A premier Athletics and Wellness center.
Unveiled in 2014, Sacred Heart’s Athletics and Wellness Center is a state-of-the art, 60,000-square foot facility. We place an emphasis on athletics, health and wellness all throughout the school community and it provides our student-athletes with a premier facility for them to practice and compete in.
Pool Deck & Mezzanine
At 25 yards, with six lanes, Sacred Heart’s regulation-size pool makes 91st Street one of only three independent schools in Manhattan (and the only school in our league) with a pool on site.
We offer swimming and aquatics activities to all students and learning to swim is a requirement for every student at Sacred Heart. The pool is home to the competitive Cardinal swim team and accommodates seating for 200 Cardinal swim team fans.
The Sacred Heart gym is a regulation-sized court that seats up to 288 people, used for basketball, volleyball, and badminton. It can be configured as a full size HS basketball or volleyball court, or as two side by side courts with divider curtain. It is also equipped with a state of the art video camera system and software that captures footage of all athletic events and can be analyzed to enhance performance. The floor also features full size locker rooms, team meeting room and an athletic trainer room.
Dance Studio & Multipurpose Fitness Room
The dance studio features dual ballet bars, floor to ceiling mirrors, a wood sprung floor, and a sound system. There is also over 2,000-square feet of multipurpose space, which can easily be divided into two fitness rooms, used for a variety of activities such as yoga, group exercise and seminars.
Strength & Conditioning Studio
The strength and conditioning studio is equipped like a college facility. At 1,900-square feet, it comprises extensive cardio equipment, strength training machines, TRX, free weight equipment and 13 spin bikes.
Athletic Trainer Room
The Athletic Training Room, located in the gymnasium, is a space dedicated to the prevention, care, assessment, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. The space includes heating and icing modalities, a stim and ultrasound machine, evaluation and taping tables, and rehabilitation tools such as therabands, physioballs, and balance boards.
Offsite NYC facilities
With a prime school location adjacent to Central Park and also close to Randall’s Island and Van Cortlandt Park, we secure training spaces at these locations and many others as appropriate by team.
