A key athletics project will be considered for final approval by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, next week that would mean major improvements for two University of Iowa athletics programs—women’s gymnastics and the Spirit Squad.


A new Gymnastics and Spirit Squad Training Center would be built on the Hawkeye Campus, adjacent to the women’s soccer and field hockey facilities on Prairie Meadow Drive. The $20 million project—paid for by athletics department gifts and revenue—will include practice space, athletic training space, and offices.
