It's not just a Rec's about community.

Ignite the Gael Spirit

A Saint Mary’s education doesn’t end in the classroom. The new Recreation Center is a critical component in providing students with a whole-person education, educating the mind, body and spirit. As you can see from the video, it is going up quickly. The structural steel framing is complete and the exterior walls are underway, and the Center will be completed in the spring of 2015.

The budget for the Alioto Recreation Center is $23.5 million. The lead gift came from the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation, and we have raised nearly $20 million so far with $3.5 million still to go. To leave an enduring legacy while supporting student health, wellness and intramural activities at Saint Mary’s, consider purchasing a personalized stone paver that will go in the Recreation Center Plaza.

State-of-the-art 58,000-square-foot fitness center features:

  • Three full-size courts for recreational and indoor intramural sports, including basketball, soccer and volleyball
  • Two multi-purpose rooms for group fitness activities and classes, such as yoga, dance and spinning
  • Climbing wall
  • Whirlpool spa
  • Large patio and lawn areas with space for relaxation, socializing, study and outdoor events
  • Juice and snack bar
  • Offices for sports and recreation staff, as well as intramural and club sports
  • An aquatics center with a recreational pool to accommodate lap swimming, swim lessons and swim clubs, as well as a variety of water sports
