along with parents, in attendance. Comfortably hosting our guests is important. We want to offer them the best experience possible.
New spectator seating is the next step in King’s 5-Year Athletics Centre Update plan. The project builds on recent capital investments in team rooms and a new soccer field house. Future enhancements include a bold new colour scheme, motorized drop-down curtain, new digital displays, millwork, upgraded gym floor, and equipment replacements.
The improvements we make to these facilities will enhance our sports programs and also provide a better space for university banquets, summer camps, graduations, academic conferences, etc.
Next Step: Spectator Seating
- Sheridan seating system with 150 comfortable bucket-style seats and additional overflow bench seating for larger crowds.
- Fully branded colour palette, chosen with future renovations in mind.
- Electric motor operation for easy set-up/take-down and quick transitions between functions.
- Sturdy build quality with attractive finishings.
Let's give our athletics centre an update.
Eagles Athletics at King's
The King’s University’s Eagles Athletics program has evolved since entering the Alberta College Athletics Conference (ACAC) in the 1990’s.
Starting with basketball in 1996 and volleyball in 1997, we have expanded into new sports, increased the number and volume of scholarships available to students, and brought on board new academic programming that encompasses studies in kinesiology, providing students with opportunities to pursue a passion for sports, movement, and activity in their studies.
We have celebrated many accomplishments over the years—including Men’s Basketball earning a bronze medal in their inaugural year in the league. Players and coaches are continually recognized for their achievements by the ACAC and Canadian College Athletics Association (CCAA). In the past 27 years, King’s teams have won 16 ACAC and 3 CCAA medals.
Today, Eagles Athletics houses competitive men’s and women’s teams in volleyball, basketball, badminton, cross-country/track, and soccer/futsal. The growth of the program has been integral to boosting awareness of the university and supporting student enrolment growth.
