Go Griz! Washington-Grizzly Champions Center Ready for Student-Athletes

The privately funded Washington- Grizzly Champions Center opened in time for the fall football season. The 51,000-square-foot facility features:
  • 19,400-square-foot, two-level, all-sport weight room with a nutrition/refueling station
  • 7,100-square-foot football locker room with 112 lockers
  • Locker room for coaches and professional athletes
  • 2,000-square-foot football team room
  • 5 meeting rooms for all student-athletes
  • Additional restrooms and concession stands along the southwest concourse

This $14 million project couldn’t have happened without the hundreds of donors who made contributions, including the lead donors, Kevin and Kyle Washington on behalf of the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation.

A special thank you to our major donors for their support in the development of the center.
