FLC Athletic Facility Upgrades

Fans in attendance at Whalen Gymnasium and Dirks Field this season will notice some upgrades. Whalen Gymnasium will feature new design elements from a new gym floor, which was completed in May 2022, to a lobby makeover. The revamped space will offer exterior fire pits and seating, a walk-up ticket window, a touchscreen Hall of Fame display, and other modern details that will help take the Skyhawk Athletics experience to the next level. Dirks Field is also undergoing a series of upgrades that will wrap up this summer. Thanks to a generous donation, lights can shine over the Dirks Field soccer pitch. The energy-efficient bulbs can be automatically controlled from a smartphone while complying with Durango night-sky regulations. Read more about the upgrades here
