Physical Education Center (PEC)

  • The Physical Education Center opened in 1983 and features a 40,000 square-foot main arena, an indoor track, racquetball courts and swimming pool.
  • Chaparral Fitness is accessible by both students and the community. Memberships are available for the use of these facilities as well as the pool and arena.
  • Credit and non-credit physical education courses are offered in the center, along with wellness assessment programs.
  • The center is the home base to nine men's sports teams and eight women's sports teams.
  • A $24 million renovation was completed at the end of 2013. Approximately 83,000 square feet of the existing 130,000 square feet were addressed, including the transformation of the south entrance into a more visible main entrance that will include a lobby, concession area, entrance into the arena and open stairway to the second level. A new 14,000 square-foot Varsity Athletic addition on the south side of the center houses facilities for the student athletes, including men's and women's locker rooms, a strength lab and a training room. The existing fitness center is now on the center's second level and called Chaparal Fitness. .
