KAMLOOPS — The Thompson Rivers University (TRU) WolfPack officially opened the Sports Legacy Fund High Performance Training Centre Wednesday.

A state-of-the-art training facility, the space was made possible with a $500,000 donation from the Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund (KSLF), of which $375,000 was earmarked for the Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund High Performance Centre and $125,000 went toward supporting student awards and scholarships.

“The Sports Legacy Fund High Performance Training Centre is a great addition to our university,” said Curtis Atkinson, TRU director of athletics and recreation.

“This space will help TRU student-athletes reach their full potential by developing both on and off the field of play. We can’t thank the Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund enough for helping our athletes take another step on the path of achieving their goals.”

TRU coaches and staff, KSLF board members as well as WolfPack student-athletes and community members were invited to the opening and to tour the facility that features nine weightlifting platforms, a short sprint track as well as a plethora of free weights.

Situated in the upper level of the TRU gym building, the Sports Legacy Fund High Performance Training Centre expands training opportunities for TRU student-athletes and helps push their performance to a new level.
