McWhorter Center for Women's Athletics
|Address||703 W. Samford Drive|
The McWhorter Center for Women's Athletics officially opened its doors in January of 2001. The 44,000 square foot building is home to the Auburn University Gymnastics team and the Softball team.
Locker Room: The carpeted locker room area has wooden lockers for each student-athlete, individually stalled showers, restrooms, as well as a state-of-the-art stereo system. The door of the locker room is coded to give the gymnasts access to the locker room at all times.
Team Room: The lounge contains a big screen TV and DVD player, a Nintendo Wii, and computers for homework, research, and email. Chairs, tables, and leather couches provide a great atmosphere for team meetings or just for hanging out.
Athletic Training Room: The training room consists of taping tables, a whirlpool, ice machine, and various rehabilitation equipment. Student Athletes use the training room before and after practices and meets. The gymnastics team has a full time certified athletic trainer to supervise all activities.
Coaches Offices: Each gymnastics coach has their own office in the McWhorter Center. The offices are located on the second floor of the building and have windows that overlook.
Gymnastics Practice Facility: The 14,770 square foot training area was designed for the overall safety of the student-athletes. The gym's nine resi-pits and four loose foam pits make it easy to avoid hard landings during everyday training.
The McWhorter Center for Women's Athletics provides some of the best resources to Auburn student athletes and we feel that it is one of the finest facilities in the country. It inspires a source of honor and pride to wear the orange and blue and be an Auburn Tiger!
