Student Health and Activities Center (SHAC)

Opened in 2000, the Student Health and Activities Center is the focal point of the athletic program at Owens Community College. 

The complex, affectionately known as the SHAC, is one of the finest facilities at the two-year level in the country.  

The athletic offices are headquartered in the SHAC, which also includes the individual sport coaches’ offices and basketball/volleyball arena. All student-athletes benefit from a training room, spacious locker rooms and first-rate fitness center, including free weights, machine weights and aerobics center as well as a running track.  The SHAC'S multi-purpose intramural courts also are utilized for Express team and individual practices, converting to batting cages for baseball and softball; while also being used for indoor soccer training and the court sports for men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball.

The SHAC has played host to many high profile events, including most recently the 2011, 2012 and 2013 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Women's Volleyball Championships. This November, the SHAC will host the Region XII volleyball tournament.
