Located on the corner of Gillett Street and Walnut Avenue, the $9.5 million Jerome T. Osborne Family Athletic & Wellness Center opened in August of 2004. This state-of-the-art facility houses the Lake Erie College Department of Athletics, Sports Medicine training room, student fitness center and weight room and is the home venue for Storm basketball, volleyball and wrestling.
The 49,300 square-foot complex was built to accommodate the growing Storm athletic department, which features 21 varsity teams.
Designed by WTW Architects and constructed by the Albert M. Higley Co., the Osborne Family Athletic & Wellness Center houses two full-size gymnasiums, with the main gym serving as home to the basketball, wrestling and volleyball teams with a seating capacity of 750. Indoor baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse training takes place in the center's multi-purpose gymnasium that has a tartan-surfaced floor, full-size batting cage and indoor pitching mounds.
Also included within the complex are a classroom/meeting room, 10 locker rooms of various sizes and offices for the athletic department staff.
