Support SAPC

Directly support the most pressing priority that Saint Mary’s Athletics faces: completion of the SAPC and expansion of McKeon Pavilion. This $13.6 million project features dedicated facilities for varsity athletes, including a weight room, training room and, a new women’s volleyball locker room. And visiting teams will have to face even more boisterous fan support for the Gaels as the mad house in Moraga adds approximately 250 seats.

Help us reach our goal.

Campaign Progress

Multiple naming opportunities are available.

SAPC at a glance

McKeon Pavilion opened its doors in 1978 and since then the minor cosmetic improvements to the facility have not kept up with the incredible success achieved by the Gael Athletic Programs. Saint Mary’s now sponsors 17 NCAA Division I teams, as well as our National Championship Rugby program. McKeon is regularly filled to capacity at 90 percent of its home basketball games and over half of Saint Mary’s undergraduate students are members of the Gael Force, the student spirit club of Gael Athletics. The new SAPC will include new weight and training facilities that rival our WCC peers, allowing us to recruit from across the country and around the world.

Planned Space & Site Plan

Putting our best foot forward

Saint Mary’s is already well known for the quality of its coaching and both the academic and athletic performance of its student-athletes. New facilities will complete the picture, helping us attract and retain the best student-athletes, many of whom are being courted by Division I competitors with much more sophisticated training and performance resources.

Putting player health first

Other than a tough competition on game day, there’s no better way to build camaraderie and enhance performance than training together as a whole team. When athletes train together, they compete with and encourage one another. That’s why a new weight room—as well as a new training room to help players prevent and rehabilitate injuries—is our coaches’ top priority.

Turning up the volume on the competition

McKeon Pavilion is renowned for the intensity of the fan experience—the closeness to the action, the noise of the Gael Force. And the intimacy that makes McKeon so exciting for fans makes it the toughest place our opponents play. Expanded seating and lobby renovations will allow even more people to come to games and ensure they’ll have an experience they will remember.
