New York Region sports dome among largest in Ontario
June 15, 2022
One of the largest sports domes in Ontario has opened in York Region, as a result of a partnership with York Catholic District School Board and the Woodbridge Sports Dome.
The 100,000-square-foot indoor all-season dome at Holy Cross Catholic Academy specializes in soccer, volleyball and basketball, and includes state-of-the-art LED lighting and a large skylight section to increase the indoor ambience, according to a YCDSB news release.
“Having a domed sports field will certainly benefit our Holy Cross students, as well as our community members and local athletic teams that will share this space,” said YCDSB chair Elizabeth Crowe. “The YCDSB has a long-standing history of working with municipalities and community organizations to develop facilities that enhance our students’ educational experiences while, at the same time, benefiting the community at large.”
School board director Domenic Scuglia said, “As a board, we are so excited for our students and staff to explore and use this first-rate facility. The potential opportunities that could be made available are endless. Go Hawks!”
The sports dome supports the high performer athlete program offered at Holy Cross Catholic Academy.
