The York Catholic District School Board, in partnership with the Woodbridge Sports Dome, held the official Grand Opening of the Woodbridge Sports Dome at Holy Cross Catholic Academy on June 10, 2022.
The Grand Opening featured a ribbon cutting, musical performances by Holy Cross CA students, recognition of the OFSAA gold medal boys soccer champs, and a tour of the facility.
“Having a domed sports field will certainly benefit our Holy Cross students, as well as our community members and local athletic teams that will share this space,” said Chair Elizabeth Crowe. “The YCDSB has a long-standing history of working with municipalities and community organizations to develop facilities that enhance our students’ educational experiences while, at the same time, benefiting the community at large.”
Director Domenic Scuglia said that “As a board, we are so excited for our students and staff to explore and use this first-rate facility. The potential opportunities that could be made available are endless. Go Hawks!”
The facility is a 100,000 sq. ft indoor all-season dome structure that specializes in soccer, volleyball, and basketball. It is one of the largest domes in Ontario. It includes state-of-the-art LED lighting and a large skylight section to increase the indoor ambience.
The Sports Dome supports the High Performer Athlete (HPA) program offered at Holy Cross Catholic Academy. This program allows students to earn credits for their training and to have a modified school schedule to facilitate before school or after school training schedules.
