Providing the Foundation for a Lifetime of Fitness
Hoffman Field House, Kingswood Oxford School
West Hartford, Connecticut
Phase two of Kingswood Oxford’s 2020 Vision, a five-year campus improvement plan features the transformation of the Brayton Athletic Center into a multipurpose field house complex and state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center. The project began in mid-2016 and lasted for approximately seven months. The renovations included changes to the Brayton Center, the field house, and the “L”.
The field house is air-conditioned and includes energy efficient lighting and high-end floor suitable for tennis practice and interscholastic competitions. It will has three basketball courts, providing space for intramurals, outside tournaments, and practice space.
The “L” includes a fitness center, yoga/aerobic exercise room, and an athletic hospitality room that can be utilized for alumni receptions, team dinners, recruiting visits, and meetings. The fitness center within the “L” is geared towards general exercising and is furnished with a variety of cardio equipment and Cybex and circuit training machines.
Kingswood Oxford looks to use these renovations to encourage and enable students to participate in various sports or self-motivated activity, and to remind students of the importance of lifetime fitness.
