Outdoor Facilities

Here at LSSU we don't have the beautiful warm weather as much as we'd like to, but when we do, we take full advantage of it. The Norris Center Side Field is home to Intramural Sports during the fall semester for organized competitive matches. Sports included are Soccer, Softball, Football, and Ultimate Frisbee. Plans to revamp this field are currently underway, and Lake State in the future could see a Division II Soccer and Lacrosse team.

The Outdoor Tennis Courts on the South side of the Norris Center are home to Lake State Tennis during the warmer months. Open to the public, these courts are a normal hard court surface, and the lights can be used for matches after the sun sets.

The beach volleyball courts can be found tucked in between the Student Village, LSSU Apartments, and The Campus Book Store. These courts are utilized almost every day through the warm months, and host competitive 4v4 beach volleyball matches during the Fall Semester.

Other Facilities

The firing range is used by the LSSU Criminal Justice Department for training purposes. The range is also rented out by local and federal Law Enforcement.

The Norris Center Pool is considered to many as a "hidden gem" when the cold months hit. Kept to a warm humid temperature, the pool offers a variety of programs ranging from scuba diving, to Intramural Water Polo.

The Bud Cooper Gymnasium is home to Lake State Men's and Women's Basketball, as well as Women's Volleyball. The gym is a mult-purpose facility, and can be converted over to a two room exhibition center.

Pictured above is the Norris Center Dance Room. In this picture the room has mats laid down for use by the LSSU School of Criminal Justice MCOLES academy, which assists in their training to become certified police officers. When the mats are rolled up the dance room presents itself as a normal dance studio, complete with ballet bars, and mirrors. The room is also utilized for yoga, zumba, Insanity, and other workout programs/classes on campus.
