Callaway Athletics - Multi-Purpose Facility
Troup County School System, LaGrange, Georgia
Callaway High School in Troup County, GA has a earned quite a reputation for the quality of its school athletic programs. The school wanted to add a multifunction athletic facility that would create an indoor training facility to allow athletes to continue to train year-round regardless of weather. 2WR teamed with G3 consulting and the school athletic director to study similar facilities around the state, taking lessons from the best to provide a truly multi-functional athletic venue.
The new facility has an indoor astro turf field, batting cage, physical training room complete with whirlpool tubs, boys and girls athletic locker rooms and showers, coach’s locker room and conference room, concessions, public restrooms, a large screen projection for reviewing game films, and a significant amount of much-needed athletic storage. The facility also provides two durable steel frame camera towers overlooking the football field and tennis courts. Coaches (and quite a few SEC recruiters) will have a 92’ long x 8’ wide raised deck viewing platform overlooking the practice field; a unique feature in Georgia high school athletics. The camera towers are equipped with a public address system allowing the school administration to use the facility as a school emergency evacuation rally spot as well as providing the band director a platform for the direction of band practice.
