PALMER PARK

A NEW ERA

After 25 years of softball at The Park, the Cavaliers officially moved into their new home in 2020. Palmer Park, named after UVA softball legend Lisa Palmer, provides the Hoos with a home like no other in the country.

LOCKER ROOM

Located directly beneath the main concourse, Virginia's state of the art locker room provides a home for the Cavaliers like never before. 25 spacious lockers line the walls, adorned with the classic V-sabre and Virginia lettering.

TEAM LOUNGE

Located immediately adjacent to the locker room, the team lounge provides players an area to relax, hang out with teammates or grab a bite to eat. The area features couches and a large TV for players to enjoy, a kitchenette and tables, along with a refrigerator stocked by UVA Sports Nutrition.

THE FIELD

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Located beyond the left field wall at Palmer Park, the Player Development Center is a space like the Cavaliers have never had before. The 60' x 60' indoor facility features three batting cages and a dedicated pitching/tee lane. The PDC is available to student-athletes 24/7, allowing players to work individually on their own schedule. The batting cages also collapse to the wall, giving the team space to work infield drill in inclement weather.

FILM & MEETING ROOM

Palmer Park also includes a large space dedicated to team meetings and scouting. The meeting room is located immediately inside the player's entrance to the stadium and features an 85" TV, seating for the entire team and a coaches' conference room. Here the Cavaliers gather to study film and go through scouting reports. The meeting space is also a popular spot for players to work on school work and hold 1-on-1 breakdowns with assistant coaches.

TRAINING ROOM

Also included in the Cavaliers' new home is a fully-functioning athletic training room. Palmer Park gives players and training staff a dedicated area with two training tables, a taping table, hot and cold hydrotherapy tubs, an ice machine and more. What once required a drive across Grounds is now only steps away at Palmer Park.
