Students majoring in the sport sciences have a range of facilities to further their learning experiences.
The McDonnell Center for Health, Physical Education and Athletics is D&E's main indoor athletic facility. The athletic training suite, a key learning facility for sport science students, houses two therapeutic whirlpools for rehabilitation, three electrical stimulation units to help student-athletes recover from injuries, and Game Ready, a therapy system that integrates cold and compression. The suite also includes various equipment necessary for student-athlete therapy rehabilitation.
Adjacent to The McDonnell Center, Hermason Center includes George A. Myles Pool and Robbins-Madden Fitness Center. Utilized by sport science students enrolled aquatics courses, the pool area was renovated in 2012. The fitness center offers a variety of cardiovascular equipment, CYBEX strength equipment, and a complete free weight area with Olympic benches and racks.
Students in the physical education program may also attend classes in Memorial Gymnasium/Martin Field House. An important practice space for D&E athletic programs, the facility contains space for classes, batting cages and Seybolt Indoor Golf Academy. Classes are also held on D&E’s Nuttall Field, Joni Smith Softball Field, Katherine S. Thomas Tennis Center, baseball field and cross country course.
In addition to on-campus facilities, sport science students gain experience in Randolph County Schools classrooms, Elkins-Randolph County YMCA and other nearby athletic facilities.
