Emmanuel College welcomes community members and beyond to use our facilities for events, camps and recreation with the proper approval.

Shaw Athletic Center is a state-of-the-art facility for use by athletes, students and the community alike. The 40,000 square-foot center was completed in 2012 and houses a 4,000 square-foot fitness center, aquatic center, bowling alley, basketball and volleyball courts, an indoor track, locker rooms, and an athletic training room.

The fitness center contains state-of-the-art equipment manufactured by TRUE Fitness, Paramount Equipment and Legend Fitness.  Equipment includes treadmills, recumbent bicycles, Stairmasters, ellipticals and individual machines for specialized muscle groups.

The aquatic center has a 9-lane collegiate size pool with a pool lift chair. Indoor track is a 3 lane 200-meter track around the perimeter of the basketball and volleyball courts. The bowling alley has 8 lanes that makes it perfect for parties and get togethers. Additional fees apply.
