Scheduled to be completed in January 2022, the new Braves Athletic Performance Center (BAPC) broke ground in July. 

 

“It’s always an arms race in facilities in all of college athletics all the way up to Division-I and I think we’re about to set the standard at this level,” Dillon Adams, director of athletic performance at Ottawa University, says about the huge addition to the athletic department. 

 

“I have no doubt and no problem saying it’s going to be the best in the NAIA, and it’s going to be better than most (in) Division-II by the time it’s said and done.” 

 

Adams has been with the school for four years. The addition of the BAPC has been on his list of things to do since he first came in 2018. 

    

With just under 9,000 square feet of strength and conditioning equipment, the BAPC will be able to give Braves athletes better training with capacity jumping from 45 in the current weight room to 72 in the new building. The increase in capacity means that scheduling will be less of a problem, and athletes will be able to work around the new academic schedule. 

 

Adams says, “It’s going to be much better scheduling-wise for our teams and better to accommodate what our teams needs are, as compared to trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.” 

 

Athletes will be able to now come in and work around their schedules because of the extra room which was not possible before.

    

He says, “Teams that are such large rosters that we can’t accommodate right now, I think they are going to see the biggest improvements and biggest change in what we’re able to do because I will be able to have our hands on every single athlete on this campus.”
