The most extensive capital project since Colby College moved to Mayflower Hill will be the construction of a new, state-of-the-art athletics complex. The 340,000-foot facility will include an indoor track-and-field competition center, aquatic center, squash center, gymnasium, hockey arena, and fitness center and studios as well as training rooms and coaching suites.
Located across from Johnson Pond, the athletics complex will encourage and support competitive and recreational athletes on campus and is designed to provide access to the greater Waterville community and to become a broader regional center for sports training and competition.
In 2017 the College will open three new relocated competition and recreational fields, including a practice field, a competition soccer field, and the Bill Alfond Field, which will continue to be used for competition field hockey and lacrosse. Like the recently completed baseball and softball complex and the athletic complex itself, these fields will be available for use by the broader community.
