As SouthLake Christian has experienced tremendous growth in its population and offerings in athletics, the facilities have also grown to keep pace. Our campus includes a main gymnasium that seats 750 for volleyball and basketball games and wrestling matches.
In 2014, we opened a field house with locker rooms, a weight room, a training room, coaches offices, and a classroom to provide space for all our athletic teams in their strength training and conditioning. The field house also has space for concessions and restrooms at the field level.
Our state-of-the-art turf field was ready for action in the spring of 2013. The field allows a unique opportunity for soccer, lacrosse and football teams of all levels to improve their speed and level of play.
The next great area of growth is the necessity for an additional gymnasium to accommodate our large winter sports program. Jenny’s Gym is in the design and fundraising phase to provide state-of-the-art space for basketball, volleyball and wrestling games and tournaments.
Jenny’s Gym is named for Jenny Cernuto, a 2011 graduate who went home to be with the Lord one month after graduation. Her family created the Jennifer Rose Cernuto Foundation to provide scholarships and facilities for female athletes like Jenny. Jenny’s gym will be located on our 31-acre campus.
In 2015, SouthLake Christian also completed work necessary on a 3.1 cross country course on our beautiful property adjacent to Lake Norman. A baseball complex, also to be located on our property, will soon be under construction.
