Walz Human Performance Complex
Concordia has finished the first and second of three phases of construction for the Walz Human Performance Complex, a facility that stands among the finest facilities of its kind for any university of Concordia's size. Better yet, the Walz has already had a tremendous impact on students and faculty and athletics at Concordia.
Renovations are currently underway for the P.E. Building, including improvements for intramurals space (old gym), the addition of a wrestling room, overhauls of locker rooms, classroom/team areas, weight room, equipment space and offices.
Can I get a closer look at plans for the renovation work underway?

OTHER ATHLETIC FACILITIES
Concordia's track, field and stadium complex was dedicated in 1997 and stands as one of the finest within the Bulldogs' athletic conference, the GPAC, and within the entire NAIA. It is home to Concordia track and field, football and soccer programs.
With the addition of the Walz Human Performance Complex the stadium's north entrances will be revised and a dramatic architectural feature, the Walz radius, will be a feature behind the north end zone.
P.E. Building, the "Old Gym"
The Physical Education Building, dedicated in 1960, has been home to Concordia athletics for decades and will live on as it is incorporated in the Walz Human Performance Complex currently in progress.
How will it all fit together? See the available plans to find out how the P.E. Building will become a part of the Walz.
