Athletics

Where can I exercise?
We have multiple exercise areas for Coe alumni to utilize. For information about using these facilities, please visit the Fitness Center Memberships page.

 
Clark Field and Stadium:
A state-of-the-art track surrounds Clark Field.

Clark Racquet Center:
Clark Racquet Center has ample locker rooms for both men and women.  Cardio and weight training machines are available.

Eby Fieldhouse:
Eby includes three basketball courts that can be separated by curtains or opened into one large facility for throwing, indoor soccer, baseball and softball practices, and all club and recreational activities.

Fitness Center and Bridge:
A key feature of the facility is the cardio bridge over College Drive that joins the ARC addition to the Clark Racquet Center. This bridge, which is mostly glass, provides a stunning visual feature for the Coe community and visitors alike. The cardio bridge has treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, and a stretching area.

Kohawk Arena:
The Kohawk Arena seats over 1,600 spectators and is home to our men's and women's basketball teams, volleyball team, and wrestling team. The space can transform from one main court to two courts side by side. It has an upper concourse level which adds a top-down feel to the arena.
 
Wrestling Room:
This area features a state-of-the-art wrestling room. It includes a team locker room, coaches' locker room, sauna, and in-ground cooling plunge. Even in the wrestling tradition-rich state of Iowa, Coe is unique in foregrounding wrestling in this way.
