Part of the University of Virginia athletics department’s mission to provide the best experience for its student-athletes and fans is to build and maintain the highest quality facilities in the country. This purpose is aimed at attracting and developing the best student-athletes annually and providing fans with a top-notch match day experience.

The outdoor courts will be adjacent to our indoor courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club, one of the top indoor tennis facilities in the nation, which includes six courts in an indoor tennis stadium with seating for 1,200 spectators. The facility has been the site of past ITA National Individual Indoor Championships and ITA Men's Mideast Regional Championships.

Master Plan

Our Vision Forward: The new athletics complex redefines how we educate our student-athletes by improving our facilities and the support we provide as they study to achieve academic excellence, develop the necessary skills to become citizen leaders for tomorrow and train to compete for championships.

The complex, with an estimated cost of $180 million, includes a Football Operations Center, an Olympic Sports Center designed to provide support to all 750 student-athletes competing in 27 varsity sports, three natural grass practice fields and the renovation of the McCue Center — the current home of Virginia Football and the primary office building for athletics administration and a majority of our coaches.

EXCELLENT SUPPORT

The excellence achieved by Virginia’s student-athletes has not been confined to competitive venues. Thanks to strong support systems, UVA student-athletes consistently excel in the classroom and participate in many extracurricular activities. In 2020, 496 Cavaliers were named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll that recognizes student-athletes who registered a grade point average of 3.00 or better for the entire academic year. The honor of honors is graduating from Virginia and making the walk down the Lawn.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Each team has a dedicated coach to help utilize the most appropriate training methods each individual student-athlete based on his or her needs, end goals and baseline readiness.

SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY

The mission of the University of Virginia Sport Psychology unit is to promote mental well-being, safety, and optimal performance in all aspects of student-athlete life. We respect and sustain our student-athletes’ autonomy, resiliency, and confidentiality. We provide confidential one-to-one meetings for members of all 27 of our Division-I sports. Through enhancing student-athletes' ability to embrace challenges successfully, we help optimize their experience in their roles as students, as athletes, and as community members. We also lead team meetings and consult with coaches and other support staff to enhance performance, communication, and coping skills of our entire Athletics Department. Our model of having two full-time licensed sport psychologists "in-house" in the athletics department is one of only four of its kind in the nation and sets the standard for other Division-I schools.

WAHOOWA!

Virginia has many traditions held dear by Cavalier fans and alums that originated from its athletics program. The school colors of orange and blue are proudly displayed everywhere around Grounds and in Charlottesville. Cavaliers, Wahoos and Hoos are used interchangeably to refer to the University teams and players. Cavman, the beloved mascot of UVA, is a crowd favorite. Singing “The Good Old Song” is a tradition that dates back to the 1890s when fans welcomed back a victorious football team and it is still sung today when the Cavaliers score at football games and at the conclusion of all athletics contests as well as other University functions.

The passionate fan base is very vocal and loyal, while the ‘HooCrew,’ the UVA student fan group, won the 2015 Naismith Award for the nation’s best men's basketball student section. Wahoowa!
