The GW-Mount Vernon Athletics Facility

The GW-Mount Vernon Athletics Facility opened in 2001 and is home to the Colonials' soccer, lacrosse, tennis and softball teams. The facility includes a synthetic turf surface for soccer and lacrosse which was renovated in summer 2011, a softball diamond, a six-lane, 25-yard outdoor pool and 11 hard courts for tennis. The lacrosse program competes on the newly renovated field turf field. They play on the state-of-the art FieldTurf Revolution synthetic turf.

In addition to coaching offices and on-site locker rooms for home and visiting teams, a fully-staffed athletic training room also is housed in the facility.

In 2004, the venue played host to the Atlantic 10 Men's Soccer Championship for the first time. A record crowd of 811 spectators attended the title match on Nov. 14, 2004, and saw the host Colonials knock off Temple, 2-0, to win their second conference championship in three seasons. The Mount Vernon facility also played host to the Atlantic 10 Women's Lacrosse Championship for the first time in league history in May 2006. The facilities are used for intercollegiate team practices and competitions, student club team practices and competitions, intramural and recreational activities, as well as occasional university and other special events.
