Kelly Family Sports Center (formerly Laker Turf Building)

The Kelly Family Sports Center was designed to provide more recreational opportunities to our student population. With the growth of GVSU came the growth of many programs needing athletic and recreation space. The Movement Science Department, Campus Rec. Department, Club Sport teams, ICA athletics, and general student recreation participation have all increased significantly. With the addition of the turf building comes more space opportunity for a variety of recreational use within the turf building as well as the Fieldhouse.

Originally named the Laker Turf Building, it was renamed the Kelly Family Sports Center in 2011 after Notre Dame Football Coach, Brian Kelly.
