Look Around Lubbock: Sports Performance Center

The Sports Performance Center is a new $48 million multi-purpose facility that will impact all 17 intercollegiate sports at Texas Tech University.

Texas Tech Matador Qualifier is Friday, Feb. 16 starting at 3 p.m. For tickets and more information, click here.
 
"The Sports Performance Center, which was funded entirely through philanthropic gifts to The Campaign for Fearless Champions, is among the first multi-sport venues in the country, providing Texas Tech student-athletes a state-of-the-art facility for daily training and competition.
 
The facility includes the Petersen Family Indoor Football Practice Facility, an indoor track and field competition complex with seating for 1,500 fans, a strength and conditioning area, the Becky and Kelly Joy Family Sports Medicine Center and the PlainsCapital Bank Nutrition Center.
 
"This is truly a remarkable facility," Tech Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. "We could have never dreamed to build a facility like this without the vision and generosity of our most loyal donors. The Sports Performance Center will impact each of our student-athletes as it is one of the best training and competition venues in intercollegiate athletics today."
 
The Sports Performance Center marks the most ambitious project to date of The Campaign for Fearless Champions, which has already funded 22 of 25 facilities projects, surpassed its goal of raising $10 million in student-athlete scholarship endowments and exceeded its goal of securing a $5 million endowment for the J.T. & Margaret Talkington Leadership Academy, a first-of-its-kind, leadership and career development program that prepares student-athletes for success after graduation.
 
"The Sports Performance Center epitomizes the difference that philanthropy can make in higher education," Texas Tech University System Chancellor Robert Duncan said. "Donors at every level shared Kirby Hocutt's vision for a facility that prioritizes student-athlete safety, performance and wellness, and the impact of their gifts will be the foundation for a generation of competition and performance at Texas Tech."
